Right, that is all from this European Cricket Series contest! Switch tabs and catch all the live action from the final game of the day as these two sides lock horns once again. Until next time then, this is me, Maanas Upadhyay, and my fellow commentator, Pradeep, signing off! Goodbye! 
Indiska 71/7 (10) lose to Linkoping by 34 runs.

Tanzim Thobhani 31(20) |  Kamran Rashid 2-9(2) | Asad Javed 2-13(2)
Arshad Awan 1-17(2) | Saberali Syed 1-20(20)

It has been a poor showing with the bat for Indiska and they have absolutely surrendered in this match. They got off to a poor start, losing three wickets in the powerplay itself. After the spectacular top-order collapse, they found a saviour in Tanzim Thobhani, who settled in and proceeded to take on the bowlers in his handy 2-ball 31 knock. However, he lacked support from the other end, putting pressure on him - which eventually led to his downfall. Indiska never really looked in the game as wickets kept tumbling and Linkoping continued asserting their dominance in this contest, which has been quite a one-sided one in the end. It was a field day out for the Linkoping bowlers, with plenty of runs in the bag. They bowled fearlessly and were not afraid to bang it in or pitch it up early in the innings. A top performance from Linkoping and they will certainly be pleased with the way they have gone about their business. They will look to carry this momentum into the next game. As for Indiska, it is back to the drawing board and will have plenty of issues to address.

9.6 Kamran Rashid to Mithun Redkar, OUT! KNOCKED HIM OVER! Kamran finishes the game with another wicket, this has been a clinical effort from Linkoping who register their first win straight away and plenty to ponder for Indiska in the next game. Back of a length on the middle and off, Redkar swipes across the line and misses, clips the top of middle and off.
9.5 Kamran Rashid to Harish Rishi, short on the outside off, Rishi makes room and slices it over the covers but gets just a single.
9.4 Kamran Rashid to Mithun Redkar, OH MY! Short on the middle and off, Redkar on the backfoot looks to pull but gets hurried and hits on the shoulder in the end.
9.3 Kamran Rashid to Harish Rishi, OH! Short delivery on the off-stump, fiery delivery as Rishi was in all sorts of trouble as he went to pull, top edge's it but doesn't carry to the third-man fielder.
9.2 Kamran Rashid to Mithun Redkar, short again on the fourth stump, Redkar this time gets it wide of the short cover fielder and picks up a single.
9.1 Kamran Rashid to Mithun Redkar, short delivery on the fourth stump, Redkar gives himself some room and slaps it straight to covers.
Kamran Rashid [1-0-5-1] is back into the attack

As the match trudges along towards it's inevitable result, Indisika will look to take a few positives into the next match. With 39 runs required off the last over, the batters should look to swing for the fences to reduce the margin of defeat so that the loss does not hamper their net run-rate by far too much.

8.6 Asad Javed to Harish Rishi, full delivery on the off-stump, Rishi drilled it straight back to the bowler for a dot to finish the over.
8.5 Asad Javed to Mithun Redkar, length delivery on the off-stump, Redkar looks to swipe but he's top edged it over the keeper's head and that falls safely as they pick up a single.
8.4 Asad Javed to Harish Rishi, EDGED AND DROPPED! Asad could've had another, the keeper was wrong footed himself, he reaches back to his right and spills, Rishi gets a thick outside edge to the keeper.
Harish Rishi, RHB, comes to the crease
8.3 Asad Javed to Keyur Patel, OUT! LOUD SHOUT FOR LBW AND GIVEN! It's all falling apart for Indiska. Back of a length on the middle and off, late into the shot as he misses, raps on the pad and he's a goner.

8.2 Asad Javed to Keyur Patel, full delivery on the off-stump, Keyur looks to hoick but gets the inside edge towards deep backward square-leg, they decide to come back for a brace, throw wasn't great as there was a huge mix-up.
8.1 Asad Javed to Keyur Patel, excellent slower one, dips a full delivery on the outside off, Keyur too early into the shot and misses.
Asad Javed is back into the attack

11 runs off the eighth over as Thobhani switched gears and went after the bowler. However, in a bid to further increase the scoring rate and to keep up with the required rate, he perished. Poor from the Indiska batters and Thobhani lacked support all along.
