Royal Roma CC beat Padova CC by 4 wickets

This was a jail break for Royal Roma CC considering how they chased down the total. Chasing the total of 108 runs, they lost 2 wickets in the first over and exposed their soft underbelly- their middle order. Anil Kumar and Umar Shahzad joined forces and struck the ball really well and counter attacked the Padova CC bowlers. They strung a successful partnership of 52 runs among them.

Anil Kumar was dismissed soon after the partnership crossed 50 runs. Umar Shahzad had an extended stay at the crease, remaining unbeaten till the end, but had a frequent change of partners at the other end. Rajwinder Singh came in the final few over and finished off the match with a huge hit as Royal Roma finished on 112/6 after 10 overs, 4 runs more than the target needed to chase down.

Padova CC had their bowlers going for plenty of runs through out the match. Their bowlers kept recurring the chances for their side, but their fielding unit let hem down every now and then. Their captain, Nuwan Sameera was the pick of the bowlers as he snapped up 2 wickets in the powerplay and also stuck with the important wicket of Anil Kumar

8.4 Akash Handun to Umar Shahzad, full-length in the slot and Umar latches onto it and smashes it to deep mid-wicket boundary! That's a very important boundary! Gets the ball full and straight and gets the ball running to the ropes and gets it down to 10 runs needed in 8 balls

8.1 Akash Handun to Shoiab Awan, full-length on the stumps, the batsman tried to swing hard and missed it! That looked plumb as the umpire raises his finger for a lbw!

Nuwan Sameera gets the wicket of Anil Kumar in the over, but that doesn't seem to have bother RRCC as they are on 83/4 after 7 overs. Umar Shehzad stands like a pillar between the two sides and Padova CC will hope to get his wicket to win the match from here on
