Another attempt for SIX but this it's isnt enough to cross the line...fielder at long on takes a good diving catch. HBL 134/7
With a perfect timed six...Hasan Raza reaches his 50 in style, HBL 141/7
Just a single off the last delivery.

What a recovery by HBL, They ended at 148, means target will be 149 for PQA.

Hasan Raza's unbeaten 58* was highlight of the night.

Cameos from Humayun Farhat & Kamran Hussain also helped them to post a fighting total.
4th ball of the innings and Shahzaib hit away for SIX through covers.
another lofting shot for 4, Ehsan Adil is punished by Shahzaib Hasan.

PQA 20/0
Caught at covers, Shahzaib gone, Ehsan Adil must be relaxed now.

PQA 20/1

Asking rate is around 8 at the end of this over

2 consecutive boundaries for Khalid Latif and 11 runs in this over, exactly what PQA needed.

This could be the turning point of the game. PQA was steering the innings with decent pace but these two wickets brought HBL back in the game big time

Good over by Sarmad, 2 wickets in this over for HBL..

Some hint of rain showers there, not too much to affect the game now.

20 to win from last over, still some hopes for PQA left.
That's it, HBL won by 14 runs and are in the finals.
