So that's all from our side for tonight. See you soon.

10.06pm The Warriors players are congratulating each other. So that's six in six for them, and with that Guyana Amazon Warriors become the first team to qualify for the playoffs of CPL 2019. First their spinners dismissed Tridents for 138 and then a breezy unbeaten fifty Brandon King ensured they were 12 ahead of the par score when rain returned for good for the second time during Warriors chase.

10.00pm The drizzle has got heavier. The groundstaff are bringing the covers on once again and you'd think that's it. But we are still awaiting an official confirmation. The two batsmen are already back in the dressing room. The Trident players are still in the middle though. The par score is 69 for 2.

9.45pm The covers are off. The umpires are having a chat with two captains.

Allister: "nah, the rain gods are just bored because they know the warriors were going to win anyway, why waste a whole ten overs of time."

Naveen: "May be the rain gods also wants GAW to win 6 matches on trot"

Par score at this stage: 61 for 2. Warriors are well ahead. Meanwhile, rain has got heavier.

Duminy to Hetmyer, OUT, nicely taken by Duminy. Full on off stump, looks for the slog sweep and gets a top edge. That hangs high and to Duminy's right. He has to go backwards and it keeps curving away from him. Stretches a long way out to take it
