Commentary

Yorkshire won by 6 wkts | Trinidad and Tobago Vs Yorkshire Live Score, CL qualifiers, pool 2

That's it from us tonight. We have 2 dead-rubbers for you tomorrow. Till then, tata!
Ballance: 'Absolutely delighted to get to the main tournament. I was under a bit of pressure but I knew I could do it. The idea was to get a boundary in every over and take it to the end.'
Ballance is the Man of the Match for his 64 off 37.
Gale: 'Extremely happy to qualify. We're over the moon. Obviously at 8/3 we thought we could bowl them out for less than a 100 but they got a partnership. Still, their score was a bit below par and we knew we needed only one good partnership. Ballance has played some special knocks for us. Adil Rashid is known for his bowling but he was exceptional. We'll celebrate tonight and head to Cape Town for the rest of the tournament'
Ramdin: 'The score was good enough. Myself and Bravo had a partnership and we got to a good score. A score of 160-165 would have been better. In the middle overs, Ballance and Adil Rashid batted sensibly and our bowlers couldn't execute the plans'
Yorkshire qualify for the main tournament. Trinidad and Uva Next are out of the tournament. Trinidad got a superb start with the ball and had Yorkshire at 51 for 4, but Ballance and Adil Rashid counter-attacked and took the game with relative ease in the end. Adil Rashid started the attack and Ballance carried on and went on to play a stunning knock which put the game beyond TT.
18.5 Kevon Cooper to Gary Ballance 6
SIX, Ballance finishes with a six! Short and straight from Kevon Cooper, Ballance pulls it from his face and gets it over deep mid wicket, Bravo was the man there and he seemed to misjudge it, he could have caught it but the ball burst through his fingers and went over the ropes. The partnership between Ballance and Adil Rashid is 103, what a stunning comeback!
18.4 Kevon Cooper to Gary Ballance 0
no run, short of length and outside off, Ballance looks to cut but misses
18.3 Kevon Cooper to Adil Rashid 1
1 run, short of length and outside off, Rashid cuts it to third man
150 runs for YORKS
18.2 Kevon Cooper to Gary Ballance 1
1 run, fuller length on the off, Ballance drives it to long off for a single
18.1 Kevon Cooper to Gary Ballance 6
SIX, this might finish in this over. Slower one outside off, Ballance makes room and lofts it over sweeper cover. As if it was so easy!
Kevon Cooper [2.0-0-14-0] is back into the attack
17.6 Ravi Rampaul to Gary Ballance 1
1 run, pitched up on the off, Ballance drives it to long off
17.5 Ravi Rampaul to Gary Ballance 4
FOUR, what a shot to get to his FIFTY, in the slot and he crashes it between extra cover and long off, hit it intentionally in the air and cleared the in-field
50 runs for Gary Ballance
17.4 Ravi Rampaul to Adil Rashid 1
1 run, pitched up on the legs, Rashid drives it to long on
