Hetmyer, the Amazon Warriors' captain: "Bowlers did a fantastic job. They did well at the beginning. It was a wicket I have never played on before. I thought that would give batters a better of chance of seeing the pitch and try to chase down whatever they get. For us, it's always about doing your best. As a captain, I'll try my best to make sure everyone is in good spirit, smiling and happy. At the end of the day, it is what it is. All we can do is look ahead. We have had good performances, glimpses of good performances here and there. It's about putting everything together as we go home."
Miller, the winning captain of Royals: "Looking back at the tough wicket, with not many runs on the board early on, staring down the barrel, just coming back from the rain, it was phenomenal from Mujeeb and Jason. It was a game changing innings and changed the momentum of the game. Obviously, on a wicket like that, we started well but kept losing wickets. Huge partnership at the end and really chuffed with the result....Not worried about batting. We sure put enough runs on the board, we were in for a great chance of winning. We as a team are putting on runs that's more important [than the individual performances]. Coming in as captain, I have learnt so much, it has challenged me so much. There has been a huge support. It was all about environment. Disappointing that I am leaving, would have loved to stay but leaving for national duty."
Player of the Match is Holder: "It was just about getting partnership and getting us back into the game. The rain played a key role. To get to 111 was good. I just tried to be calm [with the ball] and contribute to the team. It is really good to be in this position [top of the table and qualify for the playoffs]. we are hoping to keep the momentum high going into the last leg. "
Srinidhi will bring you the presentation ceremony.
2.40pm Royals have qualified for the playoffs. In the end, it was a comfortable 29-run win but after 13 overs in their innings, Royals were struggling. Thanks to late blows from Holder and Mujeeb, they reached 107 for 6. Set 111 to win in 16 overs, Amazon Warriors were strangled by Mujeeb and Cornwall. McCoy, Holder and Simmonds kept the pressure on, which meant Amazon Warriors could muster just 81 for 9, only three of their batters reaching the double digits.
