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, Sameer Deodhar, signing off.
Winning the toss and electing to bat first, SGH made a decent start to their innings. Skipper Mushabir and his partner Imran went off to a flyer. Slaughtered the bowling attack and kept the scoreboard ticking nicely. Mushabir scored a gallant 29 off 15 balls and Ali departed after scoring 24. TCP looked to be back in the hunt but Adil and Nasir made sure that the foot was not taken off the gas. Nasir chipped in with a useful cameo of 14 runs from 5 balls and took no prisoners. TCP lacked planning as well as execution in their bowling department. Bowlers were way above expensive. Pasha and Nasir took 2 and 1 scalps respectively but were no close to being economical. SGH put on a mammoth total of 136/3 from their 10 overs and even got 5 bonus penalty runs due to the slow bowling rate of the opposition.

Chasing an up-hill target of 142 from 60 balls, Habib departed quickly but skipper Nasar and Ahmad Khan carried on steadily. After 3 overs of the powerplay, TCP managed 43/1 and were looking on song to chase the total down. Nasar departed scoring 22 off 11 balls and Ahmad Khan went back to the pavilion after a brave knock of 30 from 16 balls. With 2 new batsmen on the crease, the task looked difficult and SGH pounced in at the right moment. Nasir Ahmad, Yasir Ahmed, and Ali Imran took 1 wicket each and made sure that the run flow was in control. There was a late flurry of boundaries from Akmal Ahmad but it was too little too late.TCP finally managed 127/5 from their 10 overs.

SGH thus win this thrilling contest by 14 runs and record their first win of the tournament.
