Martin Guptill's unbeaten 86 runs innings helps Quetta Gladiators beat Karachi Kings by four wickets in the 22nd match of the Pakistan Super League season eight (PSL 8). The match was played at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

Quetta chased down the 165-run target in 19.5 overs to register their second win in the tournament.

After being put into bat, Karachi Kings posted a total of 164/5 in their 20 overs thanks to Adam Rosington and Imad Waseem's responsible batting. Adam scored his personal best 69 at the top to keep Karachi floated despite consecutive wickets. Later, Imad, 30, and Aamer Yamin's 11-ball 23 helped them post a fighting total of 164/5.

In response, Quetta had another stuttering start, losing the first five wickets for 63 in 9.5 overs. However, a 95-run stand between Martin Guptill (86*) and Sarfaraz Ahmed (29) brought Quetta close to their second win in the tournament off eight games.

With 8 runs needed off the final over, Sarfaraz took a single on the first ball but got run out on the second. With 7 required from four balls, Dwaine Pretorius, who was making his PSL debut, walked in and scored 10 runs in the next three balls to take Quetta over the line.
