Crusaders openers Akash Sureka (18) and Ashley Caddy (20) ensured the Crusaders were off to a brisk start in the run chase, but both were out prior to the drinks break. This brought Man of the Match, Dylan Dearing (78 no) and Damian 'Killer' Kelleher (33 no) together in what would prove to be the decisive partnership of the match. Despite a near calamitous run out, Dearing and Kellleher shared a 100 plus run partnership at better than a run per ball to ensure the Crusaders victory by 8 wickets was achieved in the 26th over, thereby earning the team a vital bonus point.
