So, that is it from me, Karthik Raj and my co-commentator, Pratyush Rohra. Stay tuned to the Eliminator between Bogliasco and Fresh Tropical which will start in a little over an hour's time. 
Bogliasco finally seal their win off the last ball and qualify for the Eliminator. After a lot of drama, it is an eight-wicket victory for Bogliasco. The opening duo of Madupa Fernando and Sachin Tharuka Thamel brought their very best to this crucial encounter with a blistering 74-run opening partnership off just 34 balls. Albano's bowling wasn't great but their fielding was worse as they dropped a couple of catches. Sachin Tharuka was eventually dismissed by Kamaljit Singh but Madupa continued to bat in a mature fashion. Down injured, Supun Tharanga still came out to bat and struck a six but he could only make eight runs off seven balls before getting out on the fourth ball of the penultimate over. 

Bogliasco required just four runs off the final over and Asim Ali gave away a wide off his very first delivery. A couple of singles meant that the chasing side only required one run off four balls but Upul Nandana played three dot balls. Finally, Upul cut a short delivery to backward point for a quick single to bring up the thrilling victory.
