Albano win by 9 runs!

This brings us to the end of the coverage of this ECS T10 Milan game between Albano and Fresh Tropical. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for the latest updates and scores from the world of sports. This is Abhinav Kumar and my colleague Sooryanarayanan Sesha signing off for now. Thank you for joining us and stay safe!
What an absolute pot-boiling thriller we've had today here, with Albano somehow pulling the game back and restricting Fresh Tropical to 100/7 after the end of their 10 overs and winning this game by 9 runs. Fresh Tropical would be kicking themselves after being 52/1 after 4 overs and then stumbling all over the place in the last 6 overs, to score only 48 runs and losing 6 wickets to go with it.

For Fresh Tropical, their top-scorer was Amir Sharif, who scored a quickfire 27 from just 10 balls, while Muhammad Imran scored 22 from 14 balls, while Hassan Jamil and Shahzad Sarwar towards the end scored 12 runs each, with Jamil scoring 12 off 9 balls and Sarwar scoring 12 from 6 deliveries, while the other batsmen mostly scored in the low single digits and kept following each other into the dugout as if it were a procession.

The Albano bowlers ensured that their team stayed in the game and their star man with the ball was Kamaljit Singh, who got 2/19 from his 2 overs, while Muhammad Zaki also bowled very economically to end with 1/10 in 2 overs and Jorawar Singh had an equally decent spell of 1/16 in 2 overs. Asim Ali and Bharti Bangar both got hit around the park, especially Bangar, but both ended up getting a wicket, with Asim Ali having 1/25 in 2 overs, while Bangar ended up with 1/30 in 2 overs.

Albano with this win have managed to stay alive in the competition to compete for higher honours and they've got to thank their bowlers for this.
Over: 10 | Summary: 1 6 2 2 W 0 Bowler: Bharti Bangar Score: 100/7
9.6 Bharti Bangar to Qasim Muhammad, back of a length and angling onto the leg-stump, chops it back onto his thigh pad as he plays all around it! There's the game! Albano have pulled off a thriller at the Milan Cricket Ground - they win by 9 runs and stay alive in the competition!
After all the tap he's taken today, Bangar has finally taken a wicket, with the dangerous-looking Shahzad Sarwar perishing and Albano have somehow pulled this game back into their favour, with just 1 ball remaining and Fresh Tropical needing 10 runs to win the game.

Suliman Hakimi is the new batsman at the crease.
9.5 Bharti Bangar to Shahzad Sarwar, OUT! THIS IS THE GAME! Short around off, Sarwar spoons a pull very high over square leg and straight into the hands of the boundary rider who breaks into a jig! The end is nigh now!
9.4 Bharti Bangar to Shahzad Sarwar, INCREDIBLE FIELDING! IT'S ALL HAPPENING OUT THERE! In the slot around off and Sarwar clears his front leg and heaves it high over wide long on, the fielder positions himself at the edge of the ropes and parries the ball back into the field of play on the leap! Prevented a certain six there!
9.3 Bharti Bangar to Shahzad Sarwar, EXCELLENT FIELDING! Short again and Sarwar pulls it into the gap over mid-wicket before the fielder running to his right sticks his hand out and keeps it inside the ropes; they charge back for the second on an awry throw to the keeper!
9.2 Bharti Bangar to Shahzad Sarwar, SIX! THERE IS ONE! Short of a length and Sarwar absolutely murders a pull over deep mid-wicket! 14 needed off 4 now!
9.1 Bharti Bangar to Qasim Muhammad, FALLS SAFE! Short outside off, completely mistimes the pull as it skews off the top-edge and lands safely at the ring near the covers
A slightly expensive, but a successful over nonetheless for Asim Ali, with 14 runs and a wicket from it and after 9 overs, Fresh Tropical are 89/6 and need 21 runs from the last over.

Bharti Bangar will be bowling the final over of this match.

8.6 Asim Ali to Shahzad Sarwar, slaps a back of a length delivery over the covers; the ball drops safe and after a bit of hesitation they complete the second run as the bowler fails to collect it cleanly before dropping the ball onto the stumps!
8.5 Asim Ali to Shahzad Sarwar, banged short and quick, goes over the pull for a priceless dot ball!
8.5 Asim Ali to Shahzad Sarwar, WIDE! Has to reload this one! Albano will not want to bleed wides now!
8.4 Asim Ali to Qasim Muhammad, fuller this time outside off, heaved over extra cover again but this time the ball is picked up by the man running across to his right
8.3 Asim Ali to Qasim Muhammad, FOUR! THUMPED! Short outside off and Qasim thumps it from the crease over extra cover and picks is spot over the fielder halfway through!
Another timely wicket and Fresh Tropical are frittering the game away, with Jamil the latest batsman to go back into the hut and after 8.2 overs, Fresh Tropical are 81/6 and need 29 runs in 8 balls.

Shahzad Sarwar is the new batsman at the crease.
8.2 Asim Ali to Hassan Jamil, OUT! MASSIVE MOMENT IN THE GAME! Full outside off, overpitched in fact and Jamil gets down on one knee to loft it high over extra cover but he picks out the boundary rider to perfection! A real body blow this as Jamil departs!
8.1 Asim Ali to Hassan Jamil, SIX! WHACKED OVER MID-WICKET! Steps out to a short one around off and smothers a pull that travels way back over the fence! Just the start that Fresh Tropical needed!
