Twice in a row now that they haven't budged under the pressure. Chasing seems to be the mantra at the moment in this PSL season with teams batting first yet to win a game. Will that change soon? Your guess is as good as mine. On that note, it's a wrap to today's coverage. Until next time, it's a goodbye from us. Wahab Riaz | Winning captain: We were confident after the chase in the previous game. We knew it's a good pitch and we backed ourselves. I think I have to work hard on my bowling. As captain I can't afford to let my team down. Need to execute better. I knew that if I hit a couple of sixes, I could seal things. Happy that it came off. Haider Ali | Player of the Match: I'm feeling really good. Happy to perform and contribute towards the team's win again. There was pressure early but myself and Imam thought that we just needed a good partnership to get our team on track. Playing with experienced players and under good coaches helps me learn each day. Sarfaraz Ahmed | Losing captain: I think fielding is extremely crucial in T20 cricket. If we had gotten Rutherford run out, the game would have been done. It was difficult to stop him at the end. The pitches are really good to bat on, and the bowling plans haven't been executed properly as well. Bowling with a wet ball is never easy. We can definitely bounce back. Sherfane Rutherford: One of the best feelings for me, because PSL has some of the best bowlers. It was a good game. I told Wahab that if I miss you need to take him (Steyn) down and it's good to see the skipper step up. He (Sammy) gives me confidence to express myself and it's been good so far. 00:07 Local Time, 19:07 GMT, 00:37 IST: The chasing streak of this PSL season remains intact. Zalmi with back-to-back run chases of 190-plus. It was a collective effort from the batters after the early loss of Akmal and Kohler-Cadmore. Imam created some momentum upfront, Haider took it forward before the trio of Malik-Rutherford-Wahab combined to give the finishing touches. Quetta were able to control things for a major part of the innings but then lost the plot towards the back end with the dew also playing a part. This defeat will really dent their morale, because their batting sans the 20th over was of highest order. In hindsight, that over from Saqib eventually proved crucial. 19.3 Mohammad Hasnain to Rutherford, FOUR , Zalmi have aced another huge chase!

Zalmi seem to love chasing big scores. Twice in a row now that they haven't budged under the pressure.
