9.45pm And that is that from Warner Park tonight. An interesting and deceptively competitive match, turned by one massive over. I was especially excited to see the pace that Joseph and Anderson Phillip generated today. Anyway, TKR are odds-on to finish in the top two. The Patriots will be playing another game tomorrow, against the Tallawahs, and will hope to recover some momentum there and continue to challenge for the playoffs. Until next time, it's goodbye from me and Ranjith.

Dwayne Bravo: "We didn't get a good start at home. It's good to win cricket games (four in a row), especially away from home. I have a good bunch of professional players who are hungry for success. We go back home now with some momentum. We want to keep winning. Winning is an attitude, and the aim is to finish in the top two. Well done to the entire team, especially Anderson Phillip who's come in for his first game (of the season). (Just told myself) to keep my eye on the ball and keep focused. Joseph is a very skillful bowler and has pace as well. He will learn from his mistakes - today was my day."

Chris Gayle: "I think credit to the bowlers, I thought they bowled well. Young Joseph bowled very well apart from that one over. Even though we lost early wickets I thought we were in the game. We're one win away, and hopefully once we get that everything will come together. Tomorrow is another game, quick turnaround, get this out of the system and up against Jamaica tomorrow."

Colin Munro is the Player of the Match. "The way DJ batted towards the end, we were 20 over par or 30 over par on that surface," he says. "The game was even after 10 overs (of the chase), and we decided to go wide and full and took the game away. It helps when you have a big target, but it shows we can bowl at the death. We only gave away something like 70 in the last 10. The way I played today showed I can adapt to different surfaces and different situations."

Dasun : "Very odd to see Mahmudullah at 9, even though he's a middle order finisher. May have not been an extreme difference, but it could've helped St. Kitts' NRR."

AlistairDiamond: "AND Narine has taken some good catches and effected a good run out today with a great throw. His wickets and runs are just a statistical blip I think, caused by chance, not form."

9.33pm Massive, massive win for TKR. Their end-overs batting was spectacular, but they've also bowled very well to defend 199. Differing approaches from the two seam attacks - where Patriots bowled back of a length and looked to deny the batsmen room, TKR, especially in the latter half of the chase, went full and looked to deny elevation. A good innings from Evin Lewis at the top of the innings, but once he was dismissed, the required rate just kept climbing.
