Full commentary

That's all we have on ball-by-ball. Thanks for your company. Goodnight.

"Coming back home, I said to the guys, these two points are very important, Top of the table clash. We used our momentum and confidence to entertain the fans," Dwayne Bravo says. "They bowled well in the last five overs. We usually get 75-80 runs in the last five overs but this time they very well and we have to accept that. We had a great start though Munro and we did well with the ball too, Ali Khan was excellent. Munro is our best batsmen, he's very consistent, he's hungry for success and its good to have international players who are committed to the team and committed to winning and that's what we want from overseas players."

"We know it would have been hard. This is their home ground. They got away in the first 14-15 overs, but we brought things back well," Rayad Emrit says. "Batting is a bit of a concern. Our senior guys haven't get the runs But I back then, Chadwick, Ronchi, they can do it. We didn't get partnerships tonight. Crucial partnerships. It'll be a big day when we clash with each other at our home. We just need to reflect. We know where we went wrong. My form isn't as good as I'd like. But I back myself"

Munro is Man of the Match. "I didn't know until now that I had a good strike-rate and average against Guyana. It gives confidence and I was lucky enough tonight. They bowled into my areas and I did well. Every time I play against a wristspinner, it's been tough, that's been my downfall over the last few games, so I've been careful about that, taking runs against other bowlers. Whether at the top of the order of No. 3, I just watch the ball and hit the ball."

In front of a festive Queens Park Oval crowd, Trinbago Knight Riders have sounded a warning shot to the rest of the teams in the qualifiers. Colin Munro's 90 off 56 was swiftly followed by a fierce spell from Ali Khan (3-22) and some very clever spin bowling from Sunil Narine, Khary Pierre and Fawad Ahmed (12-0-56-5) as they go to the top of the table.

Cyprain: "As a Tallawahs fan, I am celebrating a Guyana collapse as this gives us a higher possibility of finishing in top 2. Let's go TKR!!!!! "

Ali Khan to Imran Tahir, OUT
pops it to short cover. Ali Khan's pace frightens the No. 11 and he all but surrenders. Probably the only way to describe that defensive shot. Tahir falls. Game over
