PSL 2019 Match 20: Karachi Kings beat Lahore Qalandars by 5 wickets

DUBAI: Karachi Kings thrashed Lahore Qalandars by five wickets in the 20th match of Pakistan Super League 2019 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday.

Middle-order batsman Iftikhar Ahmed smashed 33 runs off 25 balls with two boundaries and six to ease Karachi Kings’ 134 run-chase after an initial stutter.

Karachi Kings  opted to bowl first and  restricted Lahore Qalandars to 133 runs in the second fixture. AB de Villiers with his 33 runs innings off 32 balls remained the highest scorer for the Qalandars. While  Sohail Akhtar contributed unbeaten 29 runs in the death overs of the innings.

Karachi’s bowlers sensibly bawled to restrict Qalanadars to a meager total of 133, Iftikhar Ahmed took two wickets while skipper Imad Wasim, Muhammad Aamir and Umer Khan took one each.
