That's all from the Eliminator Clash between the Gujarat Giants and the Bhilwara Kings. The Kings have completed a treble against the Giants and have stormed into the finals. They will meet India Capitals in the grand finale on Wednesday at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. Do join us for that clash and for all other cricketing action across the globe in our network.

I am Ayan Chatterjee signing off on behalf of my esteemed co-commentator Ninaad Dixit, alongside scorer/analyst Paras Yadav. Stay safe, happy, and cool. Goodnight and Cheers from all of us.  
Irfan Pathan (Bhilwara Kings Captain): "We wanted to bowl first. I know this is a different pitch and it will turn. We wanted to trust our batters and wanted to back ourselves chasing but the way both the openers have batted along with Porterfield, has been brilliant and once you get a 91 run opening partnership, you get comfortable in the chase. Sreesanth bowled really well, some yorkers as well and the way Fidel Edwards came back. We have lot of injuries but if we can get some replacements then good, if not we will give our best. I will bowl if needed in the finals."
Parthiv Patel ( Gujarat Giants Captain): "Not really. I thought 194 was a good score. Our aim was 180-190. But our bowling was bad and that let us down as we lacked execution. Yes, from the start we got, I agree we were 10 runs short. But even then I felt 194 was a good score and should have been defended. I feel an overall good tournament, it's a pity that we didn't reach the final." 
William Porterfield (Legend of the Match): "We wanted a good start and maximise the momentum we got in the middle as we were chasing 195. Its been great with Yusuf, Irfan and Shane Watson coming behind you, you know that you can play your strokes."
Time for the post-match presentation ceremony.  
Rajesh Bishnoi hits the winning runs as the Bhilwara Kings reach the finals of the Legends League Cricket 2022 as they beat the Gujarat Giants by 6 wickets with 9 balls to spare. A superb chase on what was another good surface on offer at Jodhpur. 

Chasing a stiff target of 195 for the win, the Kings were off to a flyer as they scored 73 in the powerplay with William Porterfield taking the bowlers to the cleaners. The opening duo of William Porterfield and Morne van Wyk put on 91 for the first wicket inside 9 overs. Morne van Wyk was the first one to go for 31 off 18 balls. William Porterfield top-scored with 60 off 43 balls. Yusuf Pathan chipped in with 21 off 11 balls while his younger brother Irfan Pathan chipped in with 22 off 13 balls. But it was Shane Watson's unbeaten 48 off 24 balls alongside Rajesh Bishnoi's unbeaten 5 off 2 balls that took the side over the line. 

Aravind got a couple of wickets despite being taken to the cleaners. KP Appanna was the pick of the bowlers with 1-21 in 4 overs. Graeme Swann picked up a wicket as well. The bowlers, in general, didn't have any clue as to how to stop the marauding batting display by the Kings. 

Earlier in the game, Gujarat Giants after being put into bat first did not get off to a great start as they lost the Universe Boss Chris Gayle for 5 and skipper Parthiv Patel for 9. Dilshan (36 off 26), and Yashpal Singh ( 43 off 35) put on 45 for the third wicket before Dilshan fell. Kevin O’Brien gave the impetus to the innings coming in at 6 top-scored with 45 off 24 balls. Jeevan Mendis’ 24 off 10 balls alongside 16 extras given away by the Bhilwara Kings took the score to a competitive 194-9 in 20 overs.

Sreesanth was the pick of the bowlers for the Bhilwara Tigers as he had exceptional figures of 2-28 in 4 overs. A wicket apiece for Fidel Edwards, Monty Panesar, Rahul Sharma, Sudeep Tyagi, and Tim Bresnan who came on as a super substitute. Edwards was struggling with his fitness as he incurred a hamstring issue. Rahul Sharma and Monty Panesar kept it under check by not giving away too many runs.  

A win for the Bhilwara Kings over the Gujarat Giants by 6 wickets with 9 balls to spare as they complete the treble over the Giants. Stick around for the post-match presentation ceremony that comes your way soon.
