Niazi and Ahmed did manage to find the boundaries towards the end but a lot more was needed for Norway. Towards the end, it was a comfortable victory for Sweden and they move on to play the second qualifier.
Things just took a turn for worse for Norway as they lost another set batter Ahmed just a couple of balls later after Walid. The domino effect came in after that as wickets just kept tumbling for Norway one after another. The scoring rate also started to dip down for them.
The duo as the overs progressed got set and found the maximums. They were keeping the required run rate in check and keeping their side in their contest. Sweden were patient and a wicket in the form of Walid finally came for them post the halfway mark.
Norway coming in to chase 147 did not have the best start as they lost their skipper Raza right on ball one. Walid and Ahmed batting along started to stitch a partnership for Norway. However, a lot was needed to be done by them to stay in contention.
GAME SET MATCH!! Sweden stays alive in this contest, Norway after making a come back being down 0-3 at the start but lose it here. Norway would be gutted as their campaign now comes to a close.
