Champions League Twenty20 - Final

New South Wales v Trinidad & Tobago

New South Wales won by 41 runs

8.00 T&T are taking the field. Some fans swaying in the stands. Out strut Phillip Hughes and David Warner. There's Adam Gilchrist, suited up, standing on the balcony. This is the final, folks. It's showtime. And starting off will be Sherwin Ganga, the offspiner. The plan is to take pace off the ball.

7.55 Teams lined up for the tournament anthem and to swap flags again. T&T have their huddle.

7.40 One of the main men behind the tournament believes it is not going to inspire players to go freelance, as has been claimed. Read his interview with Cricinfo.

Today in Page 2: Anand Ramachandran has the inside story on the latest wave of scandals to hit Pakistan.

"I think the T&T decision to field is a bad one," says Nish on email. "They're playing right into NSW's hands."

"NSW will need 200 to win, and even that might not be enough," says Adrian Meredith from Australia.

7.30 Its toss time. Daren Ganga spins, heads is the call and its a tails, so Ganga elects to field. "A very good track and we're going to try and chase whatever these guys put up," he says. "I told the boys to relax and take it as the sixth final. Each game has been a final for us." T&T have an unchanged side.

Simon Katich says - no surprises - that we would have batted. NSW are also unchanged.

"The T&T High Commission has organised for a 10-plus member band playing Calypsonian and Caribbean steel music," says Cricinfo's Nagraj Gollapudi from the venue. "But it remains to be seen if they would be allowed entry in to the ground. Expect a good crowd for a non-Indian game."

7.15 Hello and welcome to the final of the Champions League Twenty20 in Hyderabad. The tournament will come to a close with one of New South Wales or Trinidad & Tobago lifting the US$6million trophy.

I'm Jamie Alter, your commentator for the evening, with Raghav and Sanjay on scoring.

Local enthusiasm toward the competition was dampened significantly by the capitulation of the IPL teams - none of which progressed beyond the second round - and there were hardly any spectators in Delhi for the first semi-final. The turnout was more impressive in Hyderabad last night, when T&T knocked out the Cobras, and the organisers will hope for more fans tonight. Both sides are strong - NSW can still field almost an entire XI that has played for Australia - while T&T have stormed into the final without losing a game. If they can beat NSW a second time they can truly claim to be champions. It'll be some carnival if T&T win, with fans back in the Caribbean ready to break out the chutney singing and calypso music.

In recent developments, T&T's progress to the finals has created an unusual dilemma for the national cricket board (TTCB), which is struggling to send its players back home in time for the WICB President's Cup that gets underway on October 28. Click here to know more.

There are 15 minutes to go for the toss. Let me remind you to join Cricinfo's associate editor Dileep Premachandran and Inbox contributor Brendan Layton for the pre-match discussion here. Send your questions for them in to chatterbox@cricinfo.com.

DA Warner    19* (14b 4x4)      R Rampaul    1-0-6-0

3.1

Rampaul to Hughes, OUT, cleaned up! Terrible shot across the line, a real ugly shot to one that just isn't short enough to pull and pays the price, backing away to expose everything and middle and leg are gone

4.2

Bravo to Katich, 1 run, short of a length, up goes Katich to tap the ball in front of square

4.3

Bravo to Warner, OUT, good catch by Mohammed at backward point! Warner gets a leading edge, trying to turn one off leg stump to the on side but is done for bounce and gets squared up, the ball flies to Mohammed's right and he takes a good diving catch

DA Warner c Mohammed b Bravo 19 (16b 4x4 0x6) SR: 118.75

Good catch that was. Moved fast and took it sharply. Mohammed lies there and kisses the ball as his team-mates pile on him. Here's Moises Henriques on strike.

4.4

Bravo to Henriques, 1 run, short and wide and he steers it to third man for a single

4.5

Bravo to Katich, SIX, six more in the over! Bad ball, short and down leg stump and Katich just swings it with good wristwork over deep fine leg for maximum

4.6

Bravo to Katich, 1 leg bye, short outside leg again, this time its off the pads for a leg bye

Well, Warner is gone but Bravo needs to tighten up his line. Length balls are not on.

SM Katich    14* (8b 2x6)      DJ Bravo    1-0-14-1

Ganga makes another change and calls back his brother.

5.1

6.3

Bravo to Henriques, 1 run, oh what has Bravo done? Henriques turns the ball to midwicket, Ganga dives and stops and lets the ball to well to Bravo, so that he can effect the run out, but he is standing down the track and reacts late to collect and misses the stumps as the batsmen is struggling

What a let-off. Bravo should have been running back to the stumps. Ganga didn't go for a direct hit as he was on his backside and did well to return a nice throw.

6.4

Bravo to Katich, no run, gets back and works the ball straight to the fielder

6.5

Bravo to Katich, OUT, soft dismissal there, Katich gets back and just chips the ball to mid-off

SM Katich c Barath b Bravo 16 (14b 0x4 2x6) SR: 114.28

Very tame one. Katich just pushed the ball in the air. Bravo gets another one but remains to be seen how much that Henriques reprieve costs.

6.6

Bravo to Rohrer, 1 run, pitches it up on the stumps and he works it away to midwicket for one

Ashish: "Now the real test for NSW. Anything below 190 on this track will ensure trumpets for T&T."

MC Henriques c S Ganga b Pollard 4 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Two loose shots gift wickets away. Katich tried to biff a length ball and Henriques took on a short one. T&T's seamers are doing the trick here.

8.4

Bravo to Rohrer, 1 run, moves back to leg and pushes the ball to cover, where Barath misfields and allows a needless single

8.5

Bravo to SPD Smith, 1 leg bye, slower ball, cuts back in sharply from outside off, Smith is late on the attempted nudge and gets hit on the thigh, Bravo appeals but that is just too high

8.6

Bravo to Rohrer, no run, full outside off, Rohrer plays a loose flash and gets beaten

Bravo should just cut out the short balls. He's conceded three sixes. NSW are struggling.

BJ Rohrer    11* (8b 1x6)      DJ Bravo    3-0-27-2

Shamshir Hussain: "Time for the introduction of the spinner to put further pressure on NSW. Why Mohammed is not coming yet?"

End of over 10 (14 runs) New South Wales 75/4 (RR: 7.50)
SPD Smith    11* (7b 2x4)      KA Pollard    2-0-18-1
BJ Rohrer    16* (11b 1x4 1x6)      DJ Bravo    3-0-27-2

Well, here he is then. Dave Mohammed.

10.1

Mohammed to Rohrer, OUT, and first ball he strikes! What do you know! Bad ball, short and there to be taken on but Rohrer loses a hand off the bat and pulls it over the infield out to Ganga in the deep, and immediately Mohammed lies down and does his alligator role and ends with a namaskar pose, what an entertainer he is!

BJ Rohrer c S Ganga b Mohammed 16 (12b 1x4 1x6) SR: 133.33

Rampaul returns ...

11.1

Rampaul to DLR Smith, 2 runs, straight ball on the stumps, Smith hops back and plays it well into the gap at midwicket, using his wrists, and runs well with his namesake

11.2

Rampaul to DLR Smith, OUT, bowled em! Good ball, fuller in length, cuts back in off the seam, Smith looks to chop it down to third man but is late on the stroke and the ball nips back off stump

DLR Smith b Rampaul 3 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Everything is going T&T's way. What a fun team to watch. Rampaul was called back for this precise job and he does it swiftly. That ball just jagged back in sharply. Here's Lee. A slip comes in.

18.1

Pollard to Hauritz, 1 run, pitches it up and Hauritz drives uppishly toward extra cover

Pete: "Given NSW have been on course for 140+ the entire innings, which is very defendable with their attack, why is there so much writing off of NSW? Not saying T&T can't chase this, but they've never been on top."

18.2

Pollard to Lee, 1 run, full and straight, Lee carves it toward extra cover as well

Rampaul to Hauritz, 1 run, better ball, aimed at off stump, Hauritz slashes to third man

19.5

Rampaul to Lee, OUT, good use of the short ball to bring Lee to his knees, he ducks away and takes his eyes off it, Ramdin collects and throws back to Rampaul in a flash, Hauritz it on the lookout for a go but Lee doesn't move and the bowler does the rest

NM Hauritz run out 10 (6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

19.6

Rampaul to Lee, OUT, two in two and thats the end of Lee! Rampaul goes full with the angle, doesn't exactly land it right but Lee slashes it out to Perkins at deep cover, who juggles it

B Lee c Perkins b Rampaul 48 (31b 1x4 5x6) SR: 154.83

Thats the over T&T wanted. Lee goes for a fighting 48. How crucial will that be? Join us soon to find out.
