Peshawar Zalmi beat Quetta Gladiators by 58 runs at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore to win the Pakistan Super League title on Sunday. The Gladiators won the toss and opted to field first. Kamran Akmal top-scored with 40 for Peshawar as they reached 148 in 20 overs. All their batsmen had solid starts, but they failed to convert them into a big score.
