Another one-sided contest in the ECS! Some champion teams are ruthless for long periods of time to maintain that winning position in the game throughout. And the man of the moment - Alexander Champion Dijiza has bamboozled the opposition with his risk-free, calculative yet aggressive style of play. Sometimes we take this game too seriously and what Dijiza showcased is that all we have to do is just put bat to ball and make sure to enjoy it because at the end of the day it is just a game of cricket.

As far as SIB go, they really need to reflect on the areas that they erred on look to rectify those mistakes going forward. Vallupara and Manuel gave way too many in their respective quota of overs. Fielding has been sloppy with wicket-keepers making a mess of regulation catches while no batter today raised their hand to get the job done for the team. One of the things that did hurt SIB today was the lack of partnerships which they didn't have in the middle refraining them from accelerating at the right moment. The team has the potential to turn its fortunes in the coming fixtures.

Belgrade were clinical in all three departments with Gajic and ZImonjic taking a couple of wickets each. But it is the bowling done in tandem ensuring no leeway for the batsmen to score that allowed Belgrade to run away with the game. The pressure was maintained from both ends to strangle the batsmen allowing them to miscue if they went for the slog.

That is all from our team! We hope you enjoyed this game as much as we had the pleasure of bringing it to you! We urge everyone to stay indoors as much as possible and get vaccinated at the earliest opportunity for us to stay safe and sanitized and enjoy our game of cricket which without the support of the fans is impossible. This is me, Anavit Naik with my expert co-commentator Pratyush Rohra signing off! Take care and Goodbye!

9.6 Vukasin Zimonjic to Vasu Pulibanti, RUNOUT! Back of a length delivery outside off, flat-batted down to long-off. They were looking for two that was never on. So, that's the way the cookie crumbles for SIB. They were simply outplayed. It's a thrashing from Belgrade. Belgrade beat Split India Brodosplit by 65 runs.
A run-out ends a dismal outing for the SIB
9.5 Vukasin Zimonjic to Vasu Pulibanti, OHH! Full delivery on the fourth stump line, Vasu looks to throw the kitchen sink at it, only swings at fresh air
9.4 Vukasin Zimonjic to Sellamuthu Ramasamy, good length delivery on the off-stump channel, Ramasamy presses this into the covers for a single
9.3 Vukasin Zimonjic to Raja Sadagopan, RUNOUT! Stunning work by Pavlovic! Full delivery is driven firmly to extra cover, where the fielder not only puts in a cracking stump but also gets in the direct throw at the keeper's end. That's going to go in his column, surely! What an effort!
9.2 Vukasin Zimonjic to Raja Sadagopan, back of a length delivery outside off, Raja crunches his cut heave towards deep cover. Oh, that's a catch gone down. Costs two runs.
9.1 Vukasin Zimonjic to Vasu Pulibanti, back of a length delivery angling into Vasu, pulls it towards square leg, not well-timed but its good enough to get him to the other end
Come on SIB, reconfigure your target as Dijiza's 71. To be fair to Belgrade, they have been utterly dominating like an authoritative figure who just dictates their own terms

CRACKS INTO MIDDLE AND LEG!!
8.5 Nemanja Zimonjic to Prabakaran Anbazhagan, OUT! BOWLED! Good length delivery on the stumps, Prabakaran backs away to make some room but the ball stays a tad low and crashes into the stumps. Another one castled!

8.4 Nemanja Zimonjic to Raja Sadagopan, good length delivery on the stumps, Raja flat-bats it down to long-on, just a single 
Can SIB breach Dijiza's score? Even that doesn't look like a possibility the way things are moving forward
8.3 Nemanja Zimonjic to Prabakaran Anbazhagan, back of a length delivery outside off-stump, Prabakaran crunches his cut towards sweeper cover, only for a single 
8.2 Nemanja Zimonjic to Raja Sadagopan, full delivery angling into the leg-stump, Raja squirts a french-cut down to fine leg for a single 
8.1 Nemanja Zimonjic to Raja Sadagopan, back of a length delivery angling into Raja, pulls it with no timing towards deep mid-wicket, just short of the fielder in the deep to collect a brace
