Karachi Kings clinched the maiden Pakistan Super League (PSL) title on Tuesday by defeating Lahore Qalandars by five wickets. Babar Azam's 63 not out off 49 balls propelled Karachi to 135-5 with eight balls to spare.
After the match, head coach Wasim Akram dedicated this historic win to Late Dean Jones, who passed away earlier this year after suffering a cardiac arrest. The former Australian cricketer was appointed the coach of Karachi ahead of the PSL season in March before the coronavirus pandemic led to the postponement of the knockout stage of the tournament.
The Indian Cricket Council (ICC) shared a video of Akram in which he said, "Karachi Kings, the champions. This (win) is for Dean Jones and for the fans of Karachi Kings."
Star of the match, Babar Azam paid tribute to Dean Jones through a Twitter post where he wrote, "Deano, job done coach!"
