CPL 2020 Trinbago Knight Riders vs Jamaica Tallawahs: Highlights

Trinbago’s 11th straight win was set up by the TKR bowlers, primarily the spinners, who bagged wickets from the word go and never ever permitted the opposition off the hook at all.

The Jamaican workforce had a miserable start off to the game immediately after they misplaced the initially 4 wickets for just 25 runs. Bonner did consider to resist but he also perished for 41 when captain Rovman Powell scored 33.

Akeal Hosein scalped 3 wickets when Khary Pierre picked up two. Sunil Narine and Fawad Ahmed received 1 wicket apiece.

Knight Riders’ Lendl Simmons major-scored with an unbeaten 54 off 44. The Windies batsman stitched a 97-run stand with Tion Webster, who created 44 off 43 not out. Mujeeb Ur Rahman received the lone wicket for Tallawahs, that of Sunil Narine.

“It really is a good feeling to repay my captain’s faith. To be in a position to give one hundred % for my workforce feels good. It was a good surface to bowl on, received some spin and there was also some swing on give. I have been sitting in my area and telling myself that I have been carrying out decently and just wanted 1 Guy-of-the-Match effectiveness to major matters off. And definitely glad that it really is occurred,” Hosein was delighted immediately after winning player of the match award in the CPL semi-last.
