    A splendid bowling performance from Akeal Hosein and the Trinbago Knight Riders has taken TKR to the CPL final.

    Hosein’s 3 wickets helped restricted Jamaica to 107/7 as he was supported by Khary Pierre (2/29) and a wicket each for Sunil Narine and Fawad Ahmed.

    There was contention surrounding Andre Russell’s dismissal as he was deemed to be caught at slip, though replays seemed to show the ball not hitting the bat with the deflection coming from the pad instead.

    Then, Lendl Simmons made 52 from 44 balls and Tion Webster added 44 from 43 deliveries to take TKR to their target despite the early loss of Narine for 4.

    Trinbago will face either Guyana Amazon Warriors or St Lucia Zouks in the final – both of these teams will square off at 5:30pm today, September 8th 2020, to determine the 2nd finalist.
