That is it from tonight's ILT20 coverage! I am AkshayaKrishna Polya, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Ayan Chatterjee, who, alongside our scorer/analyst Ashok Dayma, brought you all the live-action of this game. We will meet again. Until then, it's cheers!
Zohaib Zubair (Player of the Match): "Thanks to Allah. I got to participate in the tournament and my confidence is high after contributing to the performance. I want to thank Ottis Gibson for the support he gave me throughout and I love to see videos of Shahid Afridi as he is my inspiration. Thank You."  
PLAYER OF THE MATCH: ZOHAIB ZUBAIR
James Vince (Gulf Giants Captain): "Yeah, yeah, happy with the win. We knew if we win today we will be back in the top four. It was important to get 2 points. You know, plenty of teams are hovering in the mid-table. I thought the way Hettie and Jamie Overton played highlighted what we spoke about and the intent we wanted to play with."
Tom Kohler-Cadmore (Sharjah Warriors Captain): "I should have listened to you. Wanted to bat second. Very disappointing performance. But we have to forget this and get on with it tomorrow. We felt the pitch was gripping. Sean bowled well and that one over took the game away from it. Hettie took the game away from us and that happens. The spinners bowled well apart from that over. But batting let us down today. Yes, thank you and see you tomorrow." 
Biggest Six of the Match: Tom Kohler-Cadmore (90m). 
Time for the presentations.  
11:28 PM IST and 21:58 Local Time: A complete dominance from Gulf Giants give them a massive win by 79 runs against Sharjah Warriors to move up third in the ladder!

Put into bat first, Gulf Giants had a poor start, with Muhammad Jawadullah knocking over Jamie Smith early. Chris Lynn (45 off 32) continued his good run of form and added 66 runs for the second wicket alongside his skipper James Vince (20 off 20), who played the second fiddle in the partnership.

Sean Williams bowled a brilliant spell in the middle phase of the innings and picked up three quick wickets to put the pressure back on the Giants.

Shimron Hetmyer (53* off 28) showed his power and smashed a brilliant half-century, with Gerhard Erasmus (17 off 11) and Jamie Overton (25 off 15) playing quick cameos around the West Indian.

Chris Jordan (6* off 2) and Hetmyer remained unbeaten in the end as Gulf Giants posted the highest total (187/6) at this venue in this season of ILT20.

Williams bowled really well, but his last over went for 26 runs, with Hettie taking him to the cleaners, ending up with figures of 3/46.

The Warriors never arrived at the chase, with Aayan Afzal Khan taking two wickets in the first two balls of the second innings. Tom Kohler-Cadmore hit a 23-ball 39, smashing 4 fours and 3 sixes, but wickets fell at regular intervals.

Lewis Gregory (30 off 19) and Daniel Sams (14 off 17) did hang in there, but Zohaib Zubair ripped apart the lower middle order, picking four wickets. Muzarabani, Overton, Drakes and Jordan picked up one wicket each to skittle out the Warriors for just 108 in 17.3 overs.

Stay tuned for the presentation!
That's it. Jordan picks up the final wicket as The Warriors have been thrashed here. 
17.3 C Jordan to N Keswani
W WICKETTTT!!! Only Chris Jordan can pull off these! He is over the moon with his own effort. Keswani cannot believe it. Length delivery at the off-stump. Keswani slams it straight back at the bowler. Jordan hangs his right hand and plucks it despite it was hit hard. Sharjah Warriors have been bashed by Gulf Giants!
17.2 C Jordan to N Keswani
0 Nails the yorker, 139.3 kmph, just outside the off-stump, another big swing and miss from Keswani.
