That was a breathtaking finish; maybe just another day in the office for Tewatia though. 19 to win off the last over? Done. 12 to get off 2 balls? Surely, he says. Brace yourself up for a double-header Saturday as you try to sink in what just happened, as we bid you goodbye for the day. Take care!

Bala: "Kings are known to have lost many close games. This one is an addition to the list of "must have won""

Shreyas HM: "Not just the overthrow. The first ball of the over was possibly not a wide too." --- Are you planning to open a pandora's box?

Tewatia Gill is the Player of the Match: "It's important to keep the scoreboard ticking. The outfield is really rapid... It's just about execution. It's just one of those days when I was hitting the ball well. Trust me, I am hitting it very hard from my own power! It might not feel like that, but I am doing my level best. Me as an opener is important to bat through the innings. You go to nets and try to practice... We all are really tired, and it'll take us an hour to get back to the hotel."

Pandya has managed to realise they have won: "The kind of ups and downs happen, I think I have now become used to. It was Kings' game; some sympathy for them losing this. Gill has been telling everybody that he is there. A lot of credit goes to Sai as well. Body is coping all right; I am getting tired obviously. As the games come, I'll be getting better."

Time for the presentations

Vinay: "this is the first time 12 scored of last 2 balls to win a game in ipl, right?" --- You ask, and our stats hero Shiva Jayaraman delivers. There have been three previous instances of two sixes being hit off the last two balls to win a game in T20s where data is available. The last time this happened was in 2019, with Nishan Peiris sending Anuk de Alwis all the way. Before that, it was Dhoni hitting Axar for two in two in 2016.

Hus Silverado : "PBKS and a Windies Bowler against Tewatia...The result was obvious!!!" --- Ding dong!

Viswa: "That overthrow lost the match for Punjab. Miller was struggling"

The hero of the milennium Tewatia: "Amazing feeling. There was nothing to think! Just go there and hit sixes, that's what me and David where thinking. I planned against Smith... The last ball was off the middle of the bat, and I knew it was six. The first ball he bowled was wide outside off, and so I thought the last ball was going to come there too. Staff is really chilled here. They just tell us practice hard..."

James Iyer: "That's the way to win a cricket match!"

Agarwal after having to swallow that: "It was a tough game, but we fought heard. We were five-seven runs short... We did really well to get ourselves to that score, so we were really happy with that. Last over could have been anybody's game; we totally back Odean. It's all right; it's just a game of cricket. The talk in the group is we back the guys."

11.30pm How many bet on that? 12 to win off 2, and two sixes required. Tewatia lives a dream. He turns the clock back, and how! Who knew what would have been had Kings not conceded that overthrow? Miller wasn't really looking in great touch - plus there was the Pandya run-out - and Tewatia looked in the mood. What a game here! Gill's 96 set it up, young Sudharsan contributed too, and Titans remain unbeaten.

Smith to Tewatia, SIX, He is a hero! Dial Tewatia for six! He looks at the dressing room with a swagger of Superman, and why not? He is pumped, chuffed and thrilled. 12 were needed off two balls - two sixes of course - and Tewatia smacks them with the calmness of Bevan, Dhoni and Klusener combined. Walks across off, and nails that slog-sweep off a full length wide of off beyond long-on

Smith to Tewatia, SIX, Tewatia gets the first of those! Only just six that one! That was nearly gone. The man there at deep midwicket was falling back and even grabbed it for a second before he fell on the other side with the ball also dropping beyond the rope after it was heaved off a length on middle and leg. A clean swing, and six over deep midwicket

2 sixes to win...

Smith to Miller, 1 run, Smith misses his throw at his end, and that allows an overthrow. Tewatia wanted a run after Miller biffed the back of a length ball on off back to the bowler. Tewatia was well out when the throw came, but alas

Smith to Miller, FOUR, one-bounce four to deep square leg! It was a slower ball on a shortish length on middle, and he pulled firmly there. Miller keeping them ticking here

Naseef: "Heart says Miller will finish it off in Miller style!"

Smith to Tewatia, 1 run, slashes to deep point. Pretty full and wide of off, and he lofts that away from hid body

Tewatia on strike. Remember what he did to Kings in 2020? Can he get just two of them away here, if not more?

Smith to Miller, OUT, Pandya is run-out! Bairstow shatters the stumps at his end by dribbling the ball with an underarm throw to dislodge the bail on middle and leg stump. Pandya can only walk back with a little mutter to himself. It was a good length ball wide of off, as Miller had a swing at that away from his body but was beaten. They had to run - that is all Miller knew - and Pandya fell well short
