SWE won by 4 runs.
 
Sweden beat Norway by 4 runs!

What a game of T10 cricket we have had here! Niazi was so so close to being the hero for Norway but he's holed out to deep mid-wicket! The game ebbed and flowed throughout! Norway came back from the clutches of defeat to the doorstep of a stunning win but failed to get over the line in the final over!

Norway didn't have the best of starts with the likes of Raza Iqbal and Wahid Ghauri failing to get going in the powerplay overs. Wickets kept tumbling for the batting side with Zahid and Azam Khalil also picking up a few wickets for themselves. However, the turning point was the over from Sami Rahmani, who conceded 30 runs off his only over with Hayatullah Niazi smashing a few sixes off him. 

He was given company by Vinay Ravi and Ali Tafseer, whose run-out was perhaps needless in the context of the game. However, this wasn't all. Abhijit Venkatesh brought himself on in the final over ahead of Qudratullah, which seemed like a bad decision for a while. But with five runs needed off the last three balls, Niazi slogged one to Rahmani at deep midwicket to concede the win. In the end, Sweden had to take the long road to a victory but would be thrilled to come out of this fixture on the right side. 

All in all, this is what ECC cricket is all about and what T10 cricket is all about! The game is never over until it is officially over! And if you aren't over with his game, we've got more ECC action coming your way with Belgium taking on Luxembourg in about 10 minutes. But that is it from this game. Until next time, this is Dwijesh along with my colleague Pratyush signing off! Good Bye and Take Care!

9.3 Abhijit Venkatesh to Hayatullah Niazi, DOT BALL! A full-toss bowled outside off, Niazi slogs it towards the long-on fielder but they don't take a single
Makes that 5 needed in 4 balls now.
9.3 Abhijit Venkatesh to Hayatullah Niazi, WIDE! Abhijit is having a shocker of an over here! A full ball bowled outside the tramline as the umpire stretches out his arms!
9.2 Abhijit Venkatesh to Prithvi Bhart, a full ball bowled outside off, Bhart gets down low and slogs it towards the square leg region for a single
OH DEAR ME! THAT'S A GIFT AND HOW! That's been given as a no-ball as it didn't land anywhere near the pitch. Poor stuff from Venkatesh. Giving his keeper no chance! 7 in 4 needed now.
9.2 Abhijit Venkatesh to Prithvi Bhart, FIVE BONUS RUNS! THIS IS POOR FROM ABHIJIT! A wayward ball bowled down the leg-side and past the keeper as the ball races away to the boundary! These are just bonus runs here!
9.1 Abhijit Venkatesh to Hayatullah Niazi, IN THE AIR BUT LANDS SAFE! A length ball bowled outside off, Niazi skies one towards the mid-off region for only a single
9.1 Abhijit Venkatesh to Hayatullah Niazi, WIDE! Poor from Venkatesh as he bowls one down the leg-side for a wide!

8.1 Khalid Zahid to Hayatullah Niazi, finds the blockhole on the off-stump line, nothing Niazi can do about that one as he squeezes this one out
Khalid Zahid (1-0-2-1) is the new bowler!

A brilliant over from Zahid, despite being hit for a maximum! He concedes nine runs off it but gets the big wicket of Vinay Ravi! However, the equation is still in Norway's favour but Sweden needs two wickets to win this game! It's all happening here!
