Ambati Rayudu and Stuart Binny are the Men of the Match and to sign off, Raymond is over the moon and is recording what Binny says. As for the Badshahs, I am sure they will come all guns blazing in the final at Hyderabad, which is on Sunday. Be sure to join us then. Till then it's night here from all of us

Heroes win the first final by six runs to hand the Badshahs their first defeat off the tournament. But it was a close match all the way as Badshahs like Tigers yesterday were in with more than a chance till the last over. In fact Badshahs were in with a chance to tie the game with a ball to go.

Everyone, from the Heroes team contributed in one way or the other to see their team through
