That's all we've got for you from this watch as I, Suraj Jajoo, and my co-commentator Ankit Sharma, take your leave. Stay tuned for more live-action coming your way on Sportskeeda. Till then, stay safe, maintain social distancing and wear your masks, this shall too pass. See ya!
The wicket-keeper batsman Sachin Mandy Gangareddy took his time to settle on the wicket in the start and it just took him one boundary to finish it off in the end. 65 runs weren't going to be enough for the First Contact. A disciplined bowling effort was expected from them but unfortunately, that wasn't the case. There were too many extras and a dropped catch in the innings and that's what costs them the game as they still had the chance to rise up to the occasion in the end. 
Well, The First Contact didn't start well with 12 runs coming off the first over. Later, Zahir Shah Zakhil struck early in his first over knocking down Suraj Lal Putta Motilal. MTV Stallions were under pressure after this wicket as no boundary was scored for the next 2 overs. Basit Orya did change the momentum in the 5th over. And, right when everyone thought that the match was done, Zahir Shah Zakhil struck again in his second over and things seemed tricky for the batting side at one stage.

8.6 Mohammad Sharif Safi to Sachin Mandy Gangareddy, full again, this time on the leg stump, tipped away towards long on for a single to win the game. A comfortable win for the Stallions who win with 8 wickets to spare. 
Right then, the two batsmen didn't take much time to wrap it up as they win the match by 8 wickets. 
8.5 Mohammad Sharif Safi to Sachin Mandy Gangareddy, full and straight, punched back to the bowler, trying to look for a single, but unable to find a gap. 
8.4 Mohammad Sharif Safi to Sachin Mandy Gangareddy, excellent delivery from the former, but Gangareddy is lucky to get an inside edge that runs away past the keeper. The batsmen sprint back for two, but had the keeper been in his place, Gangareddy would have been back in the pavillion by now. One to win. 
8.3 Mohammad Sharif Safi to Sachin Mandy Gangareddy, fullish delivery, punched to mid off for no runs. 
8.2 Mohammad Sharif Safi to Sachin Mandy Gangareddy, just a bit shorter this time, swings away from the right hander and goes through to the keeper. 
8.1 Mohammad Sharif Safi to Sachin Mandy Gangareddy, full length delivery, on the pads, flicked away fine past the square leg fielder for two easy runs. 
Mohammad Sharif Safi to bowl the penultimate 9th over.
Now, this game seems done and dusted for the First contact. It was always a matter of time until the batsmen get going. Sachin Mandy Gangareddy, rising to the occasion with that boundary straight down the ground and later the skipper joins the party with one more in the end. MTV Stallions need 5 runs in 12 balls.
