Sami, miraculously, managed to defend four runs in the final over to thwart Quetta Gladiators, who just could not believe how they managed to lose from such a strong position after Kevin Pietersen and in-form Ahmad Shahzad had put up a mammoth 133-run stand to all but make the win imminent.
Gladiators had eight wickets to spare when Pietersen got dismissed in the 17th over and required just 17 runs off 18 balls to win their fifth match of the tournament.
