Scorecard
20 overs of cricket, yet nothing to separate the two sides and then, in the golden ball, it's the Asian Latina CC that came out to hold their nerves and clinch this battle in the most thrilling way possible ever! Roma CC started off so well and they cruising at one point, where none would have imagined this game to go down the way it did. High intensity game and that run-out of the Roma skipper, Prabath, at the very end. made all the difference in this contest. So close and yet so far for them, for what would have been the highest successful run-chase ever in the history of ECS. 

Not to be so as Asian Latina CC getting past that scare somehow and managing to win the game in the end. An absolute run-feast from either teams, Amandeep with the hundred for ALC in their first innings, helping them get to a massive total. Dinidu Marage and skipper Prabath with the bat for Roma CC, both getting to half-centuries that brought them so close to winning this game, but to no avail in the end. Unfortunate for them to not have gotten past the line and this will certainly take some time for them to digest, but such is the nature of this game. All they can and should do is look to move on as quickly as they can. 

Either side did not deserve to lose this game but in the end, there has to be one winner and that, today, was Asian Latina CC. Not the ideal way in which they would have liked to get that result though, after having posted a big total. But nevertheless, a win is still a win and they will certainly take it, no matter how it came! 

Lots of drama already with this part of the series only getting started. Two hundreds from two players already in as many games, one tie and a golden ball finish and this is the kind of entertainment you expect from the ECS as well. We would certainly like to witness many more of such games that go right down the wire! 
Oh my! What a finish we have had to this game. Asian Latina surviving the scare and they have come out to win this game from nowhere. Joy all around and you have to feel for Roma as well here, so close and yet so far!! All in all, it's been a run feast and a terrific game of cricket, some great drama and this has been a memorable game indeed!
(Golden Ball) H. Dhindsa to N. Kalansuriya, ASIAN LATINA WIN!!! Full toss on the line of the off stump, Kalansuriya hits the ball down the ground and the pair run a single, Kalansuriya looked to run for the second but fails to make it in time. A thriller here in Rome as Asian Latina CC win the match in Golden Ball
Time for Golden ball then! 
What an epic run-chase this has been! Going right down the wire and a game of nerves this! Asian Latina getting the all important wicket of the Roma skipper and it could not have come at a better time! This game has ended in a tie!! Absolutely unbelievable and this has been an absolute thriller! This game is not over just yet! High level drama!!

9.6 C. Singh to P. Samarage, slower length delivery on the line of the off stump, Samrage taps the ball away on the offside, and the pair run across for a brace on that occasion. The game has tied as we head into a golden ball here
9.5 C. Singh to P. Ekneligoda, EKNELIGODA RUN OUT! ONE RUN TAKEN! Full length delivery outside the line of the off stump, Ekneligoda taps the ball away on the offside, runs across for a single but fails to make it back in time and is run out. 3 runs needed for a win now off the last ball 
9.4 C. Singh to P. Ekneligoda, full length delivery on the line of the leg stump, Ekneliugoda looked to play the ball on the legside but taps it back to the bowler, no run
9.3 C. Singh to P, Ekneligoda, SIX! Back of a length delivery outside the line of the off stump, Kalansuriya plays the ball off his backfoot on that occasion and sends the ball all the way over the ropes for a maximum
9.2 C. Singh to N. Kalansuriya, slower length delivery on the line of the off stump, the batsman misses the ball on that occasion and the keeper misses the ball too as the pair run a bye
9.2 C. Singh to N. Kalansuriya, another wide outside the off stump, crosses the tramline and the umpire stretches his arms yet again

9.1 C. Singh to P. Ekneligoda, full length delivery wide outside the off stump, Ekneligoda gets a bit of a top edge and the ball goes to deep point region for a single 
What the Roma batsmen have done so well is to keep finding those gaps and getting the boundaries to keep taking the pressure off. A decent over for Asian Latina this, but more importantly, Prabath on strike then as this one is going down the wire. A win for either sides? A super over? This is as exciting as it gets!
