Full commentary

9.00pm The sub-par Stars have been put away with so much ease again. A crucial win for the Amazon Warriors, keeps them in the hunt for the playoffs. Chasing 101, the Amazon Warriors were made to work, but it was never really going to be match-changing. Jason Mohammed and contributions from Gajanand and Sohail Tanvir have helped the Amazon Warriors climb to six points and over the Barbados Tridents. The Stars, on the other hand, were not very good for the eighth game on the bounce. One bad day in T20s is acceptable, how about eight in a row?

Sohail Tanvir is the Man of the Match: "We didn't start well. The game against Jamaica, we though we had them, but we slipped. As a group, we try to be together. We have the momentum and need to keep building it. I've spoken to management saying I'm being wasted down, I played for Zouks in 2014 and they used me at 4, against the spinners. My role today was to go out and smack, but had to see after early wickets. We weren't winning crucial moments."

Martin Guptill: "0 from 2 at the start. Always great when we come back here. We have a few days off, then off to Barbados, hopefully we can keep that winning way going."

Shane Watson: "It's challenging. I do like a challenge, it gets me going. But Guyana played well tonight. Hopefully a better performance than what we did tonight. Tonight, we were extremely disappointing."
