Falco Zalmi CC won by 4 runs.
Falco Zalmi CC won this match by 4 runs!

A perfect start to the ECS T10, Barcelona. Absolute madness and drama till the end. What a nail-biting contest this tuned out to be!! BSH definitely looked like the favorites to chase this target down and win this match.

But the questions asked at the halfway stage that will Falco bowlers step up and get the job done and they surely have as they bowled through their lines and lengths, stuck to their plans, and held their nerves till the end.

After having a shaky start, Badalona batsmen Kuldeep Lal and Babar Khan got their side out of trouble and had settled in well. They also managed to keep up with the run rate as both these batsmen continued to rotate the strike and kept hitting the odd boundaries through the over.

The twist in this match occurred when Babar Khan (14 off 13) was dismissed in the 7th over by Naeem Shah and clearly brought this contest back to life. After that BSH batsmen just kept losing them and nobody hung out alongside Kuldeep Lal. 

This just helped Falco get stronger and stronger through the end as Badalona could not hold their nerves. In the end, Kuldeep Lal scored 54 runs off 34 balls but could not get his side across the line and make this innings count.

Looking back BSH probably had a lapse just a couple of times in this match, one in the first innings where Malik Mati leaked out 26 runs in the penultimate over and the other being the dismissal of Babat Khan and that just cost them this match.

A twist in the tale here? After the departure of Babar, Kuldeep has just stopped with the boundaries. The new man Sajawal tries to break the shackles and hits one in the air and loses his wicket. Kuldeep is now in a bit of a tricky situation here whether he should take the game deep or try to end the game here by going for the wild swings? BSH now need 17 runs from 12 balls!
