See you next time! Rizwan | Player of the Match and Multan captain: We've faltered in the death overs previously but we covered that really well today. Can't relax after a win. Really happy with how we rectified our death bowling issues. And we took that momentum into our innings with the bat. Don't believe the toss has an influence. I look at the strength of our team before deciding. Sohail Akhtar | LQ captain: We were 15-20 runs short and then we fielded poorly as well. We are looking at spin options and that could strengthen our bowling in the next few matches. It looked like the wicket would help the fast bowlers when we saw it at first. Shoaib Maqsood: Credit must go to Rizwan, who took the game away in the powerplay. When I came on to bat I wasn't middling the ball well. But he was playing well so I could take my time. You have to spend 15-20 balls on this wicket before you go for your shots. The pitch was quite similar in the first innings, but given that 196 was chased down a couple of nights ago, the teams would rely on chasing. 18:30 Local Time, 13:30 GMT, 19:00 IST: Multan seal the win with close to four overs to spare. A proper thrashing of the Lahore Qalandars here in Karachi. Rizwan led the way in the chase, continuing his amazing run of form with yet another amazing knock. He got Multan well ahead of the rate in the powerplay and then, helped by a couple of dropped catches, proceeded to put this game to bed. Maqsood supported him beautifully in the partnership of 110 for the third wicket, initially taking some time to settle in and then opening up later on. Apart from Shaheen Afridi, who sizzled with the new ball and kept bowling with a lot of heart even when the game was done, there's little else to write home about Lahore's bowling effort.

Not enough runs on the board for Lahore today despite Hafeez's knock of 60. And then those lapses in the field just sealed their fate for good measure. Can't afford that against someone who's batting as well as Rizwan is at the moment. That's all we have from this one. See you next time!
