11:15pm Right. That will be all from us for tonight. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do tune in tomorrow as the Bhilwara Kings take on the Gujarat Giants in another clutch clash. Till then, stay safe, goodbye and goodnight!

Hamilton Masakadza, Player of the Match: I think I struggled a bit at the start but it started coming out of the middle towards the end. I thought Solomon gave us a good start. It is always easier when he is going at that rate. I tried a few shots and fortunately it came off. It was top-class watching Murali bowl today.

Harbhajan Singh, Manipal Tigers captain: (On play-off chances) There is a scope but for that, we have to play better cricket. And of course, I have to win the toss at some stage. With so much dew, it becomes impossible at times. I am still confident we will go out and give our best shot and see if we can qualify. I think when we were 150/1 in 18 overs, we should have got a few more runs. I could not hit and Corey could not hit. We were about 20 runs short. They outplayed us in all departments. Hamilton was amazing at the top.

Gautam Gambhir, India Capitals captain: Very clinical performance. You have to give credit to the bowlers. To restrict them in the last 10 balls was a great effort. (On his shots) It felt good but have to convert these starts into a big score. Always a luxury to have power hitters down the order. The way Rajat bowled the last over was phenomenal. Restricting them to 161 was perhaps where we won control of the game. I think T20 cricket is about seeing who bowls the tough overs. Liam is someone who bowls the tough overs and he has done that really well for us. We have guys who can perform in two or three departments really well.

Well, that turned into a fairly regulation run-chase for the Capitals. Gambhir set the tone early with a couple of boundaries before Mire got into the act. Thereafter, Masakadza took matters into his own hands and he was ably supported by Taylor and Nurse. The Tigers did not have many moments to rejoice. No bowler, apart from Muralitharan, was able to keep a lid on the run-scoring and with only 161 on the board, they fell behind the eight-ball quite early. They still have a game left but you feel they will not be very pleased with how tonight or in general, this tournament has panned out for them. As for the Capitals, well, they sit pretty at the top of the table and on tonight's evidence, might even be favourites to win the entire thing.

that will be that! In the slot outside off stump and Nurse finishes it off with a massive smash over deep mid wicket. A fitting end to what has been a pretty dominant batting display by the Capitals!

Anderson gets a bowl now! Can he produce something special?

The final time-out of the game is upon us and the Capitals are well and truly ahead of the game. Unless the Tigers trigged an almighty collapse, I fear this game might be beyond them

Into the last five overs now, and the Capitals need 25 runs. If the Tigers can get rid of Masakadza, things could get interesting!

Murali to Taylor, OUT

Murali gets Taylor! Flighted on a length outside off stump again, and this time, Taylor can't resist the temptation to have a slog at it. But he is again deceived in the air, meaning that he has an airy swing at it. The ball kisses the edge and goes through to the keeper, who holds onto a sharp catch

14.2
Murali to Taylor, no run

huge appeal, not given! Flighted on a length on middle and off stump. Taylor falls over and plays all around it as the ball spins into him and raps him on the front pad. Might have snuck down the leg side

Muralitharan to finish his quota
