Quetta skipper Sarfraz won the toss and opted to bowl straight away.
The trick did not work this time. Lahore Qalandars’ change of batting order worked brilliantly, and the new pair of Fakhar Zaman (47) and Jason Roy (51) smashed Quetta bowlers all away, followed by a little cameo by Rizwan down the order.
Cameron Delport, who was coming in place of Grant Elliott, proved his selection right and scored 35 off 24 balls to take Qalandars score to 200/3.
Quetta started off shakily losing both openers cheaply. Rilee Rossow (33) and Pietersen made the game ahead steadily. Before Sarfraz (44) chipped in. He and KP (88*) dismantled Lahore Qalandars bowling line up.
He hit eight sixes in the innings, scoring 88 off just 42 balls. On his return to the dugout, KP was greeted by the Sir Viv Richards.
He was the undisputed Man Of the Match.
