CPL 2020: Trinbago Knight Riders Maintain Winning Run, Defending Champs Barbados Tridents Slump to Big Defeat

Trinbago Knight Riders made sure that they won their second consecutive game of CPL 2020 with a seven-wicket win over Jamaica Tallawahs in Match 6 on Thursday. Tallawahs batted first and were restricted to 135/8 in their allotted 20 overs. Opener Glenn Phillips scored 58 off 42 balls, apart from him, Andre Russell came up with an uncharacteristic 26-ball 25 and it reflected on the scorecard.

In the chase, Knights were powered by Sunil Narine and Colin Munro's brilliant batting displays. Tallawahs were fancying their chances when the Knights were reduced to 0/1 but a solid stand between Narine (53) and Munro (49) made sure Tallawahs didn't make any further inroads.

Brief Scores: Trinbago Knight Riders 136/3 (Narine 53, Munro 49*, DM Bravo 14; Mujeeb 1/13, Edwards 1/19, Lamichhane 1/30) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 135/8 (Phillips 58, Russell 25, Asif 22; Seales 2/21, Ali Khan 2/25, Fawad 1/18, Narine 1/19) by 7 wickets

Easy win for Zouks in a rain-curtailed game

In a rain-affected game, St. Lucia Zouks defeated defending champions Barbados Tridents by seven wickets. It was an easy win for Darren Sammy's men after a revised target of 47 was set due to rain. The side comfortably chased that down in 4.1 overs thanks to an unbeaten 16 from Andre Fletcher. He was ably supported by Afghanistan's star all-rounder Mohammad Nabi who scored 15 runs in just six balls. Earlier Barbados had posted 131/7 when the rain arrived. Opening batter Johnson Charles top-scored with 35 off 19 balls while skipper Jason Holder scored 27.
