Interglobe Marine won by 96 runs.
Interglobe Marine beat Savannah Lions by 96 runs!

A very one-sided affair comes to an end as a supposedly second-string Interglobe Marine side dismantle the Lions batting unit with spin. The innings started with some accurate bowling from Riyasat and Gopakumar, who was the standout bowler in the powerplay phase. None of the Lions batters could really get him away with Ariff briefly showing intent with his attacking strokeplay. 

However, it was all about spin in the middle overs with the duo of Harshit Seth and Harry Bharwal picking a few wickets in tandem as captain Juandre Kruger held fort at one end. Kruger took the attack to Seth and CP Rizwan, who ultimately had the last laugh in their little mini-battle.

In the end, IGM's spinners extinguished any little hope that the Lions had of chasing this down. The Lions are reeling at the bottom of the table with this win while IGM continue to sustain their momentum in this tournament, thanks to brilliant performances from the likes of CP Rizwan and Yasir Hameed, who is undoubtedly the player of the match for his sensational ton.

That's it from this game. We've had a great time bringing live coverage over the last few hours. Until next time, this is Dwijesh, along with my colleague Pranav signing off!
18.2 Harshit Seth to Shaun Fabe, WICKET! IGM beat the Lions by 96 runs! A quicker delivery bowled on middle and off, Fabe is beaten for pace as he is struck on the pads right in front of middle stump. The umpire gives that one out and brings this match to a close!
18.1 Harshit Seth to Khalid Maharoof, BOWLED! A length ball bowled on middle and off, Maharoof has a big swing at it and misses but the bowler doesn't. The stumps are in tatters as the Lions are on the verge of being bowled out!
Rizwan has the last laugh as he gets rid of the Lions captain Kruger, who showed why he is highly-rated within the Lions set-up. Only a matter of time now before the Lions are bundled out!

Two wickets in the over for Bharwal, who has been brilliant with the ball today. He could have easily had three in the over itself but he should be happy with his performance.
