Majority of the foreign players of Karachi Kings Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi have agreed to visit Pakistan for the knockout games
He added that other than declaring a state of emergency in the KMC hospitals and issuing high alert instructions, the rescue 112 ambulance service would also be made operational at the National Stadium during the PSL final.
In a match that guaranteed qualification to final for the victor, the Karachi franchise won the toss and opted to bowl.
Karachi Kings have got permission from Pakistan Cricket Board to include Twenty20 specialist Mukhtar Ahmed for Wednesday's game as well as spinner Zulfiqar Babar and Karachi youngster Danish Aziz. The decision, however, backfired as the Zalmi's opening pair of Kamran Akmal and Andre Fletcher gave their team a resounding start with a 107-run partnership.
Peshawar will now take on Karachi Kings in the second eliminator in Lahore on Wednesday and the victor of that match will face Islamabad United in the final in Karachi on Sunday. Joe Denly (79 not out) and Babar Azam (63) then stitched a 117-run partnership for the second wicket to take their team within touching distance of a victory. Hasan Ali and Sameen Gul were the bowlers, who picked up one wicket each for Zalmi. Fletcher who made 34 was first to be dismissed in the 10th over.
Akmal, who is no longer part of Pakistan's global team reached 50 off just 17 balls and eventually scored 77 off just 27 deliveries to help Zalmi register a 13-run victory over the Kings. He played 30 balls and hit 3 fours and 2 six.
Kamran Akmal is the top scorer in the ongoing PSL and has also scored the only century of this season and the fastest fifty in the history of the PSL.
After Kamran, no impressive innings was witnessed from Peshawar Zalmi's side as only Liam Dawson, M Hafeez and captain Darren Sammy could reach double figures by scoring 13, 13 and 23 runs respectively, while no other batsmen could contribute some significant runs in their team's total and lost their wickets cheaply.
