KARACHI: Karachi Kings on Wednesday beat Peshawar Zalmi by six wickets to dethrone them as league leaders in Pakistan Super League's match 13.

Karachi Kings were given a target of 189 runs by the Peshawar Zalmi and the home team chased it with three balls to spare.

The Kings were in trouble early in the innings when they lost three wickets for 43 runs by the end of the seventh over.

But a 118-run partnership between Babar Azam and Mohmmad Nabi helped the Kings secure victory. Babar Azam remained unbeaten, scoring 77 runs off 47 balls.

The Kings lost Mohammad Nabi after he made 67 during the 17th over with the team still requiring 28 runs from 21 balls. However, Babar Azam did not let that hinder the team’s chances for a victory.

Earlier, Peshawar were asked to bat first by Karachi Kings after Imad Wasim won the toss.

Peshawar were looking to set a below par score after they lost three wickets in the powerplay at just 39 runs due to the two-wicket over by debutant Abbas Afridi.

Till the 10th over Karachi Kings looked like in command at the end of when Peshawar were 69/4 and had lost Haider Ali just when he was looking to charge.

However, an 82-run partnership between West Indian Sherfane Rutherford and Englishman Ravi Bopara had taken the game away from Karachi’s position.

Rutherford fell to Mohammad Ilyas in the 18th over but by that time the stage was set for Amad Butt to propel the Peshawar Zalmi to 188.

The all rounder hit Dan Christian for 32 runs at the last over to help his side put up a defendable total.
