Scorer: Ranjith P | Commentator: Shashank Kishore

Thank you for your time. Hope you enjoyed the coverage. Until next time, this is Shashank Kishore signing off on behalf of P Ranjith and Peter Della Penna. Over to Vizag now for India v South Africa, day 2.

10.25pm Back-to-back losses for TKR, who have some work to do even if they may have qualified. Tridents started explosively, then slipped into a pit that they struggled to come out of on the face of some good bowling on a slow wicket. Just as the pressure was starting to build, they once again emerged courtesy the cool and calm JP Duminy, who walloped a crucial boundary off the last ball of the penultimate over to swing fortunes in their favour. TKR may have been 20 short after aiming a total tad too high on this surface.

Join us soon for the match presentations

Harry Gurney is the Man of the Match for his 2 for 14 off four overs. "It was a big game for us, the pressure will be on TKR for their next game now. i'm looking forward to see how they play against Amazon Warriors. For me the most important thing is keeping calm, T20 cricket can be a real pressure cooker. So need to maintain the composure in this format."

Kieron Pollard, TKR captain: There's going to be a lot of discussion about our decision at the toss, we didn't put enough runs on the board. I don't think it was a bad decision, it was just that we didn't bat well. Even in their chase, while they didn't lose wickets, they never looked settled. We've struggled with injuries right through, so we've not been able to find balance in the bowling. Tomorrow's another day, we'll travel and prepare for a game in Guyana on Friday. Lot of people will be looking forward to that.

Jason Holder, Tridents captain: I would've batted too. Our bowlers were outstanding. To limit them to 134 was a superb effort. In the chase, maybe we could've killed the game a lot earlier, but happy with the points that we'll take. The most important thing was to utilise the Powerplay. We got off to a decent start, good to see Hales coming back to form. Played some good shots, Johnson Charles was outstanding. Gurns has been outstanding, don't think he has gone for more than 30, he's been able to give be consistency at the end of the innings. Shakib a quality batter and a proven wicket-taker, they've fit in nicely.
