Catalunya Tigers CC 66/10 (9.3 ov)
Catalunya won by 65 runs.
A comprehensive victory for Catalunya as they win this match by 65 runs and qualify for the finals!

The Catalunya derby for the sem-finals was surely built up as both the teams have provided action-packed, highly thrilling, and entertaining contests in the past. Unfortunately, this time around this just turned out to be a one-sided contest as Catalunya have pulled off a number on the Tigers big time.

At the start of the chase, the Tigers were awarded 5 bonus runs as Catalunya were penalized for a slow over-rate while batting first. The reason being skipper Yasir Ali wasted too much time in changing his bats consistently. This at the start looked like would turn out to a deciding factor but the carnage was yet to begin. 

The Tigers never really got going as the Catalunya bowlers bowled outside off and challenged them consistently. Yasir Ali after having brilliant innings with the bat sets the tone by getting the run out Mohsin Ali for a six-ball duck. The Chaos continued for the Tigers and it was probably the worst of time to have your batting collapse.

Nobody really got going for them as only one batsman could reach the double-figure and that was Ghulam Dastgeer who primarily is a bowler. He managed to score 20 runs off 10 balls he faced and had hit a couple of sixes. Tigers in this match have also registered their lowest total for the season as they were cleaned up for 66 runs by Catalunya.

The Player of the Match in this encounter was given to non-other than the Catalunya skipper Yasir Ali who lead his side from the front first with the bat by playing a not out innings of 74 runs. He also got the runout and at the start and bowled an over where he managed to pick up a wicket.

The Catalunya bowlers were on song from the word go as Raja Adeel, Shahbaz Shaukat, Nawazish Ali, and Ibrar Hussain picked up two wickets each.

Going into the finals of the ECS T10 Barcelona, Catalunya will be a happier side as they defeated their arch-rivals in such a crucial game quite comprehensively. They will be facing PAK I CARE in the finals but before that game, the Tigers will have a chance to redeem themselves and take some silverware home as they face off Badalona Shaheen CC up next in the Bronze finals.
