Overseas CC 96/5 (10 ov)
Overseas CC won by 5 wickets
Player of the match: Andy Naudi
Overseas win the game by 5 wickets and of the last delivery

That was an exceptional game of cricket! Incredible finish by Marks of that last delivery as he struck a massive six with 5 required to win the game. A very topsy-turvy final over. That misfielding by S Patel which got the Overseas a boundary proved to be very costly. Even though the Overseas won the game, credit must be given to the Malta bowlers as they made a tremendous comeback by getting the well-set Naudi and Kleinepunte out. 

On the batting front, it was Naudi (27 of 16) and Kleinepunte (28 of 24) were the pick of the batters for the Malta side even though they couldn't get the side through the finish line by themselves. Gericke (17 of 14) down the order also played an impressive knock. It was however Marks who turned out to be the hero for side by hitting the six of the final delivery. 

On the bowling front, J Patel (9-2) and Z Malek (12-0) were the picks of the bowlers as they got their team back into the game by bowling very economically. Subham Patel chipped in with a valuable wicket by giving away just 17 runs. 

That's it for the Malta side in the tournament as they have been eliminated after losing this game to the Overseas. They would be looking to come back strongly in the next edition by fixing their current loopholes. On the other hand, Overseas would have to win both of their games tomorrow in order to qualify for the semi-finals. They'll be looking forward to taking this momentum into their games tomorrow.

9.1 Amandeep Ralhan to Heinrich Gericke, slower full delivery outside off cut away to the fielder at point. Byrne sprints to the striker's end and completes the sharp single
Great running between the wickets by the batters on the 2nd ball even though they struggled to get the boundaries in the following deliveries. Kleinepunte gets OUT as he seemingly crumbles under the pressure by running for an unwanted 2nd run. Another wicket!!!! This game is turning into an absolute thriller. The Overseas now require 13 runs of the final over. 
8.6 Jitesh Kumar Patel to Deon Vosloo, OUT! Vosloo attempts a big heave on the off-cutter on fourth stump line. The ball took a thin edge to the keeper and Jitesh picks up a wicket!
8.5 Jitesh Kumar Patel to Heinrich Gericke, OUT! Back of a length delivery pitching outside off and running away from the batsman. Heinrich cuts it to short thirdman and then refuses the second on a misfield. Charl had come in for the second and failed to get back in time!

7.6 Zoheb Malek to Heinrich Gericke, short ball turning into the right-hander has been hit straight to extra cover. The fielder DROPPED a simple catch and Heinrich gets a life
7.5 Zoheb Malek to Charl Kleinepunte, another short ball on the stumps pulled to deep mid-wicket. There are two men in the deep and OVR will get just a single
7.4 Zoheb Malek to Charl Kleinepunte, misses a hoick to keep the game in balance
7.3 Zoheb Malek to Charl Kleinepunte, makes room for himself and gets down on one knee to slap the flighted full delivery outside off to long-off. The fielder makes an unnecessary dive allowing the second run
