The more I see of Davy Jacobs, the more I like him - as a batsman, as a captain as a gracious sportsman! That sets the tone then for a huge final tomorrow, featuring Captain Courageous Dhoni against Captain Gracious Davy. Should be a cracker, see you there. On behalf of ESPNcricinfo, and my commentary colleague for today Abhishek Purohit, this is Nitin Sundar signing off. Cheers!

Presentations coming up. Davy Jacobs is MoM. No surprises there.

Klinger: "175, on that wicket, was 20 too many. That's how it is. We had a great tournament, did not bring our A game in today. That's the way it goes. We pride ourselves on taking our catches and today it did not happen. We lost a few wickets early and it did not help. We needed a better start, unfortunately did not happen. Boys have learnt a lot.. Looking forward to going home and taking the domestic scene by storm."

Jacobs: "We got off to a good start with the bat. We knew anything over 160 would have been tough to chase. We knew Tait is a big boy, and he struck again in the first over, but we took them on after that. All the bowlers came on well.. Botha.. Theron.. Looking forward to tomorrow, well done to Redbacks. They did well to win four in the group, someone had to go through. Unfortunate for them."

The last four balls, for me, summed up the game. South Australia began superbly, with Tait bowling a monster of an over. Then they, seemingly unnecessarily, tried to do too many things. The second over of the day bowled by Aaron O'Brien gave the Warriors the momentum and they never lost it. South Australia were playing catch-up all the way from there, but sadly for them, they did not catch too many. Warriors have marched into the final, and Chennai awaits them for a delicious match-up tomorrow. Hang on for the presentations. Meanwhile, Sriram Veera's updated bulletin will be up here in a moment.

Theron to Christian, OUT, finished in style. Yorker on off stump, Christian has had it with the paddles and looks to blast him straight down the ground. He misses again, and the stumps are rattled.

Theron to Christian, no run, tries it again, misses the bat, thuds into the pads. No run.
19.4

Theron to Christian, no run, hang on, this now is the cheekiest shot of the day. Christian springs away to the off side and tries to paddle. Makes no contact. Christian is out of the tv screen when the keeper collects
19.3

Theron to O'Brien, 1 run, that's officially the cheekiest shot of the day. Walks away to off stump and tries to scoop the near yorker over fine leg. Doesn't come off, but balloons safely to the leg side

Theron to Christian, 1 run, near yorker outside off, 133 kph and it is played out meekly towards the off side. Theron tags it
19.1

Theron to O'Brien, 1 leg bye, back of a length, short enough to pull but can't make contact with the cross-batted heave

KM: "Watching Theron's yorkers reminds of the Akon song "Beautiful". "When I see you (yorkers, not Rusty), I run out of words to say".. " Theron to finish off.
