That's it. Thank you for joining us! On behalf of my co-commentator Deepak and scorer Manish, I, Sidharth, say goodbye! Cheers!
Simon Harmer (Player of the Match): "Luckily, things worked for me. The idea was to cramp SEC's batters up. As a bowler, you always know (Heinrich) Klaasen is coming for you. He hits balls three-quarter way up the stumps. I tried to hit the sticker of his bat. SA20 is a great tournament. To see full stadiums is good."

Aiden Markram (Sunrisers Eastern Cape Captain): "Scrappy win with some really good individual performances that got us over the line this afternoon. 

Yeah, it worked out nicely. Like, as for us last year, trying to sort of incorporate that into this year, but I suppose it just comes down to each individual and their character and how much they're willing to put out on the line for this team. And the guys have responded beautifully to that. 

[Stubbs and Jansen] Yeah, massive for us. They did it last year as well and they really enjoy batting together. Understand each other well and I think they pump each other with a lot of confidence. So I'm happy for them. 

[Stubbs] He's always had the ability and he's got a lot of character about him as well. He likes to be out there in the middle. He wants to be the guy to make a difference and it's great when guys like that do well.

[Simon Harmer's performance] It was a remarkable performance, a bit risky against the right-handed batters, but he managed to generate a lot of movement and bounce. His excellent spell meant we didn't have to chase a high target."
Keshav Maharaj (DSG Skipper): "We were bossing for the most of it, but couldn't keep things tight in the last few overs. I think we read the pitch spot-on, but lack of execution at the end cost us. Glad to see that Wiaan Mulder's hard work has paid off. Unfortunately, we couldn't cross the line in this game. Thanks to the crowd for turning up in huge numbers. We'll make a strong comeback."
Time for the post-match presentations...
20:30 IST and 17:00 Local Time | That's it. Sunrisers Eastern Cape win by five wickets. Masterful knock by Tristan Stubbs, who remains unbeaten on 66 off only 37 balls. 

Chasing a target of 160, Sunrisers Eastern Cape found the going tough as Durban’s Super Giants kept things tight for most part of the second innings. Reece Topley removed Dawid Malan while Quinton de Kock ran out Tom Abell. Aiden Markram, the Sunrisers Eastern Cape skipper, had a good partnership with Stubbs but Marcus Stoinis returned to dismiss Markram and Pat Kruger off consecutive balls. The running between the wickets was splendid throughout. The SEC batters stole many doubles by finding gaps. Later, Stubbs and Marco Jansen took it deep and helped their team cross the line with four balls remaining. Jansen contributed an unbeaten 24 off 14 balls. 

Earlier, Durban’s Super Giants posted 159/7 in their full quota of 20 overs, thanks to Wiaan Mulder’s blistering half-century. Before Mulder’s blazing knock, offspinner Simon Harmer spun a web, finishing with a four-wicket haul. The ball was gripping a bit, but Mulder had a cool head on his shoulders, and he guided DSG past 150. Mulder smashed 52 off only 29 balls.

19.2 J Smuts to T Stubbs
4 FOUR! That's it, Sunrisers Eastern Cape thump Durban's Super Giants by 5 wickets, with 4 balls to spare and take revenge for their previous loss. SEC move to number three on the points table. Touch short of a length delivery outside off. Stubbs makes room and thumps it over the infield in the off-side for a boundary to finish the game.

18.6 R Topley to T Stubbs
1 Full-length on the middle and leg stump line. Stubbs flicks it to mid-wicket for a single. The scores are level now!
That would release the pressure. Has landed out of the ground, on the streets. Only two runs required now.
18.5 R Topley to T Stubbs
6 SIX!! Fetch that, says Stubbs in his subconscious mind! Full and on the stumps. Stubbs bends low and whips it over the deep mid-wicket a massive six. The ball sails all the way over the stadium and lands on the road.
