That brings an end to the double-header day. The KPL action continues tomorrow as well. Do join us back. Goodbye!

22:48 Local Time, 17:18 GMT, 22:48 IST: Gowtham is pretty pumped. He's successfully defended 13 off the final over and his face tells you how much it means to him. Belgavi's top-order faltered but they still kept themselves in the game through Abhinav Manohar and Ritesh Bhatkal's partnership. With the required rate creeping, both batsmen changed gears to snatch the momentum back from Bellary. Back-to-back wickets off the 17th and 18th over pegged back Belgavi. Although, the youngster Shubhang Hegde and Arshdeep Brar tried their best towards the end flexing their muscles, it wasn't enough as they fell short by 5 runs.

19.6 Gowtham to Arshdeep Singh Brar, no run, Gowtham holds his nerve and guides Bellary Tuskers to a thrilling win. Went quick and arrowed it on leg, Brar gets low to get under it but he can't nail it. Strikes the pad and it's all over for the Panthers

19.5 Gowtham to Avinash D, 1 run, very full, Avinash can only manage to drag it to long-on and Brar is content with the single. Okay so, SIX required off the last ball

8 needed in 3 balls. Gautham walks up to have a chat with his bowler.

19.4 Gowtham to Arshdeep Singh Brar, 1 run, into the blockhole, jammed to long-on

19.3 Gowtham to Arshdeep Singh Brar, 2 runs, short down leg, swivel-pulled behind square. Two more!

19.2 Gowtham to Arshdeep Singh Brar, 2 runs, hoicked across the line to square leg. Lazily jogs but recharges his battery, sprinting back for the second

Avinash D, right handed bat, comes to the crease

19.1 Gowtham to Shubang Hegde, out Caught by Prasidh!! Now, a wicket. The youngster trying to launch out of the park, skews it high off the bat and ballons a sitter to Prasidh at short third man. Shubang Hegde c Prasidh b Gowtham 14(7) [4s-1 6s-1]

Gowtham to Shubang Hegde, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Right, it's come to this. 13 runs required off the last over. Conference in the middle happening betweeen Bellary's players. It's going to be CA Karthik? No change of mind, Krishnappa Gowtham takes the ball from him and he's going to bowl. Shubang Hegde to take strike.

19.1 Gowtham to Shubang Hegde, wide, oh, aweful beginning. Flicks it down the leg-side, the umpire spreads his arms

18.6 Prasidh to Arshdeep Singh Brar, 2 runs, half-hearted loft, coming off the toe-end and in the vacant spaces over extra cover

18.5 Prasidh to Arshdeep Singh Brar, no run, DOT. Short and kicking off outside off, Brar with no feet movement throws his hands. Manaes to connect thin air

18.4 Prasidh to Shubang Hegde, 1 run, slanting on the pads, Hegde stays leg-sidish and pushes it to mid-off

18.3 Prasidh to Shubang Hegde, 2 runs, placed to mid-wicket and took on the fielder's ram, haring back for the second. Faiz Khaleel on air terms it a "School boy error."

Third umpire disturbed. Has Shubang made his ground? Well, CM Gautham has dislodged the stumps before the ball arrived in his mitts. That's a big blunder from the Tuskers' skipper at this stage of the game. Hegde is safe

18.2 Prasidh to Shubang Hegde, no run, Krishna backs his strengths and bombards a bouncer to which Hegde ducks, avoids it

18.1 Prasidh to Arshdeep Singh Brar, 1 run, hits the deck hard, Brar flat-bats it to long-on
