    2.1  Mohammad Asif to Rory Hamilton-Brown, Lofted drive, falls into the gap. The ball gets stuck in the outfield meaning the batsmen get only two.  (2) 
    2.2  Mohammad Asif to Rory Hamilton-Brown, Driven down the ground to long-on, the batsmen get only one  (1) 
    2.3  Mohammad Asif to Murray Goodwin, Gorgeous square drive, placed perfectly past point. There isn't a lot of power in the shot though, and third man cuts it off while the batsmen run hard for three.  (3) 
    2.4  Mohammad Asif to Rory Hamilton-Brown, Yorker full and outside offstump, the batsman just squeezes it away for a quick single to cover.  (1) 
    2.5  Mohammad Asif to Murray Goodwin, They run the first hard, they come for two, the fielder has the ball, they call for the third...will they get there!?! The throw is in, it's wide, the batsman makes the dive...and he's in! Excellent running, and poor fielding. 3 more!  (3) 
    2.6  Mohammad Asif to Rory Hamilton-Brown, Flicked off his hips through the vacant square leg region for two runs. The captain decides to remove a man from gully to cover up that spot.  (2)

    4.2  Mohammad Asif to Murray Goodwin, Played to deep cover. Two runs.  (2) 
    4.3  Mohammad Asif to Murray Goodwin, He walks across his stumps trying to paddle it away, but misses it. And the keeper's appealing! There was a sound as the ball passed the batsman, and the umpire is unmoved. Replays show it was off the pad. Good call.  (0) 
    4.4  Mohammad Asif to Murray Goodwin, He's absolutely NAILED that one, but the man in the deep makes a fantastic save, pushing the ball back in just in time! His teammate picks up the ball and hurls it in and they save a run, good teamwork.  (3) 
    4.5  Mohammad Asif to Rory Hamilton-Brown, GOT HIM!! Oh no, wait, sorry. It's just a dot ball. My bad.  (0) 
    4.6  Mohammad Asif to Rory Hamilton-Brown, That's plumber than the man who fixes my kitchen sink! Out!

    5.2  Rana Naved-Ul-Hasan to Dwayne Smith, Short ball, cut away for a run.  (1) 
    5.3  Rana Naved-Ul-Hasan to Murray Goodwin, Good ball, he goes for the cut, it's too close to cut, he's inside edged it, and it misses the stumps by a whisker! The keeper tidies up and there is no run. Phew that was close.   (0) 
    5.4  Rana Naved-Ul-Hasan to Murray Goodwin, Good running, two runs.  (2) 
    5.5  Rana Naved-Ul-Hasan to Murray Goodwin, Scorching bouncer, the batsman clearly didn't expect that and just sways out of the way at the last moment!  (0) 
    5.6  Rana Naved-Ul-Hasan to Murray Goodwin, Ahhh that's poor fielding. The batsman taps it away for a single, and the fielder fires in an over-eager throw well wide of the stumps. No one is backing up and some the batsmen run two more in overthrows! The captain isn't happy!  (3)

    Murray Goodwin's 56-ball 68 powered Sussex Sharks to a sub-par total on an admittedly difficult wicket to score runs on. This was his highest score this season.
    Dwayne Smith also contributed with an invaluable 31. However, the pace at which he scored was quite underwhelming. A knock that left the Sharks wanting more.

    For the Stallions, Mohammad Asif and Shoaib Malik picked-up two wickets each, with the former having an impressive economy. The two were quite effective.
    A 147-run target is anyone's game, but with the kind of firepower that Sialkot has, it is going to take one hell of an effort from the Sharks to pull off this victory.

    15.3  Piyush Chawla to Shoaib Malik, Down the track, driven to the deep. Two more.  (2)

    15.5  Piyush Chawla to Shoaib Malik, Ahhh that's poor fielding. The batsman taps it away for a single, and the fielder fires in an over-eager throw well wide of the stumps. No one is backing up and some the batsmen run two more in overthrows! The captain isn't happy!  (3) 
    15.6  Piyush Chawla to Imran Nazir, He walks across his stumps trying to paddle it away, but misses it. And the keeper's appealing! There was a sound as the ball passed the batsman, and the umpire is unmoved. Replays show it was off the pad. Good call.  (0)

    Imran Nazir, you beauty! An incredible 77-run unbeaten innings (off 49 deliveries) from Imran Nazir has helped Sialkot Stallions blast right to the final at Lord's.
    The brazen opener was supported through his mercurial knock by his skipper - Shoaib Malik, who himself played a vital knock to ensure the win for the Stallions.

    Even though the Sharks' strike bowlers, James Kirtley and Yasir Arafat made inroads early on, they could never truly capitalise on a thriving start to the innings.
    Both bowlers claimed a wicket each, but their economy was quite appalling for a semi-final. Hamilton-Brown dismissed Malik and was also the most economical.

    This is the second time my team has lost the semi-final in one of your leagues. Any coincidence?

    Jokes aside, this was a poor display from a good team.

    An incredible 73 off 47 balls from Colin Ingram bundled with Boucher's sturdy 46 and boisterous knocks from Jacobs and Smuts pushed the Warriors to 189 for 6.
    The most consistently performing bowling line of the Victorian Bushrangers failed to restrict their opponents to a modest score in this all-important semi-final.

    Even though Dirk Nannes claimed a 4-wicket haul, it was not enough for the Bushrangers since the fall of wickets failed to hinder the Warriors' scoring-rate.
    Apart from a rare Jacques Kallis misfiring and an Ashwell Prince failure, everyone in the Warriors' batting line scored invaluable runs and pushed them to 189/6.

    7.2  Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Dwayne Bravo, Good short ball, the batsman is caught off guard and top edges it high in the air! The keeper is after it...he's runs hard...and the ball lands just after him! He drops a glove and hurls the ball in to keep the batsman to just a single.  (1) 
    7.3  Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Cameron White, Chipped, and lands safe. Two runs in the mean while.  (2) 
    7.4  Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Cameron White, Swing and a miss. No run.  (0) 
    7.5  Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Cameron White, He walks across his stumps trying to paddle it away, but misses it. And the keeper's appealing! There was a sound as the ball passed the batsman, and the umpire is unmoved. Replays show it was off the pad. Good call.  (0) 
    7.6  Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Cameron White, Delicate little late cut, well placed. Quick single taken.  (1)

    9.2  Jacques Kallis to Dwayne Bravo, Oooh! Good ball, yorker length delivery on the legstump. The batsman just barely gets his bat down on time, and the non striker urges him through for a quick single.  (1) 
    9.3  Jacques Kallis to Cameron White, No shot offered.  (0) 
    9.4  Jacques Kallis to Cameron White, Ahhh that's poor fielding. The batsman taps it away for a single, and the fielder fires in an over-eager throw well wide of the stumps. No one is backing up and some the batsmen run two more in overthrows! The captain isn't happy!  (3) 
    9.5  Jacques Kallis to Dwayne Bravo, No Run, excellent bowling.  (0)

    10.1  Nicky Boje to Cameron White, Slapped away through the offside for a glorious boundary! Lovely shot. The captain's fuming now and removes a man from third slip to cover that region.  (4) 
    10.2  Nicky Boje to Cameron White, Gosh, how unlucky can you be. He's absolutely nailed that, but straight to the fielder. No run.  (0)

    Warriors win comfortably in the end, but they would've had their hearts in their mouths up until the final over. 25 runs from the last over was a little too much.
    Brilliant fifties from Cameron White and Dwayne Bravo go down in vain as the Warriors sneak through a 16-run win to ensure their berth in The Final at Lord's.

    Victorian Bushrangers' top-order failed to lay the foundation they would've needed to chase down a massive 190-run target, and arguably led to their downfall.
    Shunning Jacques Kallis, it was a mediocre-at-best bowling effort from the Warriors. Having plenty of runs on the board to defend was the gamesaver in the end.

    I thought Victoria were favourites but great job from the Warriors. Cannot wait for the final vs Sialkot.

    My man! I don't hate you. This came from you winning plenty of FC games. Sometimes loss is also good. You took it in the wrong way. I don't even know you actually so this was humor only.
