Dwayne Bravo struck five sixes off just 11 deliveries at Lauderhill, Florida.

Colin Munro and Dwayne Bravo were the stars in Trinbago Knight Riders’ thrilling last-ball win over the Jamaica Tallawahs in their Caribbean Premier League (CPL) clash in Florida on Sunday.

With three runs needed off the last ball, Knight Riders’ Javon Searles smashed Oshane Thomas for a boundary over extra-cover to pull off a dramatic four-wicket win for his side.

Earlier, New Zealand’s Glenn Phillips (80) and South Africa’s David Miller (72) combined together to help the Tallawahs post 182-5 in their 20 overs after they were made to bat first Dwayne Bravo.

The two half-centurions helped resurrect a floundering Tallawahs innings as the side went on to score 124 runs off the final 10 overs.

In reply, the Knight Riders got off to a horror start with openers Sunil Narine (0) and Chris Lynn (2) dismissed inside 13 deliveries. Brendon McCullum (8) soon fell before his New Zealand compatriot Munro (67) stitched a 107-run stand for the fourth wicket with Darren Bravo (50).

Phillips and Millers shored up Jamaica's innings.

It was Dwayne Bravo’s cameo though, which ultimately helped the Knight Riders reach the finish line. The Knight Riders skipper smashed 36 runs off just 11 deliveries with the help of five towering sixes before Searles scored the winning runs off the final delivery.

This was the Knight Riders’ third victory in five matches and has propelled them to second spot in the table behind Guyana Amazon Warriors. The Jamaica Tallawahs dropped down to third spot on the basis of net run-rate although they have the same number of wins in five matches as the Knight Riders.

BRIEF SCORES

Jamaica Tallawahs: 182-5 (20 overs)

Glenn Phillips: 80 (55)

David Miller: 72 (34)

Trinbago Knight Riders: 184-6 (20 overs)

Colin Munro: 67 (51)

Darren Bravo: 50 (35)

Imad Wasim: 2-17 (four overs)

Pandya picked up his maiden Test five-wicket haul at Trent Bridge.

Following his sensational spell of bowling at Trent Bridge in on Sunday which yielded five wickets in just 29 balls, Hardik Pandya has hit back at his critics.

The 24-year-old India all-rounder has come in for criticism in recent weeks with many questioning his role in the side.

Pandya’s maiden five-wicket haul helped India bowled out England for just 161 in their first innings in the third Test with the visitors now well placed to push for a win.

“First of all, I don’t play for them (critics). They are getting paid for saying things which I don’t want to know about and I don’t even care what they say. I play for my country. I don’t care what they say. It’s their job to say it and it’s my job to play for my country. I’m doing the right thing. My team is happy with me. Nothing else matters,” Pandya said.

Pandya's spell saw England lose 10 wickets in a session.

West Indies great and commentator Michal Holding had earlier said that Pandya was nowhere near the ilk of former India all-rounder Kapil Dev.

“I heard a mention, when I was working in South Africa: ‘he is the next Kapil Dev’. I ain’t going to tell anybody he’s not going to be the next Kapil Dev, but he is nowhere near there yet,” Holding told ESPNCricinfo.

Pandya has insisted that he does not want to be compared to the India legend.

“The problem is this what happens is they compare, fine. But all of a sudden when something goes wrong they say, ‘He is not that’.

“I never wanted to be Kapil Dev. Let me be Hardik Pandya, I’m good at being Hardik Pandya. I’ve come so far — playing 40 ODIs and 10 Tests — being Hardik and not Kapil Dev.

“He was great in his era. Let me be Hardik Pandya. Stop comparing me with anyone. I’ll be happy if you don’t,” the all-rounder said.
