That's all we've got for you from this match as I, Sudheer and my partner, Abhishek are signing off for the time being but do stay tuned to Sportskeeda as the 2nd semifinal of the tournament is coming your way in a short while. Cheers and have fun!
Saffron Strikers are beaten comprehensively as the Nutmeg Warriors have won the encounter against the Strikers when it mattered the most as this win puts them into the finals of this Spice Isle T20 Tournament. 

Saffron Strikers batsmen were under pressure right from the word go into the 2nd innings as the target was above par and needed an innings of high quality striking from their batsmen. They struggled to keep pace with the required rate and lost wickets at regular intervals. St Nickozi Hillaire crawled his way to 31 runs from 26 balls while Ryan John scored a brisk 36 from 19 balls. Those weren't enough for them to cross the line as other batsmen failed to make a mark leaving them lose the match by 28 runs in this all important semi final of this tournament.

Nutmeg Warriors came out with confidence riding high as the final flourish to their batting gave them the much needed momentum. Haston Jackson bowled well in the first few overs to push the required rate. Darel Cyrus and Andre Fletcher bowled the crucial final few overs against the settled pair but executed their task well to contain them against going for big hits. Darel Cyrus picked two wickets while Sheldon Joseph and Haston Jackson picked one each in their spell.

Now the Warriors are into finals and they will be high on confidence as they beat the table toppers and will be raring to go to lift the big trophy.
Couple of big strikes in the final over but that doesn't help the Strikers as they fall short of the total by 28 runs. Warriors get a convincing victory and are through to the finals of the Spice isle T20 Tournament.
