7.10 pm Warriors have been too good for South Australia. A 50-run chasm between the sides. Gareth: "To Srikkandh: Nope, not entirely true. What about Smuts and Botha?"

Karn: "Very clever, Jeremy. No 'c's used in fade."

JJ Smuts is the Man of the Match for his 88 off 65 balls. He took a wicket too. Warriors have won two out of two, well placed for a semi-final berth. I have to pop over to the commentary for the Kolkata v Somerset game. Join me there. Cheers.
