Luke Ronchi is Player of the Match. "Wicket got better as the game went on, in the first innings it was jumping, but it changed with a bit of dew around. I just have a clear mind, and everything works out better. I've been working on that, will keep working on that." And with those fireworks from Ronchi to boot, it's time for me to say goodbye. Hope to see you tomorrow. Cheers.

How easy has Ronchi made this look? He took the surface completely out of the equation. This wasn't all that easy a surface to simply come out and bash the ball like he did, but in doing so, he's displayed his quality and improved batsmanship in the format. IPL talent scouts, are you watching? Guyana Amazon Warriors go top.

Tridents were a win away from lifting themselves off the bottom, but have been shellacked. They may yet move out of the bottom spot, with two games in hand as compared to Stars, but not sure that could help their qualification chances greatly. Their net run rate has taken a massive dent.

helped over the keeper's head. Just a feather, even a leap can't get him the catch. Game set and match, the Tridents have slipped to yet another loss. Luke Ronchi, take a bow. What a knock.

what audacity, what confidence. That's into the media center. Too full, he takes a step back into the crease and then presses forward with the swing to clear the ropes. Massive hit

Wahab Riaz to Ronchi, 2 runs

just short of the man running in from deep midwicket, Dwayne Smith was late in running in from the ropes, perhaps because he didn't pick the shot early.

Wahab Riaz to Hetmyer, OUT

has Smith taken it at long-on? This is magnificent. Clobbered to the boundary where Smith takes it literally a centimeter inside the skirting, but knows for sure that he's going over. Just as he is about to, he tosses the ball in the air, goes out, regathers himself, comes back in and because the ball has been tossed high, there is enough time for him to come back in and complete the grab. The best part of the catch was Smith had to go sideways in taking that because the ball swirled a bit, this threw him off balance, so that he has managed to pull this off shows great flexibility and core strength. Simply magnificent.
