Spirited T&T bowlers defend middling total

That's all we have from this match, you can now tune into CSK v Titans to be played at the same ground. It's right here. That's all from me, Vishal Dikshit, goodbye!

Denesh Ramdin, T&T captain and Man of the Match: "It was good victory, we were 10-15 runs short but Badree and Rampaul setup the win by bowling well in the first six overs. I told the guys if we get early wickets and they don't cross 35 in six overs, we have a good chance. We didn't have the partnerships going and we have to go from strength to strength. I tried my best [while batting] and the ball was doing a bit early, we will see if I need to go up the order."

James Hopes: "We bowled and fieleded pretty well. The pitch got a bit quicker later and tougher to score on, we have three games to go and have a bit of work to do before Tueday night. We restricted them to a score that was definitely chaseable but we didn't bat well."

Ravi Rampaul: "I'm very happy with my performance as it's my first competitive match after my injury. I think the batsmen misinterpret my run-up and don't think I will bowl very fast. T&T is a strong team, a couple of years age we made around 100 and won on the last ball against Mumbai. The credit must go to the captain for the way he batted and handled the bowlers."

T&T will be very pleased with the win after their batsmen failed to put on strong partnerships. They were 83 for 6 in the 14th over but Denesh Ramdin led them to a defendable 135 as McDermott took four wickets. And, as some feared, the Heats batsmen, without Pomersbach and Watson, couldn't do much against T&T's spinners. Badree first stifled them with an opening spell of 1 for 16 from four overs and Sunil Narine came later to take two wickets. Rampaul's economical bowling also got him four wickets and Joe Burns' knock of 45 went in vain as he ran out of partners.

Emrit to Cutting, OUT

Cutting has run out of luck and is run-out on! He missed the slower ball outside off as he tried to cut it late, Hauritz came for a single but Cutting wasn't ready and by the time he came out and went back, the keeper got a direct hit and replays confirm he's out of the ground. In case he wasn't, Emrit picked up the ball and got a direct hit at non-striker's as Cutting went for the single since Hauritz had reached the other end by then
