Marsta CC won by 7 wickets
Marsta CC win by 7 wickets...
...with 11 balls to spare. Hamid Mehmood's 48 off 27 takes his team home comfortably in the end. It looked like one of those tricky targets where a few wickets could completely change the complexion of the match. Some intelligent batting from Hamid Mehmood and then, Sweed Ullah, gives them a fairly easy win to get give Marsta the 2 points from this game. 

Khalen Anwar bowled a couple of tight overs early in the innings to pick up 2 wickets while only giving away the 5 runs, All of that comes to nothing, as Varmdo begin their first campaign with a defeat. This win will propel Marsta towards the top of the table and set up the tournament really well going forward.

That's it for this game, from my colleague, Kartik Iyer, and myself, Habil Ahmed. We've enjoyed bringing the game to you, and we hope you've had a great time as well. Cheers!
