What does Wednesday have in store for us? DJ Bravo. DJ Bravo. Yes, the Trinbago Knight Riders are back in action and they take on St Lucia Zouks at 10 am local (1400 GMT). Then at 5.30 pm local (2130 GMT), the Tallawahs are back, this time to face Barbados Tridents. Do join us at those said times. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

End of the Tuesday double header. Patriots sneaked a nail-biting win in the morning, over the Tridents, while the Tallawahs and the Warriors competed pretty well to claim a prize for poorer batting. Jamaica have won but that does nothing much to their position in the table, as they stay 4th and Guyana, 3rd. However, it does take their net run rate into positive.

Victorious Jamaica Tallawahs skipper, Rovman Powell, says he is happy, especially after what happened in the previous encounter. Praises Fidel Edwards and Mujeeb Ur Rahman for the early blows with the ball. Bluntly says that the team is not happy with the way this total was chased down with the batsmen just throwing their wickets away through some poor shot-making. Wants his team to put in the hard yards during training. On Chadwick Walton's poor form, Powell smiles and says that he is not concerned yet as Walton has looked in good touch at the nets.

Guyana Amazon Warriors captain, Chris Green, admits that early wickets cost his team the match as they lost momentum and could never consolidate, except during that stand between Pooran and Taylor. Feels that it was a 130-wicket but 108 was way below par and batters need to stand up now. On the wicket, Green reckons that it was slow and low which put doubts in the minds of the batsmen, who could not decide whether to attack or defend. Further says that there were too many dot balls than usual in this game because of that. Wants his batsmen to learn from how Evin Lewis played his knock for the Patriots earlier in the day and play a long innings. Praises the efforts of the fielders and bowlers and just wants his batsmen to bat better.

MUJEEB UR RAHMAN HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH.

Who would be your Man Of The Match? Edwards? Mujeeb? Bonner? The presentation is coming up...

Earlier, another poor batting display saw the Warriors make just 108/9. Only three batsmen reached double figures with Fidel Edwards and Mujeeb Ur Rahman sharing 6 wickets between themselves. They may have a great bowling attack, the Warriors, but that just does not mean the batsmen keep putting on average scores.

Cannot honestly say whether the Warriors bowled really well or not because most of the wickets were due to abject batting. The Tallawahs have just two aspects to their batting - dots or boundaries. Not much in between. Even here, they consumed 55 dot balls out of 108. A bit too much. Imran Tahir and Ashmead Nedd were the pick of the bowlers, not giving much, while the others were not as effective, as they were in the previous encounter.

Bonner and Russell played it perfectly. Whether the target is 109 or 209, you need to spend some time in the middle, even if it be a belter of a pitch. And players like Russell can always catch up, as we have witnessed so many times in the past. Sweet striking towards the end from both these batsmen would have given some sort of a lift to that net run rate. They added an unbeaten 51 for the 6th wicket.

Talking about working on the batting, Jamaica too, need to have a look. They cannot be dependent on Andre Russell and need to bat more sensibly. They picked an extra batsman in Jermaine Blackwood but even then, the approach was shocking, with no batsman in the top 5, barring Blackwood, looking to stay out in the middle.
