That's that then. Guyana head back home and South Australia get ready for the semis. Sid Ravindran's bulletin will soon be up here. On behalf of team ESPNcricinfo, this is Nitin Sundar signing off from game one. Lions v Bangalore is up next. Do join us for that game.

Presentations coming up. Ferguson is MoM. "Momentum is a huge thing in T20, and the fact that we could get the platform for the hitters to come in in the end overs, that matters a lot. First few games the top order did a really good job. Now the middle order has done well. We feel ready for the semis."

Sarwan: "We played well today and showed what we are capable of. Unfortunately, could not win though. Pretty similar conditions to back home, just a little more bouncy. We need to build on this. Very happy with Ramdeen and Jacobs, they took their chance with both hands today."

Klinger: "We batted really well to get into that position. Win is a win, and four from four, we could not have asked for more. Tait will be back for the semis which is very good for us. We want to continue doing the little things right in the semis."

So the South Australia finish their league commitments with a clean state. They were stretched more than expected today, Guyana putting up their best show of the tournament. But their bowling in the death was a huge letdown - possibly cost them the game.

Shruti, a Guyana fan, feels let down. "Ahhh its heartbreaking to see Guyana come so close... and loose. They really fought it out in the second half."

Daniel Christian is pleased with the show and looks forward to the semis now. They still don't know who they will face there. Christian says it was a sluggish wicket, with the slower balls holding up.

19.6
Christian to Cush, no run

and it ends with a whimper, does Guyana's campaign. Another delivery on the money, another swing, another miss. Game over.

19.5
Christian to Cush, no run

follows Cush as he moves across to the leg stump, but he can't make contact. Dot.

Christian to Fudadin, 1 run

again, close to being called a wide, Fudadin backs away and makes it difficult to make contact, still gets a single out to deep point

Christian to Fudadin, no run

full again, and almost another wide, outside the left hander's off stump but it is not called

Putland to Fudadin, 2 runs

works this one off the pads behind square, but it is ruthlessly tagged by fine leg who keeps it down for a couple

18.5

Putland to Fudadin, 2 runs

clears away and gets under the attempted yorker, but can't time the off drive. Goes higher rather than far and he picks a couple

18.4
Putland to Fudadin, no run

well, the chase is finally dying. Another dot ball, plays it back to the bowler

18.3
Putland to Fudadin, no run

yorka! Perfect one too. Nothing Fudadin can do with it, tries to squeeze it out from off stump, but can't get under that one

18.2

Putland to Fudadin, 2 runs

full toss, played out to midwicket for a couple

Foo is running for Cush by the way.

Putland to Cush, 1 run

full and angling across, Cush digs it out to long off for one

29 off 12. If only Guyana had bowled something other than tripe in the last 10 overs. If only. Putland to finish off.

Fudadin drives it straight to mid off, dot ball, Cush has strike

1w
Harris to Fudadin, 1 wide

pushes it well outside off and it is called a wide. Manou appeals for a catch, naughty guy this Manou is.

Harris to Cush, 1 run

stays in the crease and drives this out to the long off fence for one

Harris to Cush, SIX runs

Push has come to shove, has Cush come to the party?! Sid Ravindran describes that shot as Pollardian, and I must agree. No back-lift, no follow through. Just shows the full face of the bat and the ball lands miles behind extra cover

17.3

Harris to Sarwan, OUT

and he's perished. Boo hoo :-( I was hoping he'll pull a rabbit out of the bag. Another length ball on middle and off, Sarwan cleared the front foot and looked to launch it over long on. A hint of top edge is his undoing. Long on takes the catch leaning back a bit, not very far from the fence

Harris to Sarwan, FOUR runs

Sarwan! He's looking at his best now. He is setting himself up to pick the short off side boundary, and is connecting well. Another majestic lofted cover drive and four more

17.1
W
Harris to Christian, OUT

well, Sarwan takes one step forward, his team-mates take two back. Christian perishes here, a touch unfortunate to find the fielder at deep cover. He timed it quite well, but it landed comfortably in the hands of the fielder
