Power Winterthur triumphed in Switzerland's Pickwick Cup final after beating Olten by six wickets at Fronwald.
Power, who had lost in the final twice previously, elected to field after winning the toss.
That decision proved correct as Olten never recovered from the quick removal of their openers to be dismissed for 59 off 21.4 overs.
Haliq was the stand-out bowler as he became the first player to take a Pickwick Cup hat-trick.
Chasing a small total, Power opener Sajid got the run-chase off to a brisk start with 21 coming from the first three overs.
Although four wickets fell in the pursuit, a final flourish was provided by Shanawaz, who struck a mighty six onto the nearby railway track to complete the win.
Mubarik thus became the first Power captain to lift the trophy while Haliq won the man-of-the-match award for his bowling feats.
