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

18.6

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
18.4

Wahab Riaz to Hogg, 1 run, length ball outside off, driven with an open face, gets a single to deep point
18.3
6
Wahab Riaz to Hogg, SIX runs, slower short ball, and Hogg holds his shape and pulls this clean over midwicket for six. This is picked well by Hogg, and he is proving to be Lahore's nemesis

Wahab Riaz to Hogg, no run, short of a length, at the stumps, pushed to short cover

Wahab Riaz to Hogg, 1 wide, bouncer, a loopy one, it seems to have bounced too high. And it has been called too
