Two army helicopters were employed on Wednesday to dry out the rain-hit wet pitch and outfield before the second eliminator to be played between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi at Lahore's Gaddafi Cricket Stadium.

In the match, Kamran Akmal knocked a quickfire half-century to take defending champions Peshawar Zalmi into the Pakistan Super League final with a 13-run victory.

The 36-year-old scored a 27-ball 77 studded with eight well-timed sixes and five boundaries to lift his team to 170-7 in a 16-over-a-side game following a rain delay.

Peshawar Zalmi will now meet former champions Islamabad United in the final in Karachi on Sunday.
