The required run-rate creeping up and in the death overs, Iqbal finally was dismissed as he was swinging for the fences. With that, the chances of Sparta winnings this contest diminished and Veni Vedi Vici went on to pull off a double on Sparta.
Iqbal was the lone man standing for Sparta as he was the only one able to find the boundaries and keep the chances of Sparta winning this contest alive. Danish at the other end was just working the ball around and handing the strike to Iqbal.
The scoring rate picked up drastically for Sparta. Looking at this, VVV skipper brought on his strike bowler Khalid who was able to break the partnership and get the big wicket of Tarr who was just starting to cut loose. Sparta were pushed on the backfoot once again!
Tim batting alongside Tarr was eating up a lot of deliveries as he was trying to over-hit the deliveries he was facing. In the end, he could not add-on and lost his wicket for just 4. Iqbal came out to bat next and he alongside Tarr did start to find the boundaries.
Coming into chase 107 runs, Sparta needed their skipper Tarr to bat through the innings. Sparta were surely missing out on their big guns today as their key players could not make it for the game due to national duties.
Well, Khalid is definitely the man of the match in this contest. He managed to play a brilliant cameo in the first innings scoring 39 off just 13. For Sparta 28 runs conceded in the penultimate over came back to haunt them in this chase. Nonetheless, it was some fantastic bit of bowling by VVV bowlers as they were on song.

Just 7 runs coming from that over. Sparta need 27 runs from the final over! A tight penultimate over, quite contrary to the first innings which has probably become the decider of this contest! Can Latif pull off a miracle here?
