Vaasa made a slow start but managed to score 160 before they were bowled out in 37.3 overs. For tigers midium pacer Amin got 4 wickets. To chase a doable 160, Tigers did not make a good response and wickets were falling in regular intervals. Among the top orders, only Titu showed some resistance before he was cought out. At the end, some patience from Jewel and a partnership of him with Kamran raised some hopes for the tigers but it was never enough when the task was massive. Few doubtful decisions made by the umpires might made the way easier for Vaasa but nevertheless, they played a better cricket to win the match.
