76/7 (10)
ALZ won by 15 runs.
Player of the match: Azam Khalil
 
Alby Zalmi - 91/7 in 10 overs (Zia Alozai 26 off 16 balls, Gopinathan Manavalan 2/16 in 2 overs) beat Umea - 76/7 in 10 overs (Sohail Adnan 38 off 16 balls, Azam Khalil 3/2 in 2 overs) by 15 runs and qualify for the semi-finals.

Sohail Adnan batted so well that Alby Zalmi were in sixes and sevens after four overs and were staring down the barrel. But then came two overs of Azam Khalil and Qudratullah Mir Afzal that changed the course of the match. Qudratullah got Sohail out and then started a procession of wickets and a drying up of runs. 

There was a bit of a flurry in the ninth over from Pardeep Singh that brought interest back into the contest but finally it was too little too late as Alby Zalmi held on to their nerves and produced a champion-like performance to book a semi-final spot tomorrow. 

Undoubtedly, Azam Khalil's two overs proved to be the difference. Every other team up against Alby Zalmi will be aware of that and the experience they have to contend with is something that makes this team very hard to beat - the experience of handling pressure that is.

Umea did give a good account of themselves and they will look to improve themselves going forward. 

That is all that we have for this T10 match from the Norsborg Cricket Ground in Stockholm. This is the pair of Pradeep and Bidipto, saying good bye! Keep following Sportskeeda for the finals day of ECS Sweden, 2022, Stockholm!

Lemar Momand has to work on his extras here, he gives too many of them, giving the batters more balls to get going. Umea are mathematically still in this but they need some big strikes right from the start of the last over to win this. 19 runs required now off 6 balls.
