11.14pm TKR captain Kieron Pollard: "We were short of runs. That was a very good wicket. We can't take anything away from the knock Evin played. We have another game in less than 24 hours time."

Dwayne Bravo: "To me TKR is the best team in the tournament so to get the result I'm very proud of the squad. Great to see Chris tee off and Evin is the best in the world at the moment. It's great to see him get a hundred. We have to rest up tonight. Winning is a habit and we have to keep going."

11.10pm Evin Lewis is Player of the Match: "It was a lot of hard work. A lot of sacrifice and I'm happy I did it."

11.04pm A clinic from Evin Lewis has put this game to bed in 14.4 overs! One of the best knocks of the tournament. He did have a slice of luck, dropped on 29 in the deep. But aside from that he dominated. Lewis struck 11 sixes and five fours to finish with 102 not out from 52 balls. Chris Gayle played a superb hand up top. Bopara scored 7 runs in an unbeaten 85-run partnership with Lewis.

Sarah : "@Ananth I don't think it was as simple as windies' management "leaving out" narine. He's been saying for a while that he didn't feel confident to come back to international cricket. As much as selectors choose players, said players have to make themselves available too "
