Quetta Gladiators

11.55pm A thriller in Dubai, a proper T20 match, one way, then the other, then the other again. Quetta needed a win to boost their chances and in the end, it's the chasing side dominating the final stages of a T20 game (again). 22 off 12 came down to 9 off 9, then 9 off 6, then Quetta completed a two-wicket win, winning with two balls to spare. Chocolate cake for Sir Viv's birthday, that will taste sweet for an extra reason (unless it's a weirdly savoury cake).

19.5KA Pollard to Hasan Khan, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, Hasan picks the slower ball and wins the game for Quetta! Scenes here in Dubai. Sir Viv is pumped. A slower ball around off, Hasan clears the front leg and nails the slog over midwicket. Sublime timing. A much-needed win for Quetta..

3 off 2.

19.4KA Pollard to Hasan Khan, 2 runs, a slower ball around off, heaved away into no-man's land. Plonks for a couple. Wow..
19.3KA Pollard to B Laughlin, 3 runs, and run-out? A slower ball outside off is heaved into the gap at square leg. The fielder dives and stops the ball from hitting the boundary, the throw is to Pollard at the bowler's end, who fails to collect the ball before breaking the stumps. That would have been a run-out had he collected, Laughlin was well short..
19.2KA Pollard to B Laughlin, No run, a slower ball outside off, 110 kph, Laughlin misses the heave. He is too early through the slower ball. Have to be set up for the slower ones.

8 off 5.

19.1KA Pollard to Hasan Khan, 1 run, a shortish slower ball outside off, heaved to deep square leg..

Banter alert: Tempers flare. Watson gets into a verbal tussle with Tanvir. Pollard, Tanvir's team-mate who is standing at slip, gives Watson a earful. Plenty happening
