CPL 2020, GAW vs JT Highlights: Guyana Amazon Warriors beat Jamaica Tallawahs by 14 runs by defending a paltry total of 118 in the Caribbean Premier League 2020 at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad on Saturday.

After Jamaica won the toss and chose to field first, Guyana got off to a brilliant start through Brandon King (29) and Chandrapaul Hemraj (21), scoring 55/0 after 5 overs. Jamaica soon turned things around through the likes of Mujeeb ur Rahman (3/18) and Carlos Brathwaite (3/14) and bundled their opposition for 118. In their chase, Jamaica faltered from the very first ball itself as Guyana reduced them to 4/3 inside four overs. Despite a late Andre Russell (52*) show, Jamaica couldn’t make it over the line as they were restricted to 104/7 in a CPL classic.

CPL 2020, GAW vs JT Highlights:

03:30 (IST)23 Aug 2020

Edwards gets a crucial single off the first ball of Keemo Paul and gives Russell the strike. On the second ball, Russell fails to connect properly and it ends up as a dot. Russell fails to get the runs on the third ball... and the fourth ball too, and that takes the result away from Jamaica. A Russell six to end the match. The over ends with just seven runs conceded -- what an over by Keemo Paul! What a win by Guyana! Their bowlers turned things around and restricted Jamaica to 104/7 after 20 overs.

03:24 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Russell looking unstoppable

INTO THE STANDS! There's no stopping Russell here as he hits a maximum off the first ball of Naveen. The bowler kicks the turf in frustration. The Jamaica batsman doubles on the agony as he hits another boundary on the second ball of the over. Russell is throwing the kitchen sink now. 22 runs needed from the last over. Fidel Edwards will be on strike. JT are 97/7 after 19 overs.

03:18 (IST)23 Aug 2020

OH MY! Russell (36*) is absolutely clubbing Tahir here! On the first ball of the over, he launches a full ball into the stands, and he follows it up with another six on over deep mid-wicket. A four to finish off the over. 32 more runs. JT are 87/7 after 18 overs.

03:15 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Russell on fire

After Lamichhane was dismissed by the experienced Tahir, Russell (19*) has got a grip on the game now. He hit his first six of CPL 2020 in the previous over and he follows it up with back-to-back boundaries facing Paul. One over mid-wicket and another to the third man. Can he turn things around? Jamaica need 49 runs from 18 balls. JT are 70/7 after 17 overs.

03:02 (IST)23 Aug 2020

BIG WICKET! In his quest to up the ante, Powell loses his wicket to Naveen. He is caught by Chris Green and the batsman departs for 23. Jamaica are making it harder for themselves now. Sandeep Lamichhane is on now. JT are 50/6 after 14.1 overs.

02:56 (IST)23 Aug 2020

Powell (22*), the captain, is leading from the front here as he clubs a full length ball right over deep mid-wicket for a meaty six. But no, oh no! Jamaica lose another wickets as Keemo Paul absolutely uproots the wickets of Brathwaite (5). Out walks Tallawahs' last hope -- Andre Russell. Can the all-rounder change things around? Jamaica need 70 more runs. JT are 49/5 after 13 overs.

A CPL classic?
02:39 (IST)23 Aug 2020

After overs of resilience, Jamaica finally falter. Hemraj comes into the attack and proves to be the difference as he gets Ali gets caught behind on 14. Jamaica are in a bit of a spot now. Carlos Brathwaite is on. JT are 36/4 after 10 overs.

02:34 (IST)23 Aug 2020
An over of an injury, a dropped catch and a couple of extras

Keemo Paul comes into the attack and on the very first ball itself, he hits Powell (13*) on his helmet. The Jamaica physio rushes out to the middle which causes a little bit of a break in between. The captain carries on and takes a single. On the next ball, Ali (14*) gets a top-edge on his pull and Nedd at fine leg puts down a regulation catch. Unfortunately, the youngster injures himself trying to catch the ball. Paul then finishes the over with two wides and three dots. What an eventful over! JT are 33/3 after 9 overs.

02:21 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Slow and steady wins the race?

Ali (9*) and Powell (8*) hold the fort quite well and they are slowly growing into the game with the captain even surviving two LBW appeals by Naveen. He gets a boundary and tries to get his team on the frontfoot here. JT are 21/3 after 7 overs.

02:12 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Ali, Powell taking it slow

After Asif Ali broke the sequence of dots and wickets in the fourth over, Jamaica manage to not lose another wicket in Green's third over. Ali (8*) and Powell (2*) deal in singles and get six runs from the over. JT are 14/3 after 5 overs.

02:06 (IST)23 Aug 2020

Ashmead Nedd comes into the attack for Guyana and with the first ball of his CPL career, he gets a wicket. Glenn Phillips (0) swings carelessly and his shot lands safely in the hands of Keemo Paul. What a crazy match! JT are 4/3 after 3.1 overs.

02:02 (IST)23 Aug 2020

ANOTHER LBW! Green is on fire for Guyana as he dismisses Bonner on 2. Jamaica Tallawahs' captain Rovman Powell comes to the crease. Can he turn things around for his team? JT are 4/2 after 2.2 overs.

02:00 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Guyana keeps the pressure on

Nkrumah Bonner came on for Walton and he ended the first over with a cracking boundary. Imran Tahir comes into the attack for Guyana and he gets a maiden. A cagey affair in Trinidad right now. JT are 4/1 after 2 overs.

01:53 (IST)23 Aug 2020

Walton and Glenn Phillips are at the crease to chase 119. And Chris Green gets a breakthrough on the first ball of the innings. Walton is sent back on a golden duck after he was trapped by the pacer. JT are 0/1 after 0.1 overs.

01:42 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Jamaica Tallawahs need 119 to win

Nedd (1) departs right after Naveen injected some hope by hitting Guyana's first boundary in 15 balls. Bonner and Phillips combined to dismiss the tailender via a run out. Soon after, in the first ball of the final over, Naveen (14) is dismissed by Brathwaite and that's it -- the agony ends for Guyana. They finished their innings on 118 all-out. Jamaica now need just 119 runs to win.

01:32 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Naveen, Nedd under pressure

Some good running between the wickets by Naveen and Nedd as they try to help their team put up a respectable score on the board. Still, just eight runs from the last two overs. GAW are 107/8 after 18 overs.

01:22 (IST)23 Aug 2020

Brathwaite gets the big fish as Taylor is sent back to the pavilion on 21 after he was caught out Powell. Naveen-ul-Haq and Ashmead Nedd are in the middle now. Can Guyana finish on a decent total? Highly doubtful. GAW are 98/8 after 15.5 overs.

01:20 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Guyana continue to plummet

Guyana scored 55 runs with the help of King (29) and Hemraj (21) in the opening five overs. Since then, they have just scored 39 runs in the last ten overs, losing seven wickets. Jamaica are clearly in the driving seat of the match.

01:18 (IST)23 Aug 2020

Guyana are heading for an early dinner here as Lamichhane dismisses Chris Green on 2. Clean bowled. Ross Taylor is fast running out of partners as Jamaica continue to be on a roll tonight. GAW are 94/7 after 15 overs.
