Trinbago Knight Riders 184 for 6 (Munro 67, Darren Bravo 50, Imad 2-17) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 182 for 5 (Phillips 80, Miller 72*, Pierre 2-19) by four wickets

The Lauderhill House of Horrors continued for the Jamaica Tallawahs for a second straight night as Colin Munro teamed with both Bravos in a pair of major stands to lift the Trinbago Knight Riders to a last-ball four-wicket win at the Central Broward Regional Park. It’s the Tallawahs’ fifth loss in six matches at the Florida venue since 2016.

The Tallawahs gave themselves a chance thanks to a 112-run stand between Glenn Phillips and David Miller to resuscitate the first innings after they were floundering midway through at 58 for 3. Half-centuries from both batsmen helped the Tallawahs add 124 off the final 10 overs to end with 182.

But it still wasn’t enough as Munro and Darren Bravo responded in kind with a century partnership and matching half-centuries of their own.

With three needed to win off the final ball, Javon Searles walloped a length ball from Oshane Thomas over extra cover with enough mustard on it to beat Kennar Lewis sweeping on the boundary for the winning runs. (cricinfo)
