ICL 20-20 Indian Championship, 2nd Final: Hyderabad Heroes v Lahore Badshahs at Ahmedabad, Nov 15, 2008
Hyderabad Heroes won by 8 runs
15 November 2008 - night match (20-over match)

Hello all and welcome to the second final of the best of three finals. It will be played out between Lahore Badshahs and Hyderabad Heroes at Ahmedabad

Badshahs, got off to a good start in this best of three finals by winning the first final. They have Imran Farhat, Rana Naved-ul-Hasan to thank for that. They did manage to rub the umpires and the opposition players the wrong way with their aggression. Today, they would be looking to wrap up the finals and gain a measure of revenge for the loss in the finals, last season

Heroes, on the other hand would have to tighten a few loose ends, namely, batting in the final overs and a good new ball partner to Razzaq and they would give the Badshahs, a run for their money. Shahabuddin was listless, sharing the new ball with Razzaq as he allowed Nazir to get away to a flier

Meanwhile, before the match starts you can go through the highlights of ICL by Siddhartha Talya

Pitch is hard and has a layer of grass on it. There are a few cracks on the pitch and it will aid the turn and the team winning the toss would like to chase a target

Badshahs, have had an impressive run at Ahmedabad, they are yet to lose a match here, much similar to Pakistan's run at National stadium, Karachi.

Toss has been won by the Badshahs and they chose to bowl first

Inzamam says" We would like to bowl first as we don't like to encounter dew conditions, if any. We have one change in the team, Shahid Nazir coming in for Arshad Khan"

Harris says" We would have loved to bat first anyway as the pitch is the same from the last final and dew didn't play any part the last time around" To a query on what he considers a winning score he says " 350 but then we scored 170 the last time around and it was not enough. So we need to score a little more than that and we have Alfred Absolem, coming in place of Shahabuddin"

It will be Venkat Raghav and Sanjay, who will be bringing you the live action

If this match is going to be anywhere near the last edition's final, then we are going to have lots of nail biting to do

It will be Jimmy Maher and Ibrahim Khaleel to open the batting for the Heroes and it will be Sami with the new ball and it is seen that umpire Martinez is having an animated discussion with Inzi. About what is left to your guess

Naved-ul-Hasan to Anirudh Singh, OUT, Rana does it again as he bowls a yorker on the middle stump and holds back the pace a liitle. Anirudh, wants to drive it to cover and is into the stroke too soon as the middle stump is pegged back

18.5

Naved-ul-Hasan to Boje, 4 leg byes, short on the leg stump. Boje is looking to duck under it and gets struck on the helmet and the ball runs away to fine leg for four leg byes

and the umpire suggests that it is the end of the over when there was one more ball to go and realise their mistake

Free Hit coming up now

18.6

Naved-ul-Hasan to Harris, 1 run, on the leg stump, Harris turns it to midwicket for a single and wastes the free hit

It was seen that when Boje entered, Rana had some nice word to coo in his ears and Boje didn't like it as he just went on his way to take guard

    • CZ Harris 4 (6b)

Heroes lost the plot after scoring at 10 runs an over till the eighth over and will be pretty disappointed with the score that they end up with, 158. They would need to bowl out of their skins given the fire power in the Badshahs batting line up

    • I Khaleel 26 (29b 1x4)
