3 days, 3 double headers. All teams have played 2 matches each. Trinbago Knight Riders jump to the top of the points table. We deservedly need a break but shall be back in a day. The action resumes on Saturday, 22nd August, 2020 from 10 am local (1400 GMT) as the Patriots take on the Zouks, followed by the Warriors-Tallawahs clash. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Kieron Pollard is mighty pleased. Is happy with the way the opening bowlers set the tone and then the spinners following it up. Praises his bowlers for restricting the Tallawahs to 135. On Jayden Seales, Pollard says that he is young and they are trying to protect him. Stresses that he did not want to give him the death overs but just gave here to check how he does in pressure situations. Further says that he was not to be given the new ball either but seeing Ali Khan swing the ball, Polly thought to try Seales out. On Sunil Narine's innings, KP is proud of the way he continues to be important for the side but stresses on Munro's knock as well, not throwing his wicket and sticking till the end to complete the job.

Jamaica Tallawahs skipper, Rovman Powell, feels that losing early wickets while batting has been their problem of low scores. Wants his side to arrest that. Says that the wicket was a bit sticky. On a possible injury to Andre Russell, Powell says that he is fine. Rues the fielding and catching lapses but insists that the self-belief is still there.

Awaiting the captains now...

SUNIL NARINE HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. On being asked about finding form immediately after lockdown, Narine says that this is just the start of the tournament. So he wants to build on this and try and do well for long. On being asked about possible revival memories of the 2018 season, Narine hopes it turns out to be that way. Admits that they are missing the fans and it is they who drive the players.

Earlier, in the first innings, a disciplined bowling performance from the Trinbago Knight Riders kept the Tallawahs to a modest 135. Only Glenn Phillips played an innings of substance. Surprisingly, in a game hit by wet ball, wet ground and dew, the spinners made merry. Narine, Fawad, Mujeeb and Lamichhane had combined figures of 15-1-80-4 across both innings.

The Tallawahs were in the game for just the 4 overs. There were a couple of chances put down but don't think they would have mattered. Questions to Rovman Powell on the decision to give Ramaal Lewis the 5th over, which changed the momentum. Edwards and Mujeeb were exemplary.

The start was good by the Tallawahs though. Fidel Edwards found some swing and kept the Knight Riders quiet. Lendl Simmons departed as well but after that, it was the Sunil Narine show. His 53 from 38 balls allowed Munro to bide his time and find his feet, in a stand of 75. The Kiwi then took over later on, opening his shoulders, staying unbeaten on 49.

A one-sided game. In a ground hit by rain, you could possibly imagine Kieron Pollard winning the game at the toss itself. With the dew settling in, it became almost impossible for the bowlers to do well in the night.
