Trinbago Knight Riders cruised into the final with yet another convincing victory and extended their winning streak to 11 in this process. Akeal Hosein took 3/14 with the new ball to leave the Jamaica Tallawahs at 28/4 by end of the powerplay. Nkrumah Bonner (41) and Rovman Powell (33) scored runs but it came at a strike rate below 100 as Tallawahs crawled to 107/7. Lendl Simmons (54*) and Tion Webster (44*) helped the Knight Riders to chase the target with five overs to spare.
Here are all the statistical highlights from Trinbago’s comfortable 9-wicket victory over the Tallawahs:
Trinbago’s winning streaks:
11 – Trinbago Knight Riders now have won each of their last 11 matches in the Caribbean Premier League. This is now the joint-longest winning spree for any team in the history of CPL. TKR equalled Guyana Amazon Warriors’ 11-match winning streak during the 2019 edition.

Mujeeb’s record season with the ball:

Sandeep’s first wicketless game:
9 – Sandeep Lamichhane went wicketless for the first time in this CPL. He picked up at least one wicket in all the nine innings where he bowled during the league phase. Only Oshane Thomas (10 in 2018) and Kesrick Williams (9 in 2017) have picked up a wicket in nine or more matches during a CPL edition for Jamaica Tallawahs.
Narine increases his domination in maidens:
24 – Sunil Narine now has bowled 24 maiden overs in the Twenty20 format; three more than the next best Samuel Badree (21). 12 of those 24 maidens came during the CPL where no player bowled more than eight such overs.

(Min: 20 balls) Sunil Ambris had a strike rate of 57.69 when he remained not out scoring 15 off 26 balls for St Lucia Zouks against Guyana Amazon Warriors in 2017.
A rare promotion for Mujeeb:
