That is the end of Sportskeeda's coverage of Match 14 in the ECS Barcelona T10 between Catalunya Cricket Club and Falco Zalmi Cricket Club. Thank you so much for joining us today, this is Anurag Hegde and Maanas Upadhyay signing off. 

It was an extremely topsy turvy first innings after both teams kept trading blows back and forth and the pattern was no different in the 2nd innings either.

Catalunya managed to post a fairly decent total of 132-6 thanks to some explosive batting from Ibrar Hussain who got a 15 ball 29 and a lower order surge from Ramiz Mehmood who got an unbeaten 30 from just 13 deliveries. While there was some swing on offer for the Falco Zalmi CC bowlers early on, they failed to exploit it as they were unable to control the ball. Moreover, they conceded as many as 28 extras in a bowling performance that could be termed as extremely indisciplined. 

After getting off to a flier of a start with the bat in the 2nd innings, Falco Zalmi CC suffered a catastrophic batting collapse as Nawazish Ali managed to pick up 3 wickets in the 3rd over. Once Catalunya were on top, they kept applying more pressure by continuing to pick up wickets at regular intervals and FZL were under the hammer. But Rehman Ullah and Naeem Shah staged an impressive comeback with some lusty blows and kept Falco in the game. Naeem Shah in particular batted out of his skin as he smashed the ball to all parts of the ground.

It came down to the last over with Falco needing 14 to win, but Yasir Ali held his nerve and bowled a fantastic final over. Rehman Ullah who’d played the perfect second fiddle to Naeem Shah up until that point failed to get the ball away as he played out 3 consecutive dot balls in the final over.

The Falco lower order gave Catalunya a good run for their money but in the end Catalunya walk away with the victory. Not their most convincing one by any stretch of imagination but they’ll take it anyway. Nawazish Ali has been named the Man of the Match for his excellent spell of 3-21 from his 2 overs. Catalunya CC win by 8 runs.
