Scorecard
Sharjah Bukhatir are Champions of the inaugural Emirates D20 league. The celebration begins and you could see the hugs and smiles all around. They have defeated the dominant Fujairah Pacific Ventures in the mega-final, courtesy of some sensational bowling and a composed innings from Kashif Daud. 

Rohan Mustafa bowled brilliantly in the powerplay and at one stage, Sharjah were in deep trouble losing three quick wickets. But Kashif Daud took on the attack and build a nice little partnership with Boota and Umair Ali. Fujairah had two run-out chances to dismiss Kashif but they messed up and eventually paid the price. 

After being undefeated in the league phase, Fujairah had themselves to blame as they struggled with the bat and couldn't get the momentum going. They made the contest interesting with some early blows with the ball but Kashif Daud kept his cool and took his side home in the big final.
