11.35pm What a dominant chase from Guyana. Here's the Man of the Match Shimron Hetmyer: I'm working hard at the nets and working on my batting. It's a good pitch to bat on, some balls stuck. It's two in two and it's a good feeling in the camp. We're just taking it one game at a time.

Brathwaite, Patriots captain: It wasn't to be tonight, credit to Hetmyer. The conditions were dewy and it was very tough. We tried as best as we could, we will have to play 5 games in 10 days and hopefully we can turn it around at home.

Malik, Guyana captain: It was packed today and I want to thank the crowd. Whatever you are chasing, if you have good start, it's easier for the middle order. When an opener crosses 30, it's their responsibility to finish the game. When I took that blow, I thought I'm out of the tournament. I had a scan and it came clear. Thanks to Allah. If you win most of the home games, you can go deep in the tournament. I didn't feel like it was not in Pakistan, the crowd was fantastic. Keep supporting us guys.

That's all we have for you from this match. Thanks for reading. Until next time, this is Deivarayan Muthu signing off on the behalf of Varun Shetty and Vairavan

Abhijato: "@Kaleem - agreed that Hetmeyer is a more dynamic and reliable player. But I was talking about their Entertainment Quotient when they do get going. As Pant has shown in all three formats of the game, when it all clicks he can pull off feats the best in the business cannot. Cases in point - his exploits in IPL, his daddy hundred in Australia, and his T20I cameos in NZ!"
