Full commentary

Hope you enjoyed our coverage of this one. We will be there tomorrow for more action. Till then on behalf of Binoy and our scorer Vairavan, signing off. Take care and be well. Adios.

What a win for the Tornadoes. Devine and Kalis with a 73-run stand set it up but they allowed the Barmy Army to come back by losing wickets. It got tight at the end as 4 were needed off the final over and they kept their nerve to see it through. A wide and a fumble from Campbelle made it easy as Tornadoes sneaked home. Rumana Ahmed was outstanding and took two wickets in the 19th over to provide a route for an unlikely win but it wasn't to be. Ishimwe was good as well but the opening stand gave the leverage for the Tornadoes to get away despite making mistakes in the middle overs. So Tornadoes will face the Falcons in the final tomorrow.

inside-edged to mid-wicket and Baig completes the single as the fielder throws wide of the stumps, the Tornadoes are through to the final as they are jumping around in joy. Meanwhile Dottin and Fatima are heartbroken.
