Scorecard
All-round effort from Aqib Iqbal but just not enough to get his side home in the end. A brilliant hat-trick followed by an unbeaten 30 in the end but it was too much left to do to be good. Disappointing for him to be on the losing side as Pakistan CC end on 102/4, falling short by 12 runs of the target set by Vienna. They started with a bang in the first over but lost quick wickets, three of them on the score of 21 that really pushed them back in the chase. They did make a good recovery towards the end but it was some tight bowling in the middle overs that took the game away from their reach. 

Two wickets for Sahil Zadran at the top, coming back nicely after an expensive opening over, to be the pick of the bowlers. A decent performance overall with the ball from Vienna to defend their total of 113 with ease in the end, despite Deedar being smashed for 18 runs in the final over. So a good all-round game for them and this will boost their confidence going into the next games. Opportunity for Pakistan CC to redeem themselves as they play another game right after this and they will be looking to get back to winning ways!
Fantastic striking from the batsmen in the final over but it's just not enough to take them home, too much left for the end and they have fallen short by 12 runs despite a good finish. Looks close in the end but the game was Vienna's way coming into the last few overs courtesy some controlled bowling!

Some striking but too little too late for Pakistan CC this as we go into the final over with Vienna CC right on top and on course of winning this game with ease. 30 needed off the last 6 and only a miracle can take Pakistan CC home, doesn't look likely though!

Another good over bowled out by Noor Ahmadzai picking up that wicket and keeping it tight only apart from that no-ball which went for a four. Will not affect much though as it keeps getting tougher for Pakistan CC!
