So, that's it from our coverage of the ILT20 game between MI Emirates and Abu Dhabi Knight Riders. Hope you have enjoyed our coverage and it's time for us to say good bye. This is myself, Saptak Sanyal signing off on the behalf of my co-commentator Deepak Prakash and our scorer/analyst Chandan Kumar Singh. Stay safe, good night.
Trent Boult (Player of the Match): "He's always got advice for me, so, yeah, full credit to Danny Morrison.  I'm trying to swing the ball and pitch the ball up, but most of the time I'm going full tilt. So, yeah, it was nice to get a couple moving tonight. And as a collective, I thought the boys bowled very well. To keep aside as star-studded as that under 100 runs, it was a great effort. 

[Talking about his rhythm] I think when you see a bowler in good rhythm, for me, that's down to two things. It's about technique, it's about timing. So it all comes from a run-up. So any kid out there who is struggling with a run-up or timing at the crease, it's very important to just take it nice and slow and gather your pace as you get to the crease. So it was advice I got early in my career and I've been lucky to have a good run-up over the years. 

Nicky P is a great captain and I touched on it with Danny this afternoon. 
We have some very experienced T20 cricketers in our team. Someone like DJ Bravo is a great guy to bounce ideas off.  

Yeah, I've been very lucky with the road and injuries and stuff like that, but there's no substitute for hard work, I think. I like to get in the gym, I like to do the work.

Hosein] I jokingly told him I didn't like it because he's stealing my first over, but he's a guy with tremendous skill, swings the ball nicely. Although he's primarily a spin bowler, the whole team has been great to gel with, and I think we've got a team that can go very far in this tournament."
Player of the Match: Trent Boult 
Nicholas Pooran (MI Emirates Captain)- "Tonight we really wanted to win the game. We were defeated heavily in the first game in Dubai and boys accepted the challenge and came back stronger.

We are really happy to have Trent Boult in our team. I think he just used his experience and he just swung the ball tonight and got everything right. Akeal has performed well in the last game too. Our bowlers are doing a commendable job so far.

Our team is in a good shape. We have to be as humble as possible and continue our performance."
Sunil Narine (Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Captain): "I think when you lose four wickets in the power play, you're more or less on the back foot. So I think the key to this game would have been trying to accumulate and soak up a few dot balls and get out of the powerplay with two wickets max. 

We need to forget about it as soon as possible because we have a game in two days' time. So it'll be good to get over this as soon as possible and come out ready for your next game."

Biggest six of the Match: Kusal Perera (101m). 
Time for the post-match presentation.....
22:25 IST and 20:55 Local Time | The MI Emirates have disdainfully defeated the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders by 9 wickets and with 71 balls remaining in the game.

After coming to bat first, Abu Dhabi Knight Riders were reduced to 22 for 5 losing all the top order batters. Trent Boult and Akeal Hosein abolished the top order with their tremendous line and length. Andres Gous(3), Alishan Sharafu(10), Sam Hain(0), Michael Kyle-Pepper(5) and Laurie Evans(1)- all were proved to be a failure today. Imad Wasim got out scoring 7 after struggling for 11 balls. The scorecard would have been more sorry looking for them if Andre Russell was not there. Russell swung his bat here and there and scored 48 runs off 25 balls with 3 boundaries and 4 maximums to help his team post 95 on the board. Impact-sub Ravi Bopara, David Willey, Sunil Narine-everybody failed in the lower order. 

Trent Boult took 3 wickets giving just 14 runs away. Rohid Khan also took 3 wickets, Akeal Hosein had two dismissals beside his name. Fazalhaq Farooqi and Salamkheil took a wicket each. All the wickets were taken by the left handers.

Coming to chase the run, the MI Emirates started the innings with a flurry of boundaries and Mohammad Waseem and Kusal Perera took the bowlers on right from the start. Perera got out scoring 22 runs off 13 balls hitting 2 boundaries and 2 maximums. But, Muhammad Waeem stayed unbeaten on 26 off 20 balls to see his team go through the finishing line. Waseem was well accompanied by Nicholas Pooran. Pooran added 39 runs facing just 16 balls with five towering maximums and a solitary boundary.

In the end, MI Emirates got a comprehensive victory.
A thumping win for MI Emirates as they win by 9 wickets and 71 balls to spare.
