11.27pm That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo. Join us tomorrow for CPL 2018's final league game! Till then, on behalf of Ranjith P, this is Sreshth Shah signing off! See you.

11.25pm Rovman Powell is the Man of the Match for his all-round show. Says: "Definitely nice to bowl the last over. Team needed someone to stand up that time, so I did well to stop the opposition from having the momentum at the break. Dew played a little factor, but both teams were aware of it. Very enjoyable to play with Ross Taylor. He's a New Zealand legend. The Delport catch is one of the better catches of my career."

11.21pm So the Tallawahs finish their league stage with a win. They move to second, but Guyana have another game to try and pip them to the second spot. Either way, Tallawahs have done what they could've done... and now their hopes of a second spot depends on whether Guyana lose tomorrow or not. Today, though, was all about the 114-run stand for the third wicket between Taylor (41-ball 60) and Powell (34-ball 55). Powell, in fact, had an excellent day in the field. Don't forget his two top-order wickets with the ball, and the magnificent catch to dismiss Cameron Delport. Not the way Guyana captain Chris Green would've wanted to start his captaincy career, but that's how the ball rolls sometimes. Stick around for more reactions.

Alex97: "Seems the Warriors have lost their fighting spirit in the second half of this tournament "
