and Lewis hits the winning runs, Patriots are in the final! Gets a full delivery and whips it to the wide long-on boundary to beat the fielder in the deep
7.14pm That's all we have from the second semi-final. We will have the final coverage starting for you in just over 12 hours, don't forget to tune in for that because we are going to have a new CPL champion. Until then it's goodbye and good luck from me, Vishal Dikshit, Peter Della Penna, and Binoy George. Stay safe wherever you are.
Bravo: The plan was simple, we had to try and out-think them. It's a pressure game. We have a lot of experience in our dressing room. We wanted to put them under pressure, and we wanted to chase. At half time we were happy and comfortable in the dressing room. Lewis showed his class and so did Chris. Apart from one or two overs, it went well. I just tried to keep my composure and support my team. At half time they thought they had momentum but we knew we could chase this down. When I made a move (to this team), I wanted to challenge myself differently and build a team. I wanted to make a team that could compete and win the trophy. So I'm very happy and proud of the team. I got the challenge I wanted. There's a lot of talks and banter between the teams already (laughs), it's going to be a tough final.
Pooran: Tough loss. I think experience won today and our young bowlers have a lot to take from this. I hope they come back stronger next year. We were happy with anything over 160 but today wasn't our day and we paid the price for it. A lot of youngsters put their hands up and showed what they can do. There's some inexperience so I hope they learn and come back stronger.
Evin Lewis is the Player of the Match: I am hungry to do good. I wanted rest because I had a few niggles and I wanted to come back stronger. Gayle can go after it, I can go after it, we can go after it together. When Gayle was going after it, made it easy for me. Bravo keeps it simple as captain and he wanted me to bat deep today, and that's what I did.
6.58pm Evin Lewis is pupped, he thumps his chest with passion, Pooran applauds close by and the two batters go across for a hug. So we have the final line-up: it's going to be St Lucia Kings vs St Kitts and Nevis Patriots tomorrow morning, which confirms once again that we are going to have a new CPL champion. Patriots would not have been too happy with themselves while bowling in the end overs, and Warriors got to a challenging total. From thereon, Patriots didn't give Warriors even a sniff. A rapid fifty opening stand after Gayle's onslaught, and then Lewis took over to treat the bowling with such disdain with his meaty blows. What a way to come back for him. He finishes the match and is the Player of the Match.
drills that full ball back and this time it deflects off the umpire's foot for one
the keeper is pretty sure there's an edge even as Rutherford swings and misses outside off. Nobody else is appealing with him
slams it back to the bowler with a lot of muscle, and Hemraj puts his hands in front to catch it but withdraws that and still gets hit. One off the deflection
Will Lewis hit the winning runs?
length ball outside off, he slaps it back fiercely to long-off
Just a matter of time now. Five away, and here comes Hemraj for the first time today
gets it in the block hole, and Rutherford digs it out towards long-on for one. Midwicket ran across to his right to stop it but couldn't collect cleanly
Just one more shot away now from the final berth
clobbered! Short ball on leg and Rutherford absolutely smokes that with utter disdain, not even looking at where the ball went. Cracking six
dangerous ball, it was a waist-high full toss if not higher, that's been dropped at long leg, and there's a collision as well near the pitch. The umpire checks for the height, and the ball is exactly at waist height after it dipped. The fielder in the deep doesn't do it very accurately and Bramble collides a little with Rutherford while chasing the ball
short ball, he goes for a pull, and misses it completely
Pooran is standing at short square leg
rising from back of length around leg stump, he stays back and defends close to the pitch
pretty wide outside the off stump, Lewis reaches out and drives into the covers
he ends with a bouncer as well, Rutherford hooks but can't get it away
Last ball of Smith's spell. Slip in place
pulled straight to leg gully, Smith gets one more! Short ball again, as expected, and it might be the angle Smith is creating that troubled Allen. He got into an awkward position to pull and handed it straight to Hetmyer
he gets the short ball first up and ducks under it
Fabian Allen gets to bat. 15 needed off 27, Smith around the wicket with a leg gully. Expect the short ball
uproots middle and leg stumps! Bravo was way outside off for the last few balls, and Smith, from around the wicket, just aimed for the stumps. Bravo swung big and missed it completely
he's standing way outside leg, Smith comes around the wicket and bangs in a short ball, and Bravo has pulled that away in style
he tries the block hole, doesn't get it accurately, and Bravo gets two after swinging hard on the leg side
Around the wicket
he's bowled a few sides today but this one is the worst of the lot! Way too much down the leg side and even over the batter's head height. So it's called a no ball, free hit coming up
Less than run a ball now. Need 28 off 30. Last over for Smith
driven on the up, inside out, and that's a flat six over the covers! Right in Lewis' slot outside off, pretty full, and all he has to do is muscle that over the covers with a big swing
attempted yorker is a low full toss on the pads, Bravo flicks it away for one
