Over 49 | Score 309/3 | (Bailey 76*, Maxwell 26*)

Yadav to bowl his final over, 10 needed from 12. Bailey took a single off the first ball. Maxwell drilled the next ball straight down the ground for a couple, as a result of some brilliant fielding from Kohli, who restricted it to just two. Maxwell tonked the next ball over covers for another couple of runs. 5 needed to win, will Maxwell finish it off with a Six? He tries to pull the next ball, doesn't connect, dot ball. Yadav bowled a short delivery and Maxwell launched over midwicket for a boundary. One needed. Maxwell pushed the next ball towards third man for the winning runs!
