That's it for this game but stay tuned as Sportskeeda has more live action lined up in just a bit. For us however, that's it for the night. Thank you for joining us! This is Ulhas, wishing everyone a good night, along with fellow commy, Bala. Ta-ta!

21:14 IST:-  Earlier, The Clove Challengers came out with one goal in mind. Attack. It worked initially as they clobbered 32 runs from the first 2 overs. But the third over of Kenroy Peters brought about a momentum shift. He picked up both the openers in the space of 3 balls. Denroy Charles conceded a tame catch while Darron Nedd, who was looking good, played one shot too many and was dismissed for 28(10).

Another wicket in the next over meant the pendulum swung Cinnamon Pacers way. Teddy Bishop, in the company of Casimir Thomas rebuilt the innings with a 40 run partnership before the former was out caught off Micah Narine. A couple more wickets fell, and Clove Challengers eventually finished on 94/6 in 9 overs, before rain intervened and ended the innings abruptly.

Micah Narine was the pick of the bowlers, with astounding figures of 3/9 in 2 overs. He was well supported by Kenroy Peters, who picked up a couple of wickets and conceded 18 runs. Reuel Williams had an off-day in the bowling department, as he was picked apart by Charles and Nedd in the first over.

Persistent rain forced the game to get shortened and Cinnamon Pacers were set a revised target of 61 in 5 overs. It wasn't going to be an easy task. And the start couldn't have been worse. Pacers lost both their in-form openers in the first over which sent the innings for a toss. The batsmen who followed didn't really have a choice but to go for broke. 

As a result, wickets kept falling at regular intervals. The bowlers deserve a lot of praise however. They came out with a plan to bring out a lot of variations in their deliveries. A ton of short balls, yorkers and slower balls were bowled. The Pacers' batsmen weren't able to pick it up and ended up losing the game by a whopping 21 runs.

Good way to finish but they end up nowhere near the total. Clove Challengers defeat Cinnamon Pacers by 21 runs!

4.6 Jeron Noel to Chard Charles, SIX to finish things off, but it won't matter! Short delivery from Noel, Charles rocks back and pulls it over the mid-wicket fence. Challengers have completed a comprehensive victory with that!
 Javed Hazzard walks in at the non-striker's end...

4.6 Jeron Noel to Chard Charles, length delivery wide of the off-stump. It looked tight but the umpire signals a wide
4.5 Jeron Noel to Javel St. Paul, OUT! Flighted delivery outside off, Paul goes for the big one over long-on but gets a leading edge. The ball goes in the air straight to short thirdman and the fielder grabs the swirling ball well
4.5 Jeron Noel to Javel St. Paul, drags it down, angling it way past the tramline. Has to reload this one
4.4 Jeron Noel to Chard Charles, length ball wide of the off-stump, slaps it down the ground to long-on
4.3 Jeron Noel to Chard Charles, full outside the off-stump, slices it over point. The fielder tries to reach out but the ball barely evades him 
That should be the game, granted there are no no-balls.

4.2 Jeron Noel to Javel St. Paul, full ball on the off-stump, toe ends the drive to mid-wicket for a single
4.1 Jeron Noel to Javel St. Paul, tossed up wide of the off-stump flirting with the tramline, the batsman shoulders arms
Just four runs in the over. Pacers need a boundary off every ball from here on...

Jeron Noel to finish the innings...

3.6 Imran Joseph to Chard Charles, well-directed bouncer this time from Joseph, too good for the batsman to get any bat on it
3.6 Imran Joseph to Chard Charles, sharp bouncer from Joseph. Charles goes for the hook but he is far too late on it. The umpire reckons it has gone over the head of the batsman
Uhh weird celebrations from the bowler. He goes down on all fours, walks like a dog towards the stumps, and lifts his legs to do the deed! Comical.


3.5 Imran Joseph to Kyron Andrew, OUT! Joseph gets his man. Slower ball on a good length. Andrew is far too early into the slog. Probably gets an inside edge there and the ball rattles onto the off-stump
