So Deccan Gladiators won this match by 29 runs!

That's it for this game everyone!! We hope that you enjoyed this live coverage between Deccan Gladiators and Maratha Arabians. Stay tuned on Sportskeeda for all the live cricketing updates from around the world. This is Navjeevan Rajput and alongside me, Lavil Saldanha signing off till then take care and stay safe!!
The following is what Deccan Gladiators skipper Imran Tahir had to say in the post-match presentation:
"I was honored to lead the side for the first time. It was a good experience for me and it was nice that we won the match that is what we wanted as a team. It was really sad that we have won just one match in the tournament given that we have got some great players in the team. That's how life goes and we have to think ahead."
Unfortunately, things were just too out of reach for Arabians as they needed 46 runs from the last 12 balls. Towards the end, Mosadeek Hossain remained not out till the end and was the leading run-scorer for his side.
The required rate had crept up to 19 runs per over and it was evident that Arabians needed boundaries. A big over finally came in for them as their skipper Mosaddek Hossain hammered Imran Tahir a couple of boundaries and a maximum, collecting 21 runs from it.
Trouble continued for Maratha Arabians as Shoaib Malik who tried to get going lost his wicket as well. The Gladiators bowlers were on top as they were unable to find the boundaries consistently.
The batters really were struggling as the required rate and the pressure started to build on them. Shakoor finally gave in as he lost his wicket in trying to go for the pressure release shot to Imran Tahir in the 4th over.
Arabians comparatively had a slow start as the Gladiators bowlers did well with the ball in hand and did not allow Abdul to get the middle of the blade by bowling the change of paces.
Coming in to chase 121 runs, Maratha Arabians decided to promote Ishan Malhotra who had an expensive afternoon with the ball to recover some runs. Alongside him was Abdul Shakoor who faced the first ball.
So the Arabians skipper has a great outing as remains not out on 44 runs. Deccan Gladiators thus finish this tournament on a winning note with a new captain Imran Tahir leading the way.
Over: 10 | Summary: 0 0 1 6 0 2 Bowler: Zahoor Khan Score: 91/3
9.6 Zahoor Khan to Mossadek Hossain, yorker on the line of the middle stump, Hossain, digs the ball out to Imran Tahir who has an overthrow and allows them a brace. In the end Arabians win the contest by 29 runs
9.5 Zahoor Khan to Mossadek Hossain, a good short ball from Zahoor Khan, followed Hossain closely as he had a blank swing of his willow, no run
9.4 Zahoor Khan to Mossadek Hossain, SIX! Slower length delivery on the line of the middle stump, Mossadek makes himself a little room and muscled it all the way for a maximum. A really good shot that one, Hossain is able to get enough of it to sail that ball into the stands
9.3 Zahoor Khan to Alishan Sharafu, yorker angled at the line of the middle stump, Sharafu digs it away to the long-on region for a quick single 
9.2 Zahoor Khan to Alishan Sharafu, back of a length delivery a bit wide outside the off stump, Sharafu has a wild swing of his willow but fails to connect
9.1 Zahoor Khan to Alishan Sharafu, yorker landed perfectly on the tramline from Khan as Sharafu thumps it back to the bowler, no run
A tidy over from Summers there, Arabians need 39 runs from the last over which will surely not be possible for them unless the bowler bowls no balls and extras.

Zahoor Khan comes on to bowl the final over
Over: 9 | Summary: 1 W 1 1 1w 1 2 Bowler: Aaron Summers Score: 82/3
8.6 Aaron Summers to Mossadek Hossain, full length delivery wide outside the off stump, Hossain lifts the ball to the extra cover region and gets a brace
8.5 Aaron Summers to Alishan Sharafu, back of a length delivery on the line of the off stump, Sharafu looked to pull the ball but gets a top edge to mid-off for a single
