Luke Ronchi is Player of the Match. "Wicket got better as the game went on, in the first innings it was jumping, but it changed with a bit of dew around. I just have a clear mind, and everything works out better. I've been working on that, will keep working on that." And with those fireworks from Ronchi to boot, it's time for me to say goodbye. Hope to see you tomorrow. Cheers.

How easy has Ronchi made this look? He took the surface completely out of the equation. This wasn't all that easy a surface to simply come out and bash the ball like he did, but in doing so, he's displayed his quality and improved batsmanship in the format. IPL talent scouts, are you watching? Guyana Amazon Warriors go top.

Tridents were a win away from lifting themselves off the bottom, but have been shellacked. They may yet move out of the bottom spot, with two games in hand as compared to Stars, but not sure that could help their qualification chances greatly. Their net run rate has taken a massive dent.

Mohammad Irfan to Delport, FOUR runs, helped over the keeper's head. Just a feather, even a leap can't get him the catch. Game set and match, the Tridents have slipped to yet another loss. Luke Ronchi, take a bow. What a knock.

CK Holder to Delport, SIX runs, what audacity, what confidence. That's into the media center. Too full, he takes a step back into the crease and then presses forward with the swing to clear the ropes. Massive hit

Wahab Riaz to Hetmyer, OUT, has Smith taken it at long-on? This is magnificent. Clobbered to the boundary where Smith takes it literally a centimeter inside the skirting, but knows for sure that he's going over. Just as he is about to, he tosses the ball in the air, goes out, regathers himself, comes back in and because the ball has been tossed high, there is enough time for him to come back in and complete the grab. The best part of the catch was Smith had to go sideways in taking that because the ball swirled a bit, this threw him off balance, so that he has managed to pull this off shows great flexibility and core strength. Simply magnificent.

Wahab Riaz to Hetmyer, FOUR runs, carved away over cover, didn't get hold of that but once the ball bounces past the infield, it speeds away.

JO Holder to Ronchi, SIX runs, short and slipping down leg, Ronchi gets inside the line and helps this over the fine leg boundary. Scoring runs for fun, this is too easy. Holder has kept on bowling short, and has been punished every single time.

Nurse to Hetmyer, SIX runs, this one's too full, he's down on one knee as he slog sweeps this way over deep midwicket. Stylish

Mohammad Irfan to Hetmyer, SIX runs, pulled from outside off, he's picked the bones out of that. Picked the length early and belted this. Strong forearms

Nurse to Walton, OUT, steps out and lifts this straight to the long-on fielder. Didn't get the elevation, good catch. That should give them some respite.

DR Smith to Walton, FOUR runs, picks the gap. What can they do to prevent the bleeding? This is very ordinary bowling. Too short and sliding into middle and leg, glances this past short fin leg.

DR Smith to Walton, FOUR runs, slower and fuller outside off, he takes a step outside the line and steers this past the diving short third man fielder. Lovely touch

Wahab Riaz to Walton, FOUR runs, full toss and walloped across the line over midwicket. Juicy, he could've hit there wherever he pleased. Helped that there was no one deep in the leg side.

JO Holder to Ronchi, FOUR runs, pulled, beats fine leg. Too short, slipping down and punished. This is poor bowling from Holder, not what you expect from a man of his experience.

JO Holder to Ronchi, FOUR runs, length outside off, Ronchi opens the bat face just a bit to hit this over cover point. What awareness

JO Holder to Ronchi, SIX runs, slips this down leg, uses the angle to send this swinging over deep backward square leg. Exhilarating stuff!

Wahab Riaz to Walton, 5 wides, shoddy work by the keeper down leg. Wrong line, yes but should've been stopped on the bounce.

Mohammad Irfan to Ronchi, FOUR runs, mistimed slap back over the bowler's head, for a second, Irfan may have believed there was a chance at mid-on with Nurse running sideways at mid-on. Just eluded him.

CK Holder to Ronchi, FOUR runs, straight back over mid-on. Full and angling in, he just lofted it through the line.
