Player of the match: Janaka Wass

Game, set, match and league to Jinnah Brescia CC. The rightful team that turned up on the day will lift the trophy! A total of 129 was always going to be challenging for Janjua Brescia, especially in a big final. And things were bound to go awry when they lost two wickets in the very first over of their chase. Abdul Rehman fell soon after but Waseem Ahmad came out with the intention of wasting no time whatsover as he clouted Faheem Nazir for two consecutive sixes to open his account. But there was no stopping a rampaging Janaka Wass who cut the Janjua batting lineup to size with a four-wicket haul.

With the score reading 34-5 at the end of the 3rd over, there was never going to be a way back for Janjua who somehow managed to bat out their entire quota of 10 overs. It was a sorry batting effort in the end from Janjua although they really were caught napping in the field as well having fluffed a number of chances coming their way. Needless to say that it came back to haunt them in the end - so much so that as many as eight Jinnah Brescia bowlers had some fun in rolling their arm over during their defense.

A comfortable 54-run victory in the end that not only crowns Jinnah Brescia CC as the champions of the ECS T10 Brescia but also catapults them through to the European Cricket League - a fantastic achievement by Rukhsar Ahmed and Co.
Janjua do ensure that they do not get bowled out but it doesn't matter - it is Jinnah Brescia who are the Champions of the final leg of the ECS T10 Italy in Brescia! They've simply strolled to a 54-run victory in the final! 
Over: 10 | Summary: 1 0 4 1 1 1 Bowler: Muhammad Sajjad Score: 74/10
9.6 Muhammad Sajjad to Muhammad Saqib, length delivery outside the off-stump, plays it with soft hands towards cover. That's the match and the league. Jinnah Brescia are crowned the champions of Brescia!
9.5 Muhammad Sajjad to Muhammad Afzal, full ball on the stumps, mistimes the heave down to long-on for a single
9.4 Muhammad Sajjad to Muhammad Saqib, charges down the wicket but doesn't get to the pitch of the ball, mistimes the slap down to long-on
9.3 Muhammad Sajjad to Muhammad Saqib, FOUR! Drops this one short, he rocks back and pulls it away to the wide long-on region, one bounce into the fence
9.2 Muhammad Sajjad to Muhammad Saqib, full and wide of off, plays it aerially to the fielder at sweeper cover but doesn't go through for the single
Down to the last over but alas, it hasn't been an edge-of-the-seat thriller. Jinnah Brescia's players will not be complaining though.
