The MTV Stallions have wrapped up things in a commanding fashion, winning this game by a hefty 28-run margin. 

To be brutally honest, SCE were never really in the game after getting off to a sluggish start. When they finally tried to enforce things, they lost wickets in a heap and found themselves teetering at 23/3 after four overs. By then, the major damage had been inflicted and only a miracle could revitalize them.

All credit to the Stallions' bowling line-up, though. They kept the pressure building from both ends and didn't offer any sort of reprieves to the opposition. B Orya, in particular, was magnificent for his stellar spell of 3 for 8. The likes of Arabzai also did their best to keep the carnage at bay. A word for the Stallions' fielding, too. Although there were some lapses in concentration and some sloppy ground fielding, MTV were excellent when it came to gobbling up catches. A special mention of that acrobatic diving effort to ensnare a stunner in the penultimate over of the game. 

That's that from Sportskeeda's live coverage of Match 11 of the European Cricket League 2020. On behalf of me, Momin, and my fellow commentator, Abhinav, goodbye!
