Bergamo United Cricket Club won by 9 runs.
That brings an end to our coverage of this exciting ECS contest. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for live commentaries as well as the latest news. This is me, Avik Bose and my colleague, Gaurav Kadam, signing off.
Winning the toss and electing to BAT first, it did not go entirely according to the plan. With 20/1 after 4 overs, BUCC looked to struggle in the middle and found it difficult to break free. The wickets crumbled down at regular intervals and the batsmen lacked intent. Rizwan Tahir and Javaid contributed 21 runs and 12 runs respectively, while Mubashir Amin top-scored with 23 runs from 14 balls. From the bowling department, Khayer Abul took 4 wickets while Haseeb Khan, Adnan, and Kolli took 1 wicket each. BUCC toiled hard and finished on 75/8 from their 10 overs which was no way close to being a decent score.
Chasing a low target, BCC got off to a dreadful start with 17/3 after the first 3 powerplay overs. They fell prey to the chasing pressure and lost wickets at tandem. Sarfraz scored 10 from 4 balls while Iftikhar added 13 runs to the scorecard. Muhammad Adnan gave hope but eventually got dismissed scoring 21 runs from 13 balls. From the bowling department, Ravi Paul, Faisal Muhammad, and Ahsan Akram took 2 wickets each. Each of the bowlers, bowled exceptionally well to prevent the chasing team to gather any momentum. BCC fell short and finished on 66/8 from their 10 overs.

BUCC thus win this low-scoring thriller by 9 runs and register their 1st win of the tournament.

9.3 Faraz Ali to Faizan Hussain, pitched up as Hussain runs it down to the mid on region for a single
9.2 Faraz Ali to Muhammad Adnan, CAUGHT! pitched up and Adnan goes for the big heave on the leg side and skies it high in the air! The square leg fielder takes the catch and the dangerous Adnan has to depart. Adnan goes after scoring 21 runs from 13 balls and that is possibly the final nail in the coffin!
9.1 Faraz Ali to Muhammad Adnan, FOUR! What a way to start the over! Full and outside off as Adnan drives it through the covers finding the gap as the ball races to the rope. Half volley and goes for the taking! Bisected the fielders perfectly.

8.2 Ahsan Akram to Zain Iftikhar, FOUR! back of the length from Akram and Zain has clobbered that over the bowler's head and the ball beats the two fielders converging on it and goes past the rope for a boundary! Pierced the gap with perfection!

However, it looks like the batsman has hurt himself immediately after playing the shot and the medics are attending to him!
