Player Of The Match : Imad Wasim

Islamabad players run out of patience and call Shadab to lift the trophy in the center of his interview. They've waited six years, but not any longer. Shadab lifts the trophy and the firecrackers go off again. Presently the players are taking turns with the trophy lifting.

Shadab, Islamabad captain: Felt that the additional time I had, could utilize it better with bat. At number 6-7, I don't have the power game. Have tried to fix my technical issues as a bowler. That's a long interaction, and the improvements will come. Watching the match is tough for me. In the center I don't feel pressure, but watching it from outside is tough. I cause problems for individuals next to me as well, so I don't sit with batters who should stroll in next. Unique mention to the proprietors who have supported me. I was captain for five years and we didn't arrive at final, but they upheld me. Lot of things I feel that make this trophy vital for us.

Rizwan, Multan captain: When a match goes to last ball, you can't see your shortcoming. The manner in which Faisal Akram bowled (in prior games), he can go a long way. At the point when you have the momentum, you want to continue to play matches. I, when all is said and done, use things like strategic timeout to break the momentum. Might have batted better myself. Congrats to Islamabad United.

Shadab Khan gets the Player of the tournament grant for a brilliant allround show. He got 14 wickets, and scored 305 runs

Imad Wasim, POTM: Didn't realize that it would proceed to be the best ever tournament. Just wanted to have an impact in the team's win. It was another experience - taking five wickets in the final. Took lesson that we ought to have been finished it one over before. I'm blissful playing cricket. Trying my utmost to contribute for the team. 4-5 years of cricket left in me.

We're waiting for the presentations.

Tymal Mills: Most games have gone down to the wire. Brilliant game in front of a stuffed house. We wanted to top at the end. Often it doesn't work out. But it accomplished for us. We have showed a lot of character in the last 7-10 days. It means a lot to our players. Some of them have a long affinity with the team. Hunain has had a tough tournament. But the winning moment will stick with him. Great to see a youthful person finishing it off.

Azam Khan: I'm delighted. At the point when I was with Quetta, I only got one match. But the past 3 years, Islamabad has supported me so much and I'm happy to lift the trophy with them. I realize that I was out in the center, I can shift the momentum to our side. On the off chance that I stayed till the end, I'm certain I'd have got the equation to run a ball. Disappointed I couldn't finish the game. I've been playing with Shadab for three years presently, he's a great chief and our objective collectively has forever been to get to a final and win.

Mike Hesson: Went down to the wire. Fantastic game between the two best teams. We got ahead, they fought back as well as the other way around. Full house as well. What more would you want. The game doesn't turn out well for you generally. Such countless legends tonight. Naseem was great with the ball. It was never going to be easy but we thought we were dependably ahead just barely. Was about getting bat on ball. Sometimes nerves can get the better of you. But Hunain can bat.

Hunain Shah: (on winning run) I had the belief, was waiting for the opportunity to do something for the team. I hadn't done much with the bat up to this point, but I was waiting for such a moment. I had the belief to win this. I just wanted to get ball to bat, and pass on the rest to God. Feeling really blissful, not able to honestly control my emotions.

Martin Guptill: When it gets that nearby, was great for the fans to appreciate. Really delighted in it. Was tough going to start off. Were only one partnership away to take it away from them. But they bowled well. Munro was standing there and hitting it. Was a straightforward game arrangement for him.

Naseem Shah: Feeling great. Last ball finishes are continuously entertaining, cherished the manner in which the group supported us. I try to contribute with the bat as well, practice on my batting, particularly six hitting. Imad just told me to keep the belief and take it till the end.

Numerous legends in Islamabad's title-winning effort, but the one who has stood out in these crunch games is Imad Wasim. He was Player of the Match in Eliminator 2 where he made a nerveless fifty after walking into bat in trying circumstances. And today he stood up again, mainly with ball to get a five-for which took the steam out of Multan's innings. Notwithstanding Iftikhar Ahmed's late onslaught, this might have been a one-sided cruise for Islamabad. It wasn't to be as Multan fought hard right till the end. Iftikhar had a great evening with ball as well, as did Khushdil, and Islamabad were made to sweat right until the final ball. Once more but their batting depth came in handy  all match details
