11.20pm That was a swift end. A massive collapse towards the end after a blistering start to the chase, but that's what 200-plus totals do. The pitch can be as flat, the bowling can be off, but all it takes is an over or two of strangulation. There is still an effectiveness to the old-school mentality of winning the toss, batting first and putting up a total on the board. We saw a late meltdown in the first innings as well, as Guyana lost five wickets in their last six overs, and added just 52 runs in the last seven overs. But such was the security provided by the brilliance of Hetmyer and Shoaib Malik that it bailed them out in the end.

"It's a very good feeling, would like to thank the Almighty, and would like to say thanks to everybody, especially my girlfriend," says Man of the Match Shimron Hetmyer. "Positivity was important, I had to keep going and my captain encouraged me. It (playing off the backfoot) was (a ploy). Stay as deep as possible. (Jersey no. 189) is my highest score in any cricket."

"He (Hetmyer) played a fearless innings tonight, that's what we need at the top in any team," says Andre Rusell. "He backed himself and played to his strengths. Credit to him. Going to the crease and batting, bowlers bowling with nothing happening, no swing, and the crowd's behind you.. I didn't feel like it was a home game, it felt like I was playing in Guyana. After the runout is when everything changed, and things started happening. Once you have a good thing going, just try to keep that going as long as possible. Overall a very good game, we pulled it back with the ball. I thought we'd be chasing 240. With the batters we have, we should have got the total."

"Even my last few years when I played for Barbados, you could see a lot of Guyanese people here," says winning captain Shoaib Malik. "I think it's a good thing. If you're playing in America and you see a full crowd, it's always a good sign. Against a good team, 150 or 160 is not good enough. I told Hetmyer, if the ball is in your zone, keep hitting; if it's not just rotate the strike."

Right then, Guyana go top of the table with that effort, and we're done here. Thanks for joining us today and keeping us engaged with your feedback. Be back here tomorrow for some more fun. Cheers!

NK Sharma: "What a way to back in the game and in winning situation, not good for JT this type of collapse.."

16.2Shoaib Malik to S Badree, OUT, 1 run, flicks a length ball into the gap at midwicket. Yes and no on the second. Badree is off and halfway down, and then has to make his way back, by when deep square leg has gotten around the ball and hurled a throw to the bowler's end.
16.1Shoaib Malik to O Thomas, 1 run, gets an inside edge through to short fine.

Some reflection from Peter: "Speaking to Russell yesterday, he didn't hold back saying how he felt these matches were not really home games for the Tallawahs in Florida and that Sabina Park is where their true support base lies. He's probably wishing that ownership may have a rethink about the site of next year's "home" fixtures right about now."
