The Badshahs won the toss and chose to bat first. The decision was taken so as to put pressure on the Kolkata Tigers team which they did well with the formidable score that they put up of 182 runs. The start was not very great for the Badshahs and they lost their first wicket in the very first over. But they were not let down by this and gained the requirement momentum under the aegis of Humayun Farhat who came in after his brother and Imran Nazir. These players got some good runs for their team. Hasan Raza was caught for a duck which disappointed a lot. But the middle and lower order batsmen handled the game well and reached to the target of 183 runs for Kolkata Tigers.
When the Tigers came in to bat, there were no signs of any struggle that happened to occur. Instead the openers seemed pretty calm and composed. Dasgupta managed to score 22 runs before he was dismissed in the seventh over. Klusner however stay put on the field and struggled with his bat to get some good hits. With these hits he managed to pull his team score a great deal. However the efforts from the other batsmen seemed insufficient as the run rate was very controlled by the Badshahs bowlers. Klusner was dismissed on the very last delivery that was bowled. The team ran short of just 7 runs and lost the match to the Lahore Badshahs who have been undefeated as yet in the Edelweiss Challenge.
