That's all we got for you. Do join us tomorrow for another cracking contest. For now, you can switch your tabs and follow the Hundred. I'm Akshay Bhide, signing off on behalf of my colleagues Kingshuk Kusari and AryaSekhar Chakraborty. Good Night.
Maan Bafna | MoM: It means a lot to me. My preparations have been good for the last two months. During the lockdown I was training at home and it helped me a lot.
Maan Bafna is awarded the Man of the Match award for his match-winning knock of 72 from 51 balls.
Baba Aparajith | Losing skipper: We lost key moments in the game. If one of the batters would have carried on, we could have had 165. We started really well with the ball. Five overs and 50 runs, we thought we could pull it off. He (Arjun) has been showing good signs in the nets and has a good bat swing. T20 format is such where you need to win the key moments.
Time for the presentation.
Akshay: It was Tamizhans skipper Mohammed who won the toss and opted to bowl first. The Nellai Royal Kings didn’t have the best of the starts as skipper Baba Aparajith departed early in the innings. Suryaprakash from the other end was going nicely as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Suryaprakash and Indrajith added 45 for the third wicket but both were dismissed in a single over and the Tamizhans were back in the game. The Kings lost their way in the middle. It was Arjun Murthy who played a cameo in the end which ensured that they posted a competitive total on the board. Mohammed was the pick of the bowlers for the Tamizhans as he picked three wickets at an economy of six. Rajkumar also picked three scalps.
Akshay: With 149 to chase, the Tamizhans suffered an early blow in the chase as Ashik was removed by Ajith Kumar in the second over. He picked his second wicket as Raheja was dismissed in the fourth over. Siddharth and Bafna led the recovery for the Tamizhans. They put 53 for the third wicket until Siddharth was dismissed by the Nellai skipper Baba Aparajith. Mann Bafna kept Tamizhans in the chase but lacked support from the other end. He stood tall against the Nellai bowlers as he scored his half-century and kept hitting the boundaries at crunch situations. In the end, it was havoc for them as they lost two wickets in the last over with one needed to win but Bafna ensured that they chased down the total with one ball to spare.
Akshay: What an end to a thrilling contest here. And as the game finishes, the rain has arrived at the Chepauk stadium. This is what T20 is all about. It is never over until it's all over. Bafna for Tamizhans held his nerve and ensured that they get across the line. He remained unbeaten on 72 off 51 balls and fittingly hits the winning runs. It was heck of a contest in the end and Tamizhans have managed to win it by 3 wickets with one ball to spare. With this win, they move to the fourth spot in the points table.
19.5 B Aparajith to Bafna
1 Finally the Tamizhans get across the line. Aparajith bowls it fuller on the stumps, Bafna slogs at it across the line and gets an inside edge towards short third man for a single. This seals the game for them as they beat Nellai Royal Kings by 3 wickets.
19.4 B Aparajith to Bafna
0 Fuller this time around off, Bafna hits it straight to mid off. Dot ball.

19.2 B Aparajith to S Aravind
W BOWLED' EM!!! Baba Aparajith strikes as Aravind fails to get his team across the line. Aparajith bowls it fuller on the stumps and Aravind looks to work it in the leg side but misses miserably and the ball crashes on the stumps. Too little too late for the Nellai Royal Kings.
19.1 B Aparajith to Bafna
1 Baba Aparajith starts with a tossed up delivery outside off, Bafna sweeps it in the leg side for a single. The batsmen thought of the second but the fielder was quick to the ball.

18.6 Yadav to S Aravind
4 FOUR!!!! Poor ball from Yadav and he pays a heavy price for it. Bowls it down leg and all Aravind had to do was get bat to it as he sweeps it over the man at short fine leg and it races away to the fence. This should seal the game for the Tamizhans. 2 required from the last over.
18.6 Yadav to S Aravind
WD Yadav bowls it way down leg as Aravind misses the sweep. Wide signaled.
