That's all for this evening. Thank you for joining us and we look forward to bringing you more coverage of the 2018 Hero CPL.
 
TKR goes top of the table with 12 points from eight matches, while St Kitts and Nevis Patriots occupying second place on 11 points but having already completed their 10-match fixture. The Amazon Warriors and Jamaica Tallawahs sit third and fourth on 10 points apiece, having played eight and nine matches, respectively. 
 
A win for the Tallawahs or the Amazon Warriors would push the Patriots down the order. However, TKR can seal first place with a victory from their two remaining matches, should Amazon Warriors win their two remaining fixtures, as they hold a superior net run rate of 1.31.
 
TKR's victory was set up by the second wicket partnership of 135 by Ramdin and Munro, and was completed by excellent spells with the ball by all of their bowlers as Ali Khan, 3-22; Fawad Ahmed, 2-20, Khary Pierre, 2-21; DJ Bravo, 2-22; and Sunil Narine, 1-15, stifled Amazon Warriors. 
 
Colin Munro picked up the Man-of-the-Match award for his well-played 90.
