...
And that's a wrap. History was made in Tirunelveli as the side from Madurai registered their first win in the history of the TNPL. Next, the action shifts to Dindigul as LYCA Kovai Kings take on Dindigul Dragons in the seventh game of TNPL 2018 on Wednesday. Till then, goodbye.
...
What an excellent catch to finish the innings. Super Gillies are bowled out for 127 and the Madurai Panthers win by 26 runs. The defending champions lose two in a row.
...
AND IT'S ALL OVER. Madurai have won their maiden TNPL game. Madurai Panthers have won. I repeat, this is not a drill. Madurai have finally won. And just like that the agony is all over as joy fills the air in Tirunelveli.
...
A single off the first ball. Now just five sixes needed off the next five balls. Easy peasy.
...
Super Gillies need six sixes to claim an improbable win. Madurai need just one wicket for their maiden TNPL win.
...
That was an expensive over but that merely delayed the inevitable. 12 came off that over but the required rate is over 30.

Super Gillies 123/9 after 19 overs
...
Madurai Panthers just one wicket away from victory and it looks like it might come in the penultimate over the innings.
...
OUT! The batsman are swinging hard but this is just going high and not very high. And the ninth one goes back as the keeper pouches the catch.

Super Gillies 112/9 after 18.2 overs
...
Madurai Panthers two wickets away from creating history. They have two overs left. Will they bowl out the defending champions?
...
OUT! Two wickets in two balls. Varun finishes with figures of 3/16 and the ball goes to the long off fielder once again and it looks like we are closing in on history in Tirunelveli.

Super Gillies 111/8 after 18 overs
...
OUT! That was might be the final straw as Varun gets rid of the dangerous M Ashwin. Nelson strikes as Ashwin perishes trying to go for a maximum.

Super Gillies 111/7 after 17.5 overs
...
50 runs needed off the last three over. And this is all but over. 
...
Although he didn't pick up a wicket Abhishek Tanwar went a long way towards setting the platform for the Panthers and he finishes with figures of 0/22 and his six-run over to finish the spell meant that the run rate has gone up over 16.

Super Gillies 104/6 after 17 overs
...
An excellent spell from Rahil Shah comes to an end as he finishes with figures of 3/27. Now the run rate climbs to 14 off the last four overs.
...
The run rate keeps climbing and now it looks like it is just a matter of time before the Panthers get their first win in the Tamil Nadu Premier League.

Super Gillies 98/6 after 16 overs
...
OUT! Rahil begins with a wicket and the arrow is out again. Is that the game? the Panthers will certainly hope that is the case as Sunny Singh has to depart. The ball just clips the bails and Rahil gets his third.

Super Gillies 94/6 from 15.1 overs
...
60 needed off the last five overs. The experienced Rahil Shah comes in to bowl the 16th over.
...
There was a much-needed six to end the over from M Ashwin but the asking rate is still at 12 even after that six. He needs to be there at the end if the defending champions are to have any chance.

Super Gillies 94/5 after 15 overs
...
Super Gillies need 71 off the last six overs. They have struggled to hit boundaries consistently and to make matters worse, Kiran, who bowled with fire and brimstone during the powerplay is back into the attack.
...
Varun finishes another brilliant over that leaves with figures of 1/9 from his three overs. This is slowly starting to get out of hand for the Super Gillies.

Super Gillies 83/5 after 14 overs
...
OUT! Karthick is gone and Super Gillies are in deep trouble as Varun gets rid of the well-set Super Gillies batsman. Is that the beginning of the end for the defending champions? The run rate continues to rise and the wickets are falling far more frequently than they would like.

Super Gillies 82/5 after 13.4 overs
...
12 runs came off that over but more importantly for Madurai, they picked up another wicket and that is something they are doing on a consistent basis.

Super Gillies 80/4 after 13 overs
...
OUT! What a crucial wicket for the Panthers. That was the arm ball from Rahil Shah and Rahul goes a bit too far and he loses his stumps. B Rahul b Rahil 9(5)

Super Gillies 74/4 after 12.2 overs
...
There was a six in that over. Just the second of the match and the first since the second over. Still 10 runs came off that over but that is still less than the required run rate. 

Super Gillies 68/3 after 12 overs
...
That over took a while to complete as a result the rain delay but still just went for just four runs and included a wicket as well.

Super Gillies 58/3 after 11 overs
