7:22pm Right. That will be a wrap from us for this game. The action, though, does not stop. The Delhi Capitals are taking on the Mumbai Indians and that game will begin in less than ten minutes' time. Do join us for that as well. Until next time, this is me (Shashwat) signing off on behalf of Sudeep and Venkat. Goodbye and take care!

6:52pm Phew, that was some game. The Giants began their bowling innings in the best possible manner, sending Healy back early and getting the better of Navgire and Devika inside the powerplay. But just like they did against Mumbai, Harris and McGrath joined hands to ensure that the chase was not derailed. Both bagged fifties, with Harris, in particular, taking her side to the cusp of victory. Ecclestone then applied the finishing touches, ensuring that the Warriorz have now secured a spot in the playoffs.

The Giants, meanwhile, will be ruing their inability to capitalize on crucial moments, not just today but throughout the tournament. They picked up three wickets in the powerplay but could not build on it. Earlier in the day, they found themselves on course to get to 185-190, only for them to score 12 runs in the last two overs and hand over the initiative to the Warriorz. Their season is now done and dusted and while there were a few positives, they would largely be disappointed with how their campaign panned out.

Rana to Ecclestone, FOUR runs

Ecclestone sends UP Warriorz to the playoffs, and sends Gujarat Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore crashing out of the WPL! Full and outside off stump. Ecclestone, though, has worked this one out beautifully. She walks across her stumps and paddles it through the vacant fine leg region to seal the deal!

2 off 2 now. The tension is palpable. Super Over anyone?

Rana to Ecclestone, 1 run, OUT

low full toss outside off stump. Ecclestone advances and clinks it down the ground. Simran is stretching every muscle to get back for the second but has she made it? We go upstairs to find out! Looks like she has not made her ground! Simran has to go, but Ecclestone remains on strike!

Simran Shaikh run out (Gardner/Rana) 1 (2b 0x4 0x6 7m) SR: 50

It is all happening here. 3 off 3 now

19.3

Rana to Simran Shaikh, 1 run

back of a length delivery outside off stump. Simran heaves at it and inside edges it onto her thigh pad. Ecclestone calls her through, and Simran has to sprawl across the turf to make her ground

19.2

Rana to Ecclestone, 1 run

full toss on off stump. Ecclestone can't believe her luck but ends up tugging it straight to deep mid wicket. Ecclestone is absolutely livid with herself

19.1
2
Rana to Ecclestone, 2 runs

full delivery at the stumps. Ecclestone comes down the track and nurdles the ball into the on side before scampering across for a couple of runs

Seven needed off the final over. Can Ecclestone take the Warriorz into the playoffs? Sneh Rana to bowl the final over

Chuvi: "The greatest aspect about Grace Harris's knock is that she has been two steps ahead of the bowlers. Knew what was coming next!!! Fantastic knock !!!"

dropped, oh my! Full delivery just outside off stump. Simran smashes it back to the bowler, who gets two hands to it but can't cling on

Garth to Harris, OUT

and it does the trick! Harris departs! Full and slanted across on off stump. Harris looks to hammer it into next week but gets this one wrong slightly. She swings too early and chalks it straight down long on's throat! There is still some life left in this game!

Garth to Harris, 1 run

full and outside off stump. Drilled down the ground to long off for a single

19 runs needed off the final 12 balls. Surely Harris will take the Warriorz past the finish line? She is up against Garth in the penultimate over

Gardner to Ecclestone, 1 run

is that a drop? Flighted on a full length on middle and off stump. Ecclestone has a swing at it and mistimes it terribly. Sneh comes rushing on from the long on fence but can't hold on
