GNS won by 33 runs.
 
Right then. Golden Star will cherish this win and look forward to confirming their qualification spot but things can escalate quickly when these two sides meet again in a few minutes for their second fixture. There's plenty of action left in today's set of ECS T10 fixtures, so stay tuned on Sportskeeda for the coverage! Meanwhile, this is Raghav and Bidipto signing off.
Koln Challengers 86/4 in 10 overs lose by 33 runs against Golden Star.
Naga Guntur 32(19) | Rahib Nawabi 1/5(2)


What a win, what a win for the Golden Star! They have completely outplayed the Challengers in all three departments of the game. Chasing 120 was never going to be easy but Koln were off to a dream start after Guntur and Potale scored 41 runs in the powerplay itself. However, it was all downhill for Koln from there. The spinners were introduced and they dried up the flow of runs. Only 20 runs were scored in the next four overs where Nawabi and Naqvi did not concede a single boundary off the bat.

Once the spinners were done, it was too late for the Challengers to recover their ship. They started losing wickets while trying to play the big shots and could only get this far in the innings. Credit to the bowlers for containing the Challengers after the powerplay. They were just not being able to take on the attack after the spin twins blockage.

9.6 Paritosh Bairagi to Aravind Muthusubramanian, GOLDEN STAR BONN GET THE JOB DONE! Fuller outside off, an attempted hit over the top and an outside edge to third man for a run only to finish the match! 
9.5 Paritosh Bairagi to Naule Aravind, full on leg, an attempted drive, and a leg-bye in the end to point. 
9.4 Paritosh Bairagi to Aravind Muthusubramanian, slower yorker on middle, tapped round to square-leg for a single. 
9.3 Paritosh Bairagi to Srinivas Nareshkumar, BOWLED HIM! MIDDLE STUMP GOES FOR A TOSS! Full and straight, the batter misses his shot from the crease but the bowler hits the middle of middle!
9.2 Paritosh Bairagi to Srinivas Nareshkumar, fuller and slower outside off and a play and a miss to leg! Dot ball. 
9.1 Paritosh Bairagi to Srinivas Nareshkumar, full toss outside off and a swing and a miss! Dot ball, bad miss!
So the win looks completely out of the equation now. Koln need six sixers in the final over to force a golden ball. It's been done in the past in cricket but well, what are the odds?

Amey Potale c Amal Mudappattu b Leela Gurugubelli 20(21b 2x4 0x6)
8.1 Leela Gurugubelli to Amey Potale, short and WIDE outside off! 
Safi gave a couple of opportunities to the batters, especially with that free hit but Koln haven't been capitalizing on anything today. The end is near for them.
