Usman’s 120 off only 43 balls (12 fours and 9 sixes), Rizwan’s 55 off 29 balls (6 fours and 2 sixes) and Tim David’s 25-ball 43 runs (1 four and 4 sixes) massively helped Sultans to set up the giant total of 262/3 in 20 overs.

In chasing, Omair Yousuf (67 off 36 balls; 7 fours and 3 sixes) and Iftikhar Ahmed (53 off 31 balls; 4 fours and 4 sixes) played big roles for Gladiators, while others also provided some support to fight back. Ultimately, Gladiators replied with 253/8 in 20 overs as Sultans won the match by nine runs.
