       CPL Trinbago v Jamaica highlights

It was a match to remember for Jamaica Tallawahs' (JT) Andre Russell as the all-rounder scored a 40-ball ton, took a hat-trick and also took a spectacular catch in their Caribbean Premier League (CPL ) match against Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) on Saturday. Things could have gone much differently for Russell, who was making his debut as Tallawahs captain, has he not been dropped by Khan off the first ball he faced. The 100 came up in just 40 balls, making it the fastest ever CPL T20 century that also contained a record 13 sixes.

Russell, who ended what had seemed to be an unlikely run chase with a six off-spinner Sunil Narine, received solid support from Kennar Lewis, who made 52 from 35 balls. For two hours, it stood as an all-time Hero CPL record.

Munro backed up his 68 in the opener with 61 from 42 balls here, but it was McCullum who sent an already imposing total truly stratospheric.

Nine of those 14 balls, starting with a generous and extremely costly full-toss from Kemar Roach, went to or over the boundary in a blitz that left the Tallawahs shell-shocked.

Brendon McCullum was dismissed for 56 after a blistering innings.

Earlier, vicious onslaughts from the duo of Colin Munro and Brendan McCullum led the Knight Riders to what had appeared to be an unreachable 223 for 6, particularly with the way the Tallawahs began in pursuit of the target.

Sevilla threaten action over rule change for Spanish Super Cup vs. Barcelona
This is also the first year that the trophy will be decided over one game, with the Super Cup previously a two-legged affair. According to the rule governing the game in Spain, only three non-EU players are allowed in each La Liga matchday squad.

It would turn out to be only the very start of Russell's game-changing night.

His 13th six sealed the match, when five runs had been required from four balls.

Glenn Phillips and Andre McCarthy were caught in the first over, but best of the lot was a rapid nip-backer that was too quick for the vastly experienced Ross Taylor, trapped plumb in front for just a single.

Shannon Gabriel bowled Rovman Powell off a bottom edge in the next over, while Fawad Ahmed struck with his very first ball for the game in a row when he trapped Johnson Charles lbw with a googly for 24 to leave the game seemingly done and dusted at 41/5. The rest is history.
