Patriots knocked out as rain plays spoilsport
Meanwhile, the Tallawahs are just a win away from confirming their spot in the semifinals

Only 5.4 overs were possible in Match No. 25 of the Caribbean Premier League 2020 at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, as the all-important encounter between Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots was washed out on Thursday (September 3).

With seven points to their name, Jamaica are now just a win away from confirming their place in the semifinals. Meanwhile, St Kitts and Nevis are now officially out of the tournament. Trinbago Knight Riders, Guyana Amazon Warriors and St Lucia Zouks have already made it to the knockouts.  

Jamaica's remaining two games are against Barbados Tridents and St Lucia. Meanwhile, the Rayad Emrit-led side will play their final match against Trinbago who are yet to lose a game this season.

Coming back to the match, Jamaica opening bowlers Fidel Edwards and Mujeeb Ur Rahman were tidy in the first three overs and didn't allow out-of-form Chris Lynn and Evin Lewis to get off to a flyer after they won the toss and opted to bowl first.  

Lynn, who had hardly created any impact this season, once again found it tough to get going against Mujeeb. The right-handed opener from Australia tried to go after left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul but just couldn't get his timing right. The 33-year-old however did finally manage to break the shackles in the fifth over when he smashed Mujeeb for two maximums and a four through the leg side.

Lewis looked good in patches as he slammed Edwards for back-to-back boundaries and made his intentions clear by tonking Permaul for a six down the ground. St Kitts were 46/0 in 5.4 overs before the rain arrived to play spoilsport.
