Surprise, surprise, Man of the Match goes to the tournament's first centurion, Mahela Jayawardene. That's it from us here. Join us again in an hour for the second match of the day.
...
...
...
Strikers have now won two out of three while Legends remain winless after three matches. Bond was brilliant with the new ball and despite the fastest fifty by Ervine, it was Jayawardene's century that helped his side to a win.
...
It's all over, Strikers win by 63 runs. The last ball is another dropped catch that costs six runs but Gilchrist won't mind that too much.
...
The final over will see Santokie come in and bowl spin off a long run-up.
...
The run rate is now at 75. Final over left.
...
Hameed almost pulls off a blinder, diving forward but the ball pops out as his elbows hit the ground. Just 79 needed off the last two overs.
...
Krishmar Santokie is bowling slower than Shahid Afridi and Anil Kumble and the Legends tail-enders have no answer.
...
85 needed off the last three. The last rites being performed right now. The bigger question is whether the Legends will be bowled out or play out their innings?
...
...
WICKET! Swann's all too brief cameo comes to an end. Farhat has a wicket as the Englishman is trapped lbw. Legends 142/7 in 16.3
...
92 needed off the last four overs.
...
Vettori's economical spell was ruined by a couple of boundaries in his final over, but he still finishes with figures of 4-1-32-2
...
WICKET! With the required run rate over 20, Nicky Boje tries to go big but only succeeds in picking out Hauritz at backward point. Legends 135/6
...
Just four runs came off that Hauritz over and this game is going towards a tame end after a blistering start. Legends 125/5 in 16 overs
...
MAIDEN IN A T20 MATCH! Make that 107 off 36 balls as Daniel Vettori bowls a maiden. Game all but beyond the Legends now. 121/5 off 14 overs.
...
107 needed off 42 balls. But with Ervine gone and only five wickets in hand, is the game beyond the Legends?
...
DROPPEd! It was almost two in two but Shane Bond drops one in the deep and palms the ball over for a boundary.
...
WICKET! No they can't as Ervine is out. Legends 114/5
...
Can Legends make the impossible possible? They need 115 runs from the last eight overs. If Ervine stays in, anything is possible.
...
FASTEST FIFTY! Ervine smashes Sehwag's record by some distance as he gets to his fifty with a six off just 19 balls.
...
The first over after the time-out is a strange non-event as just six runs came off it. 104/4 in 11 overs.
...
We are back underway after the timeout with Ervine looking to beat Sehwag's record for the fastest fifty of the tournament.
