Dockrell has a chat with the Umpire's and then looks up to the skies as he realises what he has done! No Fifty for him today although his team did look very impressive as they claim a seven wicket win.
From the moment that Simi Singh took Hand for 22, the Lightning alway looked in control of the chase, in felt that theynever got out of second gear. Which is an ominious sign for the other teams.
The Reds bowlers just couldn't dry up the runs and it's not a surprise to hear that Simi Singh has just been named player of the match.
Has the Lightning chased this down within 16 overs, they also pick up a bonus point for the win and sit proudly on top of the table. A nice way to start in front of your home fans.
We now have a two hour break before the second game of the day, so hopefully you'll be able to join me then as the Warriors take on the Knights. Until then, this is Justin saying bye from Pembroke.
