Scorecard
Padova with their first win then and they have managed to bounce back after consecutive losses yesterday. Not just a win but one by 44 runs, which is quite a healthy margin and this will boost their confidence as well, as they look to redeem themselves and stay in contention for a finish in the top four. Fair to say that they batted RCP out of the game when they scored 167 and it was too much of an ask for their opponents to chase it down in the end. 

RPC started well and till the first four overs, it certainly looked like they were in the game but they just could not score as many as they needed to, loosing wickets on their way as well and they fell way short of the target. A brave effort but not good enough to get them past the line as they crash to their second defeat in three games now. Their openers got starts but none of them could convert it to a big score which would have helped their cause. Veerasingha remaining unbeaten on 41 from 17 in the end which was an entertaining knock but it was never going to be enough. 

A good bowling effort from Padova to defend their total as they did not allow RCP to get close to the target, winning comfortably and convincingly in the end to start the day with a big win. Abbas Ghulam being the pick of the bowlers with two wickets as others chipped in as well in a must-win encounter for them. This victory will give them a whole new level of confidence for sure as they look to get their campaign back on track and they will now want to carry forward this new found momentum further in the tournament! 
Padova winning this game by 44 runs in the end, a good margin to get their first win of the tournament, much-needed for them and this performance will surely lift their spirits. A brave fight from RPC but falling way short in the end. Finishing with 123 in the end and they had way to many to get in the end that threw then apart!

Well bowled from Akash Handun this and Padova won't mind the odd boundaries and the singles. They are inching closer to their first win of the tournament now and RPC have way too much left for the end and it seems nearly impossible for them to pull this off from here!
