Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited were the Pentangular Cup champions for the first time after coasting to a seven-wicket win on the final day at the National Stadium. Misbah-ul-Haq played a captain's knock of 89 to ensure that they knocked off the remaining 105 runs without any worries.

SNGPL were the favourites at the end of the fourth day, finishing on 117 for 2, chasing 222. Opener Naeemuddin fell shortly after reaching his fifty, caught off Taufeeq Umar. That was HBL's only success as Misbah and Usman Arshad added 74 to see them through. Misbah smashed 12 fours and four sixes in his 129-ball knock as SNGPL needed just 30 overs in the day to finish the game.
