La Manga Torrevieja won by 6 runs

La Manga, being asked to bat first posted a total of 95 runs on the board after the bowling side conceded 3 2 extras which proved to be too costly for them. Khalid Mehmood excelled with the ball as his bowling figures read 3/4 along with a maiden over in his two overs spell. 

In response, opener Usman Mushtaq scored 25 runs which included four boundaries, and was further supported by Jafar Iqbal who tried his level best to guide his side to a victory. Unfortunately, they fell short by six runs and ended up on the losing side in the first match of the three-match championship. 

Connor Wood scalped two wickets for La Manga while Charlie Rumistrzewicz, Paul Hennessy, Jack Perman, and Tom Vine took one wicket each.
Over: 10 | Summary: 0 0 1 W 6 0 Bowler: Tom Vine Score: 89/6
9.6 Tom Vine to Jafar Iqbal, no run! WHAT A SAVE by Hennessy! He has saved the game! Length ball on the off stump, Iqbal clears his front foot and smacks that down the ground. Hennessy, who is patrolling the long off fence, leaps in the air, pushes the ball back into the field of play and falls over the rope! The match referee has another look at it and Hennessy had done some brilliant work there to save the match for the La Manga Torrevieja as they edge past the Minhaj CC by just 6 runs!
9.5 Tom Vine to Jafar Iqbal, SIX! BANG! One down, one more needed! Back of a length ball on the middle stump, sits up nicely for Iqbal who rocks back and dispatches that over mid-wicket for a huge maximum!
9.4 Tom Vine to Waqas Basharat, OUT! CAUGHT! Back of a length ball on the middle stump, Basharat makes room and looks to go big downtown. The ball is bowled slower and the batsman ends up checking his shot at the last moment. The fielder at long on takes a brilliant catch to send Basharat packing!
9.3 Tom Vine to Jafar Iqbal, DROPPED! Skiddy back of a length ball on the off stump, rushes Iqbal into the pull who miscues it towards extra cover. The fielder there gets under the ball but drops a dolly. 
9.2 Tom Vine to Jafar Iqbal, no run, length ball on the off stump, Iqbal smacks that down the ground and the bowler does well to stop that. 
9.1 Tom Vine to Jafar Iqbal, back of a length ball on the middle stump, Iqbal pulls that towards deep mid-wicket and sends Basharat back. No run!
A close game is on the cards with Minhaj CC required 14 runs off the last six balls. The one huge maximum from Mubashar Ali has reduced some pressure over the batsmen. 
Over: 9 | Summary: 1 1 1 1 6 W Bowler: Paul Hennessy Score: 82/5
8.6 Paul Hennessy to Mubashar Ali, OUT! BOWLED! Full, attacking the stumps and Hennessy has his revenge! A brilliant delivery and Ali is unable to connect with his wild swing across the line! The stumps go for a toss and Ali has to walk back!
8.5 Paul Hennessy to Mubashar Ali, SIX! BANG! follows the batsman who is making room, a tad short though and Ali latches onto that! Sends that packing over the mid-wicket region for a huge maximum!

8.1 Paul Hennessy to Mubashar Ali, yorker on the middle stump, Ali gets the inside edge on that towards square leg for a single. 
The batting side just gets a single from this over along with the loss of one wicket. Too much pressure on both sides with the one ECL21 spot at stake. Expect an interesting game from here on!
