yes he can! Dockrell gets a juicy delivery on the pads, he gets a little tickle in the ball and it runs fine to the boundary. The Lightning win!
The Lightning got off to a shaky start with the loss of their openers, Tucker came in and played a very well to hold the innings together. It was a shame that he fell so close to his century.
There could have been another wobble but Simi Singh and Kane came together, under a barrage of short balls, to get the Lightning within touching distance.
Before the Captain came out to win it.
The Knights bowlers impressed in spells and Delany was really charging in throughout his second spell.
If the Lightning had to chase another 30 to 40 runs then it could have been a nervy finish.
Its been a great day of cricket and now we only have one more day of action before the Men's season draws to a close. We are back down here at Malahide on Monday as the Warriors are the visitors. I hope that you will be able to join me then.
It might have turned cold but the ground is a sight as the sun sends the shadows across the ground and with blue skies above, this is Justin saying goodnight.
Dockrell is on strike as the batters crossed. Can the Captain hit the winning runs?
Kane looks to finish it off with another big hit, the ball flies high in the air and its heading down to long leg. Getkate is back on the rope, looks down to make sure he isn't going to go over the rope and takes the catch
driven hard back past the bowler, it runs away to the boundary. The Lightning are almost there, maybe they are getting cold out there?
Kane charges down towards Delany and swings hard again at the ball, takes the top edge and runs away fine. Thuds into the hoardings behind the rope
short ball again. Simi is seeing the ball very well now, there is a fielder down there in the shadow and he stops the ball
driven hard down the ground, Ellison turns and gives chase but it seems to keep going away from him
toko short and goes down the legside, must have flicked the pad on the way through
Delany to bowl out now, the Lightning racing towards the target. Only need 15 now, can they get it in this over.
and that's an even better shot. Kane advances down towards the bowler and seems to have his feet off the ground as he pulls the ball to the wide long-on boundary
its too short again and this time Kane is waiting for it, pulls it hard towards cow corner. No fielder in the deep so its a safe shot to play, races away off the bat
short ball, slow ball. Sits up again off the pitch and its pulled down to long leg
short ball, gets up on his toes and angles the bat to play the ball down to third man
back of a length ball, clipped off the hip and down to long leg
Wilson comes up behind the stumps
clipped off the pads and out to deep square leg
Adair is back again
driven through the covers to keep the strike
defended into the legside, short leg fields
clips the ball towards mid-wicket, Ellison throws at the non-strikers end and Pretorius is backing up, he somehow lets the ball through him and they come back for a second
too straight and Simi clips the ball to deep square leg, the Knights now have three fielders out there in the deep
pulls it down to long leg
digs the ball down into the pitch, it goes wide of off-stump and Kane works the ball towards the backward point boundary
far too short and get punished. Simi rocks back in the crease and pulls the ball through mid-wicket, just stands there and admires his work
