That brings an end to our coverage of this match. Many miles away, in Pallekele, India have lost Wriddhiman Saha early on the second day. Do switch tabs to follow our coverage of the third and final Test between Sri Lanka and India. From Sreshth and myself, it's goodbye!

"Not nervous at all. Kevon Cooper batted at No. 9 and he's a very decent player," says Dwayne Bravo. "I think the bowlers put us in the game. I said to my guys this is the moment where the game really begins and Shadab Khan and Sunil Narine in those eight overs really changed the game. The Universe Boss versus the Champion is going to be a showdown. I'm going to wait for him to come to my hometown and we and our fans will deal with him."

"I though 160 on this wicket would have given us a better chance", says Kieron Pollard. "We have to work on the catching. I just think the guys need to take a good look at themselves. Four games and eight catches going down is not acceptable. Fielding is an attitude and a mindset. Somethings, you just can't control. There are teams that are worse off than us, but we have a couple of days off. Hopefully, we can do some introspection and come back and do well."

Sunil Narine is the Man of the Match. "I'm enjoying my batting at the moment," he says. "I wouldn't say it's better than the IPL, but the crowd support is brilliant. I want to go from strength to strength."

12.57am That chase was all about one man, and yet, it ended up being so much more than that. It shouldn't have been this close. Knight Riders came so very close to committing hara-kiri but one moment of calm, clear thinking sealed it for them. It's all they needed for most of the fag end of the chase with less than a run a ball needed. But they paid the price for attempting million-dollar strokes through some late wickets. Tridents have only themselves to blame. Brilliant as Narine's innings was, he gave the Tridents enough and more chances only to be let off at least twice. The dew has seriously high, so you could feel sorry for Tridents, but teams rarely get away with letting simple opportunities slip away. Narine's career-best T20 score makes it four wins in five for Knight Riders and they remain on top of the table.

Springer to Scantlebury-Searles, OUT, and there goes another one. Harmless full toss and Scantlebury-Searles heaves it. But off all the spaces in the leg side field he could have played that through, he has played that straight into the hands of straightish midwicket. Catching practice for the fielder

Springer to Scantlebury-Searles, FOUR, they go for the big shots nonetheless, but this one's nicely played. Has to fetch it from outside off but the length is full and he heaves it off the middle through midwicket where the boundary is unprotected

Springer to Narine, OUT, what is going on here? Narine this time has perished trying to play an overambitious shot. Eight off 12 needed and you have to wonder what the need was to do that. Full toss outside off and Narine slashes too hard at it, misses the timing and extra cover runs to his right to take it

Parnell to Scantlebury-Searles, FOUR, shot. Good shot under pressure. Sees the short ball coming into him and pulls. Does not try to hit it too hard or anything, just times it well through midwicket. Controlled shot. This is what Knight Riders need from their batsmen

Parnell to Shadab Khan, OUT, needlessly steps down the track and Parnell drags the length back. Ends up coming on to him at an awkward height and he tries to awkwardly tries to pull, gets a bottom edge to the stumps. Knight Riders are needlessly making this harder for themselves

Springer to DJ Bravo, OUT, takes out the off-stump. Bravo plays across the line and pays the price. Was pretty needless, really, given the equation.Length ball, cuts back in sharply off the seam and beats the closing face of the bat to take out the top of off

Springer to Narine, FOUR, shot! That is thumped. Brute force from Narine. And it deserved every bit of harsh treatment. Full, wide, outside off, giving him all the room to free his arms, and Narine carves it over extra cover
