Live updates from the final group stage game.


22:23 (IST)3 SEP 2018

That now means that Shivamogga Lions finish without a win in KPL 2018 while Ballari Tuskers end their otherwise forgettable campaign with a win under their belt. And that's it from the group stage of the KPL, join us again for the playoffs.

22:20 (IST)3 SEP 2018

An excellent over from Akshay and the Tuskers complete a comfortable win. They should have done it in 20 overs but they took it to a super over and came out on top.

22:20 (IST)3 SEP 2018

With 21 to defend, the fast bowler conceded just nine and the Tuskers comfortably win in the super over.

22:16 (IST)3 SEP 2018

Just two runs off the first two balls and that should be that for the Lions.

22:15 (IST)3 SEP 2018

Akshay has the ball while Aditya and Anirudha are the two batsmen.

22:14 (IST)3 SEP 2018

Even 21 will be enough for Shivamogga as they hit more boundaries in their innings. But who will bowl for the Tuskers?

22:09 (IST)3 SEP 2018

Shivamogga Lions need 22 to win this. The decision to go with a spinner in the super over didn't pay off.

Ritesh Bhatkal finishes it off with a six. And that now means that Ballari Tuskers finish with 21 runs in the super over.

22:07 (IST)3 SEP 2018

Back-to-back sixes! This has all gone very wrong in the space of two balls. Back-to-back sixes now means that 14 have come off the first four balls.

What a fantastic way to decide the team that will go down to the table-bottom - of all things. A Super Over!
