MU Dons 148/2 (10 ov)
Medical University Sofia 110/5 (10 ov)
MU Dons won by 38 runs.
MU Dons have won the match by 38 runs and cement a spot in the finals!

The Medical University Sofia's run chase never seemed to get going, with a wicket falling early in the innings. Kevin D'Souza looked to be in fine touch but an error of judgement and a brilliant throw by the keeper sent him packing as well. They were almost out of the hunt after that, with Bipin Gattapur getting stumped for a duck, consuming 5 deliveries in the process as well. Omar Rasool was the only ray of hope, scoring 41(26) but eventually got out trying to keep up with the monumental required run rate. None of the other batsmen really got going. 

A clinical bowling display by the MU Dons which consisted of Rohan Patel picking up two crucial wickets while skipper Kiran Dasan and Borislav Metodi chipped in with a wicket each. In the end, the target proved to be too mighty for this MUS side, which was not at its usual best today. The MUS will go on to play in the third place game while the MU Dons advance to the finals. 

All roads now lead to a delightful final between the MU Dons and the Indo-Bulgarian CC which promises to be an excellent contest to wrap up the tournament. Do join us for the third-place match as well as the grand final later on today. Well then, that brings an end to our coverage of this match. This is me, Maanas Upadhyay, and my partner, Sameer Deodhar, singing off. Stay safe!
