That's an end to an action-packed Saturday. Joburg Super Kings are the final franchise to seal the deal for the playoffs. It was a tight finish in the end. So Sunrisers Eastern Cape and Durban's Super Giants meet in the first qualifier, while Paarl Royals and JSK play in the Eliminator.

I am AkshayaKrishna Polya, your text commentator, signing off on behalf of my scorer/analyst Chandan Kr Singh. We will meet again. Until then, its cheers!
Faf du Plessis (JSK Captain and POTM): "Very tired, really very tired. Even in the last game we played, we felt everything was going against us. It's funny that cricket can make you feel like that, watching that game today as we were coming in for this one, we thought we were dead and buried, our thoughts were going towards a bonus point. To put in that performance against that unit really proud of our team. Every game we had amazing turnouts for our games. Tonight showed that these guys are a very strong cricket team. 190 was par, a few errors on our part, giving big overs away. We knew we had to put in a hell of a batting performance. And tonight me and Luus could do it. I haven't felt at my best throughout that tournament and you are frustrated. In such matches you need to find that soldier in you. Glad that runs came out tonight. Importantly we are paying at home (On Playoffs). If we could choose, we would choose to play the back stretch of games at home. If we could play like tonight and if the crowd backs us like tonight, we will be very difficult to beat."
Player of the Match: Faf du Plessis
Keshav Maharaj (DSG Captain): "Tough loss for us. But we have to take it, they have played well, credit to them. We come onto the field, we believe in ourselves, we are confident and we have trust in our game. The connection off the field. We are quite a tight-knit unit despite the losses. A different energy and vibe this year. Lance Klusener is a positive guy. He brings out the best in people. He has been invaluable to us so far. I wish I knew what Klaasen has for breakfast. I don't think there are many ball-strikers who hit the bat as clean as him. We have two bites at the cherry, look at the cons and build on the positives for that game. We need to go back to the drawing room and have a chat with the support staff about what went wrong tonight."

12:52 AM IST and 21:22 Local Time: Joburg Super Kings have somehow managed to stay in the contest and have made it to the Eliminator of this season with a 7-wicket win over Durban's Super Giants in a high-scoring thriller at the Bull Ring!

Earlier, JSK won the toss and opted to bowl first. Lizaad Williams and Nandre Burger picked up early wickets to reduce Durban to 32/3 inside the Powerplay. JJ Smuts (55 off 34) and Wiaan Mulder (59 off 40) rebuilt the innings with a partnership of 115 for the 4th wicket and hit respective half-centuries. 

Both were dismissed in a short time period, but Heinrich Klaasen teed off yet again and blasted a 16-ball 40, adding 56 runs for the 6th wicket, with Keemo Paul (7* off 7). Klaasen took on Williams in the 19th over, who had picked three wickets earlier, and smashed 22 runs off it. Doug Bracewell bowled a superb final over, giving away only 7 runs and also knocked over Klaasen in the final ball of the innings, but not before Durban's Super Giants scored 203/6 in 20 overs.

Chasing 204 to win, Joburg openers Faf du Plessis and Leus du Plooy went honkers and bonkers to add 102 runs for the opening wicket in the blink of an eye.

Noor Ahmad trapped the JSK skipper in front of the stumps, but not before du Plessis hit 57 off 29, with 7 fours and 3 maximums.

du Plooy continued to bat through and was playing an anchor's role, with Wayne Madsen playing the aggresor's role. du Plooy struck 57 off 47, with five 4s and two 6s and was involved in another 50+ partnership before being knocked over by Noor Ahmad, who had a superb night with the ball, finishing with figures of 4-0-16-2.

Moeen Ali (26 off 12) came in at number 4 and hit a few lusty blows to keep DSG at bay, with Madsen (44* off 29) playing the second fiddle.

With 13 required in the final over bowled by Dwaine Pretorius, Moeen hit the first ball to the fence before getting holed out in the deep in the next one. Donovan Ferreira (14* off 3) came in next and hit 6, 2, 6 in the next three balls to seal the deal for the Super Kings!

Stay tuned for the presentations!
19.5 D Pretorius to D Ferreira
6 SIXXXXX!!!! Ferreira has done it and Joburg Super Kings have done it! JSK won by 7 wickets with a ball to spare and made it to the ELIMINATOR TO SET THE DATE WITH PAARL ROYALS! Fuller-length delivery at the leg stump, Ferreira gets underneath it and, with a nice straight bat, lofts it high and handsome deep into the long-on stands for the winning runs. The Bull Ring has gone crazy as the Men in Yellow win a beautiful game of cricket!
19.4 D Pretorius to D Ferreira
2 Attempts a wide yorker and bowls a low full toss outside off. Ferreira reaches out for it and slashes it to deep extra cover for a quick couple. The scores are level now.
19.3 D Pretorius to D Ferreira
6 SIXXXXX!!!! MAN OH MAN!!!!! Ferreira is the man for the finishing job for JSK! Over the wicket, a low full toss at the off-stump, asking to be hit, and Ferreira gets down on one knee and smokes it over the fence. Middles the heave and finds it sailing well over the mid-wicket fence for a maximum. 200 is up for the home side and they need 3 to win now!

19.2 D Pretorius to M Ali
W WICKETTT!!! Big wicket for Pretorius and DSG! Fantastic catch under pressure! Full-length delivery outside off. He stays deep in the crease, clears his front leg and, throws his hands at it, ends up slicing it off the bottom. High in the air towards deep extra cover, with Naveen-ul-Haq taking an excellent catch in the deep sliding to his right after running in a few yards. 9 from 4 now!
19.1 D Pretorius to M Ali
4 FOURRR!!! Up and over and four runs! Outstanding work from the English batter! Around the wicket, misses the yorker outside the off-stump by just and its in Moeen's slot, who walks outside his off-stump and gets under it to smoke it over the head of the bowler for a crucial boundary. 9 from 5 balls!
JSK need 13 runs in the last over. Pretorius to deliver the pressure over.
