Contrastingly, this was the 4th successive defeat for the Tallawahs. Their bowling was once again demolished as the Knight Riders finished with 267/2 with Colin Munro (96* off 50) and Lendl Simmons (86* off 42) making key contributions. Glenn Phillips started off the chase with a 32-ball 62 but lack of batting depth costed the Jamaican franchise who settled with 226/5.
