This is it from the live coverage. Hope all of you have enjoyed it. That's it for the day. See you all tomorrow. Until then, signing off, this was me - Arjun Bhall - alongside Kingshuk Kusari and Karthik Raj from the comm box.
Raymon Reifer: When I came in, I was just looking to knock the ball around, we (with Glenn Phillips) were looking to build a partnership and then played our shots in the last three overs. It was all about executing the plans (against Andre Russell), just focusing on hitting the lengths. It means a lot, they have always supported me right through (on his family).
Raymon Reifer is the Player of the Match. 
A clinical win for the boys from Barbados - who were reduced to 51-4 and 82-5 in the first innings at one stage - before putting 161 runs on board. All thanks to the superb effort by Glenn Phillips and Raymon Reifer. The former lit the centre stage with his unbeaten 56, he was assisted by the bowling allrounder's invaluable 31 off 20. 

The Royals kept the momentum in their court in the second half of the game as well. Mohd Amir scalped the first one when he took Walton, following by Haider Ali. Then the party was joined by Reifer, he picked Kennar Lewis inside the powerplay. Captain Powell fell prey to a Hayden Walsh fielding masterpiece, resulting in the Tallawahs being at 33-4 at 5.2 overs. 

However, Carlos Braithwaite and Shamarh Brooks did some stitching work. The scored an almost run-a-ball partnership to take their side to 99 before Reifer came back with a plan, just like the Professor from Money Heist. He bowled six wides, but got rid of both Brathwaite and Andre Russell in the same over. It was an artificial excitement after that. In the end, the faster bowlers wrapped the innings to taking the team home by 15 wins.

After the inclusion of Raymon Reifer, Barbados Royals are looking a better outfit. They were always the best pace-battery in this season, but were struggling with their fourth and fifth bowling options. A clinical performance but batting could get a bit better. Might be a proper number three batter can fill in the void.
First win of the season for the Royals. Jason Holder's men are certainly up and running as they have blown the Tallawahs here at Basseterre. In the end, they have registered a victory by 15 runs.

19.6 T Perera to V Permaul
1 Another leg cutter. Swatted away to deep extra cover for a run. Finally, finally Royals have opened their account. Thisara Perera does it safely. Concedes just 7 runs off his last over and grabs a couple of wickets to see his team through. 
19.5 T Perera to V Permaul
0 Last man in. Permaul misses the slog.

Another one gone. Mathematically now it's impossible for the Tallawahs.
19.4 T Perera to C Green
W Slower ball, and gone. Green had to go for that ball and it is quite well bowled by Perera to pitch that up and roll his fingers to bowl the leg cutter at the last moment. The moment Green hit it, he knew that he had no chance. Skies the ball up in the air and has to depart. 
19.3 T Perera to V Permaul
1 Full and straight to Permaul. He slogs the ball to the leg side, but will only get one.

19.2 T Perera to S Brooks
W Gone! 5 off the first ball, but he comes back to edge the batter. Hard length, Brooks swipes his bat at it, but misses the line. Simple catch by the keeper. 
Dropped. Also, palms it to the fence. Four runs. The replays suggest as the ball was fallen a bounce inside the ropes, before running over.
19.1 T Perera to S Brooks
4 Clubbed to long off, but what has happened there? Was it another misjudgement once again? That's a dropped chance for sure, but has that fallen inside the rope before going into the boundary. In the slot from Perera. Brooks hits it hard, but does not get much elevation. The fielder first comes forward and then has to backpedal. Manages to drop the high chance and conceded a boundary. 
19.1 T Perera to S Brooks
WD Perera from over the wicket to defend 23 runs. Bowls one down the leg side for a wide. 
And it is done. Brilliant set of four overs by Reifer. He has picked three huge wicket to break the backbone of Tallawahs, that too on his season debut. The batting side now need 23 required off the last over.
