Trinbago Knight Riders lost Lendl Simmons early in the chase but got a great start, thanks to a 17-ball 30-run cameo from Sunil Narine. There were contributions from everyone at the top of the order besides Simmons, however, none of them could go on to play a big knock for them.
Trinbago Knight Riders, as a result, were bundled out for 184 runs in the second innings.

Hetmyer’s (45 off 20) late exploits, however, took the team to a competitive score of 178 runs in the first innings. It was a collective bowling effort from St. Kitts as four bowlers picked two wickets each in their quota of overs.
Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis came to the crease with a clear intent of going after the bowlers. The duo played some jaw-dropping shots and didn’t spare any opposition bowler. Chris Gayle scored 42 runs off just 27 balls, before getting out in the 8th over of the innings. However, Ewin Lewis kept hitting boundaries all across the park.
