That brings an end to our coverage of this exciting ECS contest. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for live commentaries as well as the latest news. This is me, Avik Bose and my colleague, Sameer Deodhar, signing off.
ALV won the toss and sent RCCL to bat first. Starting on a cautious note, RCCL openers failed to give them a quick start and fell prey to the efficient bowling of the opposition. RCCL never looked to have the upper hand in the contest and were lacking intent. Jasbinder Singh looked in solid touch making use of the pace of the ball and scoring at ease. Unfortunately, got himself run-out on 25 from 16 balls. For RCCL, Manjeet Singh chipped with an unbeaten cameo of 17 from 13 balls at the depth. ALV bowlers never let the batsmen go off the hook. Rana Sarwar and Parveen Singh were commandingly economical and struck 1 blow each restricting RCCL to a total of 72/4 at the end of the 10 overs.

Chasing a small total, ALV looked shaky at the start. Losing two early wickets it was left to skipper Imran and Arslan to hold firm and steady the innings. Imran blazed to a quick 22 from 15 balls while Arslan held the other end with 18 from 19 balls. ALV looked from home and host until Parwinder struck 3 late blows and made the contest wide open at the depth. Amandeep Singh was also economical, finishing with the figures of 14/2 from his 2 overs. RCCL bowled exceptionally well to make something out of this small target. With 6 runs needed from the last 6 balls, Parveen Singh started the over hitting a boundary and ALV reached home with 3 balls to spare.

ALV thus win by 3 wickets and record their 2nd victory of the tournament. RCCL on the other hand are yet to open their account in this tournament.
