Karun Nair (Player of the match & Mysore Warriors Captain): "Absolutely I am very happy to come out and contribute to the team. One more game to go and one more innings to go. 

It was a good wicket. I think throughout the tournament we've got good wickets here at the KSCA. So really happy with that. I think it was just about putting pressure on the bowlers and then going from there. So really happy with how I played today and looking forward to tomorrow. 

[Speaking about Hardik Raj] I think he bowled beautifully in this tournament. He is someone to look out for. Really exciting. Congratulations to him. Keep it going. There are more guys coming up. But having said that, really happy with my team as well. 

[Speaking about tomorrow's final] It's going to be an exciting game for sure. I hope we get a lot more support, and a lot more people come and watch. I'm sure there will be a lot more support. And as usual, Mysore gets a lot of support. So really looking forward to tomorrow. Recover today and then come back tomorrow."

9:17 PM IST: Time for the post-match presentation. 
9:11 PM IST: We have had a cracking second semi-final in Bengaluru where it was a run feast to say the least. At the end of the night, Mysore Warriors hold their nerves and had too many runs on the board to win the game by 36 runs and qualify for the finals. They out batted their opposition today and credit to the Mystics for hanging in there and making a match out of it. But it was a bridge too far for the defending champions.   

Chasing 249 for the win, Gulbarga Mystics came out all guns blazing with Impact Player Chethan LR scored 28 off 14 balls. Aneesh scored 23 off 11 balls. But it was Macneil Noronha show as he stole the show with his 61 off 34 balls. He was ably supported by Khalid who scored a quickfire 54 off 29 balls. But the innings fell away when it mattered. Amit Verma scored 11 off 7 balls. Avinash got 11 while skipper Vyshak Vijaykumar had fun out there scoring 16* off 8 balls. 5 extras were given by the fielding side as the Mystics ended with 212/8 in 20 overs.  

It was a tough day for the bowlers in general for both teams on a flat deck. Jagadeesha Suchith was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2/26 in 4 overs. A couple of wickets apiece for Monish Reddy, Gautam Mishra, and Wadhwani. They went the distance but had enough runs to play with.  

Earlier in the game, Mysore Warriors were put into bat first by Gulbarga Mystics. The openers Karthik SU and R Samarth got off to a solid start putting on 82 for the first wicket. Karthik scored 41 off 23 balls. But what followed was the Karun Nair and Samarth show. Samarth held the innings together and scored 80 off 50 balls but he was overshadowed by skipper Karun Nair's innings. The skipper scored an unbeaten 107* off 42 balls and put on 148 runs in quick time and took the game away from the opposition. Manoj Bhandage had fun out there and scored 18* off 5 balls at the end of the innings. Just 2 extras given by the fielding side as Mysore Warriors scored a mammoth 248/2 in 20 overs. 

Nothing much to talk about the Mystics bowling performance. Hardik Raj was the pick of the bowlers as he kept it tight and gave away 28 runs in 4 overs. He did not pick a wicket but by far was the best bowler on display. Abhilash Shetty and Avinash got a wicket each but they like the rest of the bowling went the distance and were clobbered by the brilliance of Karun Nair and company. 

So, a win for Mysore Warriors as they advance to the finals where they will play Hubli Tigers in tomorrow's final. Stick around for the presentations.
