12:12 am Thanks for joining us today. We'll be back for the next one. Have a good night.

Gayle says he was looking to defend 140 and everything they got above that was a bonus. The momentum did it for Trinbago, he says. Bravo's sign-off is an ode - to the fans, the bowlers and the ones who stepped up.

The captains' interview has spontaneously turned into a DJ Bravo performance of 'Champions' with Danny Morrison and Chris Gayle all joining in.

Man of the Match, Denesh Ramdin: Was important to be calm. Myself and Dwayne had a plan but it didn't come off. In the last couple of games, I didn't contribute much. The crowd has been amazing and I hope they continue to support for us. First time I have done it for them and I'm delighted.

11:51 pm What an innings from Denesh Ramdin. Huffed and puffed through the middle overs when the spinners came on. The screws were on so tight, the Knight Riders had no business being anywhere close to victory. But Ramdin has endured, and he found company in Searles to lift them into the playoffs. The Patriots have let this one slip. Dropped some catches, and brought their frontline spinners on too late. Haphazard tactics, with the best bowlers not bowling through - Nabi and Badree took four wickets between them in five overs, including one maiden from the Afghan. Neither of them bowled out their full quota. And it all came undone in the last 20 balls or so, with length balls and a full tosses, an two short ones that went for six.

he's done it! One bounce, into the straight boundary. A full toss at middle stump, lifted over the umpire and he's wheeling off in celebration before that's even reached the boundary

Brathwaite to Ramdin, SIX runs

fifty for Ramdin! A match-winning knock, surely? Woeful bowling. Full toss on leg stump. Get away from me, he says to the front foot, and drills this over the midwicket boundary

Fewer than 10 to get

Brathwaite to JPR Scantlebury-Searles, 1 wide

looks for the yorker at leg stump and misses his mark, this is way down the leg side

Straight away, long-off moves straight, to almost the exact place where the last ball went

Brathwaite to JPR Scantlebury-Searles, FOUR runs

lovely shot! Overpitched at off stump. Gets the front leg out of the way and hammers it flat over the bowler, one bounce and four

18.2
Brathwaite to JPR Scantlebury-Searles, no run

legcutter, good length outside off. Looks to club this through midwicket, but he's beaten

Hasan Ali to Ramdin, SIX runs

follows his brillaiance with an awful ball. Short and wide outside off, Ramdin merely has to get under this. Does so, lifts it over wide third man and take a look at the equation now - 23 off 13.

Hasan Ali to Bravo, OUT

Hasan Ali, you star! They haven't held onto catches today, and the umpiring decisions haven't all gone his way either. But Ali is making up for all of that single-handedly in the field. After that stunning catch earlier, he now swivels and takes down the stumps at the non-strikers end to remove Bravo. A yorker at off stump, tapped towards the covers and Ali hares across

the perfect yorker, at leg stump. Squeezed to midwicket...and the bowler gets across, puts in a slide, keeps it to one
