It was Cataluyna Kings that were crowned this years CPL Champions after they beat last year’s winners Barcelona Qalanders in a tense final that was watched by hundreds of people.
Kings batted first and put a total of 100 for 7 on the scoreboard from their ten overs. Opener Samar Abbas top scored with 30 runs, whilst three bowlers, Tanveer Iqbal, Banaras Khan and Samar Jaspal took three wickets each for the Qalanders.
In reply, Barcelona could only muster 78 for 7 in their innings. A dreadful start, that saw them reeling at 11 for 4 in the third over was the mean reason for the loss. A fine 45 by Kami Shah put Qalanders back in contention but when he was bowled in the eighth over the Qalander resistance was over. Only seven more runs were added as Cataluyna Kings ran out worthy winners by 22 runs.
Cataluyna Kings 100 for 7 beat Barcelona Qalanders 78 for 7
