M Gautam and Karthik CA to open. Aniruddha Joshi to bowl.

Ball 1: Joshi to Karthik, 2 runs, takes the outer edge and they will get a brace. That was a wild swing and lucky he got a brace

Ball 2: Joshi to Karthik, OUT!, caught by Abhilash Shetty. That was a cross-batted swipe and the fielder at deep square leg takes it. More drama here

Ritesh Bhatkal walks in

Ball 3: Joshi to Gautam, SIX, that has been biffed away across the line. A little shimmy and murdered over cow corner. Big hit, big statement

Ball 4: Joshi to Gautam, SIX, that is another slog sweep. Sat down and swept it over deep mid for another maximum

Ball 5: Joshi to Gautam, 1 run, that has been slog swept again, mistimed though and it lands well short of the man at deep mid for a single

Ball 6: Joshi to Ritesh Bhatkal, SIX, that has been slapped down the ground. A big hit again. That was flatter and the batsman stroked it with the power to send it scorching over the bowler’s head for the third six of the super over

22 to win! Even 21 will do as Shivamogga hit more boundaries in the original game. Skipper Joshi got it horribly wrong. Why would you bowl an off-spinner in a super over? That is very rare and I guess they will have to pay for it.

Tuskers are still not sure whom to bowl in the super over. There is a cabinet meeting going on to decide it.

Aniruddha Joshi and Aditya Somanna will open. SL Akshay will bowl the over.

Ball 1: Akshay to Aniruddha, 1 run, yorker length delivery outside off, toe-ended down to long-off

Ball 2: Akshay to Aditya, 1 run, full-toss at the stumps, nothing shot from Adithya Reddy as he drives it straight to cover

Ball 3: Akshay to Aniruddha, no run, perfect yorker at the stumps. Whatta delivery under pressure. Adithya Reddy could only push it back. Is this, game, set and match?

Ball 4: Akshay to Aniruddha, 1 run, fuller length delivery outside off, Adithya Reddy opens the face of the bat to long-off. 19 still needed

Ball 5: Akshay to Aditya, 1 run, Slower delivery on a back of a length, Adithya Reddy was beaten by the lack of pace and he could only pull it to deep square leg

Ball 6: Akshay to Anirudha, wide, down the leg-side. Wide called. It won’t matter

Ball 6: Akshay to Aniruddha, FOUR, another slower ball, Adithya Reddy waits for it and carves it through deep cover for a boundary. Tuskers win the super over by 12 runs!
