Trinbago Knight Riders win

A six and a four in the last over and Barbados Tridents end at 166/6. It was all too much in the end for Barbados as they fell short by 19 runs Trinbago Knight Riders win by a comfortable margin. 


23:28 (IST)23 Aug 2020
19 runs off the over

Holder strikes big with two sixes and a four and a couple to fetch 19 off the over. But as we said before t is getting too little too late. 35 needed off the final over!

23:25 (IST)23 Aug 2020
BT- 132/5 after 18 ovs

WICKET! Ali Khan finishes his spell with figures of 32/1 after 4 overs. Holder and Nurse are still unable to get the big hits and it is getting too little too late.

23:23 (IST)23 Aug 2020
BT- 125/5 after 17 ovs

Just 5 runs off the over. Dwayne Bravo with all his experience varies his pace ( from 93.9kph to 131.2kph ). Barbados Tridents need 61 runs in 18 balls. 

23:11 (IST)23 Aug 2020
WICKET ! BT - 120/5

Caught by Jayden Seales!! Narine gets a wicket in his final over. Shai Hope goes for 36(38). Over 60 more to get 

22:59 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Bowled!! BT- 100/4

The equation continues to tilt towards Trinbago Knight Riders as Ali Khan hits the bullseye. Carter clears his front leg but misses the line and even gets a send-off from Ali Khan. He is gone for 8(13). Barbados Tridents need 86 runs in 34 balls. 

22:57 (IST)23 Aug 2020
BT- 97/3 after 13 overs

Another boundary as Carter gets hold of a low full toss. But will it be enough as acceleration is the need of the hour? The run-rate is creeping and Bibhu on social media writes, "What is Shai Hope doing there ..."

22:52 (IST)23 Aug 2020
BT- 89/3 after 12 ovs

SIX! and the Tridents gets a move on with the. Hope swings and swings hard over wide long-on. But only more run off the over, as Fawad Ahmed comes back well.

22:43 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Gone at the halfway mark

Kyle Mayers is gone for 1 as a pull shot goes wrong off Khary Pierre. DM Bravo completes a great catch in the deep. This means 111 more runs needed to win for Barbados. At the same stage, TKR were 65/2. BT- 75/3 after 10.1 overs

22:32 (IST)23 Aug 2020

Anderson is gone! BT are 73/2 after 9.2 overs. A mix-up and the Kiwi is short of his ground! He fails again with the bat. Gone for 2(3)


22:26 (IST)23 Aug 2020

BREAKTHROUGH! Right after getting his fifty, Charles is sent back to the pavilion on 52. Fawad Ahmed strikes and it's a brilliant delivery which uprooted the off-stump. On comes Corey Anderson. BT are 68/1 after 8 overs.

22:21 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Trinbago put some pressure on

Trinbago try to go on the frontfoot in the last two overs as both Narine and Khan restricted the blistering opening partnership, mostly Charles, to just eight runs in twelve deliveries. Still, a wicket's missing for them. BT are 64/0 after 7 overs.

22:11 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Fifty up for Barbados Tridents!

After Narine's economical over where he conceded just four runs, Barbados again find their groove against Dwayne Bravo. After a two, Charles hits his third maximum of the innings over deep mid-wicket. 15 runs from the over. BT are 56/0 after 5 overs.

22:02 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Charles, Hope set the tone from the start

Johnson Charles (30*) and Shai Hope (7*) have started the chase quite well for Barbados with a flurry of fours in the opening two overs. Charles continues his momentum with two massive sixes against Jayden Seales -- one over fine leg, another over deep square leg. He finishes the over with a brilliant boundary with a hook. 20 runs from the third over. BT are 37/0 after 3 overs.

21:38 (IST)23 Aug 2020
TKR 185/3 after 20 ovs

50 up for Darren Bravo in the last ball of the innings! His 9th CPL half-century. It's a thrilling finish as Bravo smashes a six off the last ball. An incredible partnership by Darren Bravo and Kieron Pollard as 69 runs came off the last four overs which propels Trinbago Knight Riders to a commanding total of 185.

21:28 (IST)23 Aug 2020
TKR 155/3 after 18

SIX! Again one-handed! "How is he doing it," says the commentator It is all about the timing as he got hold off the low full toss from Reifer. Raymon Reifer has bowled nine full tosses in this year's CPL, more than any other bowler in the competition.

21:18 (IST)23 Aug 2020
TKR- 135/3 after 17

4 | 6 | 0 | 1 | 2 | 6 - no that's not a telephone number, that is 19 runs of the over. Darren Bravo along with Pollard plundered 19 runs in Santner's first over. Don't think the Kiwi is coming back for one more over. Incidentally, the last ball six from Pollard was a one-handed swipe! Phew!

21:13 (IST)23 Aug 2020
TKR 108/3 after 15

SIX! Pollard gets a full toss from Rashid Khan and he isn't gonna miss that one as he lofts it with all his might over wide long-on. That was all about timing and so easy on the eyes. "It's very ordinary captaincy from Jason having two international spinners in team and not getting them to bowl is very poor and when you are not using Walsh he shouldn't be in the team as there is a scope for batsmen may be Brooks Grimacing face," says Roop on social media. 

21:02 (IST)23 Aug 2020

Colin Munro is gone for 50 (30). A wicket to end a good little spell from Nurse. Munro came down the track and the lofted drive gets the toe end of the bat and its a huge hit. A smart catch by Rashid Khan! TKR - 87/3 after 13 ovs


20:59 (IST)23 Aug 2020
Back to back boundaries

Ashley Nurse is being taken apart here by Colin Munro - first, the reverse sweep and then the cut short split the inner circle. A single to follow it up and that's the half-century! 29-ball half-century for Munro
