North-West Frontier Province 222 (Jan 83, Rauf 5-72) and 223 (Raees 98, Rauf 5-63) beat Baluchistan 174 (Hussain 61, Rehman 4-41, Junaid 3-49) and 243 (Tariq 63, Yasir 6-87) by 28 runs
The resistance from Baluchistan did not last long on the final day in Lahore. They began the fifth day needing 38 to beat NWFP, but the tenth-wicket pair of Azharullah and Zulfiqar Babar - who had added 17 runs on the fourth day - could manage only nine more.
Umar Gul, the North-West Frontier Province captain, struck a timely blow to seal the title. He bowled Azharullah for 5, his first wicket in Baluchistan's second innings. Babar was left stranded on 21.
NWFP, who began the final as favourites, won all their five games in this season's Pentangular Cup. Baluchistan's Saeed Bin Nasir finished as the leading run-scorer in the tournament, with 419 at an average of 52.37, closely followed by NWFP's Adnan Raees. NWFP medium-pacers Shakeel-ur-Rehman and Junaid Khan were the highest wicket-takers, taking 55 wickets between them.
