...
Quetta Gladiators might have begun the Pakistan Super League with a win over Islamabad United, but it was Misbah's men, who had the last laugh as they beat them in the last game and clinched the title.
...
After finishing the group stage in third place, Islamabad United have won the inaugural PSL.
...
18.4 1 run, Misbah seals Islamabad United's maiden PSL title with a single, flicked off his pads.
...
The scrips it set for Misbah to hit the winning runs.
...
18.3 1 run, Haddin takes a single and the scores are level.
...
Misbah-ul-Haq comes to the crease.
...
18.2 OUT! Another twist as Latif is caught by Babar at short fine-leg. Still, his 7-ball 16 has all but sealed victory for his side.
...
18.1 FOUR! Latif starts off with a boundary and United are one hit away.
...
Anwar Ali is back into the attack with United needing just six runs.
...
17.6 no run, fired into the blockhole and Haddin can do nothing but dig it out.
...
17.5 no run.
...
17.4 1 run, another full toss has been hit down the ground for a single.
...
17.3 1 ledbye, Haddin doesn't read the ball but still steals a leg-bye.
...
17.2 2 runs, full toss is smashed to sweeper cover for a couple.
...
17.1 SIX! Any hopes Gladiators had might have just gone with that six from Haddin. The keeper just swings the bat and the ball sails over mid-wicket.
...
Babar comes in to bowl the 18th over.
...
Islamabad United need 16 to win off 18 balls.
...
16.6 FOUR! Latif smashes the last ball of the over for a boundary to keep United in control. Latif crashes the ball with plenty of power through extra cover.
...
16.5 2 runs, Latif picks up another couple with a pull to deep mid-wicket.
...
16.4 FOUR! Latif eases some of the pressure with a boundary straight down the ground, which also brings up the 150. That was a flat-batted pull, if there ever was one.
...
16.3 1 run, This has been a feature of Haddin's innings, a gentle dab down to short-third man.
...
16.2 1 run, Latif straight bats a length ball down the ground for a single.
...
Khalid Latif walks out to bat, with his side still in control of the game.
...
16.1 WICKET! Now, now there is a twist. Russell, who just smoked a six off his first ball is gone, bowled by Cheema, as he misreads the length and inside-edges it back onto his stumps.
...
With a set batsman and an explosive hitter, this is United's to lose, surely? Cheema comes in to bowl.
