Earlier, Karachi Kings skipper Shoaib Malik won the toss and elected to bat first but his players  could not resist against deadly bowling by right-arm medium pacer Grant Elliot. Only four batsmen entered into the double figures.

Shoaib himself was the top scorer with 45, scored off 38 balls with three fours and two sixes. He was followed by James Vince (23), Ravi Bopara (14) and Shakib Al Hasan (10).

Their most in-form batsman and the allround star of the previous match Bopara also failed to make any significant contribution.

Elliot finished his bowling quota of four runs capturing four wickets for just 15 runs.
