This is it for today's ECS action but cricketing action continues across the world and you can be updated about the same if you stay tuned to Sportskeeda! My colleague Manas Upadhyay and I, Mohak Arora bid you a goodbye for now!
Moorburger TSV bow out of the Kiel leg of the European Cricket Series as both First Contact, Kieler HTC, and MTV Stallions SG Halemn qualify for the next stage of the tournament from Group A
FIRST CONTACT win the match by 9 WICKETS with 9 balls to spare after needing 47 runs from 30 balls at one stage in the run-chase!
Zahirshah Zakhil was the star of the innings as he scored 56 runs off 27 balls smacking 7 boundaries and a couple of maximums!
Thusitha Ratnayake's excellent figures of 1/6 from 1.3 overs only slowed down the run-chase as there was no stopping Zakhil the kind of form the southpaw is in today!
8.3 Rizwan Babar to Akbar Jabarkhel, length ball outside off swinging away, Jabarkhel hangs back, opens the face of the bat and guides it towards deep backward point for a single. That will wrap up proceedings here as First Contact clinically beat SG Hameln by 9 wickets!
8.2 Rizwan Babar to Zahirshah Zakhil, length ball on the off stump, Zakhil takes a couple of steps down the track and punches that down to long on for a single. Scores level
8.2 Rizwan Babar to Zahirshah Zakhil, length ball outside off angling away. Far too wide as reckoned by the umpire as he has a stretch
8.1 Rizwan Babar to Akbar Jabarkhel, length ball outside off swinging away, Jabarkhel watchfully guides that through the backward point region for a single. 
After giving away only 2 runs in his first over, Rizwan Babar was taken for a ride as he gave away 16 runs off his second over and First Contact need only 4 runs from the remaining 12 balls!

7.6 Rizwan Babar to Akbar Jabarkhel, very full ball on the middle stump, Akbar jams that out down the ground past the non-striker and they jog across for a single.
7.6 Rizwan Babar to Akbar Jabarkhel, length ball outside off, past the tramline and that is a WIDE
7.5 Rizwan Babar to Akbar Jabarkhel, full ball on the fourth stump line, Akbar watches that carefully and defends it firmly. Questionable tactics

7.3 Rizwan Babar to Zahirshah Zakhil, FOUR! SHOT! Full ball on the leg stump, poor delivery and Zakhil pounces on it! Gets his front foot out of the way and punishes that through the square leg region for a boundary!
A couple more runs and Zahirshah Zakhil brings up his HALF CENTURY!! What an innings this has been from the southpaw as Zakhil powered the run-chase after the shaky start to the First Contact innings!
7.3 Rizwan Babar to Zahirshah Zakhil, length ball outside off angling away, past the tramline and that is a WIDE
7.2 Rizwan Babar to Zahirshah Zakhil, 50 for Zakhil! Length ball outside off angling away, Zakhil reaches out for it and gets the outside edge down to deep third man for a couple of runs. 
7.1 Rizwan Babar to Zahirshah Zakhil, SIX! WHACKED! Full ball on the off stump, Zakhil waits for it, fetches it from there and absolutely muscles that over the mid-wicket region for a huge maximum!
ANOTHER MAXIMUMMMM! Zahirshah Zakhil sees the ball pitched in the slot and heaved it on the on-side and it's six more runs!
Rizwan Babar back into the attack!
