Sparta 1888 beat SV Kampong Cricket by 4 runs in a nail biting game!

That Ladies and Gentlemen, brings us to the end of a nail biting contest between Sv Kampong Cricket and Sparta 1888 as the latter beat the former by 4 runs. The chase started off slowly as the KAM batsmen could not mint runs quick off the first two overs scoring just 12 runs off the first two overs. When we thought that the openers have set their eye in, Alphonse lost his wicket in the third over of the game. Later, Usman Malik held one end for his team and started dealing in boundaries, he kept going big at will and scored vital 18 runs for his team and seemed to be in the groove.

Just when everyone thought everything was going Kampong's way a terrible collapse followed as the chasing team lost 4 wickets in very quick succession putting the team in shackles and they were 5 down for 51 after 8 overs leaving 37 runs to win of the final two overs. The lower middle order batsmen Raza Anis and Bilal Saleem struck few good boundaries as the latter top scored for his team with 22 runs. Few good hits of the final over made the bowler rethink his plans as Kampong fell 4 runs short of a fantastic victory.

Faisal Iqbal was the pick of the bowlers, although he picked a single wicket, he kept things really tight and gave away just 10 runs in his spell. Ahmad and Hoornweg picked a wicket each and were a important part of the clinical victory. 

That is it from us here at Sportskeeda, viewers. We hope you enjoyed our coverage of the game. do join us for the games later today. Till then, this is Manoj Sarma and my partner Maanas Upadhyay signing off. Stay Safe!
9.6 M Latif to B Saleem, FOUR! Length ball on the off stump, the batsman goes for the big heave across the line, gets the thick outside edge that flies over the third man fielder for a boundary! That will wrap things up here as Sparta Cricket 1888 just about manage to edge past the SV Kampong Cricket by a fine margin of 3 runs! What a match we have witnessed here! Went right down the wire!
9.5 M Latif to B Saleem, no run, OH MY! What an anti-climatic finish this is turning out to be! Yorker fired in just inside the wide line, the batsman swings wildly but cannot get bat on ball. The ball goes on to the keeper but the batsmen make no attempt to take the single. They needed to run just to have a chance of getting the game to the Golden Ball! That will end proceedings unless Latif bowls an extra. 
9.4 M Latif to B Saleem, SIX! Full ball on the off stump, the batsman gets down on one knee and smokes that straight over the bowler's head for a huge maximum! 8 runs needed off 2 balls now! They need one more big hit to seal the game off. Can they do it??
9.3 M Latif to R Anis, yorker on the leg stump, the batsman moves away and drills that to long on for just a single. 14 runs in 3 deliveries is the equation! The CHASE IS ON!
9.2 M Latif to B Saleem, full ball on the leg stump, the batsman flicks that to deep mid-wicket for a single. 15 required in 4 balls now!
9.1 M Latif to B Saleem, SIX! What a way to begin the last over! Length ball on the off stump, the batsman rocks back and whacks that over long on for a huge maximum! Breathes life into this contest! SMOKED! That one has been smoked into the orion. 16 required of 5 balls!
SV Kampong Cricket are 66/5  after the penultimate over of the game. Need 22 runs of the final over.

The Kampongs have left too many to chase in the end and that probably is CURTAINS for the batting team. Will there be a twist in the tale?
8.6 M Hoornweg to R Anis, full ball on the leg stump, the batsman flicks that to backward square leg for a couple of runs to finish off the over. 22 required of the final over.
8.5 M Hoornweg to R Anis, DROPPED! full ball on the off stump, the batsman slices that in the air towards point, where the fielder does not judge it correctly and in the end, cannot hold onto it while diving. The fielder is on the ground clutching his knee and is writhing in pain. Seems like he twisted his knee and needs to be helped out of the field. Lays on the ground beyond the boundary rope and is getting the attention of the medics. A substitute fielder is preparing himself to replace but the match-referee reckons that since that person's name is not on the team sheets submitted earlier, the replacement is stopped from entering. So the Spartans will have only 10 players on the field. 
8.4 M Hoornweg to R Anis, FOUR! length ball on the leg stump, the batsman charges down the track and flicks that handsomely towards deep backward square leg fora boundary! A good shot as the batsmen produce the second boundary over of the game. Is it too late now?
8.4 M Hoornweg to R Anis, WIDE ball outside off, sprays the length ball way outside off and the umpire gets to stretch his arms. 
8.3 M Hoornweg to B Saleem, full ball on the off stump, the batsman drills that to long on for a single.
8.2 M Hoornweg to B Saleem, FOUR! Top Shot! Full ball on the off stump, the batsman effortlessly whips that towards the cow corner region for a boundary! That is a boundary after quite a while. They can only reduce the margin of loss now. 
8.1 M Hoornweg to R Anis, length ball on the off stump, the batsman pulls that towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
SV Kampong Cricket are 51/5 after 8 overs. Need 37  runs in 12 balls at 18.5 RPO

Is that curtains for the batting team. Two RUN-OUTS in that over and things have turned sour for KAM as they have left one too many left to chase.
7.6 M Ahmad to R Anis, length ball on the leg stump pushed to long on for a single.
7.5 M Ahmad to R Anis, no run, full toss on the off stump, the batsman slaps that back to the bowler, who does well to get a hand on it and prevents any run from being conceded,
7.4 M Ahmad to R Anis, OUT! Another RUN-OUT! Would you believe it! low full toss on the off stump, the batsman smacks that towards long on for a single. The batsmen take off for the suicidal second and the fielder fires in a brilliant throw, which the bowler collects easy and dislodges the bails. Another batsman walks back to the pavilion! TERRIBLE! Terrible running this.
7.3 M Ahmad to F Bashir, length ball on the off stump chipped to cover for a quick single.
