While chasing a target of 135, Kings were dealt an early blow as they lost left-hand opener Sharjeel for 13 in the fourth over.

One of the world’s leading batsmen, Babar Azam knocked a spectacular half-century to help his side win their first championship in five years at Karachi National Stadium.

Azam knocked seven boundaries in his 49-ball 63, and Imad Wasim hit the winning boundary to help the Kings overhaul a modest 135-run target in 18.4 overs.

The Final had become one of the most anticipated matches in PSL history, given the rivalry between the two biggest cities that too was played after a long gap of eight months due to Coronavirus pandemic.

The Kings will take home a magnificent trophy plus a $500,000 prize, while Lahore received $200,000.

Cheers to Karachi Kings for the win!
