Champions League Twenty20 - Qualifying Pool 2

Trinidad & Tobago v Yorkshire

Yorkshire won by 6 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)


Root to Perkins, OUT, the ploy to open with Root on a track that has helped the quicks earlier today works, Perkins slams that amiable delivery to the man at long-on, and he will now hurry back to the dug-out, T&T have a penchant for flamboyant (or rash) batting and it has been on show in the first over itself

WKD Perkins c Ballance b Root 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Trinidad & Tobago 7/1   LMP Simmons 7* (3b 1x4)   JE Root 1-0-7-1


Sidebottom to Simmons, OUT, make that two down, length ball outside off, Simmons looks to carve it through cover, a healthy top edge results in a simple catch for the wicketkeeper, and T&T's openers are both in the dug-out

LMP Simmons c †Hodgson b Sidebottom 7 (4m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 175.00

Trinidad & Tobago 8/2   AB Barath 0* (0b)   RJ Sidebottom 0.1-0-1-1


Patterson to Barath, OUT, swing and a miss. Pretty mindless from T&T so far. Patterson pitches in the rare full ball, and he swings across the line, but his bat is in one district and the ball in another. Middle stump gone. Wicket-maiden

AB Barath b Patterson 0 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Trinidad & Tobago 8/3   DM Bravo 0* (5b)   SA Patterson 1-1-0-1


Rashid to Bravo, OUT, length ball on off stump, Bravo looks to smash that out of Centurion, not quite off the middle of the bat, the ball goes very very high, but not far enough, long-on is in position to pouch that, Bravo misses out on a half-century but has done his job in re-building this innings

DM Bravo c Ballance b Rashid 45 (56m 49b 3x4 2x6) SR: 91.83

Trinidad & Tobago 101/4   D Ramdin 43* (29b 5x4 1x6)   AU Rashid 1.1-0-14-1


Rashid to Mohammed, OUT, major communication breakdown here, Jason Mohammed is run out, and T&T have lost two in an over, just when it seemed they had the platform and the set batsmen for an all-out blast in the final over, that was played towards backward point, both batsmen were nearly at the same end, there was plenty of time for the fielder to lob the ball to the bowler

JN Mohammed run out 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Trinidad & Tobago 102/5   D Ramdin 44* (30b 5x4 1x6)   AU Rashid 1.3-0-15-1


Rashid to Ramdin, 1 run, OUT, Ramdin is gone after an almighty heave, the ball was in the air for ages but somehow landed short of long-on, Ramdin turned for the second but was sent back, he lost his footing and is lying prone as the throw comes through, run-out, end of a terrific innings from Ramdin

D Ramdin run out 59 (61m 40b 6x4 1x6) SR: 147.50

Trinidad & Tobago 122/6   KK Cooper 4* (4b)   AU Rashid 2.5-0-23-1


Sidebottom to Cooper, OUT, the Cooper show is over, he looks to whack a length ball over sweeper cover for six, can't get enough power, and the fielder lies in wait for that, Sidebottom 3.1-0-5-2

KK Cooper c Lyth b Sidebottom 15 (17m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

Trinidad & Tobago 140/7   R Rampaul 6* (3b 1x6)   RJ Sidebottom 3.1-0-5-2


Sidebottom to Rampaul, OUT, Sidebottom demolishes the stumps there, a full ball into the middle and off stump, Rampaul makes a bit of room there, looks to guide the ball to the off side, he misses, Sidebottom hits, he is on a hat-trick now

R Rampaul b Sidebottom 6 (8m 4b 0x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

Trinidad & Tobago 140/8   KYG Ottley 0* (0b)   RJ Sidebottom 3.2-0-5-3


Sidebottom to Ottley, 1 run, OUT, full again, slammed towards sweeper cover, immediately the keeper shouts 'keeper, keeper,' to let the fielder know which end to throw as the batsmen look for a tight second, the throw bounces awkwardly but Dodgson collects and breaks the stumps in time, T&T finish on 148, a great comeback after that top-order failure

KYG Ottley run out 5 (5m 2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 250.00

Trinidad & Tobago 148/9   RR Emrit 3* (2b)   RJ Sidebottom 4-0-13-3
