Ahmed Noor The Left-Arms-American spinner from Afghanistan keeps Karachi King’s playoff hopes alive as they crush Lahore Qalandar’s sixth Pakistan Super League (PSL) victory in seven runs.
The platform was set up for Karachi 176/5 with their 88-run stands by Karachi and the Babar Azam(54) and Martin Guptill(43). Noor then had Lahore’s figures for 4-0-19-2.
Early but well with the second wrap Babar-Guptill stand Karachi lost Sharjeel. He got better. There was an awakening as they went from 109 runs to 132 runs to 5 wickets by the end of the seventeenth round.
Imad Wasim’s30 has 19 balls and Danish Aziz’s 16 balls have brought the much-needed late fireworks to the point 170 times ago. Lahore remained unhappy on his field when three times during his semi-century they dropped Babar’s catch.

In the first two six, Fakhar Zaman has smashed two but soon found it difficult. He fell quickly for 19, and 26 balls went off as the batsmen kept fighting for pace. Mohammad Hafeez has managed 36 runs, but Noor’s twin strikes and Agha Salman’s run-out meant that his side slipped to 92 runs in 14 overall to 5 wickets.
Tim David was in an unpardonable mood and his 34 balls were fortunate, as James Faulkner’s 33 balls were 18 balls away, too, had a share of fun. Their 58-runs are nervous to the left of Karachi.
Abbas Afridi, however, made a decisive advance on the last 18th ball, when he discharged David with a loss of Lahore 27. In the final, Faulkner came over as the chase was not closed by Rashid Khan and Shaheen Afridi.
