Germany were nearly out of the chase as they were struggling at 35/3 after 5 overs of their chase. At that stage, even the Germans would not have thought that they could have won the match. But that is the beauty of cricket one never knows when things turn. The runs started to come thick and fast from the seventh over and it was one-way traffic from that point onwards. The star of Germany's thrilling chase is Rohit Singh as he remained unconquered on 57 from 23 balls. Short cameos from Abdul-Shakoor Rahimzei and Fayaz Khan Nasseri did help Germany's cause. Rahimzei scored 14 from 8 balls and Nasseri hit 12 runs from just 4 deliveries. It all boiled down to the last over of the chase as 12 runs were needed from 6 balls. The last over was a story in itself. Amir Sharif was given the responsibility to bowl the most important over of the contest. Sharif gave away just 3 runs from the first two balls and picked up a wicket of Fayaz Nasseri. Husnain Kabeer then walks to the middle hit a four and got out. Finn Sadaragani was then in the thick of the action but he got out on the first ball of his innings. It meant Germany needed 6 runs from the last ball on the match with Sharif on a hat-trick. A lot was riding on the last delivery of the match and Sreekesh Srinivas blasted the last delivery over backward point to seal the match for Germany. 

Earlier, Italy finished with 111/5 from 10 overs. Winning the toss, the German skipper opted to bowl first but he would have expected much better from his bowlers. Germany started well as they picked the wicket of opener Manoj Roodrigo in just the first over of the innings. But the other opener Hassan Ahmad scored a brisk 20 to give his team a fast start. Italy's middle-order was solid as Baljit Singh scored a quickfire 32 from 13 balls. Then Amir Sharif blasted 24 from 8 deliveries and Ammad Khan remained not-out on 20 from 13 balls.  Italy kept losing wickets at regular intervals but the batters made sure that the fall of the wickets did not affect the run rate as they kept fetching boundaries to keep the scoreboard moving. Fayaz Khan Nasseri was the pick of the bowlers from Germany as he picked 2 wickets for just 20 runs from his 2 overs. There was a wicket for each of Shahir Malikzai, Sreekesh Srinivas and Rohit Singh. 
OH WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT! !!!! GERMANY HAS WON IT OUT OF NOWHERE!!!!! WE HAVE BEEN TREATED TO A THRILLER.
