Crusaders win by 5 wickets and of the last ball

What. A. Match. An absolutely incredible final over for all the cricket fans. Even though things were spiraling down for the Crusaders, Thakur, who was mightly struggling at 16 of 17, took a bad full-toss and departed it into the fences to put his team back onto the pedestal. 

It was Gopal Thakur who easily emerged as the hero of the game with his game-changing knock of 23 of 19 deliveries. Played under tremendous pressure, his innings would certainly please his team. 

On the bowling front, all the five bowlers took a wicket each and bowled very economically to take the match until the final over. They surely would be disappointed, but they stuck to their guns and bought the batsmen under the pressure. 

A terrific game dominated by some exceptional bowling by players from both teams. Probably the best game of the tournament so far (Okay, that's just my personal inclination towards low-scoring thrillers). Both the Crusaders and Overseas will be looking forward to sorting out their flaws and utilize their best players in a much better way in the upcoming games. 

That brings an end to our coverage of the game. Stay tuned to Sportkeeda for the latest news and match commentaries from games all across the globe. This is my colleague, Dwijesh Reddy, and I, Arpit Shrivastava signing off. Stay safe!
