Falco CC win by 34 runs

As the commentators mentioned on air, in the end it was the tale of two very contrasting 9th overs. But Falco CC have played extremely well and have caused an upset of sorts by beating Badalona Shaheen CC. 

Falco CC elected to bat having won the toss and got off to a horrific start. Hamza Saleem managed to pick up two wickets in the very first over and Falco were put on the backfoot from the very outset. Their misery continued as they slumped to 25-4 at the halfway stage. 

But what followed thereafter was an incredible comeback which was led by opener Ijaz Ahmed and Abid Shahzad. Ahmed remained unbeaten on 30 from 25 balls while Abid Shahzad was dismissed after scoring a blistering 17-ball 47. 

The partnership between the duo helped Falco recover from 25-4 to 102-6 after they managed to score 77 runs in the 2nd half of their innings! 

Badalona Shaheen would have still fancied their chances at the halfway stage. However, they too were off to a sluggish start. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals and never managed to get the momentum going. 

The teams were positioned similarly after the 8 over mark, with Falco being 63-5 and Badalona Shaheen being 64-4. However, while Falco managed to smash 29 runs off the 9th over, Badalona Shaheen only managed to score 2 whilst also losing 2 wickets. And that was the difference between the two teams. 

That's all we've got for you today. We hope you enjoyed our coverage of Match-32 in the ECS T10 Barcelona between Falco CC and Badalona Shaheen CC. Do stay tuned to Sportskeeda as there are couple more matches coming your way. This is Anurag and Dwijesh signing off.

Falco are doing an excellent job of restricting the Badalona Shaheen batsmen. The six of the last ball would have definitely helped, but they've got a huge task ahead of them as the required run-rate is now 19.5
