T&T 110/3 | Overs 14 | J Mohammad 18* OUT! Bravo 66 (44)
Bravo falls to Ishant. It is a timely strike. Bravo hit a four and six. Off the full delivery, Bravo creams it to covers. This is a big blow.
Bravo is well set what a shot past point for a boundary. He is on a roll. Nine have come off Sammy’s over. Seven overs are left. How much can they get?
Mishra has been smashed for two sixes. The wrong-un was deposited over the head where as the conventional leg-spin was hit over mid-wicket. Mishra is leaking runs here. Bravo brings his half-century.
Only one has come off the over. The first ball was hammered to Jason Mohammad who didn’t get the time to react. Five dot balls in the over. Sunrisers are controlling the game.
Just a four runs come off the Mishra over. He is bowling really well. Trinidad are looking for a momentum shift. They have wickets in hand. Still no Karan Sharma. Won’t be a bad idea to bring him into the attack.
