Quetta gladiators Beat 168 for 6 (Guptill 86*, Sarfaraz 29, Shamsi 2-20) Karachi kings 164 for 6 (Rossington 69, Imad 30*, Aimal 2-26) with four wickets
Guptill was around at the other end, but there was little to presage what was to come in the last five overs. Aside from that hundred against Karachi, runs on the PSL haven’t really come for him, continuing a trend that has seen him lose form over the past year. He had shuffled along to 41 for 40, but the moment he gave Mohammad Amir a six in the 16th over, everything seemed to fall into place.
But the final blow was the 17th over where an unlucky Fuller was battered for 24 runs in an over, two sixes and three fours that changed the course of the game. Musa took a lot of punishment in the over that followed with another six and four, and Amir leaked 11 in his over to leave eight in the 20th.
Three quarters of the way through the chase they had no problem defending it. But Guptill was a sleeping dragon at the time, and when he awoke, all the kings could do was watch a miserable PSL campaign go up in smoke.
