Guyana Amazon Warriors

10.24 pm What can we say then? A man single-handedly took the game away from Barbados Tridents tonight after Guyana Amazon Warriors posted a more-than-competitive 158 in their first innings. Five Guyana batsmen scored useful knocks of 20 or more to help their team reach that score, but it was Sohail Tanvir who stole the show. Records tumbled in Bridgetown as Amazon Warriors ease into fourth place, four points head of the team they just demolished.

Till then, it's goodbye from Varun and Sreshth.

10.15 pm The captains now. Winning captain Emrit says: "We knew it'll be tough. The conditions (as they say) were not suitable for the Guyanese. We thought getting 150-plus would be tough for them. Sohail's spell was the best swing bowling I have ever seen in my life. He told us he'd do something special."

Losing captain Pollard says: "The way we bowled today, we thought we can stop them at 130, so yes, they had the psychological advantage after reaching 150. Hats off to Sohail. Our top-order guys had no clue what was going on. He adapted quickly, and single-handedly took the game away from us. It's a bit disappointing, nonetheless. All I want to say is that this is a game we need to forget. We were here for nine days at Bridgetown, but couldn't access the stadium only till yesterday. If we can't, as the home team, access the ground, it's a major disadvantage for the home team."

10.08 pm No surprises as Sohail Tanvir is the Man of the Match. He says: "We knew how important the game was, and that's what we discussed. What we discussed was that we (as seniors) needed to put our hands up. The seniors have stepped up, and credit goes to the whole team. Every wicket was important for me today, you name it, every wicket was of a match-winner's. When we came on this pitch yesterday, there was a bit of grass and moisture so I told my team-mates we can put balls in the right areas, and we were bound to get assistance. I just did the basics right, and got the reward."

Stick around for reactions from the captains and the Man of the Match.

Eric: "How often does it happen that one bowler (tanvir) finishes with figures that are the same as the bowler at the other ends (rashid) best figures?" -- Great spot, Eric. Tanvir's 5 for 3, which is the best five-wicket haul in T20s, is a record that he shares with two other bowlers: Rashid against Ireland in March and Rangana Herath against New Zealand at the 2014 World T20.

13.4Rashid Khan to SK Springer, OUT, No run, this time the googly is spot on! Pitches outside off stump and the ball breaks the middle stump. Barbados Tridents are all out for 59. Guyana Amazon Warriors win by 99 runs..
13.3Rashid Khan to SK Springer, No run, googly this time, good length on middle and off and the ball hurries onto the batsman. Raps him on the pad, but it's too high.
13.2Rashid Khan to SK Springer, 2 runs, full outside off, slapped towards deep extra cover for two more.
13.1Rashid Khan to SK Springer, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, short ball outside off stump, poked behind square, and that's racing away to the boundary.

Tanvir finishes with ridiculous figures of 5 for 3 off his four overs. Twenty two dot balls off the 24 deliveries he bowled today.

Wahab's in some serious pain and he's getting some help in the middle from the physio. The umpires decide to take the drinks break while Wahab's recovery (sic) continues.
