Asif Ali finishes off the job

With a boundary from the bat of Asif Ali, it is a victory for Jamaica! Pakistan's star Asif Ali remains unbeaten on 47 off just 27 balls. Brathwaite with a quick 18 off just 9 does the job as well. Tallawahs chase 159 with 7 balls to spare.

22:58 (IST)19 Aug 2020
16 off the over! JT- 149/5

Carlos Brathwaite - Remember the name! He stands and delivers and Kuggeleijn is taken to the cleaners. 4 1 1 2 2 6 = 16 from the over. The last ball was a maximum over long-on. Brilliant hitting. 18 overs gone. Just 10 needed of 12 balls now.

22:56 (IST)19 Aug 2020
Andre Russell is gone!

Kesrick Williams gets the big fish. After being spanked for 18 in his first he has gone for just 14 in the next three and got the big wicket. JT- 133/5 after 17 ovs


22:41 (IST)19 Aug 2020

With Andre Russell and Asif Ali at the crease, the Zouks are going to have a tough time defending this total. Russell (185.43) and Ali (167.43) have the best SR among batsmen who have scored at least 1000 runs in T20 cricket from No 5 or lower since 2017.

22:40 (IST)19 Aug 2020
MAXIMUM! JT- 121/4

Asif Ali comes down the track and dispatches it dead straight and over the ropes! Zahir Khan will finish his quota by bowling the 16th over. Critical over in the context of the game coming up! And the over end with a boundary, that will take the scoreboard to 126/4 after 16 ovs.

22:30 (IST)19 Aug 2020
JT 101/4 after 13

Nabi back into the attack and Asif is not holding himself back here, A brilliant FOUR over covers! It was dropped in a bit short. In the next over, Kuggeleijn delivers a no-ball but is lucky as Rusell is unable to make use of the free hit.

22:17 (IST)19 Aug 2020
JT 84/4 after 11

Asif Ali comes in at 5. The JT innings slows down with the fall of Powell's wicket. Danger man Glenn Phillips succumbs to the pressure and gives his wicket away. Kuggeleijn with the catch. Phillips falls for 44 off 29. Which brings out the real danger man at 6 - Andre Russell. JT need 75 off 54

22:09 (IST)19 Aug 2020
Cornwall breaks the stand - JT 76/3 after 9.3

Wicket for the Zouks. Rovman Powell is caught in the deep. Cornwall strikes against the run of play, just as Jamaica were looking to take the game away. Powell falls for 26. Glenn Phillips, on 43, still leading this chase for JT as we go into a Timeout. 83 runs required off 63 balls with 7 wickets in hand when the chase resumes.

21:59 (IST)19 Aug 2020
29 runs in 2 overs

Kesrick Williams bowls the 7th over. Glenn Phillips hits a series of crunching shots to end the over. Six - Four - Six to end the over, as 18 runs come off it. Zahir Khan bowls the 8th over Rovman Powell gets into the act against him. Another six and a four to end the over. JT 65/2 after 8

21:50 (IST)19 Aug 2020
4 followed by a 6

Glenn Phillips is turning it on here. First, he picks a full toss and hits it for a four. The next one is a cracking SIX! over the wide long off region. And with that, the Powerplay comes to an end. JT- 36/2 after 6 overs

21:44 (IST)19 Aug 2020
Stunning catch

This is going from bad to worse for the Tallawahs. Another short ball, this time from the Kiwi pacer takes Nicholas Kirton by surprise. However, he went for the pull and sent it straight to the fielder in the deep where Mark Deyal takes a stunning catch. WOW!  JT- 13/2 after 4.1 ovs


21:34 (IST)19 Aug 2020
Caught by Sammy

WICKET! Walton is gone for 2 and its Obed McCoy who strikes. It was short and Walton went for the pull and gets a leading edge. Easy catch for the captain of St Lucia. JT- 6/1 after 2 overs


21:30 (IST)19 Aug 2020
Quiet first over

Walton and Glenn Phillips are at the crease. Walton is on strike. Kuggeleijn will open the attack. Kuggeleijn starts his CPL career with a good over, just 3 off it! 

21:09 (IST)19 Aug 2020
St Lucia end with 158/7

An action-packed last over where Daren Sammy was run out for 4. A quick three means eight came off the final over and that means the Zouks end at 158 after 20 overs. With the ball holding up a bit, it will not be an easy pitch to bat on in the second innings. Sammy will be hoping to get the best off his spinners! They need a good start to the proceedings.

21:03 (IST)19 Aug 2020

Mujeeb gets Roston Chase for 52. A good innings comes to an end.


21:02 (IST)19 Aug 2020
Where should Sammy bat?

'Daren Sammy should definitely bat higher up in the order for the Zouks and get back the form he was once known for. Can't expect him to hit right from the word GO these days.  Probably should come ahead of Nabi,' says Prasen on social media. Andy Flower should look into this. 

21:00 (IST)19 Aug 2020
50 for Roston Chase

SIX! Chase makes room on the leg-side and flicks it for a MAXIMUM! He's in fine nick today. Chase brings up his first T20 fifty from 39 balls! Good knock by the all-rounder, he needs to carry on! STZ - 146/5 after 18 ovs

20:54 (IST)19 Aug 2020

CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Mujeeb has the last laugh among the Afghans! Nabi (13) tries to guide one down leg-side, gets a leading edge! Afghans on fire on Independence Day - big hits from Nabi, but Mujeeb strikes back and 'The President' is on his way! Zouks- 136/5 after 17 overs.

20:53 (IST)19 Aug 2020

Caught by Powell!! A collision at deep mid-wicket between two fielders, but Rovman Powell has managed to cling on to the catch.Image
