Defending champions Shaheen Shah Afridi-led Lahore Qalandars made it two titles in a row when they overcame Multan Sultans in the final of the 2023 edition of the tournament to win the trophy.

In a pulsating final, the Qalandars scored 200 batting first on the back of a 40-ball 65 off the bat of Abdullah Shafique and a 15-ball 44 from captain Afridi. Afridi would then go on to take four wickets and restrict the Sultans to 199.

Needing 35 to win off the last two overs, Haris Rauf was taken down for 22 runs in the 19th over but Zaman Khan bowled an excellent final over to restrict them to just 11 runs.
