Belgium 114/8 in 10 overs lose to Norway by 31 runs.

It is the first loss for Belgium and the first win for Norway. And the Norwegians open their account in style by crushing Belgium by 31 runs. A tall chase Belgium started poorly as they were reduced to just 15/3 after Powerplay. The first three overs of Belgium's chase pretty much sealed the fate of the match. Belgium could not recover from the poor start as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. In chase of 146 there were as many as four ducks and two scores in single digits. Those numbers highlight how tough it was for the Belgium batters in the chase. Only Murd Ekrami played an innings of some substance as played an entertaining knock of 32 from 9 deliveries. But his efforts arrived too late.  The Norway bowlers made the most of the poor show from the Belgium batters. Vinay Ravi did the early damage as he picked 2 wickets. Hayatullah Niazi bowled a splendid spell of 3/14 from his 2 overs. His 3 wickets coming in just one over. 

Early in the match, the Norwegians hit 8 fours and 11 sixes in 10 overs. Thanks to the sensational hitting from the Norway batters, the team posted 145 from 10 overs with the loss of just 3 wickets. Opener Khizer Ahmed gave Norway a flying start as he scored a blistering 34 from 17 balls. But the star of the show for Norway was Walid Ghauri who blasted 57 from just 25 balls. Tafseer Ali also played an entertaining cameo of 16 from 8 deliveries. Belgium bowlers struggled right through the course of the innings. As many as 8 bowlers were used to bowl the full quota of 10 overs. That in itself highlights how difficult it was for them to bowl against the Norwegians.
