Trinbago Knight Riders

9:33pm And that is all from our coverage tonight. Thanks for joining and we'll see you soon.

Jason Holder: We were 30-40 runs short. This pitch is a little difficult to start on, every pitch becomes easier when you spend time on it and we didn't. It was a tough call (dropping Guptill) because in four games we haven't capitalised in the Powerplay, so we wanted to give someone else a chance. Time to go back to the drawing board. I think all stats will show you don't win if you lose three wickets in the Powerplay. We've got stay calm. We still have five games. We can't look too far ahead. We have to focus on our three home games. No need to panic, there's still a lot of cricket left.

Dwayne Bravo: Great feeling, always a great feeling to win a cricket game. Two points is always good. Happy with the entire performance, to restrict a very good batting line up 12 after they elect to bat. Good to have a good left-arm orthodox spinner, a good off spinner and a good leg spinner. We base our team on allrounders and spinners.

Brendon McCullum: Was't very comfortable on this wicket and a few demons from last year when I broke my arm here. Hard wicket to get singles, had to stay strong and hit down the ground. Their bowling line-up with their big tall fast bowlers, was tough to adjust to on this pitch. But with low totals, it's all about partnerships. On a wicket like this I wanted to start of batting on leg so that I had room outside off for the cut, and later on I started jumping into the off side.

Brendon McCullum is the Man of the Match.

9:13pm Trinbago race to the top of the table. Can't help but think that this result was made with one over, the second of the game from Pierre, where three wickets fell. Tridetns continue to be sloppy, both with the bat and in the field, and their strategy is posing more questions than answers every day. Just like yesterday, they had the opposition flattened, before throwing it away with sloppy work in the field. McCullum went berserk with a 42-ball 66 but barely had support at the other end. It wasn't to be a problem with a target of only 129.

16.3SPD Smith to DJ Bravo, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, drills it through cover and breaks into a jig. Trinbago made work out of this, but it's still a big win. Tossed up at off and Bravo hammers it inside-out through cover.
16.2SPD Smith to DJ Bravo, No run, short of a length on leg, flicked to short fine.
16.1SPD Smith to BB McCullum, OUT, No run, well, it's two in two and Smith has an impeccable record again. Lobs this up at off stump, McCullum looks for the big sweep, slices it into the mid-off region and Smith runs backwards to take it.

Sloppy from Tridents again. A dropped catch and a 17-run over and their opponents are favourites again. Irfan is coming back into the attack.

AlistairDiamond: "As we saw last night, aside from the stars Irfan and Riaz the Tridents' bowling is very dodgy. Steve Smith's pies started the rot that snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Nurse's wicket is exactly what Irfan needs. Come on bowlers and fielders, support the stars and snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat this time!"
