Islamabad United won an absolute last-ball thriller Monday to clinch the Pakistan Super League trophy for the third time in nine years.

The win was quite emotional leaving the fans as well as players spellbound. Here is how Islamabad United players react after the match while describing their emotions for the presenters.

Naseem Shah

I can't even breathe properly but what a great match we had. This is the beauty of cricket, it was the final and went to the last ball. I need some time to gather my thoughts, can't really make of what just transpired. I practice a lot for my batting in the nets. Just talked about keeping belief in ourselves when I was batting with Imad.

Hunain Shah

I had the belief when I was sitting out in the dugout that I would keep calm when I went out to bat, the plan was to just tap the ball and run to the other end. Imad was telling me to remain easy and just put the bat on the ball. I don't have words to describe my feelings. I'm so happy.

Azam Khan

I am over the moon, I'm so happy. I got only one match for Quetta in 2019 and I got so much support from Islamabad, really happy about it. Momentum kept shifting but I knew if I stayed in the middle, momentum would shift to our side, couldn't finish the game which is disappointing for me but we are the champions of PSL so quite happy. I've really enjoyed playing alongside Shadab, our goal was always towards the championship. I don't know which song to sing right now, I'm feeling confused.

Martin Guptill

Great final for the fans who enjoyed it here. It was tough going on early on but once we got the momentum, it became easier. We were just one decent partnership away from taking the game away.

Tymal Mills

How we played last week, 10 days, we have shown character, It's brilliant to do so in the final, you can see how much it means to players, especially to the local players. Hunain had a top tournament, young guy, very inexperienced but hopefully that moment will stay for him for a long time. It's been great to see a young guy finish it off.
