That is that then. Not the end of action for the day though. Join us as we follow the final game of the day between the Dark View Explorers and Fort Charlotte Strikers at 10 PM IST. 
...
Captain. Opener. Finisher. An all-in-one performance from Desron Maloney today. 9 wicket win for La Soufriere Hikers. Some fantastic batting from Brown and Maloney today. They seemed to be batting on a very different surface from what the other teams have played on today.
...
5.5 Casnel Morris to Desron Maloney, Maloney finishes the game with a FOUR! Outside off and no pace on the ball, Maloney arches back and powerfully slices it away over backward point for a boundary!
...
5.4 Casnel Morris to Desron Maloney, hits it straight back to the bowler.
...
5.3 Casnel Morris to Desron Maloney, SIX! Maloney is in a hurry. Short and asking to be smashed, Maloney obliges and smacks the ball all the way onto the roof! New ball please!
...
5.2 Casnel Morris to Desron Maloney, cut away to point but for no run.
...
5.1 Casnel Morris to Desron Maloney, overpitched and outside off, Maloney powers it along the carpet towards the cover boundary! This has been quite a batting display from this man today.
...
The Hikers need 13 off 30. And in walks Dillon Douglas to join his captain in the middle.
...
4.6 Ray Charles to Salvan Browne, OUT! First bit of respite for the Rangers! Slower length delivery outside off, Browne is early into his drive and chips an easy catch to Kesrick Williams at covers. Does seem like it is too little too late though.
...
4.5 Ray Charles to Salvan Browne, off pace delivery on the pads, Browne misses the flick and finally, a dot ball after a long time.
...
4.4 Ray Charles to Salvan Browne, Browne cuts to backward point, a misfield yet again, and the batsmen run back for the second.
...
4.3 Ray Charles to Salvan Browne, slower ball on the stumps but Charles shortened his length, Browne read the pace perfectly and thread the gap between square leg and mid-wicket for four. It is almost too easy for La Soufriere Hikers today.
...
4.2 Ray Charles to Desron Maloney, short ball outside off, Maloney cuts it away fiercely to the cover fielder for a single.
...
4.1 Ray Charles to Salvan Browne, length ball driven to covers, misfield from Williams allows a single. The Hikers are completely in control at the moment.
...
Poor over from Kesrick Williams in the circumstances. The notebook seems well settled in his pocket for now. The Hikers move to 50 off four overs. They need another 21 runs in 36 balls.
...
3.6 Kesrick Williams to Desron Maloney, full and onto the pads, Maloney calmly taps it towards mid-wicket and the batsmen cross for a brace.
...
3.5 Kesrick Williams to Desron Maloney, SIX! Poor, poor bowling from the Rangers captain. Short and almost a nothing delivery, Maloney arches back and smashes it far over the square leg boundary for a six!
...
3.5 Kesrick Williams to Desron Maloney, a good ball from Williams, but he oversteps! Free hit coming up for Maloney!
...
3.4 Kesrick Williams to Desron Maloney, FOUR! Length ball asking to be punished, Maloney smashes it straight over long on, one bounce and four! That fell just short of the boundary line.
...
3.3 Kesrick Williams to Salvan Browne, slower delivery, Browne misses his pull but the keeper lets it go through his legs and allows a single. Mediocre wicketkeeping on that occasion.
...
3.2 Kesrick Williams to Desron Maloney, short and outside off, Maloney pulls it to Currency at square leg for one. 
...
3.1 Kesrick Williams to Salvan Browne, Williams begins with a short ball outside leg, Browne tucks it down to square leg for a single.
...
The score is now at 34/0 in 3 overs. La Soufriere need 36 off 7 overs.
...
2.6 Kenneth Dembar to Salvan Browne, arm ball drifting into the batsman this time, Browne flays it away to covers for a single.
...
2.5 Kenneth Dembar to Salvan Browne, fuller from Dembar, Browne looks to sweep but he fails to connect.
...
2.4 Kenneth Dembar to Salvan Browne, quicker ball outside off stump, Browne looks to cut away but misses.
...
2.3 Kenneth Dembar to Desron Maloney, quicker and on the pads, Maloney clears his front foot but only gets an inside edge towards square leg. 
...
2.2 Kenneth Dembar to Desron Maloney, SIX! Smashed and out of the ground! Dembar pitches it right in the slot for Maloney who lifts it handsomely over long on for a maximum!

That went long and it looks like this could be a long day for the Rangers (not really, this could end soon).
...
2.1 Kenneth Dembar to Desron Maloney, length ball on the stumps, defended back to the bowler.
...
The Hikers need 45 from 48 balls now. Great going so far.
...
1.6 Kimali Williams to Desron Maloney, good comeback from Williams. Shortish length outside off, Maloney is happy to guide it down to third man for a single. 
...
1.5 Kimali Williams to Desron Maloney, FOUR! Dispatched away to the mid-wicket fence! Short and asking to be hit, Maloney stands tall and punches it away powerfully through mid-wicket for a four. Pretty sure the sound of the ball hitting the bat would have been heard around St. Vincent.
...
1.4 Kimali Williams to Desron Maloney, way outside off stump on that occasion.
...
1.4 Kimali Williams to Salvan Browne, drives it down the ground for a single. 
...
1.3 Kimali Williams to Desron Maloney, What was that? Maloney looked for the pull and edged it high up. Currency drops what should have been a regulation catch.
...
1.2 Kimali Williams to Salvan Browne, short and angling into Browne, the batsman plays it down to point for a single.
...
1.1 Kimali Williams to Desron Maloney, length ball on the stumps, Maloney misses the flick and the ball deflects off the pads towards covers. 
...
Great start to the innings from the Hikers. 16 from that over and Maloney is off to a flyer.
...
0.6 Nigel Small to Salvan Browne, short ball outside off and cut away for four behind backward point!
...
0.6 Nigel Small to Salvan Browne, SIX! First one of the innings! Length ball and dispatched over covers for a six!
...
0.5 Nigel Small to Desron Maloney, finally Maloney gets bat on ball but only for a single. 
...
0.4 Nigel Small to Desron Maloney, no run. Ones watching on the stream would have thought that was a six from the commentator's voice.
...
0.3 Nigel Small to Desron Maloney, no run.
...
0.2 Nigel Small to Desron Maloney, wide outside off again, Maloney looks to cut but gets an edge, spilled by the short third man fielder.
...
0.1 Nigel Small to Salvan Browne, yet another wide outside off, keeper fails to collect yet again. Make that two big wides.
...
0.1 Nigel Small to Desron Maloney, poor start for Small, sprays it wide outside off. Small starts off with a BIG wide.
...
Okay, we're back. More importantly, the players are back as well. Desron Maloney and Salvan Brown make their way out to the middle. And Nigel Small has the ball in his hand.
...
71 to get for the La Soufriere Hikers. If the last match is anything to go by, that is a very gettable 71. However, it remains to be seen if Desron Maloney and his team can make their way home. Stay tuned to find out :)
...
Good over from Delzell to finish the innings. 70/5 in the end. Very similar score to the first match. But it could have been a lot worse. Some of that famous West Indian big hitting seems to have taken the Botanic Garden Rangers to a respectable total. La Soufriere Hikers now need 71 to win in their ten overs.
...
Botanic Garden Rangers finish with 70/5 from 10 overs.
