Thanks for joining us all today. Please do join us back for the game tomorrow. Till then, good night from all of us

Pollard : It was [difficult]. We bowled up right his end today (Walton's). A lot of introspection needs to take place. Yes, we have lost a few players but we don't want to make excuses. Guys have to take chances. It's not the time to make excuses.

Gayle: I have to [smile]. I have to thank the crowd for the support, fantastic. The wins take the pressure off but we still have two more games to play. We are going to miss Steyn. Rampaul got me out and I got him out. It's one-all

Walton is the Man of the match: I am a bit disappointed at not getting the century, but the knock came in a win. The atmosphere here is brilliant.

Jamaica Tallawahs win the game by 36 runs and for a moment it seemed as if Pooran will give them a scare, but his run out snuffed out the fight out of Barbados Tridents.

Jamaica make it four out of four at home venue and continue with their position at the top of the table. Towards the latter half of the tournament, Jamaica seem like a well oiled machine and it would take some doing to defeat them. Part of that comes from their famed batting line-up.

They did not even have to bowl their left arm spinners today. It was all pace bowlers today, but for Gayle's over at the end. Barbados, on the other hand, have a challenge of dealing with life after AB de Villiers' departure. They need a batsman to provide the impetus. Probably sending Pooran up the order might just do that

fuller ball outside the off stump. Rampaul slogs it to deep midwicket where Shakib takes the catch. Gayle celebrates Rampaul's wicket with Rampaul. Now that takes some doing!

Williams to Nurse, OUT
fuller ball outside the off stump. He looks to slog this away to the leg side and gets an outside edge back to the kepeer. Surprisingly, Sanga doesn't appeal! If only his appeals for genuine catches were as vociferous as the ones he belts out when the balls bowled are wide down the leg side!
