In the first quarter-final of the day, Swieqi United caused a major upset by beating reigning champions Marsa. MAR topped the Group A table with six wins, while SWU could only muster a couple of wins after the group stages. A fantastic all-round performance from Imran Ameer proved to be the difference.
Atlas UTC Knights came out on top against Mater Dei in this battle between two evenly matched teams. Thanks to some top-notch bowling from Sujesh Appu, MTD didn’t have enough runs on the board to compete. The run-chase became a formality and AUK batsmen, led by Justin Shaju, reached the target with 10 balls to spare.
Super Kings continue to be the only undefeated side in FanCode ECS Malta. SKI hammered Southern Crusaders in the quarter-final with Ravinder Singh leading the way with a half-century. Ashok Bishnoi picked up four wickets to clean up the opposition for just 53 runs.
After being restricted to a score of 82, American University of Malta bowlers failed make an impression. As a result, the run-chase became pretty straightforward for Overseas who got to the target with eight wickets in hand.
