That's that from us - it's Rishi, Akshay, Kumar and Praveen signing off. Head over to the second game of today's double-header then - ciao for now! Thisara Perera | Stallions captain | Man of the Match: I'm really proud as an all-rounder and as a captain today. I never think much about results when I'm batting, so I'm really happy. We didn't execute our batting too well, but our bowling was great, because on this kind of wicket it's easy to chase 200. I think I am succeeding because I'm a little more mature now, as opposed to before when I wanted to hit from ball one. I tend to take my time now and that's why I'm a little more successful. Dasun Shanaka | Viiking captain: We were at the top of the game at the start, but our execution at the end was poor, so our bowlers must come back strongly in the next match. I could have spoken to our fast bowlers and come up with different plans, because Thisara is capable and he took the game away from us. I think we need to change a bit, because this isn't the best combination (two left-armers) and we have to change the batting order too. 19:20 Local Time, 13:50 GMT, 19:20 IST: I mean, who would've thought it possible. The Stallions were 36-4, before Thisara Perera, aided by a few twenties in the lower and middle order, cut loose and set in motion one of the LPL's great counterattacks. As for the chase, the Viikings did come out with intent, but possibly a little too much, as they threw their bats at everything and went on to loose some quick wickets. The Stallions bowlers were much tighter with their lines and barely provided them with pace and room to swing, and eventually, after the wicket of Samit Patel, it was just a demolition job in slow motion for the Viikings innings, as they fell short by 66 runs. Nothing really went for them from the moment Thisara Perera walked into bat in the first innings... 19.1 C de Silva to Aftab Alam, out Kumara Run Out! And the misery ends for the Viikings! A bit of a skidder that's chopped to cover, the non-striker has taken off, out of his ground by a long way, and the throw comes in to de Silva, the bowler, who clips off the bails to bring this game to an end. Kumara run out (Hasaranga/C de Silva) 0(2) C de Silva to Aftab Alam, THATS OUT!! Run Out!! Chaturanga de Silva, Left arm orthodox, comes into the attack A dull 20th coming up. 67 off 6 required. Or one wicket. You know which one you want. Just end the misery... DVK: 152-9 after 19 overs 18.6 Usman Shinwari to Kumara, no run, full and wide outside off, Kumara throws his bat at the cover drive, misses 18.5 Usman Shinwari to Kumara, no run, short and wide, Kumara has a go at the cut, misses Lahiru Kumara, left handed bat, comes to the crease 18.4 Usman Shinwari to Malinda Pushpakumara, out Caught by Tom Moores! That's another beautifully directed short ball, Malinda Pushpakumara is cramped for room as he tries to hook, gets the shoulder part of the top-edge as the ball lobs meekly towards Tom Moores who collects it gleefully.

Olivier wins the battle of the egos!
