Scorecard

Trinbago Knight Riders secured back-to-back Caribbean Premier League wins courtesy of a low-scoring victory over Jamaica Tallawahs.

Having restricted the Tallawahs to just 116 for 7 from their 20 overs at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Trinbago edged home thanks to an anchor's innings from Colin Munro.

The New Zealander struck 40 from 28 balls as the Knight Riders recovered from losing openes Nicholas Pooran and Tion Webster without scoring to edge home with five balls to spare.

Munro was joined in a third-wicket partnership worth 67 with compatriot Tim Seifert (28), while Akeal Hosein (14*) and Andre Russell (18*) saw the chase home.

Earlier, Ravi Rampaul was the star of the bowling show for Trinbago. The veteran seamer claimed superb figures of 4 for 19, including the crucial wickets of Brandon King and Rovman Powell, as Jamaica struggled to find their rhythm.

Only Fabian Allen, with a 35-ball 50 from No.7, caused the Knight Riders attack any issues, as the Tallawahs failed to go at a run a ball across their 20 overs.
