2.30 pm The party's only starting today in Lauderhill, by the way. We have another mouthwatering encounter starting in 30 minutes. Join us there as we set up the scene for the match between Tridents and Tallawahs. We hope you enjoyed ESPNcricinfo's coverage of the second match of CPL 2017. And if you're joining us late, here's Peter Della Penna's match report. From Nikhil and Sreshth, it's goodbye.

2.27 pm Winning captain Chris Gayle: "happy to get over the line. We bowled well to restrict them to 123, fantastic job from the bowlers. Would've preferred doing better with the bat, but this is T20 cricket. Happy with the win. What's more important was getting the nerves out the way."

Losing captain Martin Guptill: "Not sure what went wrong, the wicket played a little differently, and we didn't adjust to it. We were in with a chance after Patriots were 57 for 5 and I did some errors as captain while we were bowling. "

2.22 pm Hasan Ali, on his CPL debut, is the Man of the Match. He says: "The pitch was a bit slow, so I was looking for dots, dots, dots. I try to bowl like Waqar Younis, like his aggression and his swing. Trying to copy the legend."

2.17 pm After ten overs of the second innings, it really did look like Guyana Amazon Warriors were on top courtesy a tight spell from Emrit. But, given how small a total Guyana were defending, all it took was a few lusty blows from Brathwaite to change the game's complexion once again. His useful 31, that came off 19 balls, eventually was the difference between the two sides today. Gayle starts off his Patriots captaincy on a very positive note. Hang around for comments from the two captains.
