Scorecard summary
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots160/5(20 overs)
Jamaica Tallawahs164/3(19.1 overs)

Jamaica Tallawahs have trounced Patriots in style. What a clinical chase it has been. Chasing 160, Tallawahs never looked in discomfort, Henry Gayle led his troop to a 7 wicket victory. Early on, Martin Guptill and Marlon Samuels played a good knock and stitched a decent total, Santokie was the pick of the bowlers for JTs bagging 4 wickets. Later on it was Gayle and Lynn clobbered the bowlers all around. Patriots have themselves to blame, dropped a crucial catch and some reckless fielding. Chris Gayle has been adjudged man of the match for his match winning knock, that's it from here. Join us for the tomorrows encounter. This is Thilak and Chandan signing off, take care cheers.

Shad: "Gayle's last 7 innings read > 41, 92, 151*, 85*, 9, 90*, 72*. Truly astonishing numbers given the short, high risk nature of T20. This man should've replaced Arnold in the latest Terminator flick."
