Hello & Welcome Everyone to the Grand Finale of Ramadhan T20 Cup Between two best sides of the tournament. It's Malik's PIA taking on Younis' HBL in final encounter.

As all predictions, it's going be a close and nail biting contest but somehow PIA still holds upper hand as they are grabbing victories convincingly, but you never know what may happen on given day. Fingers crossed for the biggest game of the tournament which is yet to begin.
PIA & HBL both were in Group A and they had a controversial match where decision went in total favor to PIA when HBL were almost to victory, and that one decision which was a free hit call when HBL mainstream bowler bowled Shehryar Ghani but was eventually given as no-ball which was considered poor decision in the end.
Update: HBL won the toss and they will be batting first, another chase opportunity for PIA.
HBL to start their innings: Mirza Asad Baig & Shan Masood opening for HBL.
Another tight delivery, Asad defends himself, no run still.

Good over so far by Cheema.
Asad Baig misses it...another dot ball.

So good over by Cheema, first over and it's a maiden.

Malik must be happy about his decision.
HBL 0/0, 1st over.
