139/5 (10)
62/10 (8.2)
GOR won by 77 runs.
Player of the match: Abdus Samad
 
Gorkha 11 - 139/5 in 10 overs (Rahul Vishwakarma 50 off 23 balls, Mohammad Asaduzzaman 1/18 in 2 overs) beat Friendship CC - 62 all out (Mohammad Asaduzzaman 19 off 18 balls, Abdus Samad 4/15 in 2 overs) by 77 runs and progress to the semi-finals.

Abdus Samad started the fall of wickets for Gorkha 11 and the rest of the bowling and fielding backed him up. Madhukar Thapa picked up 3 wickets and Rahul Vishwakarma got 2 wickets as well, after getting 50 with the bat, as Friendship CC were bowled out in only 8.2 overs for a paltry 62.

Gorkha were by far the better side today as they did not let their opposition breathe easy at any stage. They were the worthy winners of the first quarter final.

From the Gucherre Cricket Ground in Albergania, this was the pair of Karthik and Bidipto, bringing you all the live action. Keep following Sportskeeda for more ECS Cartaxo action later in the day! 
8.2 Sripal Matta to Enamul Shamim, THAT IS IT! Length delivery, Shamim goes for the scoop and gets it to short third off the outer-half of the bat. The batsman try to steal a single but the fielder at short third fires a good throw to the keeper who whips off the bails quickly. So, Friendship CC have been bowled out for a mere 62 with Gorkha 11 sealing a 77-run victory. They move to the semi-finals with this win!

A couple of welcome boundaries and a six in the over to bring up Friendship CC's 50. They won't be enough to help them get over the line, but might as well give them some respectability. But once again, another wicket falls!
