Royal Cricket Padova win by 7 wickets!

This brings us to the end of a brilliant game here from the ECS T10 Venice between Trentino Aquila XI and Royal Cricket Padova. Thank you for joining us. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for the latest scores and other updates from the world of cricket. This is Abhinav Kumar and alongside me, my colleague Sooryanarayanan Sesha signing off for now. Stay safe folks!
What an outstanding game of cricket we have witnessed here, as Royal Cricket Padova have beaten Trentino Aquila XI on the very last ball of the game by 7 wickets.

The top-scorer for Royal Cricket Padova was Sameera Kurukulasuriya, who scored a quickfire 39 from 26 balls & he was supported very well by his opening partner Nishan Arachchige, who scored 29 from 22 balls & towards the end, Manoj Rodrigo remained unbeaten on a critical 8 from 7 deliveries, while Dishan Fernando scored just 2 runs & Vidana Dhananjaya remained unbeaten for 1.

The Trentino Aquila XI bowlers gave a good fight, with Awais Arshad being the pick of the bowlers, with figures of 2/16 from 2 overs, while skipper Ali Saqib Arshad also bowled well for 1/13 in his 2 overs, while Zeeshan Javaid Muhammad bowled tightly to end up with 0/12 from 2 overs, while Sadaqat Ali bowled 2 overs for 0/18, but Atif Saleem Raza was hit for quite a few runs to end up with 0/29 in his 2 overs.

This was a real heart-stopper of a clash and the Royal Cricket Padova batsmen have just about escaped with a win after making it quite hard for themselves towards the end.
Over: 10 | Summary: 2 2 W 1 1 1 Bowler: Awais Asghar Score: 91/3
9.6 Awais Asghar to Manoj Rodrigo, THE BOWLER FUMBLES! OH DEAR! RCP MAKE IT HOME! Full outside off, gives himself room and smothers it on the up towards mid-off. He was never making his ground but the pressure gets to the fielding side as the throw pops through the bowler's palms! Would have been out by a mile but eventually he makes it home with a dive! What a thriller we've had here in Venice! RCP win by 7 wickets off the final delivery! Bring out those BP tablets!
9.5 Awais Asghar to Vidana Dananjaya, JUST MAKES HIS GROUND! Pulls a short one to short mid-wicket and tees off, just about slides his bat in on time as the bowler dislodges the bails. Good call from the umpire! GOLDEN BALL ANYONE?
9.4 Awais Asghar to Manoj Rodrigo, short on off, pulled towards fine leg and a single is all he can get! 2 off 2 now!
What a time to get a wicket for Asghar, with Kurukulasuriya handing a return catch to Asghar and now, Padova require 3 runs in 3 balls.

Vidana Dhananjaya is the new batsman at the crease now.
9.3 Awais Asghar to Sameera Kurukulasuriya, OUT! HUGE WICKET! THE SET BATSMAN DEPARTS! What a soft dismissal as well as he looks to pull a short one, the ball lobs into the air and drops right into the hands of the bowler! 3 needed off 3 now!
9.2 Awais Asghar to Sameera Kurukulasuriya, TERRIFIC RUNNING! Full around off, powered uppishly over long off as the fielder picks up. They race back for the second run with success!
9.1 Awais Asghar to Sameera Kurukulasuriya, horrendous throw! Short on off, pulled towards deep backward square leg. There was never a second as the fielder fires it nearly halfway through the pitch and allows the second to be completed with ease
A timely boundary for Royal Cricket Padova, who despite losing a wicket, have been able to score 8 runs and after 9 overs, they are 84/2 and need another 7 runs from the last over.

Awais Asghar will bowl the final over of the game.
Over: 9 | Summary: W 2 2lb 0 0 4 Bowler: Ali Saqib Arshad Score: 84/2
8.6 Ali Saqib Arshad to Manoj Rodrigo, FOUR! CRUCIAL BOUNDARY! In the slot at the stumps, clears his front leg and drills it right into the gap through mid-wicket - bisects the two boundary riders to perfection! 7 needed off the last over!
8.5 Ali Saqib Arshad to Manoj Rodrigo, loses his balance as he gives himself room and drills it along the ground towards mid-off
8.4 Ali Saqib Arshad to Manoj Rodrigo, no run
8.3 Ali Saqib Arshad to Manoj Rodrigo, hits a hard length on the pitch before hitting the batsmen on the rib cage as he looks to pull, they scamper through for a quick run as the bowler fires it into the batsman's bat while attempting a run out. The bat drops and they race back for a second. It's all happening out there!
8.2 Ali Saqib Arshad to Manoj Rodrigo, full at the stumps, clears his front leg and drills it towards cow corner. Fumbles a simple stop and allows them to cross over! Trentino have to do better!
A big wicket at a critical time, with Awais Arshad getting the wicket of Dishan Fernando and this game is really becoming tight, with Royal Cricket Padova 76/2 after 8.1 overs and they needing another 15 runs from 11 balls.

The new batsman at the crease is Manoj Rodrigo.
8.1 Ali Saqib Arshad to Dishan Fernando, OUT! TAME DISMISSAL! Goes short around off, no control over the pull as it lobs across to the bowler who pouches the simplest of return catches! Getting tighter than anticipated, this one!
A very tight over from Zeeshan Javaid Muhammad, with only 5 runs from it and after 8 overs, Royal Cricket Padova are 76/1 and need another 15 runs from 12 balls.

Awais Arshad will bowl the penultimate over of the game.
