So, that is it from me, Karthik Raj and my co-commentator Lavil Saldanha. Do join Sportskeeda's coverage of the final match of the day between Bologna and Baracca Prato at 8.00 PM IST
That is it!! Pianoro have sealed a 44-run victory against Bologna. They were always going to win after posting 176/1 and it turned out to be the case too. Pianoro got off to the best possible start by removing the dangerous Bologna skipper Malik Sarfraz for a duck. Thereafter, Muhammad Adnan launched into Charles Fernando's second over that saw a mammoth 35 runs to give some hope to Bologna. However, Pianoro skipper Arslan Rana came into the attack and got the better of Adnan before dismissing Faizan Hussain also produced a few lusty blows. Opener Suresh Kolli started to find the boundary after a sedate start but it proved to be too little too late. He was also dismissed by Aravinth Suresh in the eighth over. In the end, Babar Ghafar cracked the ball around to finish with 35 off 14 balls which could turn out to be crucial for semi-final qualification. 
9.6 Waleed Rana to Jastinder Singh, SINGLE! PIANORO WIN! Full length delivery on the line of the off stump, Singh hits the ball away to deep midwicket but gets a single. Not enough for BCC as Pianoro win the match by 44 runs

Four boundaries and 18 runs off that penultimate over. It is now down to 53 runs off the last six balls which is an impossible task.
