With only one run required off the last over, Faheem Ashraf finished things off in style. Rocked back and smashed Hafeez out of the park. Islamabad lost quick wickets but it has been a great run chase from them.

Ashraf hits a six to win it, fantastic run chase. After Rahat Ali picked up three wickets in the fifth over it looked like Lahore would cruise to victory. However Delport and Talat steadied the ship for Islamabad, the match winning partnership however was between Asif Ali and Faheem Ashraf who scored 59 in the last 5 overs to get last years champions off to a winning start.
