Time to wrap up our coverage from the Qualifier 1 game of the ILT20 of this edition. MI Emirates have booked their spot in the grand finale and the Gulf Giants will appear for another opportunity to make it to the final.

For now this is the trio of Saptak Sanyal(2nd innings), Sourya Chowdhury and Hitesh Peddurwar(1st innings) signing off alongside our scorer/analyst Raju Khariya. Good night
Akeal Hosein, man of the match: "We have to do what we have to do. So used to getting tired. Busy life for us nowadays. I try to do as much recovery on off days because the games and tournaments come thick and fast. Yes the pitch offered turn from the beginning and I decided to go with it."
Player of the Match- Akeal Hosein
Nicholas Pooran (MI Emirates Captain)- "I am very happy with the performance. We were expected to play the finals and we did well as a team and we have made it. Akeal was brilliant for us tonight. He is stepping up in every games almost when he is getting the opportunity. It is nice to see the experienced players contributing. You can;t buy experience and guys like Bravo, Kieron have played a lot of T20 games and they have done tremendous for us. We have three quality spinners in our line-up and they are delivering at the right time together."
James Vince, Gulf Giants captain: "Disappointing performance. Completely outplayed. Did get some early wickets. We did realise that the pitch will be slow and help spinners. Became tough to get our spinners into the game because of the left-right combination. We were sloppy on the field and batted poorly as well. Cannot dwell on this loss and move on for tomorrow. Conditions did not change too much so toss maybe was not a big factor.
Biggest six of the game- Chris Jordan(91 meter)

18.2 W Salamkheil to D Worrall
W OUT! And it's over. Pitched up on middle, Worrall goes for the slog in desperation, does not time it at all, and Waseem will take a neat catch running in at deep mid-wicket. MIE deservedly win this by a huge margin.
18.1 W Salamkheil to D Worrall
