Thank you for joining our coverage. Stay with us through the tournament. But for now, it's goodbye.

"With that start, I was thinking if we kept it to 180, it would be good. But our bowlers did really well, especially Odean, coming into the game," Kumar Sangakkara says, "Kesrick was outstanding. He's been up and down. But once he figures out when to attack and when to defend, he'll do well. Really crucial, winning away from home. We've one or two outstanding players, but other than that, we need to whole team to chip in"

"The guys batted well in the powerplay, we lost the game after the Munro wicket. It's a good pitch, but it's not easy to go in and bat. 148 was not a good score," says Dwayne Bravo. "But credit to the bowlers, they took the game to the last over. Team is settled, I'm not a fan of chopping and changing. No need to panic"

Jamaica Tallawahs' Kesrick Williams is the Man of the Match for his 3 for 26. "It's a pleasure to come and play for the Tallawahs. Really good to win this award. My plan was to get wickets, when it comes to people like Munro and McCullum, we need to get them out to keep them quiet. Last year, I had two-three slower balls. This year, I've got more. People catch up with you, so you need to keep inventing new stuff. I feel confident and I think I've been executing it well. My celebrations come naturally. it's just taking out my book and writing the names of the wickets I get. I'm trying to get 20 or more".

11.45 pm Brave as the TKR bowlers' fightback was, trying to defend 147, losing eight wickets for 38 runs in the back 10 overs is a mishap that is just too difficult to come back from. TKR were 109 for 2 at 9.5 overs. They were allout for 147 as they struggled to assess the change in conditions once the ball lost its shine. This pitch has been splendid to bat in the early overs, but after that, the slower-ball bowlers and the spinners could get a lot of grip off the surface.

Jamaica Tallawahs' bowlers did well to rein the target to a below par one - debutant Smith picking up 3 for 20 - and they needed to because the batsman did stutter, after Sangakkara had led them nearly to the finish line with 47. TKR keep their top place despite the loss, Jamaica are in at third after this win.

Cooper to Imad Wasim, 1 run

inside edge gets them the win, Imad blocks a back of a length delivery towards fine leg unintentionally and that act seals Jamaica's second win in three games, and the TKR's first loss of the season

TKR flags still flying, their fans still singing and dancing

Cooper to Foo, OUT

caught at long-on by Searles! Length ball, gets under it, gets under it too much and the ball goes straight up. The fielder comes in and takes the simplest catch

Bravo to Imad Wasim, no run

big dipper comes out a dot, even as Imad runs down the track to smash it. To his credit, he does smash it, straight down the ground, but Bravo puts in a good right boot. The ball pings over to McCullum at short cover

Bravo to Foo, no run

full and wide, and slow. Beats Foo for lack of pace

18.3
6
Bravo to Foo, SIX runs

dropped by Shadab at long-on! But this is not a straightforward grab. He's right on the edge of the boundary, and he's leaning back over it, hands reaching up, trying to get the ball. He gets both hands on it, but then it pops out and goes over for six too

18.2

Bravo to Foo, 2 runs

full and wide, Foo lashes it over point. But there's protection out there. Good shot. Does well to reach out when Bravo didn't want him to

18.1
4
Bravo to Foo, FOUR runs

streaky top edge over the keeper! It's that nasty slower ball, on middle and leg, Foo goes for the hoick, gets enough to push his team ahead. Under run-a-ball now

Fourteen off 12 for Jamaica. Who's got the ball?It's Dee-Jay Bravo. Third man's up. Fine leg's back. Long-on's back. Square leg is back. Who's going to get that timely boundary away?

Cooper to Foo, 1 run

walks down the pitch and then heaves a back of a length delivery out to long-on

This is T20 at its scrap-tastic. Jamaica need 15 off 13 in a chase of 148.

clips a shortish delivery off his legs to deep square leg

17.4
Cooper to Imad Wasim, no run

beaten, on a full toss, a full toss that gives him room to free the arms. That's a bit poor from Imad

Jamaica need 16 off 15, TKR right back in it. Here comes Imad Wasim

17.3
W
Cooper to Shakib, OUT

he's caught and bowled! Tries to force the pace but this is the older ball, on a pitch that is gripping, so hitting through the line is a no-no. Shakib goes for it, he doesn't have the room to do so properly, and only ends up popping the ball back to Cooper.

walks at the bowler, Cooper then goes for the short ball, Foo swats it down the ground. Cooper gets the fingertips to it and the ball wanders past the stumps again! Shakib's living the life

Bravo to Foo, 1 run

dropped, and the ball misses the stumps at the non'strikers' with the non-striker well out of his crease. It all happens when Bravo bowls his slower ball. This time the flick does back down the pitch, Bravo tries to take it one-handed, he can't, then the ball bristles past the stumps with Shakib well out of his crease, backing up

16.4

Bravo to Foo, 1 run

massive dip on the slower ball - and it allows time for Foo to think about a pull, then realise the danger of the shot, then block, open the face and pinch a single to point

16.4
1w
Bravo to Foo, 1 wide

full, slow, and too wide outside off. Foo doesn't play, Jamaica get further away

Bravo to Shakib, 1 wide

second wide of the over, this one at top pace. Shakib doesn't need to do anything
