So that was all from the coverage of the first semi-final of Fairbreak Invitational Tournament 2022, this is Ishan signing off along with my co-commentator Shashank Surly and our scorer/analyst Ashok and Manish.

Don't forget to join us back for the second semi-final between Barmy Army and Barmy Army and Tornadoes which will bein at 21.30 IST, soon will be back for that.
Player of the Match: Danni Wyatt is adjudged as 'Player of the Match'. (For her brilliant performance of 83 off just 48 balls, )
Ishan: Falcons have won by 25 runs and advance into the final of Fairbreak Invitational Tournament 2022 where they will meet the winner of the second semi-final between Barmy Army and Tornadoes. On the other hand, Spirit will play the loser of the second semi-final for the third place.

Falcons were given a dream start by their openers Danni Wyatt and Chamari Athapaththu who led the foundation and empowered them to a total of 172/5.

In reply, Spirit managed to score 147 only. On a contrary, to Fukcons's openers, Spirit openers gave them a very slow start especially the innings of Natthakan Chantham (42 off 40) put extra pressure on the middle-order.

Sophia Dunkley perhaps looked the only batter in Spirit's line-up who was timing the ball brilliantly before getting stumped on 45. Sophie Ecclestone too played a few excellent shots down the order but that
wasn't proved to be enough for Spirit.

 For Falcons, Anju Gurung scalped two wickets and was very economical in her spell. Sornnarin Tippoch, Chamari Athapaththu, and Gunjan Shukla were also among the wickets.
