Sensational finish and Lightning have found a new T20 player in Matt Ford, son of the Ireland head coach. He has just score 34 off 13 balls, including 10 off the last two to win the game off the last ball.

Knights because of their bonus points win leads the table ahead of their match against the Reds tomorrow - while Lightning face Warriors in the late game. Hopefully more excitement tomorrow, the first game starts 1t 11.30. Please rejoin me then
