END OF OVER:
20 | 3 Runs 1 Wkt | T&T: 124/8 (23 runs required, RR: 6.20)

  • Ravi Rampaul1 (5b)
  • Sherwin Ganga1 (1b)
  • Sulieman Benn4-0-15-2

So, that's the end of that. The Superstars avoid embarrassment as they emerge victorious by 22 runs. The main man was Sylvester Joseph, whose unbeaten 45 from 31 balls provided vital impetus to his team's innings. In reply, T&T never really got going. They looked as though they were pacing themselves at one stage, but it turned out they only had one gear, and Sulieman Benn's figures of 2 for 15 from four overs put the skids under their ambitions.

Still, it's been an entertaining start to the tournament, with the promise of much more to follow. I'm Andrew Miller, and join me again tomorrow for England against Middlesex.

Benn to Rampaul, 1 leg bye, off the pads and the batsmen jog through for a single to wrap up the proceedings. In the end, the Superstars were too super for the Stanford champions, but they were made to sweat for their victory

Benn to Rampaul, no run, Rampaul has swung with such massive intent that he has lost his bat! Square leg comes under fire from a lump of timber while the ball nestles in the wicketkeeper's gloves ... all manner of referrals going on, firstly for a no-ball, secondly for a catch at the wicket. Everything is very inconclusive, but not out is the verdict. The only person celebrating is Rampaul ...

Taylor to Cooper, no run, extraordinary delivery. Such a slow and looping bouncer that Cooper had enough time to play five shots, and miss with them all ...

Taylor to Cooper, FOUR runs, that's an exceptional shot! Makes room to cream the ball through the covers. Cooper dooper!

A big ask now ... but anything can happen ...

Mohammed to Ramdin, FOUR runs, now that's a strike! On the up, over the covers, and one bounce, into the T&T dressing room. A good inside-out strike to revive his team's hopes
