Andre Fletcher is adjudged the Man of the Match for his blistering knock.

Previously, batting first, the Rajputs had put on a impressive score of 121 runs on the board courtesy some big hitting from captain Brendon McCullum and a handy cameo from Rilee Rossouw. For the Pakhtoons, captain Shahid Afridi lead the bowling attack from the front, giving away just 11 runs and picking up the important wicket of Rossouw.

What a thriller ! Easily the best match of the tournament so far. Pakhtoons openers began well and raced away to 32 runs from first two overs. Three good overs in the middle brought the Rajputs back into the game but Andre Fletcher showed his class with a match winning innings of 68 runs. He was ably supported from the other end by Shafiq who was slow to begin with but later on played the ramp shot to very good effect. For the Rajputs, Sayed Shirzad was the pick of the bowlers and gave away just 15 runs from his 2 overs.

The Rajputs began on a great note as McCullum and Rossouw smashed the Pakhtoons bowlers in the powerplay. They were 70/1 after 4 overs. But a couple of good overs from captain Shahid Afridi and left arm spinner Ashraf brought them back into the game. Irfan then delivered a dream last over  to restrict the Rajputs to a score of 121 runs. Rajputs looked set to cross the 140 run mark and will be disappointed with their final score at the end. Can the likes of Andre Fletcher, Colin Ingram power the Pakhtoons to 122? We will get to know shortly.
