That's it folks! Thank you for joining us in this amazing game. We'll be back tomorrow for 5 more intriguing and entertaining games from groud D. Bye bye and a very goodnight from me, Vasudev, and my friend Bala. Signing off.
So an amazing game comes to an end. Zulfiqar and Asghar the star performers from Kharian. A great team effort in their debut match of this tournament. Gladiators will be looking to come back stronger in the next game whereas Kharians will be hoping to carry their form and win the coming games. Kharians too need to work on some areas, fielding and bowling speacially.
So it took only 47 balls to finish the chase. Great stuff by the openers, specially the captain Zulfiqar.He fell short of his half century by just 10 runs. Powerpacked performance by the skipper, 40 off 14 including some massive hits. Adil Ahmed and Umar assisted the skipper to win the match early. Gladiators started poorly, giving 21 runs in the first over itself. Pathetic fielding, dropped 4 catches, gave awar over thorw runs and plenty of extras as well.Lot to learn for the Gladiators from this match.Ali Raza gave away 27 runs but managed to get 2 important wickets.But the pressure never really got in Kharian's head, they seemed to enjoy their chase.Gladiators were not great in the first innings as well, could not capitalize much from their start. 
7.5 Babar Basharat to MD Umar Waqas, FOUR! Fuller outside the off-stump, gets enough on it to clear the fielder at mid-off and the ball goes couple of bounces into the fence
7.4 Babar Basharat to Adil Iqbal, fuller this time and the batsman fails to get under it, crunches it away to wide long-on
Can this chase end in the 8th over? Just 12 required and batsmen seem confident to finish this off in this over itself.
7.3 Babar Basharat to Adil Iqbal, SIX! Slower ball right in the slot, gets under it and heaves it over the long-on fence for a maximum
7.2 Babar Basharat to MD Umar Waqas, length ball angling into the stumps, tucks it away on the on-side for a single
7.1 Babar Basharat to MD Umar Waqas, good length ball outside the off-stump, tries to flat bat it through the off-side but gets beaten
Over: 7 | Summary: 1 1 1lb 6 1 W Bowler: Ihsan Ullah Asda Score: 86/3
6.6 Ihsan Ullah-Asda to Jahanzaib Asghar, OUT! Good length ball outside the off-stump, tries to drag it right across the line and gets a thick inside edge which ricochets into the stumps
6.5 Ihsan Ullah-Asda to MD Umar Waqas, fuller ball outside the off-stump, pushes it through the covers for a single
6.4 Ihsan Ullah-Asda to MD Umar Waqas, SIX! In the slot angling into the pads, swings it through the line depositing it over the mid-wicket fence
6.3 Ihsan Ullah-Asda to Jahanzaib Asghar, fuller ball angling into the pads, gets no connection as he swings hard 
6.2 Ihsan Ullah-Asda to MD Umar Waqas, fuller ball marginally outside the off-stump, hits it hard down to long-on for a single
Pretty good over for Gladiators but another disappointing drop in the end. Dot balls do create pressure in this format of the game but the position Kharians are in,only wickets can put pressure on them. Ullah-Asda the bowler for the 7th over.
6.1 Ihsan Ullah-Asda to Jahanzaib Asghar, full outside the off-stump, miscues it straight to long-off, he settles under it but fails to hold on
Over: 6 | Summary: 2 1 0 1 0 0 Bowler: Babar Basharat Score: 76/2
5.6 Babar Basharat to MD Umar Waqas, slow loopy full toss outside the off-stump, completely deceives the batsman who hits it straight back at the bowler. Basharat spills a straightforward catch
5.5 Babar Basharat to MD Umar Waqas, low full toss outside the off-stump, he is through the slog way to early and gets no connection
