22:14 (IST)30 Aug 2020
Barbados need 22 from 30 balls to win

Five overs since the last boundary. What seemed to be an easy win for Barbados has turned out to be a real thriller. 

22:12 (IST)30 Aug 2020
Charles gone, Barbados in trouble

Barbados are in the backfoot now after they lost their main in form Charles to Glen's bowling. The opener departed for 39 and now it's up to Anderson (8) and Nurse (2). Can St Lucia win this? Barbados still need 26 runs to win. BT are 67/4 after 14 overs.

21:52 (IST)30 Aug 2020

21:42 (IST)30 Aug 2020
Holder comes on at number four

21:29 (IST)30 Aug 2020

BREAKTHROUGH! Can St Lucia turn up the heat? Williams comes into the attack and on the second ball itself, he removes Hope (14) with a leg before wicket. Plumb. On comes Mayers. BT are 32/1 after 5.2 overs.

21:23 (IST)30 Aug 2020
Barbados are slow and steady so far

Barbados are taking it nice and easy here, knowing there's no rush as the required runrate is around 4.4. Hope (9*) and Charles (13*) have both stuck boundaries already to Nabi and Kuggeleijn. They still need 70 runs to win. BT are 23/0 after 4 overs.

21:10 (IST)30 Aug 2020
Charles, Hope begin chase

Johnson Charles and Shai Hope open for Barbados and they combine in singles to get just three runs from the first over bowled by Mohammad Nabi. They still need 90 runs to win. BT are 3/0 after the first over.

20:53 (IST)30 Aug 2020
SLZ bundled for 92/10

ALL OUT! Rashid finally gets a wicket as he bowls out Zahir Khan for 2. What a performance it has been by Barbados with the ball. The Zouks are bowled out for the second-lowest total in CPL history. Barbados now need 93 runs to win.

20:48 (IST)30 Aug 2020

Reifer comes into the attack and he bags an important wicket for Barbados! Najibullah (22) is gone as Bishop catches the ball at deep mid-wicket. Two balls later, Kuggeleijn (7) leaves the field too after being caught out. SLZ are 88/9 after 17 overs.

20:34 (IST)30 Aug 2020

Nurse disrupts St Lucia's rhythm now, as he takes the wicket of Glen. The batsman tried to slog for a maximum but the ball lands safely in the hands of Walsh. St Lucia in deep, deep trouble now. Kuggeleijn comes to the crease. SLZ are 77/7 after 14.2 overs.

20:32 (IST)30 Aug 2020
Glen, Najibullah try to get the runs

After clever coordination between Mayers and Hope dismissed Sammy via a run-out, Javelle Glenn and Najibullah are trying their best to lead St Lucia to a competitive total. Glen (8*) with a six, Najibullah (18*) with a four. SLZ are 77/6 after 14 overs.

20:18 (IST)30 Aug 2020

Walsh is on fire! He bags his third wicket of the match as he removes Nabi (2) from the pitch. The catch is taken by Charles, and the bowler ends his spell with a brilliant 3/19 from four overs. On comes captain Sammy for St Lucia. SLZ are 59/5 after 11 overs.

20:11 (IST)30 Aug 2020
Najibullah, Nabi hold fort

St Lucia's Afghanistani pair -- Najibullah (9*) and Nabi (2*) -- are at the crease now and they are somehow holding on, not falling victim to Barbados' momentum. Nine runs in the last two overs. SLZ are 58/4 after 10 overs.

20:06 (IST)30 Aug 2020

Chase (14) looked to up the ante with a brilliant boundary in the last over, but he's gone now. Barbados are in full swing, just like Walsh. He gets his second victim of the evening as he uproots the wickets of the St Lucia batsman. SLZ are 50/4 after 8.2 overs.

19:58 (IST)30 Aug 2020

After Barbados brought Rashid into the attack to look for the third wicket and he failed in his first over, Walsh has come up with the goods here. Boucher goes back to the pavilion on 18 and it's elation in the Barbados camp. SLZ are 42/3 after 6.5 overs.

19:54 (IST)30 Aug 2020
Zouks 35/2 after 6

End of first Powerplay. Roston Chase and Leniko Bouncer plow along the Zouks innings. The openers Cornwall and Andre Fletcher both fell cheaply, for 6, in the first 2 overs, needing a buit of a rebuilding effort from this pair.

19:52 (IST)30 Aug 2020
Barbados start strong, St Lucia stumble a bit

After Cornwall (6) and Fletcher (6) opened the innings, Barbados were quick to dismiss both of them within the first two overs. Bishop and Holder dismissed the openers and reduced St Lucia to 12/2 in just 1.2 overs. But Boucher (12*) and Chase (4*) have somewhat set the sail straight for their team, taking it slow to counter the Barbados bowling attack. SLZ are 30/2 after 5 overs.
