Watch: Hunain Shah hits last-ball boundary to win PSL 2024 final for Islamabad United

The match produced a pulsating end with 8 runs needed in the last for Islamabad United to win their third PSL trophy.

What’s a final without some thrill? The Pakistan Super League 2024 final on Monday finished on the exact same note as Islamabad United prevailed in a topsy turvy ride. Hunain Shah proved to be the hero of the match as he hit a last ball boundary to provide the Islamabad United with their third PSL trophy.

Multan Sultans won the toss and elected to bat first. Mohammad Rizwan’s team rode on Usman Khan’s half-century and Iftikhar Ahmed’s 32 runs to post a decent total of 159 on the board.

In reply, Islamabad United started gingerly, losing two wickets in powerplay. Nevertheless, Martin Guptill’s half-century off 30 balls at the top of the order steadied the innings, and when they reached 102-3 in the 13th over, they appeared to be well on their way to reaching the target. Then catastrophe struck, with Guptill out due to Iftikhar Ahmed’s deft throw into Muhammad Rizwan.

Four wickets fell for 27 runs after the wicket, sending Islamabad into a nearly catastrophic collapse. With three overs remaining and 21 runs still needed to win, Islamabad was reduced to 129-7 after Azam Khan, Haider Ali, and Faheem Ashraf were all removed in quick succession.
