Narine on the charge

Imran Tahir is introduced in the attack and its not a good welcome as Narine whacks him down the ground for a four and then gets hold of the lose half volley outside the off stump to deposit it over the ropes towards the deep extra cover region. 17 came off the over and TKR- 81/2 after 9 overs.

23:07 (IST)18 Aug 2020

22:21 (IST)18 Aug 2020
OUT!

The dangerous Nicholas Pooran is gone for 18! Jayden Seales picks up his first CPL wicket. It was low full-toss which was hit hight in the air and Bravo makes no mistake. Very impressive from young Seales as he didn't get overawed by Pooran's movement. GAW- 111/4 after 14 ovs

22:14 (IST)18 Aug 2020
