Islamabad United Vs Karachi Kings | Match 21 | PSL 7. They become the first team in the PSL to lose all seven of its PSL games and the first team to be eliminated from the competition this year.However, United’s one-run victory was ultimately far too dramatic to be reduced to numbers.

Asif Ali had to bowl three overs and took two wickets in his first over as Kings chased 192 when two important United bowlers, Shadab Khan and Zeeshan Zameer, were forced off the field with injuries.Even though United’s spirited stand between Imad Wasim and Qasim Akram and their generous fielding at the end of the game made this game a contest, they had just enough runs from several cameos with the bat to avoid being penalized for their waste.

It boiled down to a nail-gnawing last over from Waqas Maqsood, in which Rulers required eight.A boundary off the second ball brought the score to a run-a-ball, but the Kings needed two wickets off the final delivery to win. Chris Jordan spooned it back to Maqsood, who some way or another dropped it, however figured out how to assemble and impact an immediate hit at the non-striker’s end.Jordan was just inches away from making the popping crease that would have won the Super Over for the Kings, and United had barely managed to hold on to their victory in a game that they should have won long ago.

Joined had serious issues all through their safeguard of 191 with Shadab and Zameer missing, and for a significant part of the initial ten overs, the Rulers expected to wait for their opportunity, remain in the game, and target whoever bowled the other three overs.But Asif Ali, who had taken two T20 wickets in his career, came up big. He took Sharjeel out of a poor long-hop with his first ball and caught Mohammad Nabi four deliveries later.The Kings were 80 for 5, and it looked like the game was over.

However, Pakistan U-19 captain Qasim and Imad formed a magnificent counterattacking duo that brought their team close to victory.Imad Wasim scored 55 off 28, and Qasim capitalized on United’s lack of discipline on the field to score an unbeaten 51 off 26.As the nerves tightened and the runs flowed freely, at least half a dozen catches were shelled, and one was allowed to turn into two and four.Another death-overs pasting was delivered to Hasan Ali;In the final over, he was run out for 16 runs, leaving Qasim with so little to work with.

You’ve probably seen United bat every time if you’ve seen them bat once.Muhammad Akhlaq and Rahmanullah Gurbaz both suffered early defeats, but this did not stop them from pursuing the bowling.Again, they didn’t have a particularly strong player, but five batters scored between 22 and 34 with strike rates above 130.Asif Ali (28 off 11) and Faheem Ashraf (29* off 10) both blitzed a 57 off a combined 21 balls at the end, helping United rack up a massive 78 runs in the final six overs.They would need each and every one of those a few hours later as they just about held off a resurgent Kings team and strengthened their own hopes of qualifying for the playoffs.
