He was caught by Azam Khan off Keemo Paul. Chadwick Walton came in at number three and tried to get things going but he was cleaned up by Imran Tahir after he made 25 off 27 balls with two fours. The other TKR batters were a no-show as they fell like a pack of cards. Keacy Carty was the only one who put up a fight and scored 83 off 49 balls with seven fours and four sixes.
