Islamabad United etched their name in Pakistan Super League (PSL) history once again, securing a thrilling victory in the 2024 final against Multan Sultans. This triumph came after Imad Wasim‘s all-round brilliance condemned Multan to their third consecutive PSL final defeat.

Chasing a seemingly daunting target of 160, Islamabad produced a dramatic fightback, eventually crossing the finish line with just two wickets remaining. The final ball of the match held everyone’s breath, but Islamabad emerged victorious, sparking jubilant celebrations.
