That'll be that for today. Jump over to our coverage of England v Pakistan to keep you busy before JT v BT this evening, and thanks for joining Chandan, Raghav, Sreshth and myself throughout.

Here's Kieron Pollard: "Over the years you get to understand your game a bit more. Over the last 18 months I've been quietly working on a couple of things and it has been reaping rewards for me. One of the things is trying to keep that stable base and keeping the face of the bat open. For me, it's about focusing on what I can control and taking emotion out of it. Ali Khan is struggling right now with a niggle in his hamstring. He's working hard to get back... hopefully in the next couple of games or so he can be ready. [So much spin] They've been struggling against spin. Three of our four spinners go away from the bat for their right-handers. Our bowlers have been doing pretty well. [Can you get better?] Our cricket was a bit bad - we dropped a couple of catches, a couple of misfields as well. We'll continue to strive for excellence."

Rovman Powell: "They played better cricket today - credit where credit is due. Andre batted well and that's a positive we can take away from the game. [Walton] When we look at our squad, we still have to back Chadwick - we just have to hope he comes good at some point. Hopefully he has the mental strength to pull through. [Russell batting higher?] A lot of persons will say that, but it's for the top order to set it up for Andre and Andre to do what he can do at the back end. [Combination?] Sometimes you won't get it perfect. We took a risk today. 180 on that wicket was probably 15-20 runs too many but at halfway we thought we could have got it."

Colin Munro is the Man of the Match: "never went duck-duck in CPL before, so had a chat with the boys, had a bit of luck, and we scored enough there. Was very hot today, steamy. Pollard is a freak. Russell and Polly hit it so well. Polly backs his boys well."

Mossy: "Almost every league Russell plays in, he asks to bat higher. Some management just hasn't learned that you win more when your most impactful player faces more deliveries and doesn't come in when the game is already gone."

Kevin: "TKR kept Russell off strike, that is why they won. Russell had 9 overs to bat."

1.38pm Could Tallawahs have sent Russell in earlier? Doesn't need hindsight to say yes. They missed a trick with their batting order and have paid a price, allowing teams fifth and sixth to try and climb up the points table. Be back with the captains' thoughts

Kapil Baldawa: "Really poor man management n planning.. Russell should have come above Powell n he gets to play least number of balls.. JT lose by 20 runs and Powell n Bonner wasted those crucial 6-8 balls, good enough for Russell to win the game. Really ordinary from JT overall"

Sathyen: "What was Dre Rus doing at No.6? That was as brutal a hitting as you would ever see. What a player."

Dawolf: "TKR are very lucky the Tallawahs don't know when to use Russell properly...."
