Jamshed Khan 33*(23) | Safi Rahman 1/14 (2)

Dusseldorf Blackcaps win by 9 wickets with 13 balls to spare.


The glamour shot wins the game for the Dusseldorf Blackcaps! They have 7 wins in 7 matches, that is some streak! Not once, not even after the departure of Venkatraman Ganesan were they under pressure in this run-chase, the top-order took it upon themselves to seal the game and in some style! Ganesan and Jamshed Khan, with the help of some rather wayward bowling from the Lemgo bowlers, got the Blackcaps off to a solid start. Both of them smoothly played out the situation, hardly trying to slog their way through. Ganesan, though, tried a shot that was too funky in nature and ended up losing his poles. It wasn't the biggest of concerns, for Muhammad Raheel joined Jamshed, and with the required rate creeping under 6, they ensured that the Blackcaps coasted to the finish line. Jamshed waited till the last couple of runs to clear the ropes, and seal a seventh successive win in sumptuous fashion!
7.5 Ankit Tomar to Jamshed Khan, SIX! SEALS THE GAME IN STYLE! Dussledorf Blackcaps showing why they are the team to beat, continue their unbeaten streak here. Change of pace, length delivery on the outside off, Jamshed waits and throws everything at it and launches it way over deep cover fence for a maximum.
7.4 Ankit Tomar to Muhammad Raheel, full on the outside off, Raheel skips down the track and squeezes it to deep covers for a single, the fielder fumbles but they decide against taking another one.
7.3 Ankit Tomar to Muhammad Raheel, FOUR LEG-BYES! Raheel was shaping for another big shot, Tomar strays it down the leg-side, brushes the pad and runs down to fine-leg for another boundary.
7.2 Ankit Tomar to Jamshed Khan, full and shaping away on the outside off, Jamshed leans and pushes it uppishly through the covers for a single.
7.1 Ankit Tomar to Jamshed Khan, back of a length on the outside off, Jamshed goes reaching for it to cut and misses.
Ankit Tomar (1-0-9-0) is back into the attack

6.6 Mudassar Iqbal to Muhammad Raheel, FOUR! Poor delivery, full toss on the pads, Raheel steps down the track again and flicks that one away, through backward square-leg, races away and picks out the ropes.
6.5 Mudassar Iqbal to Muhammad Raheel, back of a length on the leg-stump, Raheel down the track again to heave but gets the inside edge on to his pad.
6.4 Mudassar Iqbal to Muhammad Raheel, FOUR! Skips down the track to hoick that one away but gets a thick inside edge, goes wide of the keeper to his left, runs down to fine-leg for another boundary.
6.3 Mudassar Iqbal to Jamshed Khan, DROPPED! Full delivery on the pads, Jamshed flicks that one off his wrists, straight down the deep mid-wicket fielder's throat who shells a sitter.
6.3 Mudassar Iqbal to Jamshed Khan, WIDE! Full delivery but shapes way outside the off-stump, called a wide.
6.2 Mudassar Iqbal to Jamshed Khan, FOUR! Full delivery but strays it down the leg-side, Jamshed gets a tickle down the leg-side, runs away down to fine-leg for another boundary.
6.1 Mudassar Iqbal to Muhammad Raheel, length delivery on the outside off, Raheel reaches to tap it into the off-side for a quick single.
What is with the drinks break and the immediate fall of wickets today? Ganesan was looking comfortable as ever, he went for a shot only he could define and lost his stumps comprehensively! Dusseldorf, though, need less than a run-a-ball from hereon, no pressure on them whatsoever.
