That's it from me and Danyal Rasool today. Come back tomorrow at 10 am local time for the last doubleheader of the regular season stage of CPL 2020. I'm Peter Della Penna, take care!

6.05 pm Well the Tallawahs now have their playoff fate sealed. Regardless of the outcome of tomorrow's match against the Zouks, the Tallawahs will be locked into the #4 seed paired in the semi-finals against the undefeated home juggernaut of Trinbago Knight Riders. Poor Shayan Jahangir gets a TFC (Thanks for coming) next to his name on the scorecard on his CPL debut for the Tridents having been padded up listed originally to come in at No. 4. But Santner delivered the kind of innings he has all season, showing why he really should have been bumped up the order earlier in the season. If he had, he might have arrested some of the sharp collapses the Tridents experienced in the middle order.

Brathwaite to Santner, SIX runs

length ball, hammered high and deep over wide long-on. Santner gets another red inker next to his name in CPL 2020 as he clinches the highest successful chase by any team in the tournament. Not bad for a group that had three consecutive scores failing to pass 100.

Brathwaite to Santner, FOUR runs

attempted wide yorker, Santner shuffles back and across to get in line and behind the ball deep enough to get under it to drive over the umpire's head, super shot bounces to the rope.

Brathwaite to Santner, 1 wide

full and very wide, too wide off the pitch. Bonus ball. 14 extras for the Tallawahs in the innings including 9 wides.
