Jonkoping CA 99/6 (10 ov)
Almhult CC 75/8 (10 ov)
Jonkoping CA won by 24 runs.
Jonkoping CA beats Almhult CC by 25 runs!

Jonkoping has put up a professional performance with the ball to knock Almhult CC out the competition. Right from the first ball, Jonkoping bowlers, Sahargul Shirzad and Zabiullah Zadran put pressure on the batsmen and sucked the life out of the chase. However, there was some resistance from Junaid Khan and Samiulhaq Gajar, who put on 24 runs for the fourth wicket, albeit to no avail. With this win, Jonkoping joins Watan Zalmi CC and Seaside CC in the semi-finals with a game to spare although they will be eyeing the top spot!

That's it for this game! Hope you enjoyed what was an entertaining game of T10 cricket between Jonkoping CA and Almhult. Do tune in to the next ECS T10 Gothenburg game in about 30 mins from now. Until then, this is Dwijesh Reddy and my colleague, Habil Ahmed, signing off. Take Care!
