Trinbago Knight Riders won the toss and opted to bowl first. Anderson Phillip (1-35) struck in the second ball of the innings to dismiss Dwayne Smith (0) while Javon Searles (1-18) accounted for Kane Williamson (6) in the second over.

Just as the innings were reeling at 62 for seven, knocks from Shamar Springer (21) and Parnell (44) helped them post 136 for nine in the 20 overs.

In the chase, Sunil Narine (9), Colin Munro (2), Darren Bravo (4) and Denesh Ramdin (8) fell cheaply while Brendon McCullum (26) had to retire hurt following a 19 ball knock.

Despite knocks from Dwayne Bravo (22) and Searles (29), Knight Riders managed only 120 before they were bowled out in 18.2 overs.
