That's all from us in this game. Don't forget to switch to the other tab

"It certainly was tight," says Mitch Marsh, who is also the Man of the Match. "Certainly not the start we would have wanted. Those totals are not always easy, and they have an experienced bowling line-up. Joel has announced himself, and he has a massive future. Just had a bit of a tight hammie, fingers crossed all will be good. It has been fantastic. Although we lost those two close games, we take a lot out of them. We are a young side, a lot to take out of this tournament for us."

"We were short on the board," says Mohammad Hafeez. "We played bad shots, but I feel our spinners brought us back in. Mitchell Marsh played his shots and turned it their way. We didn't play good shots at the top, which put pressure on the boys, but Umar Akmal and Nasim had an exceptional tournament. There was dew towards the end, which made it difficult, but we had the chances and we believe Mitch Marsh made all the difference. We are proud of what we have achieved here."

What a dramatic match then. Even after underscoring, Lahore looked like they could bowl Perth out for 78 and qualify. However, that was to be a highly improbable task, taking a wicket every 7.8 runs. Lahore's spinners ran circles around Perth, reduced them to 40 for 6, but Marsh and Hogg saw not only Lahore out of the tournament, but also Perth to a consolation win

6
Wahab Riaz to Marsh, SIX runs
that's all over. Riaz bowls length, outside off, and he gets under it and extends those long arms through it again. Sends it over wide long-off for six to win this for Perth
18.5
6
Wahab Riaz to Marsh, SIX runs
that's a beautiful shot. Riaz goes for the yorker, he has missed it by inches, and Marsh gets under it and lofts it straight back for a big six. It is just his long arms extending beautifully into it

Wahab Riaz to Hogg, SIX runs

Saad Nasim to Marsh, 1 wide
flat wide down the leg side. Hogg is nearly run out as he is eager for that extra but Marsh sends him back
17.2
6
Saad Nasim to Marsh, SIX runs
short again. Not as short as the previous one, but Marsh stays back and rockets this away for a flat six over midwicket. He has clearly decided this is the over that is to decide the game
17.1

Saad Nasim to Marsh, FOUR runs
and he starts with a long hop. Too short, and Marsh rocks back to pull this wide of long-on for four

4
Wahab Riaz to Marsh, FOUR runs
is that the match? Marsh drives, but he is not close enough to the ball, and he has sent this off the outside half of the bat towards deep cover. Saeed charges in from deep cover, gets there, but can't bend down in time. What's more? He lets it slip through for four
16.3
Wahab Riaz to Marsh, no run
good yorker, squeezes it under his bat, Umar Akmal collects it gingerly
