Full commentary

12.00am The Guyana Amazon Warriors have picked up steam and momentum just when it has mattered. Peaking in T20 tournaments is quite a highly-discussed topic; the Amazon Warriors have peaked at the right time. Chasing 169, Chadwick Walton and then Luke Ronchi put on a stand of belligerence to boot the defending champions out of the tournament. The Tallawahs, apart from Mahmudullah, did not have answers, nor did they ask the right questions. They have plenty they can take out of this tournament, but they did have a chance to finish in the top two, so some rued opportunities for them. The Amazon Warriors progress to the second qualifier, another knockout, against the Trinbago Knight Riders in under 24 hours. We'll be back then, so see you. Take care.

Rayad Emrit: "We knew there was going to be a lot of dew, the toss was important. Keeping them to 170 was decent. We haven't seen the best of Rashid Khan yet. Tomorrow is going to be our toughest game, our ice baths are ready, for 12.30 in the morning. We are professionals.

Kumar Sangakkara: "We were 30-40 runs short, didn't help that the ball was changed just before that over from Rashid Khan, those three wickets put us on the back foot. We have gone soft in the Powerplay, which is why we played the big guy Lewis. Everytime we play naive, silly cricket, we lose games. We had a specific plan, our bowling has been inconsistent. I told all batsmen coming in, it's going to be the googly (the hat-trick).

Luke Ronchi, the Man of the Match: "It got dewy, quite hard to hold onto the ball, skidded onto the bat. Trying to continue with the momentum as much as I can really. My role is to be positive, and as long as I can. Having 14-15 games (the Natwest T20 Blast) there made a big difference.

Sami to Fudadin, 1 run

short, on the ribs, gloved down to fine leg awkwardly for one

Sami to Fudadin, no run

good length outside off, dabbed to point

Sami to Fudadin, FOUR runs

Sami to Primus, 1 run

fullish delivery outside off, confidently pushed out to the sweeper cover


Sami to Ronchi, OUT

Ronchi's belligerence ends. And it needed quite a terrific delivery to end it. Full on leg, quick, hurries Ronchi for pace, who is late on his flick, struck in front and the umpire accepts Sami's plea. Ronchi has taken this game away from the Tallawahs

Williams to Fudadin, 1 run

shortish outside off, angled away, patted past backward point for a run to third man

Williams to Fudadin, FOUR runs

that's four more, and that should be the game. A slower ball on middle and leg, Fudadin chooses a good option, hits that right back, past Kesrick. Didn't overhit that

Williams to Ronchi, 1 run

the slower ball outside off, a thick outside edge down to third man. Tried to clear cover

Williams to Fudadin, 1 run

much much better. Full outside off, guided down to third man

Williams to Fudadin, SIX runs

that will help Fudadin. Take down the hesitant bowler. A slower ball on off, Fudadin stays low and clobbers a swat way over midwicket

Williams to Ronchi, 1 leg bye

a slower delivery from slightly wide of the crease, Ronchi misses a flick, struck on the pad. A big appeal, but sliding down. Ronchi has lost his momentum too

Sami to Ronchi, 1 run

a low full toss outside off, driven to cover, who fumbles and allows the single. Not very good from that fielder, allows Ronchi back on strike

Sami to Fudadin, 1 run

after four dots, Fudadin tries to smash the ball out of the ground. Short down leg, mis-timed to midwicket for a tight run.

Sami to Fudadin, no run

pressure, pressure. Shortish length outside off, dabbed to point
