The players are now making their way out on the middle as we are about to get underway with the chase. Chris Gayle and KL Rahul are set to begin proceedings and the onus will be on them to give the team a flying start in the innings.

Tidy last over from Andrew Tye as he gives away just 8 runs and it was made possible only because Russell was caught out at the mid wicket ropes by Mayank Agarwal on the fourth ball of the over. Uthappa hit a boundary to finish the innings for 218/4 in 20 overs. It is going to be a tough ride for the away side in chase.
