The man of the moment for Kharian, Muhmmad Umar Waqas! An unbeaten 62 off just 33 deliveries carrying his bat in this run-chase that did get a bit tricky for them, not as they would have expected, but a win in the end nonetheless. They didn't start well in the powerplay and similar to what happened while Gladiators were batting, they lost early wickets and could not capitalize. None of the batsmen could really get going and it was a one-man show from Waqas that sealed the deal for them. Had it not been for his fabulous innings, Kharian would certainly have been on the other side of the result. 

Nadeem Muhammad bowled well at the top for the Gladiators picking up a couple of wickets and keeping things tight as well. Babar the skipper chipping in with two as well but he was slightly on the expensive side. Least to say, they just did not have enough on the board to play with in the end and the failure to pick up the key wicket of Waqas hurt them. 

Kharian may have gotten the win as they look to finish the tournament on a high but they will have to look into that batting from this game, that was dependent on a single batsmen! They bowled pretty well and did a decent job in the field as well but the batting let them down so to say with none of the batsmen getting to double figures except Waqas himself! For the moment, they will relish the win though and take this momentum into their next game straight up after this for the day! 
That will be the game for Kharian then! In the end winning with four balls and five wickets to spare. Not enough runs on the board for the Gladiators as they did manage to drag it to the final over but the difference between the two sides clearly being Muhammad Umar Waqas! An unbeaten match-winning knock from him taking his side over the line and a good all-round victory for them this!

Wickets continue to fall at the other end for Kharian but it shouldn't be much of a worry now with Waqas on the other end who is well set and smashing them brilliantly. Within touching distance now and the Gladiators needed the wicket of Waqas which they haven't been able to get. Still fighting though but it looks bleak for them. Kharian just one hit away now! 3 needed off 6
