Scorer: Ranjith

That's it from all of us here. Have a good night all of you and join us for tomorrow's game

Bravo: Yeah 160 was a good total, but with the start we got, we were 15-20 runs short. Lynn played a very good innings. You have to respect someone when he plays well. Munro played well, he was given the freedom to play his natural game. It's good to see overseas players performing well. Time for local players to start performing

Guptill: We got a little bit of momentum going into our home games. It was tough [bowling to Munro] but our bowlers bowled well. Lynn played very well.

Colin Munro is the Man of the match:Disappointing to be losing side. Another 15 runs would've been good. I thought I was in trouble at the half time, but there is some trouble in the groins.

It was thought that spinners would turn the match Trinbago Knight Riders way, but it was not to be. Smith, Guptill and Lynn, majorly, made sure that the spinners never got the advantage from the pitch. Lynn had eight sixes in the innings. His quick hands and lofted shots on the leg side were a delight to watch.

Knight Riders have themselves to blame though. They went slow in the last 8.1 overs and got 62 runs only in those overs. Nothing encapsulated it better than the missed free hit in the final over and they lose their second game.

Beaton to Mohammed, SIX runs, that's the match! Jason Mohammed slams it over sweeper cover for a six to win the game for Guyana Amazon Warriors

DJ Bravo to Bramble, 2 runs, yorker on the leg stump. He flicks it to deep midwicket for a couple
DJ Bravo to Mohammed, 1 run, turns it to square leg for a single
DJ Bravo to Bramble, 1 run, comes forward and steers it to short third man for a single
DJ Bravo to Barnwell, OUT, yorker and quicker, in line with the off stump. He is struck on the left foot. Bravo doesn't even bother to appeal, he just runs on and on. Is there a final twist in this game?
