T&T win over Chennai Super Kings

Sunil Narine of T & T, bowled exceptionally well, claiming three wickets and giving away just eight runs in his four overs. Coming into the cruch game, Chennai did well in the first half by restricting the rivals to a paltry 123 for eight.  The target could have been even less had they not conceded 49 runs in the last five overs.

T&T scored those 49 runs, largely due to a splendid innings from Kevon Cooper, who hit a 10-ball 28 (three sixes and a four). Opener William Perkins (34) top scored for the T and T, while Adrian Barath (23) also played a useful knock.

Australian paceman Doug Bollinger (3/30) and spinner Shadab Jakati (2/18) bowled well for Chennai in the first half.

Chennai have already lost two of the three matches played.

Dwayne Bravo was the top scorer for Chennai with his unbeaten 32.

Now if the Chennai Super Kings are to make it to the semifinals, they need to win their last match against New South Wales Blues on Tuesdayand expect favourable results from the other matches.

This was T and T’s first win of the tourney and they too stand a chance to qualify for the semifinals as they take on Cape Cobras in
their last group outing on Tuesday.
