Excitement and anticipation were the dominant emotions at Monday night's T20 match between the Jamaica Tallawahs and Trinbago Knight Riders at Kingston's Sabina Park. The Tallawahs won the match.

For guests of title sponsor Digicel, the night also provided time for consuming copious glasses of wine and other liquor, nibble finger foods while enjoying the ambience of either the air- conditioned lounge or the magnificent view from balcony seats.

It was a similar experience for guests of JMMB, Scotiabank, FLOW, Stewart's Auto and other corporate

executives. For those who preferred quite conversations while browsing the Internet and taking in the action on large television screens, those options were available, too.

The first-rate Digicel customer service was felt even inside the hospitality box, as even before making requests, guests' glasses were kept full and plates replenished. The hosts included top-tier executives led by CEO David Butler, board member Harry Smith, Brian Bennett-Easy, general manager for Digicel Business, Trisha Williams-Singh, Elon Parkinson, Michelle Watkis-Robinson, Lesley Miller and others.

Spotted among corporate movers and shakers were Bruce James, Nari Williams-Singh, Julian Patrick, Senator Floyd Green, Matthew Samuda, Professior Edwin Jones and his wife Maria, Allison Peart, MP Alando Terrelonge and a host of others.
