Hey folks! Here comes the 2nd Qualifying Final which is also called as ‘Eliminator’, between Islamabad United and Karachi Kings. It’s been another fantastic contest! Let’s see which team got eliminated! Scroll down.
In this 2nd qualifying final, Islamabad United won the toss and elected to field first. Karachi Kings batted first and to be honest, they were really bad with their batting except Ravi Bopara, the acting captain tonight of Karachi Kings. It seemed pretty incredible and absolutely a right decision from Islamabad United to bowl first and restrict the opposition to achievable target; that’s what they did! Their bowler Mohammad Sami just thrashed the batting lineup of Karachi Kings; taking five wickets in the match fabulously. Ravi Bopara played quiet good as it was too much pressure on him as a captain, but he did well, scored some runs which helped Karachi Kings to take their score above 100. Well, Karachi Kings gave the target of 112 to Islamabad United which is just quiet achievable score peacefully.
In the 2nd innings, Islamabad United took a handsome start as they were quiet relaxed about everything and hitting shots sensibly. The score seemed just nothing, and there is nothing to blame the bowlers of Karachi Kings to defend such a little total in a contest which is important to win for the both sides. Dwayne Smith and Brad Haddin made a good partnership, unfortunately, Sharjeel Khan’s wicket was taken and that was the only wicket taken by the Karachi Kings. They couldn’t do anything more harder to defend this total because it was huge pressure and the batsmen were looking pretty calm and peaceful to keep progressing, scoring and finally, getting a victory. They chased the score in just 14.3 overs and beat Karachi Kings by 9 wickets. It’s been another terrific contest, but not like the one we witnessed yesterday. Well, Karachi Kings have to pack their bags and go back home. Congratulations to Islamabad United for their important victory!
