Skyways win by 6 wickets!

That is it from this game between Barcelona Gladiators and Skyways in the European Cricket Series Barcelona T10. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for the latest updates. This is me, Abhinav & my colleagues, Farzan & Pratyush signing off. Take care and thank you!
What an astounding win for Skyways, who win their FIRST match in the ECS, by pulling off an astounding 6-wicket win over the Barcelona Gladiators. The star of the show for them was undoubtedly Adeel Arif, who single-handedly yanked this game off the hands of the opposition, with an unbelievable 83* off just 27 balls, studded with 9 fours & 7 massive sixes, while Rabi Asif was the only other batsman to get into double digits for Skyways, scoring 12 runs from 7 balls, but there was precious little else from the other batsmen.

For the Barcelona Gladiators, Shahid Nazir was the pick of the bowlers, with bowling figures of 1/2 in 1.2 overs with an astounding wicket-maiden first over, which had seemed to close this game out in favour of the Barcelona Gladiators, with Babar Basharat also taking a wicket and ending with figures of 1/15 in his 2 overs, Ali Raza had 1/14 in his 1 over of bowling, while Mohammad Umar ended up with the other wicket and had 1/31 in 2 overs. But it was that fateful 8th over of this innings bowled by Tanzeer Ur Rahman which totally swung this game out in favour of Skyways with 36 runs from it and that was that.

It's been a long time coming for Skyways, who were winless in the ECS and had the ignominy of being dismissed for 34 in their previous game, but they've come back splendidly to recover & win an absolute heart-stopper of a game.

8.3 Shahid Nazir to Awais Waleed, WHAT A BIZARRE WAY TO GET THE VICTORY! That's the ECS for everybody! Pitched outside the 22 yards, that's a no ball and the batsmen sneak a single as well. A shame that the winning runs didn't come from Arif's bat, but what a knock that was!

Skyways win by 6 wickets! Their first win of the tournament!
8.2 Shahid Nazir to Awais Waleed, good length delivery outside off stump, Waleed backs away and slashes at it but fails to make contact

8.1 Shahid Nazir to Awais Waleed, good length delivery outside off stump, Awais swings and misses
Bloody hell, Adeel Arif has single-handedly swung this over and game in favour of the Skyways, with 36 RUNS off the over and after 8 overs, they are 108/4 and need just 3 runs from 2 overs. Shahid Nazir has to bowl another brilliant over like his previous one to keep this game alive somehow.
