Kings XI CC win the match by 5 wickets

What a game have we witnessed here. This has been the highest ever total chased down in the ECS tournament history. It was a roller coaster ride as the team that did one mistake less, won the match and has now advanced into the finals of ECS Bologna.

Chasing a record total of 150. Kings XI CC lost a wicket in the second over as Muhammad Awais handed an easy catch to the fielder in the ring. Vikas Kumar and Simranjit Singh joined forces out in the middle and they played out a few delightful strokes as the pair put on an absolute display of hitting, smashing the long ball every now and then in the over.

This happed till the 9th over and only 9 runs were needed to win off the last 6 deliveries. Simranjit Singh lost his wicket owing to a stumping and Jaswinder and Malkeet Singh played loose strokes and lost their wickets. 4 runs were needed for a win and the captain Jaipal Singh smashed a maximum into the sky and sealed the deal for his side, helping them qualify for the finals.

The pick of the bowlers has to be Ali Hassan. He was introduced into the attack in the 8th over and he did an immediate impact picking the wicket of Vikas Kumar. He later took the wickets of Simranjit Singh, Malkeet Singh and Jaswinder Singh, bowling the crunch last over, but was hit for a huge six on the last ball, trying his best to defend the total
Over: 10 | Summary: 1w W 0 0 4 W 6 Bowler: Ali Hassan Score: 152/4
9.6 Ali Hassan to Jaipal Singh, JAIPAL FINISHES IT OFF IN STYLEEEE! What a crackerjack of a game! Full delivery on middle and leg, it's in the slot for Jaipal who clears his front foot and clobbers it over mid-wicket, all the way for a maximum! Kings XI are into the finals and it's the captain's first ball maximum to win it for his side! Kings XI keep their unbeaten run intact as well, with the record run-chase.
Atiq Tabraiz is the new man in
9.5 Ali Hassan to Jaswinder Singh , OUT! CAUGHT! Tossed up on the leg stump, Jaswinder dances down the track and chips it but it's right down the throat of the fielder at deep mid-wicket! What drama!
9.4 Ali Hassan to Jaswinder Singh , FOUR! Full delivery on the leg stump, Jaswinderder steps down the track and flicks it behind square leg to find the fence! 4 in 2 needed!
9.3 Ali Hassan to Jaswinder Singh , back of a length delivery angling away, Jaswinder swings and misses and somehow the ball doesn't hit the stumps
9.2 Ali Hassan to Jaswinder Singh , back of a length delivery wraps Jaswidner on the pads as he tries to pull it and the keeper takes it on the full
Jaipal Singh is the new man in
9.1 Ali Hassan to Malkeet Singh, OUT! CAUGHT! full delivery on the stumps, Malkeet goes for the heave but gets a top edge that's looped high in the air and is pouched by the fielder at point! Pressure!
Malkeet Singh comes out in the middle
9.1 Ali Hassan to Simranjit Singh, OH DEAR, WHAT HAS HE DONE THERE? Full delivery down the leg side. Was a wide. Simranjit thought there's a chance for a single and strolls off for a walk.. Keeper can't believe it as he dislodges the stump! Poor way to lose your wicket...
16 runs come in the penultimate over and this has been really good batting from Simranjeet Singh, who makes it back in time as he completes a 3 run heist on the last ball of the over. 9 runs are needed now, whose favor does the game swing now

Ali Hassan will bowl the final over of the game
