10.31pm Just very briefly, you thought that the revised target might be a few too many runs for Patriots, but credit to them.. they didn't allow themselves to get daunted. They came out swinging freely - your only option in such a situation - and have reaped the rewards for some bold and fearless batting. Tallawahs had a hard time gripping the ball after the rain, and Patriots took full toll of that. Fifty-three in 4.3 overs, and they hardly broke a sweat, knocking the runs off with five balls to spare. Such is the power of modern-day T20 batting. Patriots deserving winners and qualify for the playoffs of the 2018 CPL.

"Happy that I contributed to the team," says Mahmudullah. "I was trying to watch the ball and hit it. We would like to win another game and keep the momentum with ourselves."

Umair: "Yay! The men in green, black, and yellow beat the men in green, black, and, uh, yellow... Who designed these kits?" The men in every colour in the book.. I'm guessing they call themselves "The Multi-Coloured Parrots".

Rassie van der Dussen is Man of the Match. "It was pressure. Even last night was very dry," he says. "I think because of the mositure, the ball skidded on nicely. We spoke last night as a team that we haven't clicked yet. If we can get it right on the day, we can beat anyone."

Right then, that is all we have from this game. we hope you enjoyed our coverage today. The tournament enters its most exciting phase now, and very shortly, before we know it, knockout fever will be upon us. Catch you then. Until then, goodbye and thanks for your time.

Powell to Mahmudullah, 2 runs
full toss, the fielders are all inside, and that means Mahmudullah can take the liberty to go aerial and slap it uppishly over the cover region

Patriots two runs away from a playoff berth. And they have a full over to get them in.

Zampa to van der Dussen, 3 runs
low full toss, reverse-swept through point, sweeper cover runs across and dives in front of the boundary. Has he made contact with the ball? The foot brushed against the rope but that was not when he was making contact with the ball. He then slips and stumbles and falls over the ball but the feet are inside

Thomas to Mahmudullah, SIX runs
oh yes! That's a mighty blow. Short of a length, sitting up nicely on middle, backs away to allow for the extension of the arms and carts a pull over deep midwicket. Huge, huge over. Game within their grasp now for Patriots.

Where will the last one go?
