Commentary (Uva Next innings)

Really bad news! The game has been called off due to incessant rains. Let's hope we get some action from the other match between Hampshire and Sialkot Stallions. Thankfully the rain has cleared and we might get action soon for the second match. Do switch over to the other tab.

Bad news! The drizzle has just got heavier and the players are off. The covers are on. Stay tuned for further updates!

0.1 S Gabriel to D Munaweera, OUT! Gabriel gets a wicket off the first delivery! Poor start for Uva! Back of a length delivery outside off, Munaweera rocks back for an upper cut, doesn't connect it well and helps it uppishly to third man where Perkins sits under it and pouches a good catch. 0/1

Commentary (Trinidad and Tobago innings)

A brilliant performance from Trinidad and Tobago to post a monstrous total on the board! Simmons and Perkins got them off to a good start but then departed in quick succession. Simmons played well for his 34 but it was the pair of Bravo and Ramdin that stole the thunder with half-centuries. They added 95 unbeaten runs for the 4th wicket to power the team to a mammoth total. It's going to be a difficult chase for Uva Next. Join us in a while for their reply.

Toss - Uva Next have won the toss and elected to field. Two changes for them as Ashan Priyanjan and Seekuge Prasanna replace Charith Jayampathi and Chinthaka Jayasinghe. Trinidad have made three changes. Navin Stewart, Shannon Gabriel and Evin Lewis replace Ravi Rampaul, Samuel Badree and Adrian Barath.

Pitch - A lot of grass covering and there are a few cracks on the track which might cause indifferent bounce. The captain who wins the toss would want to bowl first.

This is essentially a dead rubber as Yorkshire and Auckland have already qualified for the main draw. Both the teams would be fairly disappointed but pride will be at stake here and both the teams would be looking to make amends in their pursuit to end on a positive note.

Hello and welcome to the coverage of the CLT20 qualifying round match between Uva Next and Trinidad and Tobago in Johannesburg.
