So that is it from the first game, the next match will begin in just under 30 minutes, so tune in to the live commentary for that one. For now, this is Rohan Sharma saying good night, and good luck.

Marchant de Lange, Man of the Match: Very enjoyable. A bit like back home so felt comfortable. A little bit of nerves there, but yeah the main key was to stay calm and do the basics right.

Henry Davids, Titans captain: A bit close there. The wickets cost us a lot of momentum (in the first innings). They guys kept putting the ball in the good areas and we ended up on top today.

Hang in there for the post-match presentation, with quotes from the captains.

What did I tell you? I told you we were in for a cracker, and Brisbane and Titans did not fail to deliver. Initially, it looked like the Titans would lose, especially with the sub-par total they eventually fronted up. However, Davids was judicious with his bowling changes, and kept Brisbane guessing till the very end. Narrow victory for the Titans, as they hold on by just four runs. De Lange was the star of the show for them with the ball, as he bowled with pace and hostility in his earlier spell, before bowling a terrific final over to see his team through. Brisbane are in some trouble now, with two losses out of two.

de Lange to McDermott, OUT

full and on middle and it's all over. De Lange is the hero as he makes a mess of McDermott's stumps. Terrific ball under pressure

Alister McDermott b de Lange 2 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

5 needed off the final ball. Are we in for a Miandad finish? Or is a Super-Over in the prospects?

de Lange to McDermott, 2 runs

full and on leg stump. McDermott able to squeeze this square on the leg side

de Lange to Hauritz, 1 leg bye

full and outside off as Brisbane get another leg-bye

de Lange to McDermott, 1 leg bye

on the pads and the pair scamper for a quick single

de Lange to Hauritz, OUT

short ball and Hauritz, who backs away to try and hit it over the keeper, is unable to get anything on it. He goes for the single though, as his partner is scrambling to make the run, but Gale is short of his ground when the keeper runs down the striker's end

Matthew Gale run out (†Mosehle) 1 (8m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50

And with that, it is time for Nathan Hauritz at No. 10

de Lange to Sabburg, 1 run, OUT

full toss on middle and Sabburg flicks this to midwicket, immediately setting off for the single. He wants two, however, and that is the fatal mistake as is well short of his ground when the throw from the deep by Roelof reaches Mosehle, the keeper, who whips off the bails, and Hau

Chris Sabburg run out (van der Merwe/†Mosehle) 19 (10m 7b 2x4 1x6) SR: 271.42

So 10 needed off the final over, and it is that man, De Lange, who will attempt to break Brisbane's heart

Morne Morkel 4-0-26-1
David Wiese 4-0-34-1
Morkel to Sabburg, 1 run

full delivery on the leg stump, Sabburg turns it to square leg and keeps strike

Morkel to Sabburg, SIX runs

oops, commentator's jinx. Full delivery on the leg stump and Sabburg heaves this over midwicket for a six. No one expected this, especially with Morne firing them in

Good over so far, with just three runs in four balls...

Morkel to Gale, 1 bye

full delivery, just outside off, as Gale tries to land a bat on it, but ends up carrying through to the keeper

Senthil: "How Morne Morkel will bowl his last over will decide the outcome of this match, since he can be erratic or absolutely unplayable as well, who is going to turn now?"

Morkel to Sabburg, 1 run

full and well wide of off stump as Sabburg sticks his bat out to get a run

Morkel to Gale, 1 run

length ball and wide of off stump as Gale is able to cut this away to sweeper cover

And Matthew Gale, who took a four-for on T20 debut earlier, walks into the cauldron

Morkel to Hartley, OUT

bowled him! Hartley goes for the mow straight down the ground, and Morne nails the off stump. Some added suspense to this encounter with the wicket falling in the late overs

Chris Hartley b Morkel 7 (10m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 140

The experienced Morne Morkel comes in to limit the damage. 20 needed of 12.
