Karachi Kings have qualified for the HBL PSL 6 playoffs after registering a 14-run win over Quetta Gladiators on Saturday.

KK successfully defended the 177-run target in match number 29 of the sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League at Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Cricket stadium.

The Kings got their breakthrough in the last ball of the fifth over, with Mohammad Ilyas dismissing Saim Ayub (19).

Saim Ayub had given an ideal start to the innings as he dispatched Imad Wasim for two sixes before hitting Amir for a boundary straight down the ground.

Unfortunately, Sarfaraz Ahmed’s unbeaten 51-run knock wasn’t enough to make Gladiators victor tonight.

A blinder of a knock of 45 from 13 balls, by KK’s allrounder Danish Aziz made the difference tonight.

This victory of KK means that Lahore Qalandars have crashed out of the tournament, joining in the last-placed Quetta Gladiators on the sidelines.
