BUG won by 4 wickets
 
Well, what am entertaining  game of cricket this has been! Gladiators lost early wickets and were in trouble upfront. It seemed like things from the previous game would repeat for them and United were in control of the game. However, what a come back it was from them to get over the line pretty comfortably in the end. They needed one partnership and it was the duo of Manmeet and Waqas that gave them that. Manmeet was brilliant for his match-winning 43 under pressure.

United will be disappointed with this finish after picking up those early wickets and putting pressure on the batters. They had the game under control but could not finish the job as they allowed Gladiators to come back and eventually ended up losing the contest.

It is only fair that both the teams walk away with a win each here, as they have both played some good and entertaining cricket. Gladiators coming back to level scores after their opening defeat and United missing out on an opportunity to make it a double.

Right then, this has been Pradeep and myself (Rishab) signing out for the moment. More ECS action coming your way so do stay tuned to catch it al live!
Done and dusted! Gladiators have back from behind to win this game eventually and this has been a fantastic chase from them under pressure. They will settle scores then and pick up some much-needed points as well. Disappointing from United with the ball!
9.1 Surjit Gill to Ali Jawad, MISSES A DIRECT-HIT AND GLADIATORS SEAL THE GAME! Full delivery on the outside off, Jawad on the backfoot squeezes it into the off-side, takes off, cover fielder picks it up and has a shy at the stumps and misses, they pick up the crucial single and Gladiators win this contest.
Cosmin Zavoiu, RHB, comes to the crease
What a dramatic finish to this game we are having. Manmeet Koli has taken his side to victory, almost, as they just need one run off the final over now. What a come back this has been in the run-chase. Much-needed for the Gladiators this!

8.6 Shant Vashisht to Manmeet Koli, OUT! CHIPS IT STRAIGHT TO MID-WICKET AND GONE! Full toss on the pads, Koli looking to flick that one over mid-wicket but chips it straight to the fielder and has to go for a well made 43!
8.5 Shant Vashisht to Manmeet Koli, back of a length on the middle and leg, Koli on the backfoot tucks it behind square on the on-side and picks up a brace. SCORES ARE LEVEL NOW! 
8.4 Shant Vashisht to Ali Jawad, full delivery on the outside off, Jawad drilled it to extra-cover region and they take a sharp single.
8.3 Shant Vashisht to Ali Jawad, FOUR BYES! Low full toss on the off-stump, Jawad swings at it and misses, hits the bottom of the stumps, shocking that the bails doesn't come off, ricochets off to third-man fence for a boundary!
8.2 Shant Vashisht to Manmeet Koli, short into the rib cage of Koli, on the backfoot looks to pull but doesn't time all that well, picks up a single.
8.1 Shant Vashisht to Manmeet Koli, excellent yorker, right up in the blockhole, Koli on the backfoot digs it out.
Shant Vashisht comes back into the attack
This has been a fantastic innings from Manmeet under pressure already to bring his side back in the game and on the brink of going over the line as well now. He has been sensational with his counter attack and the pressure is back on United now. This game has turned indeed. 9 more off 12 needed!

7.6 Ramesh Satheesan to Ali Jawad, full toss and down the leg-side, Jawad swept it down to fine-leg, doesn't time that well as they come back for a brace.
7.5 Ramesh Satheesan to Manmeet Koli, length delivery on the outside off, Koli leans into it and pushes it down to long-off for one more.
7.4 Ramesh Satheesan to Ali Jawad, touch fuller on the outside off, Jawad reaches for it and pushes it to extra-cover region for another single.
7.3 Ramesh Satheesan to Manmeet Koli, length delivery on the middle and leg, Koli on the front foot clips it into the on-side for a quick single.
This game just seems to be slipping away from United now and Manmeet is on fire here. Brilliant batting this!
