That would be that from the coverage of this match! This is Prakhar Sachdeo and on behalf of my fellow commentator Sooryanarayanan Sesha, it is time to say goodbye! But do stay logged on to Sportskeeda for all the live commentary and latest scores from cricket action all around the globe.
And with that dropped catch SG Hamlen get 2 runs and cruise to a comfortable 7-wicket win. The total of 70 was never going to trouble SG Hamlen. But there was a slight panic in the chase as Sadam Sherzad picked two wickets in one over. But Saran Kannan and Mudassar Iqbal made identical scores of 21 to steady the chase. First Contact bowlers were poor as they bowled too many extras and gave too many runs in the Powerplay overs to help Hamlen get off to a decent start in a relatively easy chase. 

Earlier, First Contact ended with 70/5 only from 10 overs. It was not a convincing total at all by any stretch of the imagination. The credit went to SG Hameln bowlers. The bowlers were precise and accurate in their lines and lengths right from the word go. The bowling unit had restricted the batting side to just 10/0 in the first three overs of the Powerplay not conceding a single boundary. The batting pair of Zahir Zakhil and Mohamad Safi helped to revive the innings a bit as Zakhil scored 21 from 24 balls and Safi scored 16 from just 9 deliveries. But once Zakhil and Safi departed the scene, the other batters struggled too. Safi Rahman was the pick of the bowlers for SG Hamlen as he bowled an impressive spell of 2/8 in his 2 overs. Mudassar Iqbal, Rizwan Babar and Romal Barakzai picked up a wicket each. 
8.3 Abdulrahman Amarkhail to Mudassar Iqbal, DROPPED! Ah, that sums up this outing for First Contact! Width on offer outside off, Iqbal throws himself to a cut over point and the outfielder settles and crouches before allowing the ball to spill through his fingertips. The batters cross over and it has been that kind of outing for First Contact. Yet another sorry performance from their end but it's four on the trot now for SG Hameln! They win by 7 wickets with 9 deliveries to spare!
8.2 Abdulrahman Amarkhail to Mudassar Iqbal, outside off, pushes at it but he fails to get bat on ball again!
8.2 Abdulrahman Amarkhail to Mudassar Iqbal, WIDE! Slightly short but well outside the tramline, Iqbal fails to reach out for the ball and the umpire has his arms outstretched! Scores are level!
8.1 Abdulrahman Amarkhail to Mudassar Iqbal, keeps it away from the batter on a length, Iqbal reaches out for a slice through point but he fails to make contact!
Nine runs from the over. Hamlen now need only 2 more runs to win the match! Mere formalities remain.

7.6 Zaki Zakhil to Chamila Bandara, full outside off, pushed straight to the man at cover and that will be a dot ball! Just 2 runs away now are SG Hameln!
7.5 Zaki Zakhil to Mudassar Iqbal, heaves a length delivery towards mid-wicket and crosses over 
7.4 Zaki Zakhil to Chamila Bandara, angling into the pads on a length, clipped towards fine leg for a single
7.3 Zaki Zakhil to Chamila Bandara, on a length outside off, pushed through point and into the deep and they run a brace as the fielder tidies up
7.2 Zaki Zakhil to Chamila Bandara, FOUR! STREAKY BUT THEY WON'T MIND! Slightly short at the stumps, Bandara pulls and gets a top-edge that flies over third man and into the ropes through the vacant real estate
7.1 Zaki Zakhil to Mudassar Iqbal, full around off-stump, walks down and drives down to long off for a single
Zaki Zakhil to bowl. 
Just six runs from the over. Sadam Sherzad finishes with impressive figures 2/10 from his 2 overs. He picked the two wickets in his first over. He would have loved a couple of wickets in this over too, but that was not to be as now SG Hamlen only need 11 more runs to win.

6.6 Sadam Sherzad to Mudassar Iqbal, FOUR! Lovely timing and placement! Premeditates the line and walks across his stumps, he plants his front foot forward before picking it up and over the vacant backward square leg region for a boundary!
6.5 Sadam Sherzad to Chamila Bandara, full and straight on off-stump, presents a straight bat and drives it down the ground past the bowler for a single to open his account
6.4 Sadam Sherzad to Chamila Bandara, swipes at a length delivery outside off and he fails to connect yet again!
