9.06pm: The ball was flying on the highveld tonight, hey? Sunrisers prevail in a 400-run footstomper, and they will take on Pretoria Capitals in Joburg on Saturday. JSK needed 79 from the last four overs, and almost made a game of it - Reeza Hendricks played an outstanding innings, but unlike Sunrisers they were unable to recover from being two down inside the first couple of overs (and yes, they might regret Gerald Coetzee's 17-ball 12 after he was promoted to open). That is a wrap from us for tonight, join us again in a couple of days to see who will be crowned SA20 champions. For now, from myself, Danyal and Ranjith, it's good night. Byeeeee!

Baartman to Shepherd, SIX runs

blasted over long-off, one final scream of defiance! Shephard has played a blinder of a cameo, but Sunrisers had enough on the board, winning by 14 runs for a place in the final

19.5
1
Baartman to Makhanya, 1 run

full and drilled back to the bowler, who nearly manages to divert the ball on to the non-striker's stumps for a run out

In walks Sibonelo Makhanya

Baartman to Hendricks, OUT

pitched up, holes out to long-off! No hundred for Hendricks, and this looks to be curtains for JSK! Fine fighting knock but this was a tired shot, and it's swallowed by the man out on the rope, Carse

Reeza Hendricks c Carse b Baartman 96 (54b 11x4 4x6 86m) SR: 177.77

Mo: "Those 15 balls wasted on Coetzee coming back to haunt them."

19.3
1
Baartman to Shepherd, 1 run

fired in full and straight, whipped leg side. Sunrisers think they might be safe now...

19.2
2
Baartman to Shepherd, 2 runs

high full toss, scooped leg side... is it a no-ball?! Neither Rossington nor Jansen went for the catch, after they seemed to collide. And after checking the replay, the umpires are happy it was a legal delivery! Just dipped in time, I think

19.1

Baartman to Hendricks, 1 bye

length ball, swing and a miss!

One over to go, and JSK are back ahead on the comparison... but Sunrisers had a nine-ball, 27-run final over, remember

18.6

Magala to Shepherd, FOUR runs

moves across early, Magala pitches it up outside off, clattered through backward square! Came off the inside edge and squirted away for another boundary

Six sixes in the last 15 balls

18.5

Magala to Shepherd, SIX runs

low full toss, heaved to leg! Just dips enough to avoid being a no-ball, but Shepherd gets hold it for a flat six to deep backward square leg

18.4
1
Magala to Hendricks, 1 run

pitched up, low full toss and Hendricks can only dink to long-on

18.3
1
Magala to Shepherd, 1 run

full and straight, hauled leg side... was there for the slot-ball slam, but didn't connect!

Sachin: "This has turned into a pool darts contest !!"

18.2
Magala to Shepherd, no run

beautifully bowled! Magala nails the yorker, right on the crease and Shepherd can only jam it back to the bowler

length ball, swing and a miss! Carse gets out of the over with a dot

Another replacement is run out. Hendricks belatedly catching up with the six-hitting

17.5

Carse to Hendricks, SIX runs

pitched up, swung leg side... in the pool again! Hendricks smites up and over the leg side, clears the safety net, and the ball ends up in the water one more

We're going to need a replacement ball here. JSK clinging to the tails of the RRR, 50 needed from 14 balls

17.4
6
Carse to Hendricks, SIX runs

hooked into the pool! Hendricks gets hold of another short-length cutter and cleans it out over deep backward square leg - there's a pool beyond the boundary, and it lands in the drink!

Carse to Shepherd, 1 run

back of a length, possible pace off and Shepherd swats a pull
