Pakistan Super League

Karachi eliminate Islamabad United

AFP, SHARJAH: Karachi Kings upset defending Pakistan Super League champions Islamabad by 44 runs in Sharjah on Wednesday as a host of foreign stars refused to travel to violence-plagued Lahore for the final citing safety fears.
Paceman Mohammad Amir (3-7) and spinners Imad Wasim (3-18) and Usama Mir (3-24) sent Islamabad crashing to 82 all out in 15.2 overs as Karachi defended 126, the lowest total in Pakistan Super League history.
Opener Asif Ali played a lone hand of 39 as stalwarts like Brad Haddin (nought), Misbah-ul-Haq (13) and Shane Watson (eight) all failed.
Karachi's batsmen had also struggled after left-arm paceman Rumman Raees returned figures of 4-25 in his four overs.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday decided to still stage the final in the city despite last week's two bomb blasts which killed 22 people and left over 100 injured.
However, five Quetta players -- Kevin Pietersen, Luke Wright, Rilee Rossouw, Tymal Mills and Nathan McCullum -- have refused to go to Pakistan over security fears.
The PCB insist they will be replaced by some other foreign players.
Lahore has been the scene of violence affecting cricketers before. In 2009, Sri Lanka's team bus was attacked by gunmen who killed six policemen.
