9.48pm Thanks for joining us tonight, we will be back with you tomorrow!

QDK: As the ball got older, it was taking a grip. It was difficult. I think it's a feel thing, a feel for the wicket to see what type of shots you can play. A wicket like this you play a lot straighter with the bat, pick the gaps. I think the bowlers did a really good job, specially up front. We thought it was a par score. Feels good to be match hero, been a bit of a while, it's my fourth game.

Quinton de Kock is the Player of the Match.

9.41pm That takes Southern Brave to second place. Their barrage of left-arm bowling helped restrict Superchargers to 128 and then the left-handed Quinton de Kock has pretty much done it all himself. 72 off 45 for him, looked a whole class above any other batter tonight on a fairly challenging surface. Adam Lyth was bowled round his legs first ball of the game, but he put the fear in Brave at the very end with his bowling. They've managed to hold on though, and have climbed the table.

95
6
Lyth to Jordan, SIX runs

launched over deep midwicket to seal the win. This is full at middle stump, he steps to the pitch of that and drills it sweetly with the turn

They're past the cut-off so the umpire's penalised Sueprchargers by asking them to bring a fielder into the circle

1
Lyth to de Kock, 1 run

short of a length and sliding on quickly at off stump, hurriedly stabs it through point

92

90
6
Raine to de Kock, SIX runs

carved over the long-off boundary! Slower ball it looks like, full and wide outside off. Gets down on one knee and swings cleanly. Mid-off was in so he had no inhibitions about this

89
Raine to de Kock, no run

short and gripping as it gets tight at middle stump, backs away and looks to slap it on the up. It comes straight back at the bowler

88
Raine to de Kock, no run

good length and down leg side, gets down with a shuffle to try and ramp this over short fine. He's beaten again and the umpire rules that is not a wide

87
Raine to de Kock, no run

slower short ball down leg side, waits and waits before having a slash at that. Misses

86

Raine to de Kock, 2 runs

low full toss at leg stump, leans in and expertly clips to deep midwicket's right

Lyth to Jordan, 1 run

short of a length and sliding across off stump, under-edge on the cut through point

84
Lyth to Jordan, no run

good length and turning into middle stump as he pushes on the front foot and gets a thick inside edge to short fine

83
1lb
Lyth to de Kock, 1 leg bye

appeal for lbw but that's sliding down. Good length and sliding right on as he looks to glance

82
2
Lyth to de Kock, 2 runs

full and at the stumps, backs away and looks to drive over extra cover. Gets a thick outside edge to sweeper's right. He loses his footing but does well to keep his eyes on the ball as he tumbles onto his backside

81
Lyth to de Kock, no run

ripped past the outside edge! Good length ball, drifting and dipping at off stump. QDK gets forward to defend and is late on that

CHANGE OF END

Surely Lyth bowls through here? Yes, looks like he is. Change of end first.

80
Lyth to Jordan, no run

full at off stump, dead-batted on the front foot

Lyth to de Grandhomme, OUT

big turn and another bowled dismissal for Lyth! He's a part-timer but he looks ominous right now. Some of it is down to shot selection. But once again, it's full, it's dipping, and it's got a lot of revs. CdG wants to whip this square from an off stump line, but it's spun past the inside edge to hit the middle stump

Colin de Grandhomme b Lyth 2 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100

2
Lyth to de Grandhomme, 2 runs

pulled powerfully past short midwicket. Short at middle stump, powered past the fielder's outstretched right arm. Deep midwicket slides to the left to stop it

Staying around the wicket to CdG

77
W
Lyth to Whiteley, OUT

spins past the drive to hit the top of middle! This is gorgeous, an offspinner's dream. Tossed up at around middle and leg from around the wicket. Gets it to drift, and then dip, after drawing him in to an on-drive. He wasn't anywhere close, mind you, it was an ill-advised shot. This has spun a long way to completely clean him up

Ross Whiteley b Lyth 1 (7m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25
76
Lyth to Whiteley, no run

full and into middle stump, gets forward and pushes into midwicket
