So that is it from the second game of this year's CPL! The action though continues on the 19th as Jamaica Tallawahs take on St Lucia Zouks followed by Guyana taking on Patriots. Do join us for all the live action. The first game begins at 1000 local (1400 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!

Rayad Emrit says they were in good positions a lot of times but let them get away with it. He feels they scored 20 runs more than they should have. They conceded a few extra runs towards the last overs and chasing 150 on a tricky wicket is not easy. Adds Allen was missed and probably the result would have been different if he was there. Ends by saying, there is a lot to improve on, they need to learn quickly as to what length they need to bowl and they need to read the wicket quickly.

Jason Holder says it is an important win, they wanted to start well and they have done that. Further adds it was a strange game, they lost wickets at regular intervals but the partnerships at the end was very good and credits Rashid and Santner to get them to a competitive total. Mentions the pitch was a touch slow and the pacers had it easier than the seamers but their spinners showed a lot of quality and bowled well. Ends by saying, their batting has always been inconsistent but they need to fire and he hopes they can do well in the upcoming games.

Man of the Match, Mitchell Santner says they bowled well up front, they went really hard with the bat at the start but they did well to get to 150. Mentions they thought it was competitive total, the wicket was a touch slow and Jason Holder started off well. Further adds it was not easy to grip the ball as it was wet but they did a very good job collectively.

Earlier in the day, after electing to bowl, the Patriots did a fine job with the ball courtesy Cottrell, Emrit and Tanvir. They would have been happy at the halfway mark when they kept Tridents to something just above 150. The defending champions though proved why they were the winners last year by defending a total which at one stage seemed under par.

So the defending champions have started this campaign off with a win! A hard-fought win to be honest! There were times in this innings where they were behind the 8-ball game but they did not lose hope, won the crunch moments and in the end came out on top. Defending a moderate total, they needed early wickets and they got both the openers quickly. Dunk and da Silva then got the chase back on track but Dunk gifted his wicket away. Ramdin then came in and played cleverly. They seemed in control till the 18th over but Rashid's final over completely changed the game. Two wickets and just the three runs saw the Patriots needing 14 per over in the last two which they could not score.

There is no extra as this is bowled full and on off, Tanvir hits it down to long on for one. TRIDENTS WIN BY 6 RUNS!

6 runs.

Kyle Mayers to Sohail Tanvir

WIDE! They need a few more of these do the Patriots. Way outside off, left alone. Wided.

1 19.4
Kyle Mayers to Joshua Da Silva

Another single! So if two legal deliveries are bowled, Tridents can't lose. It is short and on middle, da Silva pulls it through square leg for one.
