Kamran Akmal celebrates his fifty

Peshawar Zalmi 214 for 5 (Kamran 74, Imam 58, Delport 2-24) beat Islamabad United 166 for 9 (Walton 48, Faheem 31, Hasan Ali 3-29) by 48 runs

How the game played out

It was a game that really mattered, as for things as trivial as cricket matches matter on a day like this go. Followed by an emotional minute of silence - impeccably observed - at the National Stadium Karachi to mark the terror attacks in Christchurch, Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United, sporting black armbands, took the field in a virtual semi-final. Defending champions Islamabad were knocked out by a clinical Peshawar who, with their 48-run win, also avenged their loss to Islamabad in last season"s PSL final and reached the trophy match for the third successive year.
