Ronchi powers Islamabad United to Pakistan Super League trophy

Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi, Pakistan Super League final, latest update: Wahab's brought back in the 17th over, which is a mere formality, and the pacer gets to do the moustache-stroking celebration one last time in the tournament by castling Talat with a full-toss off the first delivery.

The one and only Pakistan's heartthrob actor, Fawad Khan is the official ambassador for Islamabad United.

Amid security concerns, extra security measures coupled with special traffic plans have been taken in and outside the Stadium to avoid any untoward incident as apart from foreigner players, high profile personalities including Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Federal Ministers and leadership of mainstream political parties would also be present in the Final.

Ronchi also finished as top run-getter with 435 runs in 11 matches. Lahore first hosted the PSL final a year ago, and there were Twenty20 global matches organized against a World XI (three matches) and Sri Lanka (one).

Giles Clarke, director of International Cricket Council (ICC), praised Pakistan's efforts.

The incident resulted in a halting of worldwide cricket in the country, forcing the Pakistan Cricket Board to play overseas with the United Arab Emirates as its "home" for hosting global teams. "Let this final be successful and we look forward to more matches".

Fans weathered suffocating security arrangements, with 8,000 policemen and paramilitary staff guarding the venue and the various check posts in and around the stadium. "In fact, this is hurting Pakistan as it is sending a negative signal and affects our country's image as well".

"I am so happy that so many people have come and the security is good too", said Rida.

Oh hey, already seein' a lot of love coming Karachi's way allll the way from Lahore. More than 8,000 security personnel have been deployed for the Twenty20 final between Islamabad United and last year's champions Peshawar Zalmi. "It's a historic occasion as Karachi is hosting a match after a nine year gap", said Sethi before the final.
