Kokan XI won the toss and elected to field first. In the first over of innings Wasim Golandaz bowled Kafi group batsman Shakeel Asghar. Then it was the captain of Kafi team Malik and Gulzar who got together and tried to put some runs on the board. Kokan XI fielders on the other hand were excellent on the ground and took all their chances as their bowlers bowled in the right areas not allowing Kafi batsmen play big shots.  From Kafi team, Mohsin and Gulzar shined as they set Kokan XI a target of 151 for victory.

Kokan XI started well with a  good opening partnership between Usman and Kashif.  As Kashif fell, Kokan XI skipper Aslam Chougle put himself in at number three and got involved in a little partnership with Usman.  Kafi bowler Shoaib struck and got Aslam out. Wickets started to fall and it looked like Kafi bowlers had come back in the match with the score at one stage reading 75 / 5 after 10 overs. Kokan XI required another 75 runs in the next 10 overs with 5 wickets in hand. Rahsid Chowdhry and Tausif Pathan who were at the crease then played sensibly ticking the scoreboard along, taking their team closer to victory. Rustam, the Kafi team bowler bowled a maiden over and in the very next over the set Tausif got out. In the last over Kokan XI required 10 runs with new man Muzaffar on the crease who made things easy with a first ball four.  It came down to 6 runs from 4 balls. Rashid Chowdhary finished the match in style with a 6 off the penultimate ball of the match thereby helping his team Kokan - XI emerge champions.

Rashid Chowdhry scored 45 Runs while Tausif Pathan and Usman scored 40 and 35 runs respectively. For Kafi Shoaib took 3 wickets.

Usman and Ishtiaq did a fair job as umpires.
