MSC Frankfurt 106/7 (10 ov)
FCA 04 Darmstadt 107/6 (10 ov)
FCA 04 Darmstadt won by 4 wickets
FCD win by 4 wickets.

They were off to a shaky start but were standing firm on the foundation laid by their openers. Husnain Kabeer (17 runs in 9 balls) and Muhammad Mudassar (18 runs in 5 balls) started off well but fell apart soon as they finished the powerplay on 38/3 after 3 overs. Wickets kept falling for FCD and runs dried up for them as they slipped to 45/5 after 5 overs. In came their hero of the match, Umar Faroz (37 runs in 21 balls) and joined hands with Tahir Ahmed (24 runs in 14 balls) as the pair stitched a valuable and a match winning partnership of 59 runs to help FCD win the match on the last ball of the match.

MSF were exceptional with the ball but weren't supported well by their fielders. There were many dropped catches which allowed the pair of  Umar Faroz and Tahir Ahmed to breathe easy and execute the big hits without much fuss. Muslim Yar (2/10 in 2 overs) and Shahid Afridi (2/34 in 2 overs) were the show stoppers for the MSF bowling lineup as the chipped in with regular wickets in the powerplay and didn't allow the FCD batsmen to free their arms.

That's all we have from the live coverage of this match as I, Lavil Saldanha and my colleague, Pradeep Somashekhar sign off. Do check Sportskeeda for all live match commenatries and sports related news pieces. Until next time, its goodbye from our end. SEE YA!! 
9.6 Muslim Yar to Tahir Ahmed, OH! Quicker and faster delivery this time on the 4th stump line, Tahir looked to gently guide it to the third man but that lobs up and goes to the short third man fielder and it drops short off him and they run a single to clinch this victory, what a match we've witnessed, a nail-biting encounter in the end!
