That's that then. Guyana head back home and South Australia get ready for the semis. Sid Ravindran's bulletin will soon be up here. On behalf of team ESPNcricinfo, this is Nitin Sundar signing off from game one. Lions v Bangalore is up next. Do join us for that game.

Presentations coming up. Ferguson is MoM. "Momentum is a huge thing in T20, and the fact that we could get the platform for the hitters to come in in the end overs, that matters a lot. First few games the top order did a really good job. Now the middle order has done well. We feel ready for the semis."

Sarwan: "We played well today and showed what we are capable of. Unfortunately, could not win though. Pretty similar conditions to back home, just a little more bouncy. We need to build on this. Very happy with Ramdeen and Jacobs, they took their chance with both hands today."

Klinger: "We batted really well to get into that position. Win is a win, and four from four, we could not have asked for more. Tait will be back for the semis which is very good for us. We want to continue doing the little things right in the semis."

So the South Australia finish their league commitments with a clean state. They were stretched more than expected today, Guyana putting up their best show of the tournament. But their bowling in the death was a huge letdown - possibly cost them the game.

Shruti, a Guyana fan, feels let down. "Ahhh its heartbreaking to see Guyana come so close... and loose. They really fought it out in the second half."

Daniel Christian is pleased with the show and looks forward to the semis now. They still don't know who they will face there. Christian says it was a sluggish wicket, with the slower balls holding up.

Christian to Cush, no run, and it ends with a whimper, does Guyana's campaign. Another delivery on the money, another swing, another miss. Game over.
