Sialkot Stallions, on the other hand, made their way into the final following a thrashing 65-run win over Karachi Dolphins in the first semifinal earlier on Sunday.
The Sialkot-based team, who had topped Group A, rode on Nauman Anwar’s 43-ball 80 to manage a competitive total of 167 before bundling out Dolphins for 102, thanks to three-wicket hauls from Usama Mir and Bilal Asif.
Lahore Lions, who had finished the league phase as toppers of Group B, booked place into the summit clash following a thrilling four-wicket win over Rawalpindi Rams in the second semifinal on Sunday.
Having restricted Rams to 100-8 thanks to a disciplined bowling show, Stallions rode on opener Ahmed Shehzad’s unbeaten 57-run 58 to chase down the target with five balls to spare.
