Fall of wickets: 1-62 (Ryan Rickelton, 6.6 ov), 2-75 (Liam Livingstone, 9.6 ov), 3-81 (Sam Curran, 11.4 ov), 4-114 (Dewald Brevis, 15.2 ov), 5-148 (Rassie van der Dussen, 18.1 ov), 6-151 (Kieron Pollard, 18.4 ov), 7-161 (George Linde, 19.2 ov), 8-163 (Kagiso Rabada, 19.5 ov), 9-163 (Nuwan Thushara, 19.6 ov) • DRS
18.1 to HE van der Dussen, van der Dussen pulls the slower ball to square leg straight down the throat of the fielder. He'd been deprived of the strike of late and never quite found his timing here, and Ackermann takes a simple catch. 148/5
18.4 to KA Pollard, tried to be too clever by half and pays the price. Another ultra slow delivery, and Pollard wasn't quite sure what to do with it. Initially wanted to smear it through the onside before looking to dink it over the keeper. Salt takes a brilliant one handed diving catch to end Pollard's destructive cameo. 151/6
6.6 to RD Rickelton, carved it through the cover region but he's gone! Low sharp catch at cover-point, sensational grab that breaks the partnership. 62/1
9.6 to LS Livingstone, top-edged, and it's a simple catch for the keeper. He moved towards the offside and attempted to clobber it over midwicket, only to sky it as Phil Salt lets it nestle into his gloves. 75/2
11.4 to SM Curran, another swipe, another top edge! Curran joins his England teammate back to the pavilion! It was the overspin that did for him, and Dupavillon had to readjust at the last moment to snare a sharp diving catch as he reckoned with the wind. 81/3
15.2 to D Brevis, gets a faint edge on it through to the keeper, and Brevis departs as well. The umpire didn't seem to hear the edge, though just about everyone else did. It was sent up for review, and the spike is obvious. The Capitals strike again. 114/4
19.2 to GF Linde, holes out the very next delivery. Opens the face and tries to guide it over long-off, but doesn't get the power to clear the man, holing out to Will Jacks on the boundary instead.. 161/7
19.5 to K Rabada, one-handed slog to cow corner from Rabada, where a simple catch is taken. It looked really good, and sounded just as nice. But he got more height than elevation on it and MICT lose their eighth. 163/8
19.6 to N Thushara, swing and a miss, and Thusara's off stump is sent on a cartwheel! Five wickets in the last two overs peg MICT back, but a late cameo from Pollard ensured they managed to get up and above 160, which didn't look likely about six overs earlier. Join us in about 15 minutes as we take stock of how the Capitals respond. 163/9

TOTAL19.4 Ov (RR: 8.49)167/6
Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Phil Salt, 1.1 ov), 2-11 (Will Jacks, 2.1 ov), 3-45 (Rilee Rossouw, 6.3 ov), 4-60 (Kyle Verreynne, 8.5 ov), 5-78 (Colin Ackermann, 11.5 ov), 6-133 (Theunis de Bruyn, 17.3 ov) • DRS
17.3 to TB de Bruyn, chips it to Pollard at long-off! Tried to make room but the bowler followed him, and he hit through the line without the power required. Knew from the moment he hit it he would be on his way, and MICT back on top now. 133/6
1.1 to PD Salt, and he strikes first ball. Was a length ball outside off. Salt goes after it, only to get an outside edge to the keeper. 9/1
2.1 to WG Jacks, and he too strikes first ball - gets rid of Jacks. A length ball around off, just shaping away. Jacks hangs his bat out and gets an outside edge. The first slip fielder takes an excellent catch, tumbling to his left. 11/2
6.3 to RR Rossouw, full around off and Rossouw goes aerial towards long-off. But instead of hitting it, he ends up slicing it. Rabada settles under it and takes the rebound after the first attempt pops up. 45/3
8.5 to K Verreynne, is this the game? A length ball at the stumps. Verreynne goes back and goes for the pull towards long-on. But hardly any elevation or power behind it and Rabada takes a simple catch at long-on. 60/4
11.5 to CN Ackermann, top-edged into the deep to Sam Curran at midwicket, straight down the throat of the man. It's death by spin here for the Capitals as Ackermann falls as well, and MICT are now firmly on top. 78/5
