That brings an end to our coverage of this exciting ECS contest. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for live commentaries as well as the latest news. This is me, Avik Bose and my colleague,Sameer Deodhar, signing off.

Losing the toss and being sent in to BAT first, SVW did not get their desired start. Getting both the openers dismissed within the 1st over, SVW's innings seemed to be in deep trouble. Runs dried up and bowlers were controlling the entire proceedings. Shahan Agha made a quick 10 of 5 balls accompanied by Fayaz Khan who was initially slow to get going but managed to contribute a useful 30 off 26 balls with a late flurry of boundaries. There was no rhythm to the batting innings thanks to the brilliant bowling performance of the LCO bowlers. Sher Miran took 2 wickets conceding 12 runs and Atif Shams ripped through the batting with figures of 6/2 from his 2 overs. SVW managed a total of 74/6 but were fortunate enough to get 5 bonus penalty runs because of LCO's slow bowling rate and thus a target of 80 was set for the chasing team.

With a renowned batting line-up, the target of 80 looked more than getable. The deadly bowling line-up of SVW was not ready to give up yet and started to rage fire from the very beginning! LCO lost 2 early wickets and were reduced to 21/2 after 5 overs. With 59 runs needed from 30 balls, Atif Shams looked to hit big but was unable to do so. He top-scored with 26 from 29 balls and none of the other batsmen touched the double figure mark. The bowling was exceptional from SVW. The wickets column does not show much but they were way above than being only economical. Skipper Khalid Khan bowled a maiden and ended up with figures of 5/1 from his 2 overs. Zadran and Jawed Khan partnered him well conceding 4 and 5 runs respectively. The batsmen could not force their way out and fell way short of their target. LCO finished on 46/3 from their 10 overs.

SVW thus won this low scoring encounter by 33 runs and record their 1st win of the tournament. The bowling attack of SVW is indeed ready to rock this tournament going ahead!
