PSL 2019, Karachi Kings vs Multan Sultans Highlights: The second game of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 turned out to be an absolute belter. Chasing 184 runs, Multan Sultans’ Masood and Evans were going at run a ball pace until Shoaib Malik arrived and took the game to Karachi. With the required rate hovering around 13 an over, it looked like a tough chase until Shoaib Karachi took Ravi Bopara to the cleaners with 24 from an over. Just as Sultans looked to be taking the game away, Amir and Shinwari struck to arrest the flow of runs.
Afridi and Azam added late runs and the chase once again looked alive by Amir struck to take his tally to four wickets and take the game away from Sultans. In the end, Sultans fell 7 runs short.
Earlier, Kings put together 183/6 from the 20 overs with Babar Azam and Liam Livingstone providing a thumping start to Karachi – putting together 157 runs for the opening wicket – the highest stand, for any wicket, in PSL history.
But, Livingstone’s departure put the brakes on Karachi’s smooth flow of runs as no one stepped up to take control or play a cameo role. Chris Green took three wickets to keep the pressure on as Karachi scored just 34 runs from last five overs.
