Scorecard
105 was never going to be enough to ensure a win against the power-packed batting line-up of Catalunya! In the end a comfortable chase for them in some style as Muhammad Khan was in a serious hurry to get his team past the line. Unbeaten 37 off a mere 12 deliveries as he made a mockery of the Gracia hitting smashing the bowlers all around! Catalunya got the perfect start with Yasir Ali and Mustansar Iqbal giving them a racing start at the top and there was no way the bowlers were going to comeback to defend that total. All-round performance from Yasir with bat and ball as Catalunya continue their impressive run. 

A nightmare for the bowlers as Harkamal and Trilochan were taken to the cleaners being dispatched for boundaries. Missing their lines and lengths, offering extras as well making it all the more easier for the batsmen who were in the mood. Calls for improvement with the ball for Gracia as the game got done in under seven overs which is not a good sign for them. Just that kind of a game where even a few extra runs on the board may not have helped them given the form of the batsmen. Only wickets could have given them a chance which they failed to pick at the top.

In the end a handsome win for Catalunya as they did well with the ball first, except for that final over, but because they had done well throughout the innings, it did not affect them one bit as far as chasing a big total was concerned. Some tight and tidy bowling and then the batsmen coming out and making light work of the target chasing it down comfortably and in style! Certainly a confidence booster as they are set for back to back games today. They will definitely carry this momentum in their remaining fixtures for the day and ahead as the tournament progresses as well!

This has been Rishab and my colleague Lavil as we take your leave for the moment. Stay tuned for more action coming up soon!
Kuldeep having the last laugh there as Yasir giving his wicket away with an ugly shot. Just a consolation wicket though as he'd ensured Catalunya were in touching distance! Muhammad Khan then ideally finishing things off and this has been a splendid victory for them! Quite comfortably chased down in the end for a comprehensive finish
6.5 Kuldep Lal to Muhammad Armghan Khan, FOUR! Full length delivery on the line of the middle stump, Khan gives the ball a hard whack away to midwicket, where the fielder misjudged the ball and parries the ball away over the ropes for a boundary. Catalunya Tigers CC win the match by 8 wickets
6.4 Kuldep Lal to Saqib Latif, length delivery on the off stump, thumped away own the ground for a single 
6.3 Kuldep Lal to Saqib Latif, FOUR! Full length delivery going down the legside, Latif tucks the ball off his pads and gets a boundary behind square
6.3 Kuldep Lal to Saqib Latif, full-length delivery going down the leg side, wide called by the umpire
6.2 Kuldep Lal to Yasir Ali, BOWLED HIM! Slower length delivery, deceived really well by Lal on that occasion, Ali has a ugly hoick at the ball and the ball disturbs his woodwork. He's got the job done though for his side!
6.1 Kuldep Lal to Muhammad Armghan Khan, full-length ball on the off stump, tapped away on the offside for  a single to start the over 
Muhammad Khan definitely in a hurry to get done with this now! Brilliant striking and Gracia have no answers at the moment. Yasir Ali then getting into the act as well and Trilochan is having a spell to simply forget here. Both these batsmen dealing in boundaries, standing and delivering and they are on a roll! Misery piling for Gracia and this is terrific hitting. Raining boundaries as Catalunya in touching distance now.

Muhammad Khan going all guns blazing then and this is getting all the more easy for Catalunya at the moment! Gracia are going to have to find a way to stop this run flow soon as the game already looks like it's going away from them. The required run-rate in control for Catalunya and they are well on top at the half-way mark! 32 more needed off 30
