Pollard has some message scribbled on his inner tee that we can't quite comprehend. The six he hit makes it three times in a row for Trinidad & Tobago. They make it to Champions league and it would be fun to see their full strength squad representing them there, which unfortunately won't happen

Now we know what's scribbled on Pollard's tee. It says "Congratulations to T&T team. We did it". The captain of this team is Dinesh Ramdin

Would the match result have been any different if Beaton or the keeper took that catch of Lewis? Probably, as T&T didn't quite have the momentum then. Guyana, in the end, have their batting to blame

Permaul feels that Guyana never got the momentum as they never got the wickets and never had a partnership going. He thanks all the fans in the stands and also the fans back home

Ramdin feels that winning the toss and sticking to their plans was important. He feels Gabriel was quick today and adds that he stepped up in absence of Rampaul

Shannon Gabriel is the man of the match and he says he was working hard in the run-up to the tournament and stuck to his lengths. Bishop says his replies have to be a little longer as he was answering them briefly

Darren Bravo is awarded with the Man of the series award

That's it from all of us here. It was fun bringing the coverage to you through the length of tournament. Good night from Chandan, Gopi and Thilak
