The match ended in a very controversial manner as Qalandars who needed 15 from the last over managed to score 14. The match turned in the last over itself as Sohail Akhtar scored 12 runs off the first three balls of the over.

The next ball was a dot as the Kings affected a run out and the equation was reduced down to four off two balls.

The Qalandars managed to get a single of the fifth ball of the over which left Qalandars requiring three of the last ball of the over. The drama started then, when Akhtar was caught at long on off the final delivery of the match. Umpires to re-checked and the ball was called a no-ball.

In the meanwhile, the batsmen had completed a run but the umpires then cancelled the run as batsmen had just crossed each other when the ball was caught. The ball was declared dead and the Qalandars required 2 off the last ball which ideally should have been 1 off the last delivery.

Qalandars managed to tie the match and then won the match in the super over. However, the incidence created a lot of confusion for the players, officials and the fans who then took to Twitter to express their views about the incidence.
