That's all from us from Tarouba. Don't forget to catch the second game in less than three hours. Till then, see you.
Narine is the Player of the Match: "Getting Taylor's wicket was key while bowling. Batting got easier as the day went. They bowled well, but I just continued trying to stay as still as possible. It's a good win, although it got close."
Losing captain Chris Green: "It was going to be tough beating 11 wins in a row from last year. Was a tough game, and first game in a long time, so. Given the start, losing two early wickets, I think Taylor and Hetmyer batted really well. We thought 140 would be a good score. We spoke about holding that length, and when we went away from that, we got hurt. Plenty of room for improvement."
Winning captain Pollard: "Any competition, you want to start well. A little scratchy and scrappy but good to get over the line. We needed to play a good game of cricket and it was a good game of cricket. Points on the board at the start.
