That's all we've got for you from this match as I, Sudheer and my partner Prashanth are signing off but do stay tuned to Sportskeeda as the 2nd match of the day is coming up in a short while. Cheers and have fun!
SG Hameln have registered a thumping win in this match against Kieler HTC as Akila Rajapakshe was the chief destructor against a mediocre bowling attack. He scored 49 runs from just 27 balls with 7 fours and 2 sixes in his innings. SG Hameln chase down the target of 76 inside 8 overs and that gives them immense confidence going forward in the tournament. Mudassar Ali chipped in with 12 runs to the total and ably supported Akila Rajapakshe in their partnership as the latter took charge of the run scoring.

Kieler HTC didn't have any answers to Rajapakshe's onslaught as he dispatched each of the bowlers for boundaries with disdain to all parts of the ground. Danish Zahid picked an early wicket for the team but that didn't deter the opposition in their scoring rate. This is their first loss of the tournament though they still stand 2nd in their group in the points table. SG Hameln gets a boost to their net run rate after getting hammered in their previous matches and secure first points of the tournament.

7.1 Shiraz Shah to Akila Rajapakshe, FOUR! THAT IS THAT! Quick and full on stump line, Akila clears this one away to the deep mid-wicket region and ends up one short of a well deserved fifty!
SG Hameln are just 3 runs away from the victory and this will be their 1st win of the tournament once they cross the line.

6.6 Danish Zahid to Rizwan Babar, TOUGH CHANCE! Quick and at the stumps, full in length. Babar clears his front leg and smashes it uppishly back to the bowler, who just cannot hold onto that. It came back to him very hard!

6.4 Danish Zahid to Akila Rajapakshe, FOUR! Short and wide, Akila throws everything at this and he gets this one away off the outside edge, it races away to the fence.
6.3 Danish Zahid to Rizwan Babar, full-length ball angling into the batsman, Babar tries to flick it away to the leg side but fails to make contact and is hit on the pads. They take a leg bye!
6.2 Danish Zahid to Akila Rajapakshe, full again on off-stump, Akila gets this one past the bowler for another single
6.1 Danish Zahid to Rizwan Babar, full-length ball outside the off-stump, Rizwan drives this one to the cover fielder and picks up a single
Danish Zahid to bowl the 7th over of the innings.

Boundary to finish the over which otherwise looked like a good one for Kieler HTC. & from it in the end and SG Hameln need 11 more to win the match.
