CPL Highlights - Jamaica Win Last-Ball Thriller

Watch highlights as the Jamaica Tallawahs win the final group game of the Caribbean Premier League 2013 off the final ball against the Trinidad & Toboago Red Steel.

The win moved Jamaica up to second in the final table and booked them a semi-final against the Barbados Tridents.

The Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel will face the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the other knockout match.

It was another low-scoring game and Red Steel posted 133 for eight batting first. Dwayne Bravo made a quickfire 29 in 16 balls as one of the few batsmen able to make an impact.

Darren Bravo (27), Ross Taylor (20) and Kevon Cooper (14 not out) all made useful contributions but none could score at more than a run-a-ball as Chris Gayle picked up two for 24.

David Bernard, Andrew Richardson and Andre Russell took a wicket apiece to keep the scoring rate down.

Gayle then hammered 51 in 25 balls, with four fours and five sixes to get the Jamaica run chase off to a rousing start in front of their home crowd.

Opening partner Chadwick Walton made 28 but Jamaica almost lost their way as they collapsed from 81 for one to 126 for seven.

Within sight of the line, however, Danza Hyatt made a priceless unbeaten 25 and the winning run came when Kevin O'Brien misfielded the final ball of the match, allowing Akeem Dewar through for a single.
