Time to sign off from our live coverage of this game between Dubai Capitals and Abu Dhabi Knight Riders. I am AkshayaKrishna Polya, who, alongside my co-commentator Hiren Kumar and scorer/analyst Yogesh Kumar, brought you all the live-action of this enthralling game of cricket. We will meet again. Until then, its cheers!
Sam Billings (POTM): "When you are batting in the middle order, it is about managing the game. I think it is a lot easier when you are ahead of the game, thanks to Fraser-McGurk and Gurbaz. The two young lads at the top played beautifully and set up a nice platform where we could continue the momentum.

The toss does play a factor; it gets pretty wet in the second innings. As long as we keep improving and the attitude is correct, we'll be fine. Our batting is functioning nicely. We can get better in the field, though.

Raza and I like running hard, and that is a big part of our game. Then, if you get the odd boundary, you start getting 10/15 run overs. The lack of dot balls puts pressure on the bowlers. Raza's international form has been stunning, and long may it continue; I love playing with him. He's got plenty of experience, and he's played brilliantly over the last year.

I am jealous of Fraser-McGurk. Because at that age, to be batting without fear is just awesome to see. It's awesome to see someone with so much talent, and that gives energy to us older guys. Kudos on getting to the Australian side; wish him the best. He completely deserves his call-up to the Australian side, and we wish him well."
Player of the Match: Sam Billings
David Warner (Dubai Capitals Captain): "The boys stayed calm throughout the game. With two set batters, we stuck to our plans and it made things better and easier. The two dropped catches also helped us and when you get chances, you make the most of it. When you get close to 200, the pressure of the chase can get to you but otherwise it is tricky with the dew out here. None of the teams win batting first here and that has been quite a trend oflate. Knowing Willey, I don't recall him swinging it away and nipping one back. My first message to the team was to be brave, express yourself and execute your skills. To have a clear mind and then you win game comprehensively like tonight. He (Akif Raja) stepped up and executed bowling to the shorter boundary."
Sunil Narine (Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Captain): "I think we batted well. It was a good total, to be honest. Picking up early wickets would have been good for us bowling second. The batters stuck to the plan, and not losing wickets helped them. Bowling second with the dew on offer makes it easy for them, it is difficult for the spinners to control it. However, we need to execute better with the ball. It is a learning process, hope we will learn quickly because the games come back-to-back in this tournament."
Rahmanullah Gurbaz wins the Biggest Six of the Match award for his 99m six.
11:27 PM IST and 9:57 PM Local Time: Dubai Capitals make a mockery of a competitive run-chase to thrash Abu Dhabi Knight Riders by 5 wickets with 23 balls to spare!

Earlier in the game, Dubai Capitals won the toss and opted to bowl first. Dushmantha Chameera troubled the top-order of the Knight Riders and got a couple of wickets. Alishan Sharafu struggled during his stay in the crease and finally lost his wicket to Roelof van der Merwe straight after the Powerplay.

Laurie Evans and Sam Hain joined hands together, adding a massive partnership of 131 runs for the 4th wicket and in the process, both hit excellent half-centuries. Hain (77 off 49) lost his wicket in the final over in the bowling off Jason Holder, while Evans (67 off 41) was unbeaten along with Andre Russell, who played three balls and scored three runs as the Knight Riders posted 183/4 in 20 overs.

David Willey struck early in the first over and saw David Warner depart for a silver duck. Impact player Jake Fraser-McGurk was on fire and smashed the Knight Riders' bowlers left, right and centre, smoking 41 from just 17 balls, adding 57 runs for the second wicket with Rahmanullah Gurbaz, who hit a couple of lusty blows in his innings of 21 from just 7 balls.

The Capitals lost a couple of wickets in a span of an over but Sam Billings and Sikandar Raza stood tall, adding 109 runs for the fourth wicket to take the game away from the opposition. Billings hammered a half-century and got out for 67 runs off 35 balls, while Raza was out for 43 off 29 balls.

Narine did try his bit with a spell of 4-0-23-2 but failed to get enough support from the rest of the team.

Powell and Rahul Chopra did the last rites and got the team home in the 17th over.

Stay tuned for the post-match presentations!
