Brief Scores

Trinbago Knight Riders 184/6 (Munro 67, DM Bravo 50, DJ Bravo 36, Imad Wasim 2/17)

Jamaica Tallawahs 182/5 (Phillips 80, Miller 72*, Pierre 2/19)

Darren Bravo, the hero of the victory over St Lucia Stars on Thursday, was to the fore again, striking five more Hero Maximums in a 35-ball 50 as he shared a century stand with Colin Munro, who filled the Phillips role with an expertly-paced 67 from 51 before being bowled round his legs by Russell.

Skipper Dwayne Bravo provided the crucial shot of impetus the Knight Riders needed with three successive sixes off Krishmar Santokie in the 18th over and five in all in a blistering 11-ball stay at the crease.
