Cameron Delport is Player of the Match: Once they said they'll go upstairs (Russell no-ball), I thought it could be close but we eventually got Russell out. Pace off the ball was the key against their batsmen. Hopefully we can finish in the top two.

Shakib: Very disappointing, thought we did well with the ball, believed we could chase it down. We kept on losing wickets, that's why we couldn't finish.

5.15pm The Vikings were poor in the field for most part but got their act together towards the end, starting with the catch of Andre Russell, who had been reprieved off a no-ball by Cameron Delport, and curiously, it was him who made amends by taking the catch at deep midwicket. Still, while Shakib was in the middle, the Dynamites were in with a chance and the Vikings' fielders did their bit to keep him at the crease before he was deceived by a Shanaka slower ball and caught at long-on for 53, as the chase fizzled away thereafter. Abu Jayed was the pick of the bowlers, with two wickets early on and an excellent final over in which he picked up his third. Five wickets within the first ten overs meant that Dynamites were constantly playing catch-up and eventually fell well short as the Vikings consolidated their position on the points table

Abu Jayed to Birch, 1 run, full outside off, pushed to long-off and eventually, that's a fairly convincing win by 11 runs. That's their second over Dynamites in two matches this season
