The final was a rollercoaster of emotions, reminiscent of the previous year’s epic clash that saw Sultans narrowly miss out on the title. Despite United’s strong position throughout the game, the Sultans fought back valiantly, with Iftikhar Ahmed’s impactful innings propelling them to a competitive total of 159 runs. United’s experienced campaigners, Martin Guptill and Azam Khan, navigated the challenging chase, with Guptill’s explosive half-century setting the stage for a dramatic finish.
