8:33 pm That'll do it for tonight from me. I'm Peter Della Penna. Tomorrow is an off day in the tournament. So come back on Tuesday for the next CPL action when Jamaica Tallawahs pay a visit to Basseterre to take on St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots. Bye for now!

GAW captain Shoaib Malik: "It feels great. We're on the road for the next five games and looking forward to those games. Before I start praising [Rutherford and Pooran] I must praise Chandrapaul, the way he batted up front. When your opener scores runs, it allows your middle order to play with freedom and of course those two guys were exceptional. I was expecting 160 but the way they batted, Pooran and Rutherford, was exceptionally well."

Tridents captain Jason Holder: "Definitely not the start we wanted. Still a few positives. I thought we bowled well until the 15th over. We didn't close the innings as well as we would have liked. I just felt we were a little short of executing our plans. We lost two or three wickets in our Powerplay. I thought the wicket was good throughout."

Nicholas Pooran is named Man of the Match for his half-century. "It was just the right time. We have a really young team. Today I just took the responsibility to bat to the end. Today was my night."

8:16 pm Guyana moves to 3-0 joining TKR at the top of the table with a thumping win tonight set up by the fireworks from Pooran and Rutherford at the end of the Amazon Warriors innings. There's a lot to like about this Guyana side which has been in need of some batting firepower for several years now and the early signs are they may have found the right formula. Shepherd then backs it up with four wickets. Dominant display by the home side.

Shepherd to Lamichhane, OUT

yorker cleans up Lamichhane! Heat-seeking missile explodes the base of middle stump. Shepherd takes four to wrap up the match!

Sandeep Lamichhane b Shepherd 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0
Shepherd to Lalor, 1 run

slower ball lands full on off, flicked across the line to deep square leg.

TV commentator John Hastings says Lamichhane had a bad reaction to some medical cream and that was his reason for being off the field and being unable to bowl his full quota.

Shepherd to Lamichhane, 1 bye

full ball outside off, misses a wild heave but Pooran can't collect and it escapes for a bye.

Shepherd to Lamichhane, 1 wide

bouncer, Lamichhane flinches as he backs away.

Looks like Biswas will get his wish. Here comes Lamichhane at No. 11. For those just joining us, he only bowled one over and spent a significant amount of time off the field in the first innings. Slip brought in for the No. 11.

Shepherd to Primus, OUT

flat-batted to long-on! Short on off stump, slogs this flat to Hetmyer three yards in from the rope. Late lunge forward to claim this before it hits the turf at shoetop height.

Roshon Primus c Hetmyer b Shepherd 14 (13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 107.69

Green to Primus, 1 run

low full toss on leg stump, backs away to carve through cover.

Back around the stumps.

Green to Primus, 1 wide

well, not quite the last ball. Spears a full toss way outside off, well kept by Pooran to save more wides.

Comes over the stumps for the last ball.

Green to Lalor, 1 run

full on off, driven to long-on.

Green to Primus, 1 run

full on middle, driven firmly to long-off.

full and very very wide angled outside off, called a wide.

low full toss on off, Lalor charges and smacks this through long-off.

Shepherd to Lalor, 1 run

short outside off, runs this off the open face to third man.

Shepherd to Lalor, no run

Lalor gave him the charge and it seemed to throw Shepherd off because this was an awful delivery way outside off, out of reach of Lalor. Shepherd is livid with himself and pulls his shirt over his head as he walks back to his mark.

Lalor to face the hat-trick ball. Slip comes in, as does a short leg and a leg gully.

Shepherd to Reifer, OUT

bowled behind his legs! Goes too far across his stumps going to flick this leg stump length delivery, the ball skims leg stump after Reifer misses the ball and now Shepherd is on a hat-trick.

Raymon Reifer b Shepherd 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0
Shepherd to Nurse, OUT

frame that on the wall in the Pooran home! Nurse went for a paddle sweep to a length ball and got a reasonable amount of wood on it but Pooran anticipated this very early and started moving down leg projecting the contact, he continues moving left and intercepts this with a diving effort. He made it look so easy but 90% of the work was done reading what the batsman was doing and reacting before the shot was played. Brilliant.

Ashley Nurse c †Pooran b Shepherd 40 (25b 3x4 3x6) SR: 160
Shepherd to Nurse, 2 runs

attempts a wide yorker, but the ball is overpitched outside off, driven wide of Paul sweeping at cover again and he nearly creates another runout with a tight relay.

Shepherd to Nurse, no run

slower ball on fifth stump, premeditates a scoop over fine leg but misses.
