Pandya then struck again by removing Mohammad Amir for 21 off 15 balls after the latter had smashed two sixes in an over against him. Tanvir remained unbeaten on 68 (43b 6x4 3x6) as Karachi posted 198/2 in 20 overs.

The opening ceremony of the tournament, which took place on February 22, 2019, also experienced technical difficulties and had to be stopped midway through its performance; however, this likely did not affect the reputation of either party involved with it.

Munro has played for New Zealand in T20Is, ODIs and Test matches but despite his good performances, he could not secure a permanent place in the team due to competition from Chris Gayle, Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson among others. In 2015 he joined Mumbai Indians as their replacement player for injured Lasith Malinga but later signed with Kolkata Knight Riders on loan from Mumbai Indians for IPL 2015 after being dropped from their squad following a poor run of form in 2014-15 season of Indian Premier League (IPL).

Colin Munro went on to score 85 runs off 56 balls with 6 sixes, the highest individual score in PSL 2020.

He had dismissed Brad Haddin just before he completed his spell while Sarfaraz Ahmed (11) and Faheem Ashraf (0) fell at the other end as well.* Muhammad Hasnain picked up two wickets while Usama Mir picked up one wicket but conceded 38 runs off three overs.* Mohammad Amir took two crucial wickets towards the end of their innings when they were looking good at 117/1 while Shadab Khan also grabbed one scalp to give Pakistan an advantage heading into their chase.* This became even more important when Dilshan Munaweera departed early in their innings after getting caught behind off Mohammad Abbas' bowling.* Jatinder Singh started off well for his team with a boundary but lost his wicket soon after that as he was trapped lbw by Hasan Ali.* Batting partner Babar Azam soon followed him back into the pavilion although he managed to score some quick runs before being dismissed by Wahab Riaz who got him caught behind off what turned out to be an excellent delivery from him.* Nasir Jamshed came out next but didn't last long either thanks again to Hasan Ali who got him lbw; meanwhile Brad Haddin made some quick runs too before getting runout during an attempt at stealing a single inside the circle!
