Raval Sporting romped back to contention with two impressive victories as Group C action continued on Wednesday.
In THE game of the tournament so far, Kharian held off the challenge of favourites Minhaj by one run, winning off the last ball in the highest scoring match of the ECS.
Adeel Ahmed motored newcomers Kharian to an imposing total of 149, which Minhaj didn't look like challenging after a relatively slow start. However, some brilliant batting from Asjad Butt and Muhammad Riaz took Spain's ECL20 representatives to the brink of an unlikely victory. An INSANE final over with three wickets in as many balls saw the underdogs Kharian hang on for a famous victory by the narrowest of margins.
Barcelona Gladiators got off the mark with a convincing win over Skyways after some Shahid Nazir fireworks.
After that agonising defeat earlier in the day, Minhaj moved back to the top of the group with a comfortable win over winless Skyways, helped by another classy innings from that man Asjad Butt.
Tune into the live action from Monday to Friday 0730 GMT | 0830 CET | 1300 IST from the Montjuïc Cricket Ground in Barcelona, Spain.
