In the end, the team was restricted to 190/9, losing the game by 35 runs. With this, they avoided the Super Giants getting a bonus point.

Keshav Maharaj, the winning captain: “Little more of a clinical performance today. The batting was phenomenal.. Jon Jon played a role. Nicky did what he does best. It’s just great to see everyone’s putting their hand up. Gleeson got off the flight the other day, but he still executed. The crowd was exceptional. PE is always a special place. It’s about assessing each game as it comes.”
