Kovai are in a touching distance for a win as they need just 16 runs off eight overs. 

LKK 109/1 after 12 overs
...
Too little, too late for Trichy? D Tamil Kumaran gets the wicket of Shahrukh Khan and gives him a send-off before the batsmen gave it back to the bowler. Skipper Abhinav Mukund had to intervene to settle things between both the batsmen. 

M Shahrukh Khan c Sonu Yadav b Tamil Kumaran 67 (40)
...
10 runs came off the tenth over. Shahrukh is cutting loose after reaching his fifty. Things look dull for Trichy.

LKK 94/0 after 10 overs
...
Shahrukh hit a huge six which helps the Kings take 11 runs off the ninth over. They are cruising towards an easy win here. 

LKK 75/0 after 9 overs
...
Fifty off 30 balls for Shahrukh Khan with the help of six fours and two sixes.
...
While Shahrukh is going all guns blazing, Abhinav is perfectly playing the second fiddle to the right-hander. He is in some kind of form in the tournament. As we speak, just 13 runs were scored off the last two overs. 

LKK 64/0 after 8 overs
...
Perfect end to the powerplay for the Kovai Kings as Shahrukh Khan does what he does best and sends a couple of balls to the ropes. He is looking ominous here and the Warriors will do well to get rid of him quickly.
...
19 runs were scored off the last two overs as Shahrukh has raced his way to 32 in quick time.

LKK 51/0 after six overs
...
Tight over from K Vignesh and that is just what the bowling side would have wanted. Especially considering how explosive both batsmen can be.

LKK 38/0 after 5 overs
...
Shahrukh shows his class yet again as he cuts a delivery from MS Sanjay through the point region for a boundary. How good has he been so far! Eight runs came off the fourth over bowled.

LKK 32/0 after 4 overs
...
Abhinav gets the third over underway with a four over the bowler's head before Vignesh staged a good comeback by conceding just three off the next five balls.

...
Lyca Kovai Kings need 125 runs to win. We will be back for the chase in around 15 minutes.

...
Ruby Trichy Warriors 124/9 after 20 overs
...
S Suresh Kumar goes for a wild slog and ended up top-edging one straight to the bowler T Natarajan.

A run out and eight runs came off the penultimate over bowled by MP Rajesh. S Suresh Kumar, batting on 35 off 32, will be facing the first ball off the last over. 

RTW 121/8 after 19 overs
...
Another mix-up. This time, MS Sanjay falls short of the batting crease and to make things worse, Suresh Kumar will be at the non-striker's end. There was two runs for taking but a direct throw from Antony Dhas found Sanjay short of the crease. 

MS Sanjay run out (Antony Dhas) 3 (9)
...
S Suresh Kumar is giving his best as he is keeping Trichy in the game with some lusty blows. Debutant S manigandan finishes his spell with figures of 4-0-18-2. Trichy will look to score at least 30 runs in the last three overs.

RTW 107/7 after 17 overs
...
K Vignesh strikes! Lakshmi Narayanan tried to pull a length delivery over the fine-leg fielder but ended up finding MP Rajesh just inches inside the boundary rope.

...
S Ajith Ram bowls out after conceding eight runs off his last over. His figures read 4-0-26-2. 

RTW 88/6 after 14 overs

MP Rajesh maintains the pressure the other bowlers had applied on Trichy as he gave away just six runs in his first over and took the wicket of Sonu Yadav. 

RTW 80/6 after 13 overs
...
Leggie MP Rajesh comes into the attack and strikes in the first over. After hitting a boundary earlier in the over, Sonu Yadav tried to cut a ball and ended up offering V Ashwin an easy catch at backward point.

...
Productive over for Trichy. W Antony Dhas comes into the attack and concedes 15 runs off the over with a four and a six.

...
Just six runs came off the last two overs as the Kovai bowlers are keeping the pressure on Trichy batsmen.

RTW 43/5 after 7 overs
...
S Manigandan on a hat-trick in his debut game. 
...
Two in two for Manigandan. What a debut for Manigandan! K Mani Bharathy was beaten for pace and was bowled by the spinner. 

K Mani Bharathy b S Manigandan 10 (12)
...
Debutant S Manigandan comes on to bowl and starts off in the best possible way as he dismisses S Aravind off his second delivery caught by M Shahrukh Khan at deep mid-wicket. 

S Aravind c M Shahrukh Khan b S Manigandan 0 (2)
...
T Natarajan comes into the attack and almost had a wicket off his first ball but Mani Bharathy was dropped by MP Rajesh at mid-wicket. Later, skipper Abhinav Mukund made up for that by running K Bharath Shankar out. A boundary off the last ball makes it six off the over. 

RTW 42/2 after six overs
...
Brilliant piece of fielding from Abhinav Mukund. Bharath Shankar tried to steal a single by hitting the ball to Abhinav Mukund at covers but Abhinav collected the ball and rolled it at the stumps and found Bharath short of the crease.

K Bharath Shankar run out 24 (17)

K Vignesh bowls his third over and yet again, he concedes a boundary. And again, he came back brilliantly by conceding four more runs in the remaining five balls and made it eight runs off the over.

RTW 36/1 after 5 overs
...
A successful over for Kovai as Ajith concedes just five runs and takes the wicket of Indrajith. They have put on pressure on the Trichy batsmen. 

RTW 27/1 after 4 overs
...
S Ajith Ram strikes! He takes the all-important wicket of B Indrajith by trapping him in front of the wickets. But, the replays are suggesting that the ball might be going down the leg side. 

B Indrajith lbw S Ajith Ram 3 (8)
...
K Vignesh continues and starts his over with a boundary off the first ball. But, he came back brilliantly by conceding just off the next five balls to make it six off the over. 

RTW 22/0 after 3 overs
...
K Bharath Shankar hit two boundaries through the covers and propel his team to nine runs in the second over bowled by Ajith Ram. 

RTW 16/0 after 2 overs
...
Seven runs came off the first over bowled by K Vignesh, which is the most he conceded in his first over in the tournament so far, something that speaks volumes about the way he started the innings for Kovai. Out of the seven runs, four came off a bye. Brilliant start by the pacer again. 

RTW 7/0 after 1 over
...
K Bharath Shankar and B Indrajith open the batting for Ruby Trichy Warriors. K Vignesh to open the bowling for Kovai

Can Trichy make it three in a row and beat Kovai? Before we can answer that, the all important toss is just minutes away.
