That's it from me, Rajarshi, as I and Pradeep conclude our coverage of what has been a phenomenal match. The two teams are about to face off for the second time today. Pradeep will be joined by Rishab, and the two of them are going to bring you all the action, so do switch tabs to enjoy the action. Good day!
What a match! What an epic comeback from United CC! They have toppled the Bucharest Gladiators in some fashion in the points table for the time being, and look at those celebrations! United by name, United in crisis situations, United in celebrations! No one would have given a chance throughout the first innings and the first over of the chase to pull through, but they sure did, with some excellent swing bowling, and then some tremendous fielding efforts! The catches that were taken on the boundary were fitting of a best catches montage, they were that good! 
Muhammad Moiz led the charge for the Gladiators with the bat as well, helping take 14 off the first over to set the tone for the chase, a meagre one of 82. But, the fall of in-form Muhammad Mashal, followed by Manmeet Koli gave UCC a sniff back in the game. Moiz continued to go after the bowling, but all hell broke loose after he got out to what might end up being the best catch in this competition, a spectacular take by Rajesh Kumar at long-on. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals, some to the credit of the fielding team, and the others were down to the Gladiators batsmen being at panic stations. In the end, United's perseverance saw them succeed in achieving the improbable; defending a total of 81 against an in-form Bucharest Gladiators batting line-up.
9.2 Aftab Kayani to Pavel Florin, RUN-OUT! Florin swats it straight back to the bowler, Ali long way backing up had to hare back but the keeper passes the ball to the bowler who runs back to disturb the furniture as Gladiators are bundled out in the end and United win the game by 11 runs!

Zawwar Ali run out (Aftab Kayani) 2 (4b 0x4 0x6)
9.2 Aftab Kayani to Pavel Florin, WIDE! Short delivery on the outside off, goes outside the tramline and it's called a wide.
9.1 Aftab Kayani to Zawwar Ali, short into the rig cage on the leg-stump, Ali on the backfoot awkwardly turns it into the on-side for a quick single.
9.1 Aftab Kayani to Zawwar Ali, WIDE! Back of a length delivery but gets the line wrong, called a wide.
Aftab Kayani, right-arm medium, comes into the attack
The self-destruction button was pressed repeatedly by the Gladiators in the space of the last two overs. Run outs, failed slogs, they are down to their last pair who need to get 15 off the last over of the game. Difficult, but are we going to see something special?

Look who's here! It's the man who set the ECS viral with his entertaining cricket. Pavel Florin has a job to do with the bat now though, can he get them home?
