Sultans needed 16 off the last over, and Khushdil sealed the win with four consecutive boundaries
Multan Sultans 209 for 5 (Masood 83, Rizwan 69, Khushdil 18, Afridi 3-40) beat Lahore Qalandars 206 for 5 (Zaman 76, Ghulam 43) by five wickets
Faced with a steep target of 207, Sultans made a rapid start to their innings, with the openers Masood and Rizwan racing to 150 inside 15 overs. Masood was initially the more aggressive foil, slamming 14 fours and a six for his 50-ball 83, before Rizwan also picked up the pace, scoring 69 – his second consecutive half-century – with six fours and three sixes.
With the match finely poised, Afridi struck two more decisive blows in the penultimate over, removing both Maqsood and Tim David. That brought the equation down to 16 runs needed off the last over, bowled by Haris Rauf with Khushdil on strike. Going into this game, no chasing team in PSL history had ever scored more than 16 runs off the final over.
Khushdil, however, changed that, as he sealed the five-wicket victory with four swings of his bat. He blasted Rauf for three consecutive fours, before finishing off with a six over cover.
