TKR to face Patriots in Friday's semi-final

It's a Caribbean Premier League showdown between the 'World Boss' and the 'Universe Boss' on Friday, at the grounds named after the real boss.

Chris Gayle, nicknamed Universe Boss, will lead the St Kitt's and Nevis Patriots against Dwayne Bravo, aka World Boss, and the Trinbago Knight Riders in the semi-final clash at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy.

This comes after the Patriots defeated the Jamaica Tallawahs at Providence Grounds in Guyana Wednesday night.

The Tallawahs had set the Patriots 192 to win, led by a knock of 103 by Glenn Phillips and a handy 33 from Ross Taylor.

Anton Devcich led the Patriots' reply with an even 50 with Gayle contributing 26.

The Patriots went into the final over needing 15 runs.

After a quick 6 by Man-of-the-Match Ben Cutting to cut the deficit to 9 runs, Rovman Powell bowled 4 wides to reduce it to 5 needed from 2 balls.

Cutting finished the game on the penultimate ball with a massive six to set up the clash with the TKR.

Friday's semi-final will see a performance by reigning Road March Machel Montano at halftime.

The winner of that clash will face the Guyana Amazon Warriors in Sunday's final at the same ground.
