CPL 2021 – TKR beat JT: Lendl Simmons’ fiery 70 guides Trinbago Knight Riders to 7 wickets win against Jamaica Tallawahs

CPL 2021 – TKR beat JT:- A sensational batting performance from TKR batsman Lendl Simmons has helped Trinbago Knight Riders defeat Jamaica Tallawahs. He smashed 70 runs off 45 balls that comprised 5 sixes and an equal number of fours. As a result, TKR chased down the target with 2.5 overs to spare. Imad Wasim was the pick of the bowlers for Jamaica Tallawahs.

Earlier, Jamaica Tallawahs managed a meagre total of just 144/7 in their allotted 20 overs against the defending champions. The top-order suffered a huge collapse as they were reeling 15/5 in 5.5 overs at one stage. But Carlos Braithwaite and Andre Russell rescued the team with a late blitz to guide JT to 144/7 in stipulated 20 overs. Akeal Hossain and Ravi Rampaul continued to stamp their mark in the tournament with a couple of wickets each.

“It was a better pitch today. My catching has been good so far. It was a good game, pitch played pretty well and catching gave me confidence with the bat. The first five games the pitch was a bit difficult, but this was better for batting and we saw guys scoring hundreds. I have not lived up to my reputation in the last five games but have come to the party now. We know partnerships come in cricket and we would have taken 144 at the start of the day. We will pick up momentum when the time is right,” Simmons said post-match.
