Barcelona Gladiators win by 37 runs!

This has been Abhinav Kumar and my colleague Dwijesh Reddy as we take your leave for the moment. Stay tuned for more action coming up soon!
This is as comprehensive a defeat as there could be for Skyways, as they end their innings quite tamely at 106/3 after 10 overs & the Gladiators win by a big margin of 37 runs. For the Skyways, Sharoon Bashir top-scored with 33(25), while the captain Adeel Shahzad scored 28(21), with Hamad Khalid scoring 16(11) and Adeel Arif scoring 15(6) towards the end. Nobody though played an innings that could lead the runchase with authority. The Gladiators bowlers bowled quite well & bowled restrictive lines, with the pick of the Gladiators bowlers being Arslan Yousaf, who got 1/12 from his 2 overs, while Zahid Akbar picked up a wicket in the final over of the game to get figures of 1/14 in 1 over. Amongst other bowlers, Tanzeer Ur Rehman bowled quite well & got 0/17 from 2 overs & the other bowlers too contributed towards cutting down the scoring rate & tightening the rope on the Skyways batsmen. The innings from Shahid Nazir, in the end, proved to be the single point of difference between the two sides in this game.
Over: 10 | Summary: 6 1 W 6 0 1 Bowler: Zahid Akbar Score: 106/3
9.6 Zahid Akbar to Adeel Arif, DROPPED! A full ball bowled outside off, Arif lifts it towards the man at covers, who drops it but it doesn't make a difference as Barcelona Gladiators beat Skyways by 37 runs!
9.5 Zahid Akbar to Adeel Arif, a full ball turning into the batsman, Arif makes a meal of it and misses!
9.4 Zahid Akbar to Adeel Arif, a full ball bowled outside off, Arif lifts it over the long-off fielder for a huge SIX!
That's a really nicely judged catch there from the fielder & Zahid Akbar has sent back the Skyways captain Adeel Shahzad. Babar Ali walks into bat, with only 3 balls to go in the innings.
9.3 Zahid Akbar to Adeel Shahzad, WICKET! A full ball on the stumps, Shahzad tries to clear the deep midwicket fielder, who takes a nice catch at the end of the boundary!
9.2 Zahid Akbar to Adeel Arif, a full ball on the stumps, Arif smacks it down the ground for a single
9.1 Zahid Akbar to Adeel Arif, a length ball bowled outside off, Arif waits for it and smack it over cow-corner for a maximum!
Only 9 runs come from the 9th over & Skyways are 92/2 and need 52 from the last over. The game is all but over & Zahid Akbar will be bowling the last over of this match now.
