FATA gave a fitting reply to Lahore Blues’ score as well. They scored at a good run rate right from the start but fell short of the target by 10 runs in the end. FATA scored 211 for 8 in 20 overs with Khushdil Shah and Mukhtar Ahmed top-scored with 56 and 47 respectively.

Lahore Blues also went on to win the National T20 Cup by beating Lahore Whites in the final by 7 wickets.

Shehzad is one of the few cricketers who have centuries in all the three formats and the only Pakistani cricketer to have a T20I century.
