That brings an end to our coverage of this exciting ECS contest. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for live commentaries as well as the latest news. This is me, Avik Bose and my colleague, Dwijesh Reddy, signing off.  
Winning the toss and electing to BAT first, RSCC did not get the start they would have wished for. Losing both the openers, they were reeling with 16/4 after 4 overs. They never really got going and lost wickets at regular intervals. The innings had no rhythm and the batsmen lacked proper intent. Kishitij Patel scored 10 off 8 balls and Gurpreet Singh contributed an unbeaten 8 of 11 balls at the depth. No other batsmen clicked or touched the double-figure mark even. From the bowling department, Nawazish Ali and Ibrar Hussain broke the backbone of the batting lineup taking 3 wickets each while skipper Adeel and Dhiman struck a blow each ensuring no real flow to the batting innings. The batting scorecard made a sorry reading as RSCC got bundled out for 50 from 9.3 overs.
Chasing 51 runs off 60 balls, it never really felt difficult for the PMCC batsmen as they dashed onto 30/1 from their first 3 powerplay overs. But losing 3 wickets in quick succession, there were some butterflies in the stomach for the PMCC batsmen, but Asjad Butt's unbeaten 18 off 13 balls and Ibrar Hussain's steady unbeaten knock of 5 from 7 balls ensured that PMCC reached home with a margin of balls to spare. Opener Prince Dhiman also contributed 18 off 12 balls at the beginning of the chase. For RSCC, Mahyavanshi bowled exceptionally well taking 3 wickets for just 3 runs from his 2 overs while skipper Ishan Patel also took 1 scalp. But the runs on the board were never really close to being enough for them to put up a fight and PMCC batsmen reached 54/4 from 7.1 overs with 17 balls to spare.

PMCC thus complete a resounding performance and win the match by 6 wickets while recording their 1st victory of the tournament.

Pressure released and the momentum has just shifted towards the chasing team. Both the batsmen are taking their time and hitting balls on their merit. It's done and dusted more or less by now.
