Royal Roma CC beat Padova CC by 72 runs!

Splendid bowling effort from Royal Roma CC here, they have not only managed to stop the onslaught from Nuwan Sameera earlier on, they've been able to contain the rest of the batsman and never allowed to get on top of them.

Royal Roma CC's bowling proved too much for the batsman as none of them looked to get in control of the innings or the chase. They kept losing wickets but it was the Royal Roma's bowling which saw their team through.

Earlier on at the start of the chase, Nuwan Sameera looked threatening, scored some brilliant shots in the powerplay and took on the attack against the opposition. It was a treat to the eyes with the way Nuwan played his shots, there was one straight drive, lofted over the inner ring, showed his brilliance. Rush of blood from Nuwan as he looked to continue the onslaught instead of being smart by containing his wicket perishes trying to pull one away. There's not much to talk about the rest of the Padova CC batting as none of the other batsman looked to take on the bowling to chase this total down after that blistering start from Nuwan.

Royal Roma have been brilliant with the ball as well, their nagging line and length's proved to be too much. Padova CC kept losing wickets, they have failed to strike those crucial boundaries off every over that was needed. For Royal Roma it is Shoiab Awan been the pick of the bowler and finishes with 4-3 in the end Umar, Dharamvir, Muneeb pick up wicket a piece to end the misery for Padova CC.

A comprehensive victory for Royal Roma CC in the end, thanks to some brilliant hitting earlier on from Hassan Mubashar who set the tone for the match and the bowlers did their job by taking wickets up front and pegged back the chase. There it is, Royal Roma win their first match and mark their points on the points table.

Hassan Mubashar has been adjudged the Man of the Match for a well played knock!
