Fresh Tropical 173/1 (10 ov)
Milan Cricket Club 83/5 (10 ov)
Fresh Tropical won by 90 runs.
Player of the match: Muhammad Imran
A comprehensive win for Fresh Tropical, who book their place in the next phase of the tournament. Milan Cricket Club never really turned up for this encounter, not even attempting to pull of an upset. Whatever spirit was left in their players before this match, was broken by Muhammad Imran. The right-hander tonked an unbeaten 97 of 30 balls to set a mammoth target of 174 runs. Amir Sharif's unbeaten 23 ball 44 provided the platform against a tame MCC bowling line up.

There was barely any intent shown by the Fresh Tropical batsmen when they came out for the chase too. Pramod Sudida's 21 ball 21, alonside Mian Abdul Qasood's firepower knock of 39, were the only double digit scores in their innings. Zain Naqvi, Bilal Hameed and Muhammad Imran, were all economical and bagged a wicket each for Fresh Tropicals.

A dead-rubber contest if there ever was one! One would have liked to see Milan CC go for it and try to put Fresh Tropical under pressure, but they had accepted defeat before the game started. Muhammad Imran was undoubtedly the man of the match, with his power packed all round performance. Fresh Tropical proved why they are regarded as one of the top teams in the tournament and will be hoping to go all way.

That's it for now though! The ECS action continues on the other side.

The formalities are over for Milan Cricket Club, who have been outplayed in all departments throughout this series. The target of 174 was never going to be easy, and they have failed to reach even half of that score. All credits to Fresh Tropical who have comprehensively clinched victory and better yet have made qualifying to the next stage easier after this performance. Fresh Tropical win by 90 runs.

A couple of handsome shots from Kaushik Bhuva to pick up a few runs, but everything is in vain, as even mathematically now, Milan Cricket Club are out of the contest. Bhuva couldn't hold onto his wicket either, but this time thanks to a good throw from the keeper at the non strikers end to get rid of Bhuva.
