Jamaica Tallawahs 2, Trinbago Knight Riders 0

Commentator: Thilak Ram

Tarang: "I'm in USA and feeling the Gayle Storm..."

Riad: "Apart from narine 4 overs , TKR gave 183 from 14.2 overs .you can defend a total of 191 when one of your bowler just conceded 9 runs from 4 overs .but can lose the match when 71 runs conceded in a span of 3 overs "

koti reddy: "T&T have to blame themselves for doing the same mistake of making Akmal keeping they have to bring in one of the two genuine keepers in their squad Perkins and Tariq"

What fire-power we witnessed today. It was the big man from Jamaica who stole the show smacking 108 of 54. Early on - the top order from Trinbago Knight Riders gave a hard task for the JT's and piled up a match winning 191. It was Amla and Muro again. Dale Steyn wasn't at his best too. Chasing 191, JT's have trounced the Knight Riders. It was Gayle's show all the way. The big Caribbean scored his third CPL century and eighteenth over all. Knight Riders have themselves to blame, had their chances all the way.. gave Chris a couple of chances and let their team down. Benn was taken to the cleaners from Chris. Sunil Narine was the only bowler who troubled the Jamaicans. Chris and co., played him intelligently and saw him off. Unsurprisingly Chris Gayle has been named Man of the match for his flamboyant innings.

chris: "I just went to get an umbrella to shelter from the Gayle storm only to find the game is already over!"

Beaton to Powell, SIX runs, shot of the day so far for me.. Low full toss on off, he clears his front leg and clubs it through the line... over long on and a massive victory for Jamaica Tallawahs
Beaton to Powell, FOUR runs, fuller on leg stump.. from round the stumps. Powells picks it up and sends it soaring towards mid-wicket.. one bounce and over the rope. JT have mauled the Riders by 7 wickets

18 | 5 Runs | JT: 182/3 (10 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 10.11, RRR: 5.00)

Suli: "Cricinfo says 18 overs r complete, while the tv says the innigs is over! Whats happening?" - We are always correct if not we correct ourselves..

Cooper to Powell, 1 run, length ball on off stump and nudged down the ground
Cooper to Powell, 1 wide, erred down the leg and called wide

storm: "Even down under in New Zealand we feel that Gayle storm"

Cooper to Powell, no run, slower ball on off and beats him.. Nope..! He had nicked this one and on the bounce to the keeper. Akmal fumbles..!
Cooper to Gayle, 1 leg bye, fired down the leg and thuds on his pad as he was looking clip that away
