That's it from us tonight. Come back tomorrow when the Zouks take on the first-place Guyana Amazon Warriors. For Hemant Brar and the scoring team, I'm Peter Della Penna. Take care!

Carlos Brathwaite: "With the showers around, we thought Fabian with the form he was in would get us closer on Duckworth-Lewis. We didn't want it to wait until it gets to 17-18 an over for Fabian to come in so that's why we sent him in early. We had to take a few more chances in the middle rather than wait for Hardus to come back."

Darren Sammy: "I thought we should have got 180 with the start we had but it was difficult to go out and start on the wicket. [Hardus] is someone I have a lot of respect for. I first saw him the the T10 tournament where he went for just six an over."

Hardus Viljoen is Player of the Match for his 3 for 14: "It's a great team effort out there. We knew it was a do or die game so for everybody to have stuck to the team plans gives us great joy. If I could bowl a lot of slower balls, it got a bit tacky after the rain. You just had to have clear plans. Tonight was my night and I'm just glad to come out on top. I think we got a lot out of this performance and let's hope we can keep going."

9:41 pm The Zouks have clawed out of last place and have leapfrogged both the Tallawahs and the Tridents into fourth place with this 20-run win. The Patriots have to beat the Tridents in four days time in their last league match to clinch a playoff spot. If they lose that match, they'll need to sweat out the rest of the round-robin stage to hope the Tridents, Tallawahs or Zouks continue to falter.

Williams to Joseph, OUT, another slower ball wicket! Skies this length ball on the stumps high over mid-on. de Grandhomme charges in from the boundary at long-on and juggles this initially before taking the catch on his knees right on the 30-yard ring.
