Wow. The City Lions have huffed and puffed their way to a 4-wicket win here by ending up scoring 93/6 in 9 overs. The man who controlled this chase for the City Lions was Mubashar Ali, who top-scored with 37(23) and he was supported by Ahsan Shafaqat initially, who scored 13(9), before Raja Sikandar strode out and whacked a 7-ball 22* which took City Lions through to the win. The rest of the City Lions batsmen just kept falling over each other & had negligible single-digit scores.

The Hira Sabadell bowlers really put in an outstanding shift today to try and make this game interesting & keep their side in it, with Ikram Ul Haq ending up with the best bowling figures today for them with a superb 2/10 in 2 overs & he had Fida Hussain bowling just 1 over, but conceding just 8 runs from it & taking a wicket to end up with 1/8, while Mehmood Akhtar bowled the 1 over too, which was a little expensive, but he took a wicket and had 1/18 from that 1 over, while captain Shanawar Shahzad bowled 2 overs & had 1/21 from them and Heera Laal also bowled 2 overs and ended up with 1/24 from those overs. Anwar Ul Haq bowled just 1 over, from which he conceded 12 runs.

This game which initially looked like a cakewalk for the City Lions, especially after their bowling in the first innings, has ended up becoming a pot-boiler, where City Lions had to somehow scratch & claw their way to a win here.

WOW. This game just keeps twisting and turning and the massive wicket of Mubashar Ali is scalped by Akhtar & a superb catch by Heera Laal, with the City Lions now 76/6. The equation now reads 12 off 11 & Irfan Muhammad is the new batsman at the crease.
