So folks, that's it from the live coverage of today's third game between the Maratha Arabians and the Punjabi Legends. The bowling might of the Legends was just too good for the Arabians on the day. 

It is another triple header tomorrow with the Pakhtoons beginning the proceedings against the Rajputs at 5 pm IST. Do join us for the live coverage. Until then, see ya !
...
Zahir Khan is rightly adjudged the Man of the Match for his match turning spell of 3/8.

...
Previously, some excellent cameos from the lower order of the Legends had powered them to a strong score of 121 runs. They were struggling at one point of time with the score at 56/3 after 6 overs but some big hits at the end from the likes of Jordan and Akmal provided a great finish to their innings. 
...
So thats it folks ! We have an upset of sorts on our hands as the strong line up of Maratha Arabians are beaten by Punjabi Legends. Chasing a stiff target of 122 runs, Arabians began strongly as the openers hammered 32 runs from the first two overs. However, the match was turned on its head by a brilliant double wicket over from the Afghani left arm china-man Zahir Khan who dismissed the dangerous looking Alex Hales and James Vince in the fourth over of the chase. It was all downhill for the Arabians from there on as they kept on losing wickets regularly. No other batsman posed any challenge to the Punjabi Legends. Chris Jordan was another star with the ball for the Legends as he picked up 4 wickets from just 8 balls !
