11:55 PM IST| That's a wrap from our side.
I, Amit Das, along with my co-commentator Prince Suman and scorer/analyst Chandan Kumar Singh, am bidding you all goodbye! Thanks for joining in, do join our other cricket coverages. Don't go anywhere we'll be having more contests coming your way. Till then, goodbye, see you soon ....  
Shane Watson ( Captain, World Giants ) : "130 would have been great. Mpofu changed his pace, Best provided him the needy support. Looking forward to the three-day break as we need to recover. We need to enjoy each other's company as well."  
Shahid Afridi ( Captain, Asia Lions) : "Amla, Kallis both legends of the game. Though would have liked to restrict them to 120. In this kind of pitch, we have to bowl slower balls. Amir missed that. Looking forward to play against India."
Hashim Amla (Player of the Match): "Although it didn't feel that way, I'm glad it appeared that way. I'm happy with Kallis' batting approach and think he deserves the prize. good to reach a score that is competitive. The wicket was difficult, but once we gained momentum, we were able to score freely and eventually amassed sufficient runs."
Stay tuned for the post-match presentation.....  
11:36 PM IST| Mpofu, Best stars to win the match for World Giants, as they beat Asia Lions by 20 runs 
                     Earlier in the night, Asia Lions won the toss and put World Giants to bat first. The Giants had quite start with the bat as they failed to capitalize on the powerplay. In the third over itself, they lost Gayle due to a miscommunication in between the wickets, then skipper Watson played an ordinary shot to get out. From there on, Amla held a partnership with his long-time teammate Jacques Kallis as they batted along the innings to post a respectable total on the board.
                      They took time to settle in, then they started playing shots once Shahid Afridi came to bowl. Their partnership lasted for 105 runs as Amla got out to a ripper off Amir. In the end, Brien's 9 run cameo took the score to 150. Abdur Razzak restricted run-scoring quite a bit along with his counterparts.
                      As the second innings unfolded, Tharanga got dismissed by Mpofu after struggling for quite a bit. But from there on, his long-time opening partner Dilshan took the game away with counter-attacking shots, But they kept on losing wickets courtesy of Mpofu and Best. They didn't let Perera, Hafeez, or Misbah settle in. Skipper Afridi came in to smash bowls out of the park, he looked in great touch though. But Binga dismissed him to get his team into the zone. Lions lost the plot as they kept on losing wickets at regular intervals,
                      At one point, it looked like they would get the job done well inside 20 overs but they fall short by 20 runs. Christopher Mpofu had an incredible outing today as he not only picked up three wickets with his own bowling but also pulled up two stunners with direct throws at crucial junctures of the game. They are through to the finals to defend their title as the other two teams are ready to face off to get a pass to a cracker final. Watson would be proud of his boys today. A clinical bowling performance has got them through.  
19.1 T Best to A Razzaq
W That's it!! With the wicket, World Giants won the match by 20 runs!! Short of the length ball on the middle stump, Razzaq looks to hit it but gets the leading edge of the bat as the ball flies in the air and goes straight into the hands of Kallis who is stationed at mid-off.
19.1 T Best to A Razzaq
WD Length ball wide outside off, Razzaq fails to connect it and the umpire signals wide.
22 runs needed, and Razzaq on the strike. He can win you matches from these situations.
