That's all we've got for you from this match as my partner, Ankit, and I, Sudheer, are signing off at the moment but do stay tuned to Sportskeeda for more updates and matches coming your way from around the globe. Cheers and have fun!
Amdocs batting will be synonymous with Hitesh Thadani's knock of 43 runs 17 balls that had 4 biggies and 3 fours in it. Preetaj Deol ably supported Hitesh Thadani and chipped in with crucial 25 runs in 17 balls and found boundaries when it was needed from his end. The top 4 got out pretty cheaply and it looked like they are heading to another loss before Hitesh Thadani had different plans to the chase and came out with a single task of taking on the bowlers right from the first ball and believed he can make it happen for his team. Perhaps, his performance with the ball must have riled him up and it was evident he was hungry and aggressive in his shot making to prove a point. Pankaj Parvesh came in once Hitesh was dismissed and he strruck the all important maximum of his first ball to level the scores and then took the next ball to help his team cross the line.

Sri Lankan Lions will be highly disappointed with the effort in this match. They had their moments both with bat and ball today and later threw them away due to the complacency that crept in their approach. Defending 120, they should have closed the match out with some tight bowling as they did in the last match but some poor bowling effort has caused them lose the match in the end. They were expected to restrict the opposition under 89 that can help them stay in top two for the qualification. First they failed to do that and then to lose the match from the situation they were in is completely out of their expected terms. 

This win becomes the first of the tournament for Amdocs while Sri Lankan Lions fail to qualify for the next stage of the tournament as they cannot finish in the top two. For the moment, Hitesh Thadani will be the man of the match and he must have had one of the best nights on the field by gifting a victory to his team in this tournament.
Amdocs have pulled off a miracle which they wouldn't even thought of in their dreams. The last 4 overs have produced 80 runs and Hitesh Thadani was the man to do it for them. He went from a zero to here in a span of one hour and just did the impossible for his team. To pull of the first victory of the tournament, Amdocs will be over the moon today and all their losses so far will be forgotten with this win.

9.4 Mahesh Gamage to Pankaj Parvesh , a single through the covers and AMDOCS WIN! Ohh catch a breath fellas for we have witnessed the biggest run chase of this leg and what a game we've had. This ball is full on the fourth stump line, as Parvesh gives it a small push between the covers and picks one run. Amdocs have managed to chase down the biggest total of the Cyprus leg and they register their first win with it! 
What are we witnessing here! This is a heist from Amdocs! They have completely turned the match on its head in the last couple of overs. Now they need just 1 run.
9.4 Mahesh Gamage to Pankaj Parvesh , SIX!!! HELLO! AMDOCS ARE DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE! Juicy full toss, just outside off stump, slapped hard and straight over the bowler, and over the ropes! But that's not enough. It is also a NO BALL! 
9.3 Mahesh Gamage to Hitesh Thadani , OUT! BOWLED! A TWIST HERE! Gamage keeps it quick and straight on the stumps. Pitches it up right in the block hole. Thadani shuffles across the crease, trying to play his shot over fine leg, but is beaten, and has his stumps rattled. 
9.2 Mahesh Gamage to Hitesh Thadani , FOUR RUNS!!!!! Good length delivery, angling away from the right hander. Thadani swings his bat, looking to go near mid wicket. Gets a thick top edge that flies over short third man for a boundary. 
9.1 Mahesh Gamage to Hitesh Thadani , DROPPED! From around the wicket. Low full toss chipped towards deep square leg. Fielder comes under it nicely, but does not hold onto the ball. Drops the catch and gives two. 
Last couple of overs have really turned it on for the Amdocs and we are here with Amdocs needing just 14 from the last over. It's very much possible! Can the Amdocs chase down this total?

8.6 Chamal Sadun to Preetaj Deol , full on the pads now, flicked away towards deep mid wicket region for two really quick runs. 
8.5 Chamal Sadun to Preetaj Deol , FOUR! Full and straight, on the fourth stump line. Deol thrashes it hard, straight over the bowler. The fielder from long off comes in to stop it, but makes a mockery of it, as the ball slips through his hands. 
8.4 Chamal Sadun to Hitesh Thadani , full in the yorker area. Thadani gets an inside edge, that skisd under the keeper and the batter gets one. 
8.3 Chamal Sadun to Hitesh Thadani , FOUR! Too full and too much width on this outside off. Thadani waits for the slower one, and gives it just enough air, as he pumps it over backward point for a boundary. 
8.2 Chamal Sadun to Preetaj Deol , yorker executed really well now. Deol digs it out to the off side and scatters for one. 
8.1 Chamal Sadun to Preetaj Deol , FOUR! Too full and right in the slot for the right hander. Deol carves out a brilliant cover drive, and finds the gap past wide long off. The fielder can sprint but cannot stop the ball. 
What a knock Hitesh Thadani is playing here! He is making them come back into the game and suddenly there is a hope for the Amdocs to chase down this total as they need 30 from 2 overs.
