That brings us to the end of Match 7. But stay tuned as these teams will be back out in a while to fight it out again. 

This is Ulhas taking your leave on behalf of my colleague, Karthik, and requesting everybody to stay home and enjoy the coverage of all the matches on Sportskeeda! Goodbye! 

18:22 IST:- Wew. An extremely chaotic game has come to an end with First Contact ending up on the winning side. The batsmen pretty much stopped running after being penalized twice. 

MSTV were off to the worst start imaginable, with their skipper Abhishek Chandrashekar edging the first delivery straight to the slip cordon. Deepak Prakash, the only batsman who looked comfortable last evening, rebuilt the innings with Imran Khan as they put on a 43-run second wicket partnership. A big 16-run 3rd over boosted their innings and they raced away to 40 in 4 overs. 

Amarkhail was brought into the attack and he provided the breakthrough which completely stopped MTSV in their tracks. He dismissed Deepak Prakash for 24, and the batsmen who followed couldn't make an impact. Imran Khan tried his best with a run-a-ball 23 but perished trying to up the ante. FCT then managed to set tight fields and keep the batsmen at bay, eventually winning by 15 runs.

FCT produced a strong combined bowling effort, with all the bowlers bar Zaki Zakhil finishing with an economy less than 9. They came out with a set plan and executed it to perfection. Just 5 extras were conceded in the innings. The pressure built with a huge amount of dot balls showed on the MTSV batsmen as they tried to scrape through runs from everywhere. This, and other factors(penalty runs) as well, resulted in a handful of run-outs, 3 to be precise and this pretty much killed the game for MTSV.

Lots of confusion at the end! Penalty runs everywhere. All we have for you right now is that FCT has won the game by 15 runs! The score of FCT has been adjusted to 91/2.

9.6 Zaki Zakhil to Azizgul Khalil, slow full-toss, Azizul miscues it to extra-cover for a single. The batsmen look to take an extra run following the missed throw from Zaki but Azizul gets stranded half-way down the pitch. The keeper completes an easy run-out as FCT wrap up a 15-run win.
9.5 Zaki Zakhil to Samjit Chandran, full delivery, Samjit drives it to long-on for a single.
9.4 Zaki Zakhil to Samjit Chandran, full and down the leg-side, Samjit misses the flick and the ball deflects off the pad to the keeper. No run.
9.3 Zaki Zakhil to Azizgul Khalil, full delivery, Azizul swings and edges it to third-man. Hafiz looks to go back for a second run but Azizul sends him back. The call comes too late as the keeper whips off the bails.
9.2 Zaki Zakhil to Azizgul Khalil, length delivery, Azizul swings it to deep backward square for two runs. 
9.1 Zaki Zakhil to Faizan Farooq, short of a length delivery, Faizan slaps it to extra-cover where there is a mis-field. Faizan looks to go back for the second run but the hesitation costs him as FCT complete a run-out!
Lovely hard length bowling by skipper Sharif Safi and he concedes just 5 off the 9th over! It's down to 15 runs off the last over. Pressure on MTSV!

Zaki Zakhil to bowl the last over. Can he defend the target?
