The Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 match between Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings was abandoned before the end of the first innings due to rain in Lahore on Friday.

After being put in to bat, the Sultans had scored 102 runs at the loss of six wickets when rain stopped play on the second last ball of the 17th over. Shahid Afridi was not out after hitting a 17-ball 35.

The match was subsequently called off and both teams were awarded one point each.

Multan Sultans were 53-4 at the end of 10 overs.

Sultans’ Moeen Ali was sent back to the pavilion in the fifth over, managing 29 runs from 21 balls.
