Zalmi captain Shoaib Malik accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Iftikhar Ahmed. The charges were levelled by on-field umpires Rashid Riaz and Shozab Raza and third umpire Ahsan Raza.

Kings won the match by six wickets – played at National Stadium – as they chased down a 189-run target with three balls spare.
