short and wide, and Searles cuts it in front of square for a boundary! The Trinbago boys come out to celebrate as Thomas slumps on the floor.
9.40pm That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo. An excellent game of cricket, but a pity that there can be only one winner. This will be a game to remember. On behalf of our scorer and correspondent, this is Sreshth Shah saying goodbye for now. Adios!
Man of the Match: Kharry Pierre for his bowling effort of 2 for 19. "Want to thank God for this," says Pierre. "Just wanted to back myself and tried to use my variations."
9.36pm Revenge for Trinbago Knight Riders after they lost the reverse fixture last week. Oshane Thomas bowled five excellent balls, but a wide and then a short ball has meant that Jamaica Tallawahs end up on the losing side. Darren Bravo and Colin Munro hit important fifties, but it was the late boost from captain DJ that has helped Trinbago win tonight's fixture. Some excellent spells with the ball too, mind you. Imad Wasim and Kharry Pierre were excellent today, and so were Glenn Phillips and David Miller in the first innings, but there can only be one winner, and today it was Trinbago Knight Riders. Back to the drawing board for Russell and co. They've lost two games in a row.
Three to win. Two for a super over.
"Almost everyone in the ground is on their feet in anticipation of the final ball. There may only be about 1500 or so fans in here, but the noise through the end of the chase has well exceeded that."
full on off, and Searles drills a drive to Russell at wide long off. Has a shy at the stumps at the keeper's end, but Searles is safe. One ball to go
Five needed off two. Nervous energy all around. The bowler pulls out of a run up as well.
length ball outside off, but this is just too wide! Thomas isn't happy, but it's a fair call. Phillips runs across to the bowler to try and keep him calm
Six needed off two.
full and wide outside off, and the batsman can't get bat to ball! Searles had a mighty swing there but it goes down as another dot ball
full and wide outside off, and Bravo tries to go for the money shot. Lifted over point, but the fielder in the deep gets under it! Oh my my
From Peter Della Penna: "Crowd is chanting "BRAVO! BRAVO!" right now with 6 off 4 to win"
good length outside off, and Searles tries to paddle this over fine leg. But the ball hits his chest. Nonetheless, they take the risk and scamper across for a single
yorker just outside off, and Searles has no clue where that went. Sneaks under his bat and into the keeper's gloves. Seven off five...
Thomas to bowl the final over. Trinbago need seven. What a game this has been.
full toss on middle stump, and Bravo creams this straight drive over the non-striker's head! Rovman Powell is in a lot of pain near the boundary. He's hurt trying to field this. Hopefully it's nothing serious
slower ball, on a length.Searles misses the pull and the ball bounces into the keeper's gloves. They scamper across for a single anyway
Searles in now.
captain marvellous! Full on leg stump and Munro shuffles across. He misses the whip off his hips and the ball crashes into the stumps. Twist in the tale?
full and wide outside off, but the umpire says it's a legal delivery
More from PDP: "USA's Steven Taylor the next culprit on the boundary. Andre Russell is getting angrier. Taylor had to put in a dive there. Meek effort to backtrack at the last moment to let the ball fall in front of him and allow Bravo to stay in."
drops the length a bit this time, forcing Bravo to lift this over the infield with the bat's toe end. Lands just short of Steven Taylor at deep point and Russell isn't happy! Why aren't these fielders going for their catches?
full on middle, but Bravo opens his stance, clears his front leg, and then tonks a maximum over long on! Off the bat's sweet spot
Only 21 needed off the final two overs. Bravo's smashed 23 in seven deliveries.
From Peter Della Penna: "That was David Miller's chance all the way. Not sure why Ross Taylor kept pursuing the ball running out from cover inside the circle but it put off Miller who wanted no part of a collision. Rovman Powell at long-off belly-flopped onto the ground and slammed his hands on the turf in immense frustration at that missed chance off Munro. The Lauderhill House of Horrors continues for the Tallawahs."
full just outside off, and Munro has slapped this over fielder at point. Miller and another fielder converge under it, but the ball lands between both of them!
low full toss on middle, and it comes off the bat's toe end. The straight drive goes to Rovman at long on
full, but going down the leg side
From Peter Della Penna: "USA's premier left-arm spinner Nosthush Kenjige was in position in front of the sightscreen to clutch onto that straight six by DJ Bravo, but spilled it badly. Coach Pubudu Dassanayake will be disappointed. Two USA players have been selected to join each franchise in Florida this week for squad integration and mentoring. Kenjige and batsman Fahad Babar were the two who have joined TKR for the weekend."
full on off, but Bravo backs away, makes some room, and wallops another six over the long-off boundary. Clean as a whistle!
Trinbago need 31 off 15. Santokie around the wicket
low full toss on middle stump, but Bravo has absolutely smashed this delivery. Loads up, swings through and then crunches a straight drive over the non-striker's head. Russell's shoulders droop
waist-high full toss on off, and Bravo comes dancing down the wicket. Swings at this ball, and then thumps this shot over the cow-corner boundary! Clearly going for the yorker, but absolutely missing his length
full on off, and Bravo opens his bat's face and lifts a drive over cover. Lewis manning the region at deep extra cover
Trinbago need 45 off 18 balls.
