Zurich Nomads CC 133/5 (10 ov)
Zurich Crickets CC 48/7 (10 ov)
Zurich Nomads CC won by 85 runs.
ZNCC beating ZUCC by 85 runs. What promised to be an exciting contest at the end of first innings turns out to be a one-sided affair in the end. ZNCC absolutely steam-rolled the opposition in all three departments. Gave away only a single boundary to ZUCC batsmen in the course of 10 overs. The opening batsmen Faheem Nazir joining the party by picking a wicket on the first ball of the second inning in addition to his power hitting in the first inning. Man of the Match performance from him. ZUCC need to go back to the drawing board and contemplate where did they went wrong. As for ZNCC, they have sent a stern warning to the oppositions about their capabilities! They are the team to look out for in this tournament.
And that brings to an end to the first match of the European Cricket league. Until next time, I Abhinav Singh and my partner Habil Ahmed signing off. Hope you all had fun See you all very soon. Cheers!
9.6 A Nazir to D Pariaug, slightly overpitched and the reverse sweep attempt comes to nothing as he misses the ball completely. No run!
9.5 A Nazir to A Safi, gets an outside edge this time but it is dropped by the man at slip. Nazir could have had his third wicket of the over!
9.4 A Nazir to D Pariaug, slightly overpitched and it is lofted over the bowler's head for a single. No power in the shot, the batsmen hitting it off the end of the blade

9.1 A Nazir to E Wardle, bowled on a good length on the leg stump and he simply plays that into the fielder's hands at short midwicket. Azeem Nazir, the other opening batsmen of ZNCC getting a wicket off his first delivery. Faheem already has a wicket under his belt.
