Cricketers CC falling short by 20 runs in the end, from a stage where they were looking in control of the chase, Great turnaround from Vienna Afghan to seal this game and comeback after being under pressure defending the total. Bilal Zalmai remaining unbeaten on 47 for Cricketers CC but it was not enough in the end as he did not find enough support from anyone else. Baseer Khan with a 21-run cameo but that was about it and they faltered once they started loosing wickets. 

Brilliant bowling from Sahil Zadran and Itibarshah Deedar in particular, being tidy and picking wickets as well, helping their team get back in the contest when things were not going their way and they needed to bring in control with the opposition going fine in the chase. Cricketers will be disappointed after having lost this game when they had it set up so well at one point. 

In the end, a good all-round win for Vienna Afghan, by a comfortable margin of 20 runs and this was a much-needed win for them in this tournament. Will certainly boost their spirits up going ahead. A game that was there for the winning for Cricketers CC and some thinking for them to do going down in the chase the way they did!
Over: 10 | Summary: 0 W 0 0 0 4 Bowler: Itibarshah Deedar Score: 87/5
9.6 Itibarshah Deedar to Bilal Zalmai, FOUR! Bilal's struggling innings continues and he manages to send this one down to fine-leg region with unorthodox shot as he shuffles across the stumps too much and swats that one away towards fine-leg for a boundary. Vienna Afghan CC win this by 20 runs in the end.
9.5 Itibarshah Deedar to Bilal Zalmai, full delivery on the middle and off as Bilal doesn't connect it again and misses, inside edges on to his boots
9.4 Itibarshah Deedar to Bilal Zalmai, yorker length on the outside off again as Bilal once again goes for the ugly swing and misses it once again
9.3 Itibarshah Deedar to Bilal Zalmai, full delivery on the outside off as Bilal makes room and looks to heave it away but misses once again
9.2 Itibarshah Deedar to Bilal Zalmai, RUN-OUT! Terrible this for Cricketers CC. That was full on the outside off as Bilal reaches for it and slices it to the extra cover and there's huge confusion in the middle as Bilal down the pitch and Tariq too but Bilal sends Tariq back but he can't make it in time and has to go
9.1 Itibarshah Deedar to Bilal Zalmai, TERRIFIC! Yorker, came back right into the batsman as Bilal was cramped for it and just manages to squeeze it to the short fine-leg fielder for no run
Vienna Afghan are pulling this back or what? Wickets continuing to fall for Cricketers CC and it seems to be getting tougher with the moment for them in this chase now. Some turnaround this has been with the ball for Vienna. Brilliant penultimate over from Zadran this!
Over: 9 | Summary: 0 4 0 W 0 0 Bowler: Sahel Zadran Score: 83/4
8.6 Sahil Zadran to Tariq Ahmadzai, just too good from Sahil that was, what an over that was. Length delivery again on the stump as Tariq makes room to hoick it and misses, goes over the stumps in the end, dot to finish
8.5 Sahil Zadran to Tariq Ahmadzai, another yorker on the outside off as Tariq toe ends down to mid-off for no run
8.4 Sahil Zadran to Abdulwaseed Basit, OUT! CASTLED! What a yorker that was. Smearing yorker on the stumps as Basit looks to hoick it as he makes room and exposes his stumps and misses, rattles in the end
8.3 Sahil Zadran to Abdulwaseed Basit, OH! Brilliant yorker this time going past the batsman who looks to make room and whack it but misses
8.2 Sahil Zadran to Abdulwaseed Basit, FOUR! Too full on the outside off as Basit makes room and squirts that one away towards third-man region and runs away to the boundary
8.1 Sahil Zadran to Abdulwaseed Basit, good length delivery angling away down the outside the off as Basit has a big swing at it and misses
Couple of quick wickets going down and could this be the twist in this chase? Tidy over from Deedar and this game now looks like it is set to go down the wire. Just what Vienna needed at this stage under pressure from their bowlers and this is getting interesting all of a sudden!
