Knights win by 4 wickets and with 3 balls to spare

Well, the luck clearly wasn't in favor of the Malta side as a wide followed by a dropped catch sealed the deal in favor of the Knights. A very exciting slow-building thriller of a game that yet again proves how big shots aren't the only way to entertain cricket fans and followers in general.
The game was clearly dominated by the bowlers who didn't give much room for the batters to find their going.

The star of the game was easily M Panicker who played a very mature inning (28 of 26) to guide his team to a nail-biting victory. Bose Paul, down the order, also played a valuable knock of 12 of 10 balls. Both the batters stuck to their guns and consistently rotated the strike instead of playing any reckless shots which would have put their team in jeopardy.

On the bowling front, Shubham Patel was the pick of the bowlers with his exceptional spell in which he nabbed 3 vital wickets. Z Malek and R Paul chipped in with a wicket each. 

Both the teams would be looking to fix their obvious loopholes in the batting department with the Knights needing to also focus on the inaccuracy showed by their bowlers during their spells in the 1st innings. A victory however in their favor shouldn't let them get loose with their focus. 

So that was the end of the coverage of the game. Stay tuned to Sporstkeeda for more match commentaries and the latest news from across the globe. This is my colleague, Abhinav Singh, and I, Arpit Shrivastava signing off. Stay safe!
9.3 Amandeep Ralhan to Bose Paul, THAT'S THAT THEN! back of length delivery rising up to the chest of the batsman. Paul deep in his crease swivelled to pull the ball behind square but miscued the shot to short fine leg region for a single to kill the chase and get over the line!
