7:38 PM IST, Local Time | Well that's all for today folks! Gujarat Giants with a thrilling win! Switch tabs to join our LIVE coverage of the 2nd T20I between India and Australia! 

This is Anirudh Modi, signing off along with my co-commentator Ayan Chatterjee, and our scorer/analyst Paras Yadav! See you on the next one! 
Jacques Kallis (Gujarat Giants Captain): "It was a bit too tight, haha. The last two games we have finished really well with the ball. We got off to a fantastic start with the bat and that gave us an opportunity to get ahead and just get enough to win this. 

I thought pace off was the way too go but unfortunately we had a few injuries and had to make up for that but the spinners bowled really well. Yeah, Bhatia got injured but I hope it's nothing but a twitch and he played really well to give us the score we wanted. 

Nicely came through the pressure today and really happy to win this. Haven't been to Jammu before so looking forward to the next game."
Suresh Raina (Urbanrisers Hyderabad Captain): "I think very close game. Sreesanth and spinners bowled well. Trego almost did it for us. It was close.

We gave too much runs and then we started well and lost it in the end. Sreesanth bowled well. Nagar got out to a poor shot. We were close and were one shot away.

We will stick to the basics and come back stronger. I am happy that we competed. Thank you and I will see you there in Jammu."
Sreesanth | Legend of the Match (Gujarat Giants): "First of all I have to be grateful to this league and this is for my family. Thanks to the team for giving me the opportunity to play this year. 

I saw Guptill doing his workout in Ranchi and I said you should not be playing in this league, and now look at him. But he is an excellent player, always looks to play positively but it was a good ploy to get his wicket and thanks to Raval and Kallis for planning that too. 

Thanks to my wife too, whenever she has come I have done well and she has come today and I have done extremely well."

7:18 PM IST, Local Time | Gujarat Giants win by 1 run! Taylor finds the boundary off the last ball but they needed a MAXIMUM to win this! A scintillating run-chase from Urbanrisers Hyderabad but they fall short by a solitary run!  

Gujarat Giants won the toss and elected to bat first,
 after the early fall of Kallis, Richard Levi destroyed the Urbanrisers Hyderabad in the powerplay. By the time he was done, he had scored 49 runs off just 19 deliveries and the Giants' scoreboard read 80/2 after 7.4 overs. 

Gayle and O'Brien's downfall brought about a slow period for the Giants but Rajat Bhatia's unbeaten late charge of 39 runs off 20 balls and Raval's mature cameo of an unbeaten 29 runs off 23 balls ensured the Giants registered a good total of 193/5 after their 20 overs

Stuart Binny was the pick of the bowlers for his figures of 2/28 from his quota of 4 overs. 

Come the chase, Sreesanth gave the Giants the start they desired when he dismissed Martin Guptill for a single run in the second over. Gurkeerat's cameo of 22 runs from 17 balls gave Smith the opportunity to settle down and once Gurkeerat had departed, Smith started belting the Giants bowler before falling just after scoring 50 runs from 39 balls. 

With Raina's downfall, the Urbanrisers looked to be in big trouble but Trego had other ideas. He blazed away the Giants in the slog overs to reach 59 balls from just 25 deliveries before Sreesanth struck in the last over to pull the game back and eventually defend the total to win the game by just 1 run! 

Sreesanth and Benn were the picks with both getting 2/28 from 3 overs each.
