Jamaica Tallawahs v Barbados Tridents

Jamaica Tallawahs won by 7 wickets (with 9 balls remaining)

Greetings everyone! Hi and Welcome to ESPN Cricinfo's coverage of the Caribbean Premier League. We are into the last match of the knock-out stage. Queen's Park Oval, Trinidad is all set to host the second semi-final to be played between Chris Gayle's Jamaica Tallawahs and Kieron Pollard's Barbados Tridents.

Kumar Sangakara comes in for Ahmed Shehzad, which makes JT look a better batting unit. Gayle has found some form in his last match, Hyatt and Russell are in a decent touch too. On the other hand, Barbados are back on winning streak and Azhar Mahmood will be playing tonight for the first time which will boost their confidence .

Danny Morrison with the two captains for the toss - Jamaica Tallawahs have won the toss and will bowl first.
