CPL: Narine, Tion Webster Spoil Chris Gayle's Homecoming


Trinbago Knight Riders 191/4 (Webster 66*, Narine 46, Pollard 33*, Jacobs 1-14) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 169/6 (Worker 46*, Russell 44, Narine 2-23, Neesham 2-27) by 22 runs

An all-round show by Sunil Narine and Tion Webster's maiden T20 half-century spoiled Chris Gayle's homecoming as Trinbago Knight Riders beat Jamaica Tallawahs by 22 runs for their second straight win.

After being asked to bat, Webster's unbeaten 66 off 49 balls helped Knight Riders to 191 for 4. While Webster played the anchor's role, Narine smashed 46 off 22 and Kieron Pollard contributed 33 not out off 21 towards the end to take Knight Riders to a formidable total.

In response, Tallawahs could never get going as the Knight Riders spinners made run-scoring difficult from the very beginning. Narine, Khary Pierre and Seekkuge Prasanna bowled ten overs combined, conceding only 61 and sharing three wickets among them.

When Andre Russell made his way to the middle, Tallawahs needed 99 from 42 balls. Despite not looking at his best, Russell struck four fours and as many sixes in his 24-ball 44 but even for him, it proved too much in the end.
