Match abandoned Jamaica Tallawahs 116 for 2 (Gayle 47*) in 10 overs v Barbados Tridents
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
Rain abandoned the 12th match of the CPL, between Jamaica Tallawahs and Barbados Tridents, and spoilt Chris Gayle's plans of registering another destructive half-century in the tournament. Rain first delayed the start of the match to reduce it to 12 overs a side, and then returned after 10 overs of Tallawahs' innings to not allow any more play.
Tallawahs were put in to bat after a delay of more than two hours and openers Chadwick Walton and Gayle attacked from the outset. Walton collected boundaries against Wayne Parnell before Gayle's six off Ravi Rampaul in the fourth over increased the run rate further.
The stand was broken when Shoaib Malik, brought on in the sixth over, had Walton caught at long-off for 25. Sangakkara then laid into Malik in the eighth over to collect 16 runs with the help of two fours and a six. Gayle raised the bar further by smothering three sixes in the next over, off David Wiese, to cross the team's 100 in the ninth over.
But Rampaul soon uprooted Sangakkara's off stump when the batsman made room. Heavy rain interrupted with Tallawahs on 116 for 2, with Gayle on 47 off 20.
