has he tickled this to the keeper? The umpire has a long, hard look. Thinks, overthinks and raises the finger long after Gabriel decided his throat was hurting and he needed to stop appealing. Anyway, that brings an end to a no-contest that was extremely intense for the first half. After David Warner's dismissal, it all went downhill. Trinbago Knight Riders have begun with a resounding win.

11.35pm This is only the third time in CPL history that a side has lost by over a 100 runs. St Lucia Stars haven't won a game since the 2016 edition, their barren patch now stretching to 12 matches. They were very poor in the field, dropping as many as five catches, and then completely insipid with the bat. The spark, the inspiration - everything was missing. They'll need something special to bounce back from this.
The heroes of the game today? Colin Munro who set the game up with a blazing fifty and Denesh Ramdin who finished it off in style. Then with the ball, Fawad Ahmed broke the back of the chase with some fizzing googlies and flippers. Once the damage was inflicted, Dwayne Bravo had some fun and nipped out wickets with his dipping slower deliveries.
Colin Munro is the Player of the Match for his 48-ball 68. "The last thing my daughter told me was win a trophy. This [bottle of 21-year old rum] is probably a better gift," he laughs. "Been given the license to go out and play. Comes off sometimes, doesn't at other times. Ramdin coming out the way and play like he did always helps. This is pretty close to a complete performance."

what does he do next ball after refusing a single? Wallop this full toss straight to Searles at long-off. Oh, gosh. Pollard's last hope was staying right till the end to score as many and reduce the margin of defeat, not happening tonight.
