That brings an end to our coverage for this game. Keep joining us for more cricketing action all around the globe. For now, this is Akshay Bhide, signing off, on behalf of scorer Raju Khariya. Tata. Bye Bye.
Ben Dunk (Player of the Match): "Yes. It's an interesting concept the Super Sub. But it's nice to get back to winning ways. We had some tough games in Sharjah but happy to win tonight.

I had the intent every time. I took some high risk options and it didn't work well a few times. But having Davey at the other end helped. Hopefully, we will continue the winning momentum forward.

Just having the clarity. Having Holder and Rovman in the end. Those two are world-class players and seeing them finish was a great sight.

Not nervous. But I got a bit sweaty when it went down to two in two. The boys started saying we may go down to the super over but glad that we finished it there."
Player of the Match: Ben Dunk
David Warner (Dubai Capitals Skipper): "Really important. Quite clearly, we wanted to bowl first. The belief in our changing room about chasing helps. We were calm and the boys did the job.

For me, it's simple. Staying calm when I'm out there. Here on this wicket, the ball tends to grip a bit. I know I had to use my bowlers and whenever we got back-to-back wickets, we got back in the game.

From us, we are still trying to nail the first six overs. I'm working hard in the training but don't know what it is. It's about partnerships. We have shown glimpses but I want more from me.

We all know how Dunky plays and that's why he is in the team."
Colin Munro (Desert Vipers Skipper): "My batting. To be honest, it's tough to take it. It's tough because you ask the top-order to take on the bowling but I couldn't get going. It was tough in the middle. Adam Hose played brilliantly to take to 170 which we would have taken before the start of this match. But again, bowling first works on this ground.

I think after the powerplay, I feel we were 20 runs short. But the credit for the way they bowled and used the conditions. Maybe a couple of twos and threes in the field. Very small margins in the game and it's tough to take these losses.

When you look at it, there is a little bit there. Everyone is putting hard work in the training. We won last year and everyone went our game. We will take it up the chin and move forward."
Biggest Six of the Match: Adam Hose (97 m)
11:45 PM IST, 10:15 PM Local Time: PHEW!!! What a game we have just witnessed. The game went down the wire and with one required on the last ball, Wanindu Hasaranga failed to hit the target and the Dubai Capitals got across the line. It was another thriller in Dubai and the Dubai Capitals beat the Desert Vipers by four wickets to get back to winning ways in the ILT20 2024.

Chasing 170, the Capitals had a shaky start as they lost Rahmanullah Gurbaz (4) and skipper David Warner (4) early in the innings. Ben Dunk came out all guns blazing and played some magnificent strokes. Sam Billings at the other end fell on six right after the powerplay. There was no stopping Dunk as he raced to his fifty in just 23 balls. He scored 59 off 30 balls before holing out in the deep in the 10th over.

Sikandar Raza and Rovman Powell put 41 between them for the fifth wicket before the former was dismissed on 22. Powell kept his side in the chase. He took the game deep along with Jason Holder. It went down the wire and the Capitals required four runs from the last over. Matheesha Pathirana nailed the yorkers to force the game to the last ball. Hasaranga failed to hit the stumps and it allowed the batters to complete the run and take the Capitals across the line with four wickets in hand. Powell and Holder remained unbeaten on 40 and 23 respectively for the Capitals as they chased down the total on the last ball of the match.

Earlier, the Vipers were asked to bat first and they got off to a flying start. Rohan Mustafa and Alex Hales opened the batting and played some fantastic shots as they scored 64 in the powerplay. Mustafa brought up his fifty but fell on the very next ball. Hales looked solid at the crease but departed one short of his half-century.

Hales’ departure helped the Capitals pull back things. They picked up regular wickets and stormed back into the contest. The Vipers managed to gain some momentum at the back end of the innings. A fantastic cameo from Adam Hose (35* off 17 balls) helped the Vipers get to 169/6 at the end of their 20 overs. It wasn't enough in the end as the Capitals chased down the total with four wickets in hand.

19.6 M Pathirana to J Holder
1 A direct hit is missed by Hasaranga and the Capitals are home. WOWWWW!!!! Pathirana nails the yorker on the stumps but Holder was clever as he takes a step forward to take it on full. He works it straight to mid on and sets off for a quick run. Hasaranga stops the ball cleanly and has a shy at the stumps at the bowler's end but misses. A direct hit and the game would have been forced into a super over. But, that wasn't the case as the Dubai Capitals win the game by four wickets.
1 required from 1 now. Pathirana from over the wicket. Holder on strike. Are we in for a super over? Here we go. Pathirana loses his run-up. He comes steaming in again.
19.5 M Pathirana to R Powell
1 A perfect wide yorker from Pathirana and Powell digs it out to the left of the bowler. Pathirana stops it by diving to his left but fails to get up as the batters steal a quick run.
19.4 M Pathirana to R Powell
0 Another dot ball. Brilliant stuff from Pathirana. Bowls it full and just inside the tramline in the off side. Powell leaves it alone expecting a wide but the umpire is unmoved. 2 required from 2 now.
19.3 M Pathirana to R Powell
0 Dot ball. A pinpoint yorker from Pathirana on leg and Powell manages to squeeze it to Afridi at mid wicket. 2 required from 3 now.
19.2 M Pathirana to J Holder
1 A low full toss on the stumps, Holder pushes it in front of mid off and sets off for a quick run. Munro gets to the ball quickly and has a shy at the stumps at the bowler's end but misses. A direct hit and Holder was gone. The equation is now 2 from 4.
19.1 M Pathirana to R Powell
1 Pathirana starts the final over with a perfect yorker around off, Powell digs it out to backward point and steals a quick run. 3 from 5 now.

Matheesha Pathirana will bowl the final over. Rovman Powell on strike.
