Commentary

Henriques is stunned, his figures have been destroyed. Pollard's the toast of T&T and he celebrates the victory with his team-mates who rush onto the field and live it up like there' s nothing else. T&T have won with nine balls to spare, and in the end it appears to be a convincing win when it actually wasn't. They were 118 for 6 when Ramdin fell in the 16th over, and they needed 53 in 28.. They only needed 19 deliveries to knock them off, all thanks to Pollard who gave Henriques a treatment he'll remember for the rest of his life. No doubts over who's the Man of the Match, we'll get you the presentation details in a bit. I can't remember seeing too many games where fortunes have turned 180 degrees for either team within a matter of a few minutes.

Vaidya: "Looks like Katich had to go somewhere in a hurry, finished it off in a hurry by giving the ball to Henriques. You don't give someone who's been slaughtered for 27 another over. Its like inflicting further torture on an already tortured soul!"

Balaji: "That 27 run over was like a stick cricket over... God, T&T are good"

Henriques is the most economical bowler of the game, and gets a prize. I was kidding, it's Sherwin Ganga.

Pollard is the Man of the Match: "I think I came in at a crucial time, and the team was in trouble. It was a team effort, but there is always room for improvement. I always back myself to do it for the team when it needs it. Ramdin did well, and I realised it was my responsibility to win it for T&T. All of those shots were my favourites," he says.

Katich: "A fantastic effort at the end. We got blown away. They kept us down in the middle of our innings. Our guys did a great job [with the bat] but that last minute blitz blew us away. It was a great wicket, great outfield."

Ganga: "It's going to be a carnival atmosphere back in T&T. We love to party. It was a great effort to restrict NSW to 170, and we knew we had the right players to chase this down. I had faith in the bowlers, but we pulled things back well. We were not under pressure chasing 170, we knew we had players in our camp to achieve this. I can't find a word to describe it [Pollard's innings] and he's not the only player we have who is looking forward to playing a great innings for our team."

Tapish sends us this: "Kieron Pollard has just won himself a nice fat IPL contract for the next 3 seasons!"

Both teams had carried two points coming into this phase of the competition, and T&T have increased their tally to four, boosting their chances of making it to the semi-finals. NSW will be demoralised, but they still stand a fair chance of making it to the next stage. But pity the poor Henriques!

That's all we have from here, folks. Thanks for tuning in, sending us your feedback and join us again tomorrow for another double-header. The other teams might find it hard to measure up to this performance, but if they do, it just makes for an even more entertaining tournament. Until then, it's goodbye from all of us at Cricinfo!

Henriques to Pollard, SIX runs, All over! One of the flattest sixes you'll ever see, full and wide and he bludgeons it over long-off

T&T should coast from here, just the formalities need to be taken care off. 6 off 10, it's all theirs

Henriques to Pollard, SIX runs, that's six! It's all over, the decisive blow, came off the meat, low full toss again and he hits him through the line over his head for a flat six

12 off 11

Henriques to Pollard, FOUR runs, he continues to punish him! Low full toss on middle, smashes it between long-on and deep midwicket for a bouindary

16 needed off 12, with four wickets in hand you've got to favour the batting team. They've stuck with Henriques, remarkable! Can he make amends? He's facing his nemesis. Third man and fine leg are up.

END OF OVER:
18 | 8 Runs | T&T: 155/6

Lee to Ganga, no run, dot ball, short and it was there to pull, he mistimed it back to the bowler

Lee to Pollard, 1 run, takes a single, full on the off, digs it out wide of cover for a single

Lee to Pollard, FOUR runs, edged and four! Short of a length, tried to open the face and got more than what he bargained for, thick outside edge to the third-man boundary

What will he do now? Can he finish it off, it's been a gem of a knock so far
