Batting first, Quetta Gladiators batted reasonably consistently, with Rilee Rossouw 44 and Umar Akmal 55 top scoring and they were supported latterly, by a cameo innings from Anwar Ali, who hit 27* off 8 balls, at the end, taking their total to a competitive 186-5. Aamer Yamin 3-37 was the pick of the bowlers for Karachi Kings.
In reply, Karachi Kings got off to poor start with the score, at one stage 4-2, with Babar Azam and Colin Munro back in pavilion. However, Awais Zia and Colin Ingram steadied the innings and then Ingram 127*, in partnerships with Liam Livingstone and Ben Dunk, took the Kings to brilliant 6 wicket win.
Colin Ingram hit 12x4s and 8x6s in his innings and, as you can see in the photo, some of those hits ended up in the road, outside the ground - an absolutely brilliant knock! The first centurion of #HBLPSL 2019 Man of the Match - What a special night for @CAIngram41.
