...
For his 48 off just 28 balls, Azhar Mahmood walks away with the Man of the Match.
...
...
...
...
...
A last-ball thriller is won by the Super Kings, who get over the line by four wickets.
...
A masterclass from James Foster, who reverse swept and scooped Super Kings to victory.
...
15 needed off the last over. Brett Lee on strike and Fidel Edwards to bowl. Which fast bowler will prevail?
...
Brilliant penultimate over from Jarvis, who finishes with figures of 2/21. Just three runs came off his last over, including two wickets. Super Kings 132/6
...
WICKET! Mooney inside edges back onto his stumps and this has been an excellent over so far from Jarvis. Two wickets and just two runs off five balls. 131/6
...
Brilliant over so far from the youngest player in the tournament, Kyle Jarvis. Just one run off the first three balls including a wicket, but can he finish it off?
...
WICKET! Brian Lara takes a stunner at point. Azhar Mahmood is gone for 48 off just 28 balls. Super Kings 129/5
...
31 have come off the last two overs and now 18 needed from 12 balls.
...
20 runs came off that over, which is the most in this innings and now the asking rate is below 10. How costly will Peterson's final over turn out to be?
...
Another four, it is now 15 runs off the first three balls. Peterson, who has been the best bowler for the Lions is being creamed all over the park by Mahmood.
...
SIX! Four first ball, forced a wide the next ball and then smoked a six over long off and it is 11 runs off the first three balls.
...
Four off the first ball, Mahmood gets the 18th over off to the perfect start. Is this the over they were looking for?
...
11 runs came off that Streak over, but that was still below the asking rate. 38 needed from three overs now.
...
Just five runs came off that over, including a wicket and the Super Kings have an uphill task on their hands. 49 to win off the last four overs.
...
WICKET! But no bother, he gets McKenzie off the next ball as the South African is bowled after he fails to connects with a slog sweep. Super Kings 94/4
...
DROPPED! It should have been a wide but Mahmood tried to beat the short third man, but only ends up finding him, but substitute fielder, drops the catch. Peterson should have had his second there.
...
Boundary off the last ball helps a bit as Super Kings are 93/3 from 15. Need 54 to win off the last five overs.
...
...
McKenzie tries to do that as he takes the ball off the keeper's gloves to the hit his first boundary of the innings. Still only 8 off the over. Super Kings 84/3 in 14 overs.
...
Unfortunately just five runs came off the next over and Super Kings now need big overs and McKenzie to start firing on all cylinders.
...
12 runs came off that Peterson over, including two fours. Was that the over they needed to break the shackles? 71/3 from 12 overs.
...
Last 25 balls went for just 20 runs with the loss of a wicket, but Mahmood just drives Peterson down the ground for four, to give the Super Kings their first boundary in 37 balls.
...
The spinners are turning on the screw for the Lions but with two experienced batsmen at the crease, can Super Kings navigate through this period?
...
At the halfway stage, Super Kings are 56/3.
...
Time for the time-out and the Super Kings are 55/3 in 9.4 overs.
...
WICKET! Owais Shah is gone. Peterson strikes in his first over. Super Kings 55/3
...
Robin Peterson into the attack.
...
Lions are turning on the squeeze. Botha's second over went for just four runs and the last three overs have gone for just 11 runs. 47/2 from 8 overs.
...
Brilliant first over from Streak, who gets a wicket and concedes just two runs. 43/2 from 7.
...
...
...
WICKET! Franklin takes a simple catch and sees the back of Yousuf, who is gone for 19. Super Kings in a spot of bother at 41/2
...
Just five runs off that Botha over, which included the crucial wicket of Super Kings skipper Smith.
...
WICKET! First ball of spin brings a wicket and Brendan Taylor stumps Smith and the Super Kings are 37/1.
...
First sign of spin and Johan Botha is into the attack in the final over of the powerplay.
...
Yousuf has been the dominant partner and Super Kings are off to a solid start. 36/0 from 5 overs.
...
SIX! He might be 41 but Yousuf shows he can still belt the ball over the rope. 22/0 from 3 overs.
...
Mohammad Yousuf gets the boundary count underway for the Super Kings in the first over. 13/0 after one over.
...
...
Streak with a useful cameo of 21 from 11 balls and Franklin's 44 off 33 balls helps Lions post 146/7.
...
SIX! Streak makes it 10 from the first three balls of the last over as he pulls Lee over square leg for six.
...
A couple of twos to start the over and the Lions are inching their way to 140.
...
Franklin has got 20 off his last seven balls. Streak needs to get him on strike as soon as possible.
...
...
Azhar Mahmood showcases his complete arsenal of deliveries but is unlucky to go for a four off the last ball. Still only nine runs in the over and Lions are 129/7 with an over to go.
