Trinbago Knight Riders won by 9 wkts

Trinbago Knight Riders win by 9 wickets to storm into the finals! Lendl Simmons' half-century guides TKR to a fine victory and that makes it 11 wins in a row for the Knight Riders!

22:25 (IST)08 Sep 2020
50 for Simmons!

FOUR, fifty for Simmons! 


22:23 (IST)08 Sep 2020
Top-Edge but SIX!

Intentions clear from Simmons that he isn't going to let Russell dominate. Tries to attack the short ball, is a bit late on the shot but he goes really hard at it and that ensures that even a miscue goes the distance | TKR- 90/1 after 13 overs 

22:18 (IST)08 Sep 2020
TKR almost home

Lendl Simmons picking up the pace as the finish line approaches! Two Hero Maximums and a four off DreRuss, he's in sight of a second fifty of the year, and the Knight Riders are 90/1 off 13 - just 18 to win, here comes Lamichhane.

22:15 (IST)08 Sep 2020
SIXXX! TKR- 76/1 after 11

SIX, he's smashed this! Short ball from Russell but Simmons is ready for it and takes it on with a ferocious hook shot over deep square leg. Hit it with the breeze and that's not a very long part of the ground either

22:03 (IST)08 Sep 2020
Halfway Mark! TKR- 61/1 after 10

Time Out! Simmons & Webster are settled and the total is getting smaller. What are the Tallawahs to do? Will the drinks break bring fortune for them? Trinbago Knight Riders need 47 runs in 60 balls

21:57 (IST)08 Sep 2020
End of Powerplay! TKR- 42/1 after 6

Too easy for Trinbago Knight Riders. They are cruising to the finals. Their unbeaten streak continues and barring an upset they loom like the favourites to win the CPL.

21:47 (IST)08 Sep 2020
TKR- 23/1 after 3 ovs

Back to back 4's - The first one flies away past slip but the next one is a good shot by Tion Webster as he makes room to a ball which is slightly short and slaps it through the covers.

21:41 (IST)08 Sep 2020
Mujeeb gets Sunil Narine early

Bowled!! Mujeeb gets the big fish! Narine is gone 4. That was a brilliant arm ball and the batsman was guilty of trying to play the rash shot over leg-side. Success for the young Afghan bowler. "Mujeeb has INSANELY upped his skillsets & seems to have 5-6 different variations, bowling all of them with great control & venom. Afghanistan is the most experienced team in UAE, having played the most T20Is among all nations. Mujeeb's gonna be a serious threat," writes Srini on Twitter.

21:35 (IST)08 Sep 2020
The Chase Begins

HERE WE GO! Simmons and Narine are at the crease. Simmons is on strike. F Edwards will open the attack! Back to back boundaries for Simmons of Fidel Edwards. TKR- 10/0 after 1 over

21:17 (IST)08 Sep 2020
How good was Hosein tonight?

Akeal Hosein made all the difference at the start! Take a look at his 3 wickets.

21:12 (IST)08 Sep 2020
Jamaica Tallawahs 1st Innings

SIXXXXXXXXXXXXXX! OFF THE LAST BALL! Carlos Brathwaite - Remember the name and he finishes in style as he times the yorker length from Ali Khan to perfection down the ground for a big hit. Tallahwahs end at 107/7 in 20 overs. Here is the scorecard-



21:05 (IST)08 Sep 2020

A huge hit down the ground from Powell over long-off! But K Pierre has the last laugh as Powell goes for the same shot again and can only get an outside edge. Pollard takes the catch. JT-92/7 after 18 overs 

21:03 (IST)08 Sep 2020
JT- 78/6 after 16 ovs

Boundary! Edged! Goes wide of Bravo at slip and races through third man for a boundary. Pitched it short on sixth stump, went to cut and a thick toe edge is out of reach for Bravo.

21:02 (IST)08 Sep 2020
Dre Russ is Gone! JT- 68/6 in 14 ovs

Russell out, caught at slip! But did he hit it? He's furious and does not hide his anger! This looked like it came straight off the pad. He came down the track, only to find Narine shortening his length further. It spins in, deflects off the pad to slip. The finger goes up though. What a big moment. Russell c Dwayne Bravo b Narine 2(5). 

20:29 (IST)08 Sep 2020
Bowled!! JT 65/5 after 12 ovs

Chopped on! The googly does the trick. Bonner goes deep in his crease, but don't think he picked the wrong 'un. Gets cramped for room while trying to play a horizontal-batted stroke. The ball ricochets onto the sticks off his glove. Bonner b Fawad Ahmed 41(42) | 11 overs into the 1st CPL 2020 semi-final and not a single over of pace bowling yet. How long before we see all 20 overs by spin in a T20?

20:13 (IST)08 Sep 2020
JT- 42/4 after 8 ovs

FOUR! Jamaica are getting a move on! The offbreak was shorter and Bonner cuts it away and a misfield allows a boundary. Meanwhile, here is something which occurred before the toss- #BlackLivesMatter

20:11 (IST)08 Sep 2020
End of powerplay: 28 runs | 4 wickets

And it is ALL Trinabgo Knight Riders so far! Both openers, pinch-hitter Mujeeb and Asif Ali back in the dugbout, and just 28 on the board for the Tallawahs.

"This I think will be around 9th or 10th match of cpl where the run scored in the scoreboard will look like scoreboard of a t-10 league," Safoor on social media." However, the picture below suggests a Test match! Its all happening here!


19:57 (IST)08 Sep 2020
Number 4 gone | JT 25/4

Just when Jamaica were recuperating a bit with a couple of boundaries Nkrumah Bonner along with a couple of wides, Akeal Hosein gets his third wicket as Asif Ali doesn't bother to keep his cut down. Pollard completes an easy catch. The Tallwahs are in deep trouble.


19:48 (IST)08 Sep 2020
Jamaica lose top 3

Akeal Hosein strikes again! Mujeeb tried to play the big hit but lobs towards the first slip. DJ Bravo dives forward and completes a superb catch.Its all falling apart for Jamaica here.
