Sent in to bat TKR managed a mediocre 138/9 in 20 overs with a top score of 32 by Colin Munro. Mohammed Hafeez and Romario Shepherd took 3 wickets apiece.
Set to chase 139 Guyana struggled on a pitch difficult for strokeplay with both Heytmer and Pooran scoring 27 each. Both the batters needed to stay till the end but superb bowling by TKR led by Ravi Rampaul’s 4 wickets and Narine’s 2/9 in 4 overs managed to tie the game !!
Narine almost took TKR to a win by giving away only 6 runs in his superover but Romario Shepherd was even brilliant giving away only 4 runs in his over to take Guyana to a thrilling superover win.
However, the incident which made this game even more famous was an astounding catch by Akeal Hosein off Nicholas Pooran. Pooran who struck the ball high over cover saw to his astonishment, Akeal Hosein leaping in the air in the extra cover boundary and pulled off a brilliant one-handed catch with his left hand and landed inches inside the boundary. Pooran could not believe it and smiled as he left the crease. Akeal Hosein takes a stunner in CPL T20 to make Twitter go crazy .
