Sunil Narine, Man of the Match: I was supposed to open, but Webster got the opportunity. He's young and he backed himself. It's nice to get the license. If it comes off, I'm happy. Not much dew tonight and it was a good surface to bowl on today.

Gayle, Jamaica captain: Narine's innings was key and we put down a few chances. I thought they would score 220-240, we pulled it back in the end. It's our first game, yes. Nothing to panic about. The wicket got a bit slower, so it was difficult to get going. Russell gave us a lifeline, but like I said nothing to panic.

Pollard, TKR captain: It was too close for comfort. I thought Narine changed the momentum immediately and in the first six overs we stamped our authority. Each and every game we need to come up with plans and the bowlers did well against a strong batting line-up who have strong guys who can clear the boundary. The way young Webster batted - he went deep and that's what you want in T20s. Hopefully, we can make it 3 in 3 at home

That's all we have for you from this game. This is Deivarayan Muthu signing off on the behalf of Hemant Brar and Vairavan. Goodbye and good night. Looking forward to your warm company tomorrow as well.

Neesham to Worker, SIX runs

Neesham misses his length, overpitched on off stump, Worker gets under it and sends his countryman over the midwicket boundary. Nevertheless, TKR make it two wins in two games

Neesham to Jacobs, 1 run

105ks legcutter outside off, stabbed out in front of square on the off side

Neesham to Springer, OUT

Neesham strikes again. This is the change up, floated in at middle, the batsman slogs to the leg side and winds up dragging it back onto the stumps. Neesham has the home crowd jiving and grooving to his tunes

another full-toss outside off, this is spliced over extra-cover

Neesham to Russell, OUT

#UnleashtheNeesh. Full-toss outside off, Russell clears his front leg and mis-hits it straight down the throat of Searles at long-off. Neesham is proving good at the death once again

Ali Khan to Russell, FOUR runs

back of a length and wider of off, Russell reaches out for the ball and carves a thick outside edge fine of short third man for four

Ali Khan to Russell, SIX runs

on a length and outside off, can't bowl there to Russell. He sizes it up and baseball-swings it over the midwicket fence to silence the crowd

18.4
Ali Khan to Russell, no run

middle-stump yorker at 138ks, stabbed past Ali Khan to long-off. Top bowling from the USA quick. I'm still surprised that Ali Khan didn't get an IPL deal earlier this season

18.3
Ali Khan to Russell, no run

nice and full, closer to off, Russell throws his bat at ball...and misses it altogether

18.2
Ali Khan to Russell, no run

Ali Khan nails the wide yorker, inside the tramline, and beats Russell's swish

Ali Khan to Russell, SIX runs

Boom! Pitched up and outside off, Russell stands on off stump and clobbers it through the line. Lofted over the extra-cover boundary

Ali Khan to Russell, 1 wide

full and very wide outside off, off-side wide from USA's Ali Khan

Jamaica need 50 off 12 balls. This looks beyond the reach of Dre Russ

dipping full-toss on off, 117ks. Dragged away to long leg

17.5
Mohammad Hasnain to Worker, no run

lifter on middle, Worker flaps a pull behind square on the leg side

Abhijato: "Let's be honest - we will be surprised if Russell & Co. chase this down, but we'll be even more surprised if they don't!"

17.4
Mohammad Hasnain to Worker, no run

fuller and outside off, another slower ball, Worker can't touch it

Mohammad Hasnain to Worker, FOUR runs

low full-toss outside off, good delivery, but a thick outside edge streaks away to the third-man fence. Hasnain has his hands on his head

IF you can take your eye off Russellmania, Jarrod Kimber would like to introduce you to Nicholas Pooran, a child of franchise cricket

1
Mohammad Hasnain to Russell, 1 run

Dropped at sweeper cover. The sub fielder misses it this time. Back of a length and outside off, Russell keeps back, punches in the air, and gets another life

17.1
Mohammad Hasnain to Russell, no run

116.4ks slower ball, Russell wants to smoke it over the leg side, but is tricked by the lack of pace. This offcutter is toe-ended to point
