Defentas Sporting Club 73/6 (10 ov)
Bologna Cricket Club 76/2 (8.4 ov)
Bologna Cricket Club won by 8 wickets
That is the end of things! Malik Sarfraz finishes things off with a boundary and by doing so he's also brought up his half century. He finished unbeaten on 50 from 28 deliveries. Babar Ghafar played second fiddle to Malik Sarfraz as the BCC openers knocked off most of the runs. As expected, it was an easy chase for Bologna who in the end won by 8 wickets with 1.2 overs to spare. The Defentas Sporting Club bowlers simply did not show enough intent in a game where their side needed early wickets to have any chance of winning.

The game was setup for BCC by their bowlers who did an excellent job to restrict the DSC batsmen to 73 for 6 and Khayer Abul, in particular was outstanding. He was also named the Man of the Match for his excellent spell of 2-12. Bologna have now picked up 4 points as they've claimed victory in 2 of their 3 games so far and are in an excellent position to qualify for the next stage of the tournament.

That's the end of Sportskeeda's coverage for the 18th Match of ECS Rome T10 between the Defentas Sporting Club and Bologna Cricket Club. This is Sameer Deodhar and Anurag Hegde singing off.
