Time for the presentation:

Rayad Emrit: Overwhelmed to win a game finally, we came close to winning a game several times. Today was a totally different team from our previous matches. We had a chat before the match today. We knew if Franklin and Elton stayed till the end we would chase it. Out fielding let us down in ever single game.

James Franklin is the Man of the Match: Pretty tough couple of weeks for the team, not getting the right results so nice to get across the line tonight. I obviously played a lot with the Northern Districts guys so there is familiarity.

And that's all we have from this game, and the league stage. Join us for the two semi-finals on Thursday after a day's gap. Till then it's goodbye and good luck from Vishal Dikshit. Ciao!

12.32am So Barbados Tridents finally register a win before leaving the country. Even though the target of 138 was not very steep, Scott Styris and Ish Sodhi made sure the match went to the last over. Tridents lost three wickets before reaching 50 but Jonathan Carter and James Franklin made sure only one more wicket fell before Franklin hit 11 in the last over.

Daniel Fynn: We were probably 15-20 light, we bowled reasonably well. It's very disappointing because we had high hopes after a strong start in the tournament.

Jonathan Carter: We are elated, we stuck as a group. We are one big family so we'll celebrate tonight. I wanted to finish the game and I should have carried on. I spoke to Mr Haynes a lot, and worked on my game and grabbed the opportunity with both hands here.

Tom: "Franklin is my man of the match"
