8.27am  Stay tuned for the presentation...
8.25am  Earlier in the game, Saint Lucia Kings were asked to bat first and they put on a total of 161 runs, thanks to the opening stand of 86 runs between Faf du Plessis and Johnson Charles. In reply, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots never got going. None of their batters found any sort of rhythm and they were eventually dismissed for a total of 100 runs.
8.17am  St Kitts and Nevis Patriots came out to bat with some aggressive intent. Evin Lewis did play some lusty blows, but he perished and could not go on till the end. Once he was dismissed, wickets started falling in a heap. They suffered a massive batting collapse and were bundled out for a mere 100 runs. It's been disheartening for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. They will be hoping to come back stronger in their next contest.
8.14am  Saint Lucia Kings got off to a bright start, they grabbed three wickets within the Powerplay and put their opposition under the pump early on. It was their pacers that used the conditions perfectly and were rewarded for their good work. Saint Lucia Kings made sure to capitalize on their momentum and kept grabbing wickets at regular intervals. Matthew Forde and David Wiese were the bowlers who took 3 wickets each, while Alzarri Joseph and Roshon Primus grabbed two wickets. A special mention to Tim David as well. He might have not scored runs today, but he took five catches and made his presence felt.
8.13am  A comprehensive victory for Saint Lucia Kings! They have given the crowd a lot to cheer about in their last game at home. With this win, Saint Lucia Kings have grabbed two crucial points and have jumped to fourth place in the points table. It's been a tough day in the office for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. No batter got going in the chase and as a result, they have been defeated by 61 runs.
David Wiese to Akila Dananjaya
OUT! TAKEN! David Wiese gets another wicket and ends the innings of St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on 100 runs. Another catch for Tim David as he equals the record of most catches by a player in a single match this season. Wiese bowls this slower, full and on off, Akila Dananjaya makes room and lofts it, but he fails to pick the slower one and is through his shot early. As a result, the ball goes high  up in the air and behind mid off, where Tim David moves back and takes his fifth catch of the innings.  Saint Lucia Kings WIN BY 61 RUNS.
