Rvel Zahid: Islamabad United bounce back emphatically after getting edged out by Quetta Gladiators in the tournament opener. They romp to victory, courtesy of their stalwart Luke Ronchi, who raced to 74, and the overseas signings lived up to the billing. Multan, though, looked a different outfit today after trampling over Qalandars last night.168 wasn't enough on this pitch and it became tough for Multan bowlers to defend the small total with the dew factor coming into play and Ronchi firing on all cylinders. Zeeshan Ashraf's responsible knock is a good omen for Sultans; he played a very fine knock today especially keeping in view how he kept losing his teammates. Join us tomorrow for another double-header - first up Karachi Kings will lock horns with Quetta Gladiators at National Stadium, Karachi and then Lahore Qalandars will tussle with Islamabad United at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

Pitched up and plugging away outside off, tonks it off the front foot to cover

16.2 - M Ilyas to L Ronchi

Bit of an anticlimax as Ronchi goes hard at the ball and Vince times his jump to perfection at short midwicket, plucked it out of thin air. Brilliant take but take a bow for Ronchi who only took one game to get back to his menacing best. He is the main reason behind Islamabad's success over the years

15.6 - M Irfan to D Malan

Short of a length, floating around off stump line, flicked using his subtle wrists to the on side. Is Irfan tiring already?

15.5 - M Irfan to L Ronchi

Back of a length, outside off, slices it down to point off the backfoot. Will he go for the glory shot?

Round the wicket, half-tracker outside off, punched down the ground, mid-off swoops to his right and cuts it off

15.3 - M Irfan to D Malan

Shorter length, floating around that off stump line, he rides the bounce, gets on top of it and tucks it around the corner, easy single. Irfan has run out of ideas

Goes off the radar, sprays it down the leg side and nothing going in Multan's way tonight
