MTV Stallions beat SG Hameln by 66 runs!

Utter dominance from MTV Stallions with bat and ball in this fixture. After the first game where they only edged Hameln by a couple of runs, they were perhaps vulnerable to the upset that is still due in this competition.

However, the Stallions have made light work of Hameln with a terrific bowling performance. As many as eight bowlers were used but Hameln couldn't get past the 60-run mark, showing the depth within the Stallions side.

In a chase of 126, you need your top-order batsmen to fire but the duo of Ujwal Gadiraju and Basit Orya reduced them to 4 for 2 within two overs, which made it impossible for Hameln to catch up. The likes of Amarkhil and the man of the match, Faruq Arabzai were amongst the wickets as well as none of the Hameln batsmen were up for the task.

Apart from a gritty knock from Akila Rajapakshe, none of the batsmen could really get going as at no point in the game was a Stallions win under any sort of pressure or doubt. With that the Stallions strengthen their position at the top of the table although there's a lot to be done as far as Hameln is concerned. 

That's it for this game's coverage but it isn't over for the day by any means. Moorburger and First Contact are in action in about ten minutes time and you wouldn't want to miss out on this. But that's it for this game. This is Dwijesh along with my colleague Abhinav signing off. Take Care and Good Bye!
