That's all from this one-sided contest, folks! Dubai Capitals advance into Qualifier 2 and they will face the loser of Qualifier 1 on the 15th of February. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. For now, this is Deepak Prakash signing off on behalf of co-commentator Hiren Kumar and scorer/analyst Ashok Dayma. CHEERS! 
Sikandar Raza (Player of the Match): "Anytime a role is given to me, i put everything from my side. We did not think it was 180 wicket and we were thinking of 160. When we got 180 we were confident. 100% those guys (Scott Kuggeleijn and Olly Stone) are standing up for us and both of them are doing brilliant for us. I know them (on few Zimbabwe fans) and will look to spend some time with them and have a banter."
Sikandar Raza is the player of the match.
Sam Billings (Dubai Capitals Captain): "Yeah, we've played a couple of games here and we've always found that getting yourself in is always tricky. So I think that's been a trend of the tournament. If you get past kind of 10-15, you can go on to get a decent score, but it's very hard to start as a batsman in this competition so far. So I think the platform that Tom Banton has given us, and  Holden, obviously, last game as well, and Tom today was brilliant. So it allows the middle order to then keep going. 

We believed that a score of 160+ would be excellent, and we were pleased with that total. Kuggeleijn and Stone have been fantastic together, complementing each other brilliantly. They've set the tone with their bowling on these wickets, which have offered some movement. I'll certainly keep an eye on it; both teams are of high quality. Overall, I'm delighted with our performance in the last three games. We're in a very good position."
Sunil Narine (Abu Dhabi Knight Riders Captain): "Yeah, i think they got 15-20 too many. Even if they got 160 i don't think we put up a fight. I think in this tournament, powerplay is crucial and we were poor there. We had a decent tournament compared to last season. Some positives. Good team bonding."
Sikandar Raza gets the biggest six of the match award for his 91m six. 
Welcome to the post match presentation.
11:22 PM IST, 9:52 PM Local Time: Dubai Capitals thump Abu Dhabi Knight Riders by a massive 85 runs and advance into Qualifier 2 of the tournament, and they will face the loser of Qualifier 1 on the 15th of February. Poor batting display by Abu Dhabi Knight Riders as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals, getting bundled out for 103 runs in the 17th over of the innings, and are eliminated from the tournament. 

Earlier, after being invited to bat first, Dubai Capitals posted a hefty 188/5 in 20 overs. They got off to a shaky start, losing two wickets inside the powerplay, but Tom Banton and Tom Abell rescued the Capital and added 60+ runs for the third wicket. Banton and Abell kept the scoreboard ticking at a decent pace but fell 6 and 9 runs, respectively, short of their half-centuries. 

Sam Billings and Sikandar Raza paired up in the middle and carried the momentum, with both batters scoring at a brisk pace. Raza contributed 40 runs off just 19 balls, while Billings remained unbeaten on 46 runs, helping their side post a good total on the board. 

Sabir Ali Rao bagged a couple of wickets for Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, while David Willey, Joshua Little, and Fabian Allen contributed one wicket. 

In pursuit of 188 runs, Abu Dhabi Knight Riders started losing wickets from the word go and kept losing wickets at regular intervals, finding themselves at 46/5 in the 8th over. Sam Hain and David Willey steadied the sinking ship for a while, but Raza clean-bowled Hain and Willey for 29 and 36 runs, respectively, breaking the budding partnership and putting Knight Riders in deep waters. 

Abu Dhabi Knight Riders kept losing wickets at regular intervals and eventually got skittled for 103 runs in 16.5 overs, losing the match by a massive margin of 85 runs. 

Scott Kuggeleijn shone with the ball for Dubai Capitals, claiming four wickets. Zahir Khan and Sikandar Raza chipped in with a couple of wickets, while Olly Stone contributed one wicket to Knight Riders' downfall. 

Stick around for the post-match presentation.....
A direct hit at the bowler's end, and the third umpire has been summoned to check it. Oh, a casual approach from the batter, and his bat is in the air. He should have dragged his bat to get inside the crease, but Sabir Ali is very casual here, and OUT is the final verdict on the giant screen. 
16.5 S Kuggeleijn to S Ali
W A direct hit at the bowler's end and this could be the game. Ali's bat is in the air and the Knight Riders are bowled out for just 103. The Capitals win this by 85 runs and are through to Qualifier 2. A clinical performance from them. Coming to the ball, Good length ball, on middle and leg, Ali is struck on the pads and the ball rolls down towards square leg and the fielder hits the bull's eye at the bowlers end.
16.4 S Kuggeleijn to S Ali
0 Slower ball, outside off, Ali waits and looks to poke but misses and is beaten.
16.3 S Kuggeleijn to S Ali
0 Fuller length, into the stumps, Ali backs away and guides it to point for a dot.
Sabir Ali is the last man in for the Knight Riders.
