Karachi Kings on Saturday qualified for their first-ever PSL finalafter a thrilling victory over Multan Sultans in Qualifier at the National Stadium, Karach that needed a Super Over to find the winner.

The Kings, after winning the toss and opting to bowl first, dominated pretty much from the start, restricting Multan to a lowly 141-7 and were bossing the run chase when they suddenly suffered an inexplicable meltdown in the 17th over when their captain Babar Azam got out.

From 117-3, they slumped to 135-7, requiring captain Imad Wasim to bail them out, which he did, hitting a four off the final over to force a Super Over.

In the tie-breaker, Karachi set a 14-run target, which Mohammad Amir successfully defended, thanks to some shrewd death bowling.

The Kings will play the winner of Eliminator 2 tomorrow. The Sultans, meanwhile, will get another chance to make the final tomorrow.
