Trinbago Knight Riders won by 4 wickets
Player of the match: Sunil Narine
What a game we have had as an opener for the season. The Knight Riders have always been a formidable team in the league. The Warriors have also made a mark that they are a force to reckon with in this season.

We have one more match coming our way today. Defending champions Barbados Tridents will take on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The match will start at 05:30 p.m. local time (03:00 a.m. IST). That's all from me and Shashwat then. Do tune in for the second match of the day. Ciao!
Sunil Narine has been adjudged the man of the match for his half-century and figures of 2 for 19 with the ball.
What an excellent game of cricket. Defending 144 runs, the Warriors were right on top during the powerplay, giving away just 30 runs and picking an important wicket of Simmons. Colin Munro's innings did not last long, but provided a much needed impetus to the innings with 17 runs off just 7 balls. Even though Sunil Narine did not get to play a lot of deliveries in the powerplay (which would have been the main objective sending him at the top), he made immense scoring 50 runs from just 28 balls with 4 big hits. DM Bravo made a steady 30 and made sure that TKR did not lose its way.

Skipper Chris Green will be really frustrated with the amount of extras that his team gave away. They bowled a total of 11 wides in their innings, which became crucial in the end with the match going down to the last over. Naveen-ul-Haq was the pick of the bowlers for the Guyana side, picking 2 crucial wickets and giving away just 21 runs from 3.4 overs. Keemo Paul also bowled well, if the wides are not taken into consideration. He returned with figures of 1 for 21 in 3 overs.
Trinbago Knight Riders have defeated Guyana Amazon Warriors by 4 wickets with 2 balls to spare.
16.4 Naveen-Ul-Haq to Dwayne Bravo, FOUR! Bravo finishes it off in style! Slower length delivery well outside off stump and Bravo sizes it up early. He waits for the ball to arrive before smashing it over cover for a boundary to finish the game!
16.4 Naveen-Ul-Haq to Dwayne Bravo, back of a length delivery down the leg side and the umpire signals a wide, despite Pooran's extensive appeal. There was a sound when it passed the batsman, and the replays show that it might have brushed the thighpad. 2 runs from 3 balls needed.
16.3 Naveen-Ul-Haq to Darren Bravo, OUT! O MY WORD! Slower delivery on a back of a length and Darren Bravo is utterly flummoxed by the change of pace. He is too early into his shot and offers a tame catch to Hetmyer at covers, who dives forward and completes the catch. That's a big wicket for the Warriors. And more importantly, 3 required off 3 balls now.
16.2 Naveen-Ul-Haq to Dwayne Bravo, slower bumper outside off stump and Dwayne Bravo waits, waits and waits a little more before pulling it away to deep square leg for a single. 3 required from 4 balls.
16.1 Naveen-Ul-Haq to Darren Bravo, slower length delivery outside off stump and Bravo hammers it down the ground to long off for a single. 4 required from 5 balls.
5 runs required off the last over. Young Afghan pacer Naveen-ul-Haq will bowl it.
15.6 Keemo Paul to Darren Bravo, back of a length delivery outside off stump and Bravo drags it away to deep mid wicket to pick up a single and retain strike for the final over
15.5 Keemo Paul to Darren Bravo, slower bumper outside off stump and Bravo swings at least a couple of days early. He misses the delivery by a mile and that is another dot. That was REALLY slow. Bravo could have had a tea, come back to bat and still would have found some time to play that.
15.4 Keemo Paul to Darren Bravo, SIX! THAT COULD BE THAT! Length delivery outside off stump and Darren Bravo just lays back before caressing it way over the cover fence. What a shot! A bit of Brian Lara in there too! That looked CLASSY!
15.3 Keemo Paul to Darren Bravo, full toss well outside off and the umpire does not signal for a wide. Interesting! Things getting too close for comfort for the Knight Riders! That was a wayward full toss outside the off stump. Paul is really lucky to have missed out.
15.2 Keemo Paul to Dwayne Bravo, length delivery at the stumps and Dwayne Bravo punches that one down the ground to get off the mark. 12 off 10 required.
15.2 Keemo Paul to Dwayne Bravo, length delivery well down the leg side and a bit of exercise for the umpire. No no no Paul! This is not what the Warriors want at this stage.
Both the Bravo brothers are in the crease now!
15.1 Keemo Paul to Tim Seifert, OUT! STUNNER BY KING! Wayward delivery outside off stump and Seifert walks all the way to the tram lines before looking to hit over mid off. He gets it off the toe end towards mid off, where King throws out a paw and completes a stunning one-handed grab! King makes immense for the easy catch that he had dropped earlier in the evening.
14 runs required from the last two overs. The six off the previous over took off a lot of pressure from the Knight Riders after the wicket of Pollard. Keemo Paul will bowl the crucial penultimate over.
TKR 131/4 after 15 overs.
14.6 Imran Tahir to Tim Seifert, another full delivery outside off stump and Seifert compactly drives down the ground to pick up another single and keep the scoreboard ticking
