So that brings an end to the live coverage from me and my partner Dwijesh Reddy. Stay tuned for the next CPL game between Guyana Amazon Warriors and Barbados Tridents which will start in a few hours' time. 
A clinical performance for TKR from start to finish. They were always the favourites but the bowlers also stepped upto the plate in an admirable fashion. After losing two wickets in the first two overs, Nkrumah Bonner and Glenn Phillips tried to resurrect the inning but the latter's inning was too slow given the asking rate. 

After Bonner's dismissal, Jamaica collapsed further as the trio of Glenn Phillips, Rovman Powell and Asif Ali got out in quick succession. 

When Carlos Brathwaite joined Andre Russell in the middle, Jamaica required a mammoth 88 off just 35 balls. Even by Russell's standards, this was going to prove tough and that is exactly what happened as Jamaica fell short by 19 runs. Russell did manage to reach his fifty but he might be left to wonder what would have happened by batting higher up the order. Credit should also go fo  Dwayne Bravo as he bowled superbly at the death. 

19.6 Kieron Pollard to Andre Russell, SIX! That brings up Russell's fifty as he heaves a full ball towards cow-corner although he ends up on the losing end as Trinbago Knight Riders beat Jamaica Tallawahs by 19 runs after a thoroughly entertaining game at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy Ground!
19.5 Kieron Pollard to Andre Russell, SMASHED! Russell has picked the bones out of a full ball as he whacks it at Pollard and into the boundary for a four! That was brutal!
19.4 Kieron Pollard to Andre Russell, good bowling from Pollard as he outfoxes Russell with a slower ball bowled outside off! 
19.3 Kieron Pollard to Carlos Brathwaite, similar ball once again and Brathwaite pulls it towards the leg-side but for only a single
19.2 Kieron Pollard to Andre Russell, a slower ball bowled short into the batsman, Russell drags a pull shot to the long-on region for just a single
19.1 Kieron Pollard to Andre Russell THAT IS HUUUGE! Pollard bowls a length ball on the stumps and Russell gets down low and slogs it way over the long-on boundary for a six! 
Outstanding death bowling from Dwayne Bravo. That should be the match for TKR unless Jayden Seales succumbs to pressure. Jamaica: 147/6. They require 38 off 6 balls
18.6 Dwayne Bravo to Andre Russell, straighter this time and Russell groans in anger as he mistimes a heave into the leg-side for just a single as Jamaica needs an improbable 38 runs off the final over!
18.5 Dwayne Bravo to Andre Russell, full ball outside off, Russell plays it uppishly to Jayden Seales, who doesn't take a low catch at backward point but manages to stop it from going to the boundary!
18.4 Dwayne Bravo to Carlos Brathwaite, yorker once again on the stumps, Brathwaite can only dig it to the man at long-on and take a harmless single as hopes of a Jamaica win quickly fades away!
18.3 Dwayne Bravo to Andre Russell, straighter this time from Bravo and Russell mistimes a drive towards the long-on region and can only get a single off that! Good ball from Bravo after the boundary off the previous ball!
18.2 Dwayne Bravo to Andre Russell, FOUR! Wide yorker outside off, Russell gets hold off a cracking drive towards the off-side and gets four more. He is keeping his side in the contest!
18.1 Dwayne Bravo to Carlos Brathwaite, a low full-toss on the middle stump, Brathwaite can only drive it to the cover fielder for a single. Over to you Russell!
22 runs from that over but TKR won't mind that. That said, it was a tough ask for a young seamer like Jayden Seales to come on for the first time against Andre Russell during the death overs.  Jamaica: 139/6. They require 46 off 12 balls
17.6 Jayden Seales to Andre Russell, SIX! Full-toss on the stumps and Russell smashes it over long-on for another maximum as a very expensive over from Seales comes to an end!
17.6 Jayden Seales to Andre Russell, wide ball from Seales under pressure! Not what TKR fans want at the moment with Russell at the crease!
17.5 Jayden Seales to Andre Russell, full ball bowled outside off, Russell can't get underneath it this time and cannot get a single for that!
17.4 Jayden Seales to Andre Russell, FOUR MORE! Russell crashes a cover drive towards extra cover and gets four more! Can he keep this up?
