The Outstanding Performance award goes to Rilee Rossouw

Hasan Khan has been named as the man of the match for his brilliant all-round performance.

"I play from Karachi Zone VI. Yes I was a bit scared at this big stage, but my team always backed me and the confidence they gave me allowed me to play my game," said Hasan.

Quetta captain Sarfraz Ahmed said: "The team played brilliantly. It was a combined team effort with the ball, the bat and in the field. We lost concentration a little bit but I'm glad we made up for it. Hasan played brilliantly. I've said it before and I'll say it again; he is one of the most exciting prospects for Pakistan cricket."
