Now we have a bowl out and what a time to have it.

Well to explain the rules of a bowl out, five bowlers from both the sides will have a shy at the stumps and the team having the most number of hits at the end of it will be the winner.

Bowl out

Harris wins the toss and is bowling first and his bowlers are PIS Reddy, Harris, Absolem, Razzaq and Boje and for the Badshahs it will be Latif, Nazir, Mahmood, Rana, and Sami

Boje will have the first go for the Heroes and he hits the stumps and Heroes are1-0

Rana to take it for the Badshahs and misses it, he has been hitting stumps all through the day but misses it at the crucial moment and it is 1-0 in favour of Heroes

Absolem bowls a good length outside the off stump and misses and it is still 1-0 in favour of Heroes

Nazir to bowl now and misses the leg stump by a whisker as Heroes still retain the 1-0 lead

PIS Reddy bowls a full ball on the off stump and castles the stumps as he takes the Heroes 2-0 up

Latif who has a smile on his face before he bowls the ball and misses the stumps as Heroes still have 2-0 lead

Harris bowls a full one on the middle stump and uproots it and Heroes take the ICL by winning the match on a bowl out with a 3-0 scoreline

Hyderabad Heroes win the bowl out 3-0 as the match was tied and lift the second edition of the ICL 20-20 by winning the first two matches of the best of three finals
