That's it from this game of the Dream 11 Emirates D20 tournament! Look out at this space for more coverage of the league and all other live updates and match commentaries as well! This is Rishab, and my partner, Nikhil, signing off! 
Turned out to be a one-sided affair towards the end  ! Brilliant bowling performance from the Blues! They were all over the Abu Dhabi batsmen and kept it tight right from the beginning. They never let lose at any point, just kept on attacking! The one stand out performer was Aryan Lakra! Figures of 5/16 from four overs! Getting a fifer in a T20 is not at all easy! This young lad bowled a dream spell that completely ripped through the Abu Dhabi batting line-up. It tore them apart and he's going to remember this for a long time to come! Abu Dhabi needed to start well which they didn't! They kept losing wickets at regular intervals and never had a chance to get back into the game! Let's just say Aryan was brutal and he never let them stage a comeback of any sorts. The other bowlers did a decent job too and it was a great team effort that! A modest total of 142 turned out to be way too much to get in the end for Abu Dhabi! They would have liked to keep the total down by 15-20 runs. The Blues did good enough to get past 140 and then their bowlers put up a terrific show! They will be mighty delighted to start off a high with a big win in terms of the margin as well! Great way to start any tournament! It's still very early but Abu Dhabi need to regroup from this loss and have some thinking to do!!a
And that's the game! ECB Blues have won by 36 runs. Abu Dhabi finish on 106/9. A great finish from Waheed! A blinder of a catch from the keeper. The Blues fielding and catching has been brilliant too. They start off on a winning note and it's quite a convincing performance!  
Over: 20 | Summary: 1 1 W 0 0 1 Bowler: Score: 0/0
19.6 Waheed Ahmed to Ben Willgoss, length ball outside off and Ben works this one to square leg and takes a single to end the innings ECB Blues win this game by 36 runs!
19.5 Waheed Ahmed to Ben Willgoss, length ball outside off and Ben tries to cut this one to the off side and misses.
19.4 Waheed Ahmed to Ben Willgoss, length ball on middle and leg, tries to flick this one and misses. The bowler appeals for a lbw but not out given.
19.3 Waheed Ahmed to Karthik Nagendran, OUT! Full length ball outside off and Karthik goes for a heave and gets an edge to the keeper who leaps and takes a brilliant catch.
19.2 Waheed Ahmed to Mudassir Hussain, length ball on the stumps, hits it straight down the ground for a single.
19.1 Waheed Ahmed to Karthik Nagendran, bowls it fuller and works this one for a single.
Not much Zahoor had to do there. Just get it in the tight areas and he did that alright. It's 41 off the last over now! Abu Dhabi should look to get a few blows for their net run rate at least here

Another tight over from Karthik! Another wicket going down. Brilliant stuff. It's 43 off 12 now. Safe to say this game looks as good as over for Abu Dhabi now!
