So a one-sided win for Lions. That's all we have for this game. Do hop onto the other game that starts in a bit. Thanks for joining us. Cheers

Presentation time
Alviro Petersen: "It's always nice to contribute to the team success. As a whole it is a team performance, and we are happy to be the best side on the field today. Obviously after the 10th over, we knew we could push the run-rate up a bit. Richard Cameron batted beautifully, I was just hanging in there. If we have the support we had today, I have no doubt we can go all the way."

Ramnaresh Sarwan: "Not enough runs. Thought we got off to a good start, but couldn't maintain the momentum. Couldn't rotate the strike, we got enough boundaries but we need to run harder."

Ethan O'Reilly is the MoM He says: "The boys played well. I just took each ball as it came, and enjoyed the moment. Craig bowled fast today. He went up to 147, can go much faster if he wants."

So it's Goodbye Guyana. They have lost three in three, and have basically looked out of their depth. For Lions, it looks bright as they have given their net run-rate a shot in the arm by finishing this in 15.1 overs

Jacobs to Petersen, 1 run, but we won't get too much of Jacobs to watch as Petersen finishes off the game by dabbing this to short third man and rushing through for one

Scores are level. Jacobs to bowl. Looks like Gayle when bowling. Because of the dreadlocks
