00.42am That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo. We'll see you tomorrow for more CPL. Don't forget to read Peter Della Penna's report of this groundbreaking victory in a little while. On behalf of everyone else here, this is Sreshth Shah signing off. Bye!

00.39am Kieron Pollard is the Man of the Match for his maiden T20 hundred.

Losing captain, Jason Holder: "We didn't bowl well enough. It was a tough wicket to bowl, and the wind factor made them target one end. Credit also to how Pollard played and Fletcher as well. We needed a good start with the bat too, which we didn't get, but we really fell away in the middle overs. It's only our second game, so we just need to gather some momentum. We have five home games later."

Winning captain, Kieron Pollard: "When's God's with you, nothing can go against you. Last night was disappointing, but today we responded well. Congratulations to the boys. The fans came out to support us, and we have another three games to play. We need them as our 12th man."

00.30am, Saturday Pollard gets down on his knees, Sammy punches the air - this is a new beginning for the St Lucia Stars. They win a game of cricket after 747 days, ending their 15-game losing streak as the dugout cheers as well. Even the Barbados Tridents seem happy for their opponents - great spirit of cricket. The Stars get together for a team huddle with Pollard and Sammy leading the boys out. Warner lets out a smile as well, blows a kiss to his missus in the stands. Smith and Amla congratulate Pollard too. Stick around for more reactions!

Darren Sammy: "Been a long time coming. The captain Pollard was disappointed yesterday but the way he stepped up today - the rest of the boys simply followed. We've come close in many games this season, we've been losing games in 2-3 overs. But to come here and get our first victory at home as the Stars, that's amazing, and the boys deserve to enjoy. St Lucia is the place to be, best place in the Caribbean."
