United Bank Limited 262 (Baig 79) beat Khan Research Laboratories 96 (Mughal 2-26, Misbah Khan 4-18) by 166 runs
When United Bank Limited and Khan Research Laboratories met in the group phase the match was abandoned. When they met in the final, it was again a no-contest, this time because UBL skittled KRL for 96 in their chase and ended up winners by a huge margin. Fast bowler Tahir Mughal did the early damage, dismissing KRL's openers, and the wickets kept falling. Left-arm spinner Kashif Bhatti took two wickets before offspinner Misbah Khan ran through the lower order and finished with 4 for 18.
UBL had been put in and built a strong total thanks to Adnan Baig's 79. Baig came in after the fall of the first wicket in the tenth over and stayed till the 42nd, while Saeed Mutabar and Mohammad Sami junior made contributions. Bhatti made 28 quick runs at the end but that was superfluous as KRL got nowhere close to the total of 262.
