That's it from us, Maanas and Rajarshi, as we conclude our coverage of day 2 of the ECS Romania. We will be back with more ECS action tomorrow morning. Until then, switch tabs to enjoy our coverage of the IPL game between the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Rajasthan Royals, as Pratyush and Raghav bring you all the action from a high-voltage clash! Goodbye for now!
Game, set and match! Mashal has provided us with some entertainment, making a low-scoring run chase look all the more entertaining! The Bucharest Gladiators barely took half the innings to go past ACCB's total, which pretty much summed up the game for the Asian Cricket Club. Their trump card, Abdul Asif had a horrible game, he was dismissed cheaply early on and went on to concede 32 in his 2 overs, bowling to a rampant opening pair of Muhammad Mashal and Muhammad Moiz. The Gladiators opening duo put up a 50-run partnership in less than 4 overs; Moiz was the lesser destructive of the two, he hit 19 off 8 before he holed out against the run of play. Mashal continued on his merry way, making the most of some wayward bowling from ACCB. Saeed Ullah's howler-ful first over made things all too easy, and the winning runs came soon enough; fittingly, the ball went over the fine-leg boundary off Mashal's bat. ACCB are now on the backfoot in terms of their prowess in this competition; 4th in the table having played 4 games. Bucharest Gladiators are 2nd currently, and they will square off against United Cricket club twice tomorrow. ACCB will be playing Cluj twice, later in the day.
5.2 Arfan Muhammad to Muhammad Mashal, SIX! SMACKED AWAY! Mashal finishes off in style! Pitched short once again and it is the trademark Mashal pick-up shot that is executed to perfection! Short and on the leg stump line, Mashal hangs back, brings his lower hand into play as he swivels-flicks that over the backward square leg region for a huge maximum to complete what has been a straightforward run chase!
5.1 Arfan Muhammad to Sagara Perera, short of a length ball outside off, Perera slaps that towards mid on and the batters scamper across for a single. 
Arfan Muhammad, right-arm medium, comes into the attack
Magnificent Mashal! 50 in no time! Saeed Ullah's aimless line and length mean that just 4 runs remain to be scored in this game.

4.6 Saeed Ullah to Muhammad Mashal, SIX! BOOM! Short of a length ball on the body, far too easy for Mashal, who swivels and sends that packing over the backward square leg region for a huge maximum! Whew! Big over!
4.5 Saeed Ullah to Sagara Perera, short of a length ball outside off, Perera miscues the slap serially in front of the cover fielder for a single. 
4.5 Saeed Ullah to Sagara Perera, FIVE WIDES NOW! Oh dear! 10 runs conceded and not even a legal delivery bowled! Length ball sprayed down the leg side, the keeper has no chance of stopping that as it races away to the fine leg fence!
4.5 Saeed Ullah to Sagara Perera, NO BALL! FOUR BYES! A massive no ball and that pitches well outside the pitch down the leg side. The ball runs away to the fence as well! Free hit coming up! 
4.4 Saeed Ullah to Muhammad Mashal, length ball outside off, Mashal leans in and slashes that towards backward point for a single. 
4.3 Saeed Ullah to Muhammad Mashal, SIX! MASSIVE FROM MASHAL! Short and on the leg stump line, a poor delivery and that deserved punishment! Mashal rocks onto the back foot, swivels and sends that packing over the backward square leg region for a huge maximum!
4.2 Saeed Ullah to Sagara Perera, length ball outside off, Perera cuts that towards backward point and a fumble allows a single. 
4.1 Saeed Ullah to Muhammad Mashal, length ball on the pads, Mashal rocks back and glances that down to long leg for a single. 
Saeed Ullah, right-arm medium, comes into the attack
A wicket against the run of play for ACCB. Other than that, 7 came off the over, but the required rate is well below 6 now.

3.6 Pubudu Nilanga to Sagara Perera, no run, slower full ball on the pads, Perera flicks that but finds the man at short mid-wicket with it. 
3.6 Pubudu Nilanga to Sagara Perera, WIDE! Sliding down the leg side and the umpire indulges in some more exercise. The left-right combination causing troubles for the pacer.
