Zouks captain Daren Sammy put Warriors into bat and every bowler chipped in with wickets, to plot the downfall of the opposition. It all started when Scott Kuggeleijn dismissed dismissed Brandon King for a nought. On the very next ball the Kiwi got the wicket of Shimron Hetmyer as well. But Nicholas Pooran denied the bowler, a hat-trick.

Pooran and the other opener, Chandrapaul Hemraj did add 14 runs together, before the former was dismissed by Mark Deyal. In the middle order, skipper Chris Green scored 11 runs, but that was never going to be enough. The entire lower batting order collapsed like a pack of cards with their last five wickets falling for just four runs. From 51/5, the Warriors collapsed to 55 all out. Apart from Kuggeleijn, Deyal, Zahir Khan and Roston Chase ended with two wickets each.

The second innings turned out to be a cakewalk for Zouks, as their openers, Rakheem Cornwall (32) and Deyal (19), finished the proceedings rather quickly. Cornwall hit three sixes and and two fours, while Deyal had four hits to the boundary.
