The Funny Video From The ECS T10 League That Went Viral
In the latest ECS T10 league in Prague, the 31st match of the tournament did bring some new drama that the viewers of it would take a long time to forget. PCR made 91 for the loss of five wickets in their game against UCC in the game batting first. It was certainly a decent score in a 10-overs match. However, the game went right down to the wire as UCC did put a great fight and took the game to the last ball of the 10th over.
The match went viral because of what happened in the last ball of the game. It was a golden ball and UCC needed a couple of runs to win in the last ball, which they did in a unique manner.

The UCC batsman managed to make a square cut off that last delivery but unfortunately for him, it reached the fielder in the circle. He managed to run only one before the throw was done to the wicket-keeper. The non-striker reached early before the ball reached the keeper. He waited in the crease for the keeper to dislodge the bell rather than trying to run again. All the PCR players started celebrating but the batsman who scored it continued his run from the other end which kept the game going.
By the time all PCR players were celebrating both the batsmen crossed and completed another run. If a batsman is in the crease, the opposition can’t run out of him and the second run was a valid Run, what smart thinking by the Batsman. UCC won the match by five wickets. Really, what an unbelievable end to the game.
What Was Said By The Board Sources Regarding The Talks Between The BCCI And The ECB?
Meanwhile one of the most popular T20 leagues in the world, the Indian Premier League has been suspended midway because of the Covid-19 second wave in India. The second phase of the tournament needs to be completed. According to some sources in BCCI, it is most likely to happen in UK or UAE. There is also T20 World Cup coming to this year and BCCI is doing everything to host it as scheduled.
“BCCI and the ECB are in discussions to tweak the five-Test series. Details of those discussions aren’t public yet. But in whichever manner the ECB agrees to tweak the Test series, they will want the IPL in England because the counties can earn from it. There will be a good chance of a quid pro quo”.
“Right now, India is the host venue for the World Cup. That’s how the Board is seeing it. If things go awry again, then a call will be taken only after the month of June. And yes, UAE is the second option.”
