That was it from today folks! Hope you enjoyed the matches and live coverage from Sportskeeda. Thank you for joining us! Comeback tomorrow for more thrilling and interesting games. That was me, Vasudev and my partner Abhinav Singh. Goodbye and a very goodnight!
A comprehensive win for the ECB Blues as they have climbed to the top of the points table with 2 wins from their first 2 matches. Mohammad Boota and CP Rizwan's partnership has also given them a faith in their top order and a sense of security to the youngsters coming down the order. Their unbeaten partnership of 88 runs was the biggest takeaway from this game. Not to forget the spells of Akif Raja and CP Rizwan. 
Ajman Alubond were below par from the start of this game. They did not get well off in the first innings with the bat and it was downhill for them from there on. The bowling department did not fare well. First three overs leaked 34 runs. Only Danish Qureshi bowled with an economy of less than 10 while every other bowler went for more than 11 runs an over. 3 extras were bowled in the first 2 overs but none after that. A positive to take forward from the game. The bowlers did not vary their pace much like ECB Blues did. Spinners kept dishing half volleys and a couple full tosses. But you can't blame the bowlers much when there isn't enough to defend.
Yes that was the last over of this match!! ECB Blues have chased down the target of 87 runs in just 7.4 overs. Sheer dominance throughout the game by ECB Blues. It was a brave decisiong by Ajman to bat first but they did not give justice to their decision. Having put up just 86 runs on the board, they were well short of 20-25 runs. But even if they had scored 110-115 runs, it would have been quite difficult to defend that with Boota being in such excellent form. Mohammad Boota played a blazing 71 runs inning off just 31 balls. He hit 3 sixes and 10 boundaries with a bounce before touching the ropes. CP Rizwan dropped anchor and played second fiddle to Mohammad Boota. The pitch was not that easy to play on, 2 games were already played here and the pitch had slowed down, but it did not bother Mohammad Boota a single bit. Incredible hitting.

Boota has been magnificient since the start of this chase. Bang on performance by both the batsmen. Ajman had no answer to this assault. Boota keeps the strike by a single at the end of this over. A poor over from Sheraz Ahmad, 13 from it. Luck favoured Boota too in this over. Will this be the last over of the game?
