After losing opener Furqan for a run, the team recovered well with Kamran and Daniyal contributing valuable knocks of 23 and 24 runs respectively. With the pressure of a final on the cards, the team required an extraordinary innings from one their batsmen but unfortunately could not capitalize on many of the decent starts provided. Faraz Hasan and Taha Khan were valiant in their effort putting up 33 and 32 runs respectively but Shan Foods bowlers kept things tight. The bowling opposition picked wickets when needed and pulled the game back in their favour with Israr Ahmed and Maqsood Ahmed leading the attack with 2 wickets each. Creative Chaos ended at 160 for 6 in 20 overs.
In response, Shan Foods lost their top order cheaply before Adeel Shamsi and Husnain Raza settled in. For a team that was panicking and the scale of the event, the pair put up a remarkable performance. Adeel knocked 44 runs but Husnain Raza's 73 not out included 8 boundaries and saw his to glory. Chaos bowlers were helpless against the pair, unable to break the partnership when needed. Wasif Ahmed picked up 2 wickets for his side but Shan Foods chased down the target in 17 overs.
Shan Foods won by 6 wickets and won the tournament!
