Two undefeated sides opened proceedings on day two of the Barcelona Bash. In the battle for top billing, Catalunya Tigers edged Pak I Care by five runs with Asjad Butt hitting 61 off 27 balls.
Tigers cut it finer against Badalona Shaheen winning another last over thriller by just two runs to maintain their perfect record going into the final day.
Badalona Shaheen did manage to break their duck with a comprehensive victory over Catalunya CC. Chasing 119, Hamza Saleem saw his side home with 56 off 29 balls.
In the battle of ECS Barcelona Champions, Pak I Care cruised past a demoralised Catalunya CC with Muhammad Ihsan just missing out on a ton with a magnificent 97, bowled with two balls of the innings remaining.
With four wins from four, Catalunya Tigers are in pole position but Pak I Care can pounce on top spot with a convincing victory over the Tigers on Monday. Net run rate could then decide the Barcelona Bash winners.
