Karaikudi Kaalai 112/9 after 19 overs

...
Three overs to go, just 14 runs needed for Kaalai to win but they only have three wickets left.
...
Just when Trichy needed a tight over, they let one go for nine runs. Will that cost them the game?

Karaikudi Kaalai 101/7 after 17 overs
...
RUN-OUT! From nowhere, Trichy have come back into this game and that is thanks largely to a regular diet of dot balls and the odd wicket here and there. This one is a run-out courtesy of an excellent direct hit from Sonu Yadav at backward point. He released that so quickly and hit the target as well. R Kavin run out (Sonu Yadav) 5 (10)

Seven came off that over from Sonu Yadav but that also included the key wicket of Shajahan.

...
SIX! Shajahan has had enough of this as he plonks a six straight over the bowler's head.

...
Just 10 runs have come off the last three overs as the runs have dried up.

Karaikudi Kaalai 79/4 after 13 overs

Karaikudi Kaalai 73/3 after 11 overs

OUT! It won't be three fifties in a row as Anirudha Srikkanth is gone attempting a slog sweep. Good catch by Ganpa and that is much-needed breakthrough for Trichy. Anirudha c Ganapathy b MS Sanjay 41(28)

Karaikudi Kaalai 69/3 after 10.1 overs

...
Seven runs came off that over from Sanjay MS, who hasn't quite been able to replicate his heroics with the bat.

Karaikudi Kaalai 64/2 after 9 overs
...
OUT! The flurry of dots got to Maan Bafna who guides a simple catch to Indrajith at first slip. After eight dots in his first 10, Bafna simply couldn't continue to not score and Suresh Kumar picks up his second wicket. Maan Bafna c Indrajith b Suresh Kumar 7(11)

Karaikudi Kaalai 57/2 after 8 overs
...
Another good over spoiled by the last ball as that goes for a six but it is Maan Bafna who gets it this time.

Karaikudi Kaalai 56/1 after 7 overs
...
At the end of the powerplay, Kaalai will be relatively pleased as they almost score a fifty but have lost just one wicket so far. At the same stage, Trichy had already lost half their side.

Karaikudi Kaalai 47/1 after 6 overs
...
OUT! Aaditya is stumped and Trichy get their first breakthrough and it comes off the bowling of Suresh Kumar. Aditya st Mani Bharathi b Suresh Kumar 19(18)

Karaikudi Kaalai 47/1 after 5.4 overs
...
SIX! Srikkanth says bye-bye ball. In the slot and the Kaalai skipper is happy to deposit that over cow corner and end the fifth over that went for just three runs off the first five balls with a six.

Karaikudi Kaalai 45/0 after 5 overs
...
There is a slight delay as the Aaditya V wants a change of bat but the 12th man doesn't bring the right one and after a couple of minutes, the issue is sorted.
...
Anirudha Srikkanth sees the two sixes off the previous over as an invitation to do better and that is just what he does. First slicing one past third man and to the ropes before pulling one past the bowler for another boundary. Then off the penultimate over there was a crunching cover and the over finishes with 12 runs being taken off it.

Karaikudi Kaalai 36/0 after 4 overs
...
Aaditya V showing that Anirudha Srikkanth is not the only who can hit sixes as he picks up a couple of sixes off Vignesh Kannan. The first one was a flat six over the bowler's head while the second went a lot longer and sailed over long on.

Karaikudi Kaalai 24/0 after 3 overs
...
That was a brilliant over until the last over which saw the skipper slash one just over point for a boundary.

Karaikudi Kaalai 12/0 after 2 overs
...
Six off the first over, including a boundary from Aaditya V over cover. Sedate start but just what the doctor ordered for Kaalai.

Karaikudi Kaalai 6/0 after 1 over
...
Karaikudi Kaalai's openers Aditya and captain Srikkanth walk out to the middle.  Vignesh Kannan has the new ball.
...
Can Kaalai chase 115? Join us again in 15 minutes to find out.
...
Trichy Warriors bowled out for 114

The damage was done early but unlike in the games so far, the wickets were evenly distributed between pace and spin. After losing four wickets inside the power play, Warriors never really recovered and if it wasn't for a late cameo by MS Sanjay, Trichy would have struggled to cross 100. For Kaalai, it was Mohan Prasath, who starred with three wickets.
...
RUN-OUT! K Vignesh is run-out going for the second off the penultimate ball of the innings and Trichy are bowled out for 114.

Trichy Warriors 96/9 after 16.4 overs
...

Trichy Warriors 89/9 after 16.2 overs
...
After two wickets and two dot balls, the fifth ball of the over is deposited for the first maximum of the game. MS Sanjay it is who gets the six that was hit into the sight screen. Despite that six, excellent end to his spell from Mohan Prasath, who finishes with figures of 3/23
