Nudged off the pads and that will be the game. Islamabad win by four wickets and they go into tomorrow's match against Peshawar Zalmi while Karachi go home. It could have been a lot different had Karachi's final 10 overs with the bat gone differently but they didn't have enough runs on the board to try and defend. Alex Hales (41) and Cameron Delport (38) were the leading scorers for Islamabad and their good start made it a little easier for the finisher Asif Ali.

19.3 - M Amir to A Ali

Length ball, down leg side on the back foot working, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs.

Such a good catch in this situation. Swirling away from him under lights yet Yamin has made good ground and made it look fairly simple. Will there be a twist in the tail?.

19.2 - M Amir to F Ashraf

Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air under control to deep point, by Yamin.

Babar Azam goes for glory on the boundary but can't reel it in. Bounces away from him and into the rope. Two to win.

After such a good over Asif Ali keeps his composure and dispatches the full delivery. That could be the game for Islamabad.
