Earlier, Eltizam reached 84 for 2 from their six overs thanks to Arshad’s 40 and Shahbaz’s 34 but Adrees was economical for ASLC conceding only nine runs for his two wickets.

But in the final GPS lost their way and were bowled out for 35 runs in 5.1 overs. Shahid (19) and Sajid (12) got some runs but ASLC bowlers were spot on. Faisal took two while Irshad, Uzair and Mahabran bagged one each.
With not much to defend Shafeer put some fear in the ASLC camp by taking two wickets and Awais took one but Tahir walloped 34 runs to finish the match in only two overs.
