That's all from the first match. Thanks for joining us. Goodbye

S Ganga is the MoM. He says, "We let this game get a bit tight for us. Despite losing early wickets, we trusted out batting to do it, though. Knowing we have played at this venue gives us some bonus. We also have some West Indies players in the side, that helps us too."

Mahela Udawatte, the losing captain, says. "Spinners did well for us, but defending 138 is very difficult. It's a two-paced pitch, hard to bat on."

Darren Ganga says, "It was too close for comfort, but in the end we had six deliveries remaining. This is going to add to our confidence. Most of our batters got good starts, but it's about taking it forward."

S Ganga has played an absolute blinder after the rest of T&T line-up contrived to make this a close-run thing. Bravo suffered his embarrassment but didn't give up, and stayed unbeaten. The game truly was set up in the field. "I say, you have got a good mouth to have said what is up on that 19th over!!" Praveen, they would say in West Indies that I put the goat mout 'pon the 19th over

Janoda to S Ganga, SIX runs, sarts off with a slower length ball outside off, and Ganga, who is playing a blinder, lofts this inside-out, over long-off. Sampath, right at the edge of the boundary, jumps full length, gets a hand to it, but that's about as much as he can do. Top effort but not good enough

Nineteen required off two. Remember Simmons's 19th over went for 19. Janoda will bowl the 19th of this innings

GACR Perera to Bravo, no run, Bravo is unlucky. He has smashed this low full toss dead straight and into the stumps at the non-striker's end. Perera chooses to not go for the run-out off the ricochet
