Jamaica Tallawahs 225 for 6 (Russell 121*, Lewis 51, Ali Khan 3-24) beatTrinbago Knight Riders 223 for 6 (Munro 61, McCullum 56, Russell 3-38) by four wickets

When Ali Khan took three wickets inside the first three overs to reduce Jamaica Tallawahs to 15 for 3 in a chase of 224, the USA seamer was matching his captain Dwayne Bravo move for move in a Trinbago Knight Riders dance-off. One false step in the field by Khan a few overs later and the party was over for the hosts at Port-of-Spain.

Khan spilled Andre Russell's first ball at deep square leg in the seventh over off a top-edged sweep against Fawad Ahmed. The Jamaican then went onto a 40-ball hundred - the fastest in the CPL - in a record chase as Tallawahs won with three balls to spare.

Along with a hat-trick in the 20th over of the first innings, Russell's 121 not out off 49 balls that included 13 sixes, capped one of the greatest all-round individual performances in T20 cricket.
