Northern won the National T20 Cup by defeating Balochistan by 52 runs in the final at Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad on Thursday.

The 46-run partnership started with the opening pair of Umar Amin and Ali Imran in favor of Imad Wasim being sent to bat first.

Later out, Amin scored a half-century and shared a 49-run partnership for the second wicket. The opener returned the pavilion for his innings of 60 runs which was dismissed from 38 balls.

From that moment on, the middle order provided formidable resistance, falling to 109-5 in 14.4 overs. Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz's 58-run stand for the sixth wicket, however, took the contestants to a total of 167-5.

Baluchistan were in the run chase from the start as they were reduced to 14-2 within three overs. However, Avis Zia (28 for 27) and Imran Farhat (32 for 26) managed some life in their favor with a 44-run partnership.

The required run-rate kept climbing and the batting pressure decreased.

Northern bowler topped the entire game between veteran bowler Sohail Tanvir and Shadab Khan and helped to dismiss Baluchistan for 115 runs in 18.2 overs. The left-handed Pacers finished with their figures of 3–27, while the leg-spinners returned with 2–23.
