Being asked to bat first, Jamaica set a target of 207 runs with the help of Rovman Powell’s devastating unbeaten innings of 84 runs off just 40 balls. Alongside him, Glenn Philips scored 40 and David Miller added vital 32 runs in just 20 balls.

Despite losing two important wickets of John Charles and Kennar Lewis within the seventh over of the match, Powell and Phillips added 39 runs in the third wicket stand and removed the pressure which was created by the opponent bowlers at the beginning of the match.

After Phillip’s dismissal, Powell and Miller took the responsibility of their teams and by adding 79-run partnership, they set the stage of a high score for their side. Miller got out after scoring 20-ball 32 runs but Powell remains till the end of the innings. He scored 40-ball 80-run with 4 sixes and 11 fours to put a total of 206 runs for 6 wickets at the end of 20 overs.

After Jamaica’s run-fest innings, rain interrupted the match. As a result, the match officials decided to cut 9 overs and revised the target to 118 runs.

Chasing a target of 118 runs off 11 overs, St Kitts lost their first wicket on 18 runs as Evin Lewis went for a golden duck. Then, Gayle started to play an attacking role. He added 41 runs off just 24 balls with 4 fours and 2 sixes. Afterward, he was removed by Thomas. In the very first ball after skipper’s dismissal, Ben Cutting was also trapped by Zampa and bowled for a golden duck. Hence, the home side lost their third wicket on 71 runs.

Then, Mahmudullah Riyad joined in the middle with Van der Dussen and started to play furious cricket. Alongside Van der Dussen’s devastating batting, he played a marvelous inning of 28 runs off 11 deliveries with 2 fours and sixes and helped his team to seal the victory. Van der Dussen adjudged player of the match for his 45 runs which came in just 24 balls.

Watch Mahmudullah Riyad’s 2 sixes against Jamaica Tallawahs-

Rovman Powell to Mahmudullah. Full toss, outside off stump down the track driving, in the air under control to deep point for 2 runs, fielded by Charles. A game scuppered by rain, but St Kitts and Nevis are able to get over the line and secure the win that gets them a guaranteed playoff place. Some excellent hitting from Chris Gayle, Mahmudullah, and Rassie van Der Dussen. Big hitting, and great action from tonight's game. That win means the Tridents and Stars will not be progressing as well.

He was charging in from the long off fence, dives forward and gets two hands to it, but cannot cling on.Just as that happens, the heavens open, and the players will go off the field. We have already lost an hour of play, so overs will start to go straight away. Currently the Patriots are ahead on DLS method.

Sheldon Cottrell to Steven Taylor. Yorker, outside off stump moves in front driving, inside edge to short leg for 1 run, fielded by Cottrell. This will take some chasing. Not a great bowling or fielding effort from the Patriots. Phillips, Powell, and Miller were on form, and destroyed the host's bowling attack. A good pitch with smallish boundaries gives St Kitts and Nevis hope, but Jamaica are in the ascendancy at the halfway mark.

Start of Jamaica Tallawahs Innings. Welcome to Match 25 of the CPL. A wet outfield has delayed things slightly, but St Kitts and Nevis have won the toss and elected to field first. The Tallawahs have already qualified for the next stage, but it is all to play for for the Patriots. One more win from either of their last two games will also get them through, and dump out the Stars and Tridents too. Whatever the result, though, we should be in for a great evening of entertainment.

OUT! Bowled. Oshane Thomas to Evin Lewis. In-swinging yorker, off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to. What a start from Thomas. A big inducking yorker to Lewis, who was flummoxed by the pace and swing. Hung the bat out in hope, and got a thin edge back into off stump. The early wicket that Jamaica wanted!
