Khyber Pakhtunkhwa beats Punjab in the final to win Pakistan Cup 2016. After wining the toss, KPK decided to bat in the day/night final played at Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad, Pakistan. Openers Ahmed Shahzad (62) and Fakhar Zaman (115) put a great opening partnership giving KPK a solid target of 311. Younis Khan, who has been in some trouble during the tournament, came back to play and hit a knock of 49 runs before Shan Masood caught him outon a delivery by Amad Butt. Amad Butt took 3 wicket for Punjab while Ehsan Adil managed to dismiss 2 KPK batsmen.
Punjab’s chase was rather slow. The youngster Shan Masood stood firm while his opening pair Salman Butt got out for a duck followed by Aamer Yamin for just 1 run. It was Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Rizwan who tried to get their team back on track but they had lost too many balls and had only half of wicket in hand. After these two batsmen got out, Punjab never recovered and they were all out for just 160 runs. Yasir Shah and Zohaib Khan took 3 wickets each for KPK. Zia-ul-Haq took 2.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa won by 151 runs.
