Multan Sultans won the Pakistan Super League for the first time with a 47-run victory over Peshawar Zalmi.
Multan racked up a commanding 206-4 in the final in Abu Dhabi thanks to Rilee Rossouw’s 20-ball 50 and Sohaib Maqsood’s 65 not out off 35 balls.
Peshawar rarely threatened to pull off the highest chase in PSL history despite Shoaib Malik’s 28-ball 48.
They were without Haider Ali and Umaid Asif after they were suspended for breaching their bio-secure bubble.
The PSL was postponed in March because of rising Covid cases in Pakistan, but resumed on 9 June in Abu Dhabi, where players are still under restrictions.
Haider has also been dropped from Pakistan’s limited-overs squad to tour England in July and been replaced by Maqsood.
