First points on the board for the Patriots then. They stay at the bottom though. We have a bit of a break now, with a wounded Jamaica Tallawahs ready to take on Guyana Amazon Warriors for revenge at 5.30 pm local (2130 GMT). Do join us back at that time. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Victorious St Kitts And Nevis Patriots captain, Rayad Emrit, is happy that they could register their first win. Stresses that finally, one set batsan could bat through and the effect showed. On the Lewis-Ramdin stand, Emrit says that it was an important partnership but perhaps they batted a bit slow in the middle overs. But adds that they had the confidence in Lewis that he could make up for that. On the young Jon-Russ Jaggesar, Rayad says that he is a great talent but overall, he believes that they gave 15 runs a bit too many. On the pitch, Emrit says that this is not a slow one like Tarouba but has something in it for both, bowlers and batsmen.

Barbados Tridents skipper, Jason Holder, feels that 151 was a par score. Perhaps 5-10 runs shy but he believes his team fought hard. Feels that it was not an easy wicket to bat on and definitely not one where you could start hitting from the word go. Believes that unlike the Patriots, no one from his team could convert their start. Believes that the bowlers did really well and feels sad for the young Nyeem Young, who was doing exceptionally well till that final over.

EVIN LEWIS HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Lewis says that it great to have won the game. Says that he was looking to give a good start and then make use of that, staying till the end. On his partnership with Ramdin, Evin says that Ramdin is the main batsman in the middle order with Dunk coming in towards the end to finish things off. Believes that this win could change their fortunes around in this tournament. Ends by saying that he enjoyed his innings as he always backs himself to do well on this ground.

Please stay tuned for the presentation...

Earlier, the Tridents huffed and puffed their way to 151/7. It was a team effort with batsmen making 20s and stitching on decent partnerships. Newbie Jaggesar was the most effective bowler, with 2 wickets.

Jason Holder tried everything. First, he bowled a frugal spell, trying to contain the batsmen. Then, he had Rashid Khan bamboozle in the middle overs. But then, he tried to give confidence to the youngsters, like the Walshs, Reifers, Youngs and the Mayers. They did decently too, except for that final over. But why overlook Santner? Santner bowled just 2 overs. He could have done better with Ramdin on strike.

Lewis' change in gear put the Tridents on the back foot. Holder started to run out of ideas but then, the heat started taking its toll. Both, Ramdin and Lewis started to tire down and were mistiming their shots. From a position of great strength, the Patriots lost their way, with 20 needed from 9 balls. However, a little bit of nervous bowling in the last over helped them get through.

The Patriots were in trouble at 41/2 in the Powerplay but Lewis found an able ally in Denesh Ramdin. The duo added 78 for the third wicket, of which Lewis scored 56! The plan was clear, give the strike to Lewis and Lewis alone.

152 was supposed to be a tricky total to chase on this deck. 140 was considered to be a winning one. Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis strode out and did what they always do - bash the ball. That 34-run opening stand gave some momentum but after that, it was all Lewis.
