Marchant de Lange is named the Man of the Match. He says that it was an enjoyable pitch to bowl on, felt like back home. Adds that there were little bit of nerves in the end but he did the basics right.

!

What an exciting finish to this low-scoring game. They say low scores are always tricky and you can see why. Set a paltry 124 runs to win, Brisbane were on the back foot right from the word go. Titans chipped away with wickets at regular intervals with Marchant de Lange who was destructive with his pace. Brisbane just could not get going and once the target began to get out of reach, they started losing wickets at an alarming rate. Titans, who were disappointing against Chennai did not make the same mistake and were exceptional with their bowling with every bowler doing his job.

Marchant de Lange to Alister McDermott

OUT! That's it! Titans win by 4 runs! A scintillating yorker! On the stumps, McDermott backs away but it's a perfect yorker, the ball sneaks through and rattles the timber even before the bat even gets down. The umpire checks for a no ball but replays show that de Lange's foot was fine. He is going wild in celebrations.
