MSC Frankfurt win by 14 runs!
Nafees Buttar Ahmad 
masterclass in the end. Picks up 5 wickets for 23 runs in his two overs. Made all the difference at the start of the innings and reduced Darmstadt to 108/8 in their ten overs. They came a lot closer with that chase than they'd have expected in the end, having needed 49 runs in their last two overs. A fighting 19-ball 35 from Muhammad Ahmad right at the end would not prove to be enough for Darmstadt. It is MSC Frankfurt that become the first team into the final instead. 

Tune into the second semi-final between SG Hainhausen 1886 and Turk FC Hattersheim am Main in just a little bit to find out who MSC Frankfurt need to beat to win the championship. Until then, that's all from my colleague, Prashanth Satish, and myself, Habil Ahmed. Cheers!
9.6 Daud Muhammad to Umar Faroz, on the pads and the batsman manages only a single to square leg. That Means MSF enter the finals as they win by 14 runs
9.5 Daud Muhammad to Umar Faroz, overpitched in the slot and driven fiercely to the cover boundary.
9.4 Daud Muhammad to Badar Munir, takes a single to square leg. That's that then. Unless we see a lot of extras from here.
9.4 Daud Muhammad to Badar Munir, WIDE! Way outside off and batsman doesn't play
9.3 Daud Muhammad to Badar Munir, FOUR! Makes room and get four here off a good hit. Still alive, mathematically. But we're clutching at straws here, surely?
9.2 Daud Muhammad to Muhhamad Ahmad, OUT! Overpitched delivery and the batsman is caught at long-on after a terrific fielding effort.
9.1 Daud Muhammad to Muhhamad Ahmad, in the slot and the batsman strikes it to the deep midwicket fence for a boundary. Still alive somehow!
9.1 Daud Muhammad to Muhhamad Ahmad, WIDE! Well outside off and the batsman doesn't even bother to play that.
SOMEHOW Darmstadt are still mathematically in this game. They need 27 runs off the last six balls. Muhammad Ahmad would need to find his inner Carlos Brathwaite and a little more in order to stand a chance of making the finals of the tournament later this evening. 
8.6 Adel Khan to Umar Faroz, FOUR! Misfield by the fielder at the midwicket fence. A boundary for the new man, Faroz. 
8.6 Adel Khan to Z Khan, OUT ! Stumped off a wide ball, clever from the bowler and he gets himself  a wicket.
8.5 Adel Khan to Z Khan, SIX! Massive strike over the long-on boundary off an overpitched ball. That crosses the boundary by a long way. 
8.4 Adel Khan to Muhhamad Ahmad, Full delivery lofted to long on for a single
8.3 Adel Khan to Muhhamad Ahmad, FOUR! Short of a length and the batsman hits it to the deep cover boundary! Well played by the batsman.
8.2 Adel Khan to Muhhamad Ahmad, SIX! Massive strike over deep midwicket by the batsman. Terrific hit. All that does is reduce the margin they will eventually lose by, surely?
8.1 Adel Khan to Muhhamad Ahmad, misses one fired at the pads. DOT!
9 runs come from that over. Won't count for much given the situation Darmstadt find themselves in. They need 49 runs from the last 12 balls. More than four runs needed of every ball.
7.6 Daud Muhammad to Z Khan, on the pads, gets an inside edge and they get a brace
7.6 Daud Muhammad to Z Khan, WIDE down leg side.
