Match summary:

Marsta 76/8 (10 Overs)
Shahid Mustafa 53*(31), Hakeem Abdullah 3/7 (2 overs)

Hammarby 77/2 (7 Overs)
Azam Mohammad 37*(22), Ajmal Raza 1/14 (2 overs)

Hammarby win by 7 wickets with 18 balls to spare


Hammarby get there with the utmost comfort in the end, thanks to a delightful power-hitting display from Azam Mohammad. Marsta had an early breakthrough when Sadat Sidiqi miscued one off Ajmal Raza down to the palms of Arslan Atta, but Azam Mohammad walked in after that and absolutely owned the rest of the powerplay. Mohammad's brutal onslaught meant that the game was more or less decided in the first 3 overs itself, and after that, Mohammad could take up a more sedate role. Hamid Sulehri was introduced into the attack, he cleaned up Khalid Mehmood, bowled a tight over, and looked to get Marsta back in the game, but it was never going to happen with the required rate already under 6. Hakeem Abdullah walked in and gave Azam Mohammad company, as the duo safely took their side home with 8 wickets and 3 overs to spare.

6.6 Share Ali to Azam Mohammad, THAT'S IT! This time Hammerby made short work of the total and they even it out to finish the day as they pick up their two points as well and register their first win of the tournament. Low full toss on the off-stump, Azam heaves it to deep mid-wicket for a single.
6.5 Share Ali to Hakeem Abdullah, length delivery on the off-stump, slower one as Abdullah looks to heave but mistimes it to deep square-leg for a single.
6.4 Share Ali to Hakeem Abdullah, full delivery on the middle and off, Abdullah drilled that one straight back to the bowler.
6.3 Share Ali to Hakeem Abdullah, FOUR MORE! Short delivery the middle and leg, Abdullah walks down the track and pulls it awkwardly but goes over the fielder at deep square-leg, bounces in front of the ropes for another boundary.
6.2 Share Ali to Hakeem Abdullah, FOUR! The fielding has been horrible for Marsta in this game, the fielder at short third-man running to his right, that goes to his left in the end and runs away. Abdullah gets a thick outside edge as he looks to cut and picks up a boundary.
6.1 Share Ali to Azam Mohammad, short and down the leg-side, Azam went to pull but gets the inside edge down to fine-leg for a single.
Share Ali (1-0-11-0) is back into the attack
