Zeeshan Khan’s unbeaten 35 helped reigning champions Marsa overcome Southern Crusaders in the first of two matches between the sides on Day 6.
In the run-chase, with 11 runs needed off the final over, Man of the Match Sidharth Anand kept his nerve brilliantly, conceding just a single run and picking up a wicket to help his side win the match.
Marsa completed two in two against winless Southern Crusaders after defending the challenging 96 total by just seven runs. Noshair Akhter won the Man of the Match for his 3-15 in another tight game.

In the final game of Day 6, GOZ did fare better, making 77 batting first, but MTD were once again in top form, chasing down the target with nine balls to spare.
