9:45 pm If you're just joining us, here's Peter Della Penna's match report for you to enjoy. And, that's all from us today. See you for the next one. On behalf of Sreshth and Thilak - goodbye!

Guptill: Nice to get the first one in the bag. It's a pretty good feeling. We're heading home now to familiar conditions so we could get some more wins under the belt.

Sammy:I think we bowled much better today. The first 10 overs of the match we controlled the game with Johnson and Watto. We still lost wickets in clusters. Getting close to the win. Did well with the ball. We're just not getting the results. I know we're practicing well. Sometimes you just have to relax and take your mind off.

Man of the Match, Rashid Khan: First of all, thanks to the almighty Allah for my performance. The wickets are very good for the spinners here. I played here against West Indies and I'm used to these wickets. So I just tried to bowl in the good areas. The win was needed, it's tough to come back if you lose three matches.

9:30 pm Fifth straight loss for the home team.That could be the end of their prospects. They don't look like a team that can push the mathematical possibilities either. Threw away a strong situation while batting, had a good 15 minute phase towards the end of this innings, but they just didn't show any sort of consistency. A nice mature innings from Mohammed and an impressive cameo from Singh has taken the Warriors to victory.

Sammy to Primus, 2 runs
that's the win. Extra cover moved to the leg side and third man was in, so this ball was going to be on the leg side. He knew this. Stayed put. Got the low full toss and flicked it to deep square's left. He did a good job to cover that with a tumble and put in a throw, but there was enough time for the second

Same field...oh hang on. Extra cover moves to midwicket.

Sammy to Primus, FOUR runs
good shot. Forget the poking. Takes him on this time. Full at leg stump, clipped away between deep midwicket and deep square
Sammy to Primus, no run
dot ball! Yorker at off stump, and he looks to squeeze this to bring Singh on strike. Ends up tapping it back at the bowler
Sammy to Singh, 1 run
back of a length outside off, forces him to slap this to deep point. Good bowling

Stays around the wicket to Singh.

Sammy to Primus, 1 run
full at leg stump, attempted slog, poor connection. Straight to deep midwicket

Primus on strike. Darren Sammy is going to bowl. Around the wicket. Deep square, deep midwicket, long-on, sweeper, long-off. Third man is in.

McClenaghan to Mohammed, OUT
caught at mid-off! Mitch has produced a dream 19th over. Slower ball, full toss outside off. Mohammed wants to slap this over mid-off but he gets it off the toe. Sammy runs to his right and holds on. Three runs and a wicket. It looks like they crossed over too, the new man will be on strike
JN Mohammed c Sammy b McClenaghan 38 (31b 3x4 1x6) SR: 122.58
McClenaghan to Singh, 1 run
legutter, good length at off stump. Steps out and slices to deep point
McClenaghan to Singh, no run
bouncer over off stump. Looks to play the upper cut and can't connect. He thinks that's a wide...replays suggest he has a case
McClenaghan to Mohammed, 1 run
low full toss outside off, driven to sweeper cover
McClenaghan to Singh, 1 run
legcutter, around the wicket. Back of a length at the hips from around the wicket, tickled to fine leg
McClenaghan to Singh, no run
legcutter, back of a length outside off. Looks to cut this, beaten

Jerome Taylor4-0-28-1
Kyle Mayers4-0-22-1
Taylor to Singh, 1 run
full outside off, front leg out of the way, driven straight to deep extra cover
Taylor to Singh, FOUR runs
powerful. Oh this is top T20 batting from Singh. Taylor has a field set for the angled full one across the left-hander. But he bowls a short one at middle stump. Singh is on his front foot, but he takes the opportunity. Slaps it to the midwicket boundary, one bounce
Taylor to Mohammed, 1 run
short and in the corridor. Backs away and under-cuts it to sweeper. Slips at the non-strikers end
Taylor to Singh, 1 run
walks across after anticipating the angle, slogs across the line and gets it wide of long-on
Taylor to Singh, FOUR runs
superb. Taylor misses length this time. Wants to angle the yorker across the left-hander again, but this is a nice half-volley. Gets the front leg away and slices it over extra cover
Taylor to Singh, no run
nails the yorker, wide outside off. Singh wasn't close to hitting that

21 required now off the last three overs.

Mayers to Mohammed, 2 runs
short and wide, angling away. Makes room and scythes this past extra cover. Sweeper runs to his right and returns a throw. Batsman is a long way in but Akmal appeals loudly. Sent upstairs, not out
Mayers to Singh, 1 run
another legspinner, this one short and down leg. Swivels and paddles it straight to fine leg
Mayers to Singh, no run
a legspinner from Mayers. Singh picks it. Sees it at off, good length. Takes the percentage option and goes after it, to try and smash it over the midwicket boundary. But it's a fast bowler's legspinner - so it doesn't turn. Beaten
Mayers to Singh, SIX runs
lifts a flick over long leg. Poor ball. Overpitched on leg stump. Once more, the attempt is to use the angle. Lifts it off his toes
Mayers to Singh, no run
bouncer angled at his front shoulder. He gets inside the line to try and use the angle on the hook shot. Beaten
Mayers to Mohammed, 1 run
full and wide, skewed in the air, lands short of wide third man

Mayers, around
