Full commentary

12:54 am That's all from our coverage today. Thanks for joining us.

Darren Sammy: Would have been nice to get in a full game and see how deep we could have taken it. I think we could have executed a little bit better. We have to play an all-round game. Last year it was a similar situation (1 win out of 5 games) and we won 5 out of the remaining 6. We're not out of it yet. We have to make some changes.

Man of the match, Kieron Pollard: I'm happy with the performance. I've been trying to come in and lead from the front. We went and got 195 and it was defendable on this track. I'm not frustrated with the rain stop, Sammy was getting in. (laughs)

12:33 am The rain has gotten too heavy. The ground staff has got the signal. The captains have embraced. The match has been called off. The Barbados Tridents win by 21 runs (DLS method).

12:27 am Aaaand it's back on. They're all off now. Par score: 150

12:25 am The drizzle seems to have stopped.

12:23 am Uh-oh. Sammy is unhappy. It's because the drizzle is back and the umpires have deemed it's heavy enough to bring on the covers.
