It was two-way battle between Mahi and Shaista Khan, as both the players were neck-to-neck going into the final round.
Mahi had only six pins lead, and although she missed the strike yet managed to collect six more pins, which mattered the most, as Shaista did smashed pins and grabbed full 10 pins, but it was not enough to land the title as she had to settle for second place with 235 pins.
The third place was grabbed by Rozina Ali of Islamabad, who scored 209 pins.
Mahi was awarded cash prize of Rs 5000 and trophy, while Shaista collected Rs 3000 and runner-up trophy and Rozina pocketed Rs 2000 cash.
Sharing his views, PTBF secretary Ijaz Ur Rehman Khan said: “We want to provide equal opportunities to female bowlers, as it is my firm belief that females have immense amount of talent but they only need proper platform to showcase their skills.
We will continue to conduct more and more female events not only in Islamabad but also in other major to groom promising lady bowlers,” Ijaz concluded.
