Stunning Chris Jordan catch not enough as Trinbago exit CPL

Chris Jordan's stint in this year's Caribbean Premier League came to an end last night after Trinbago Knight Riders narrowly lost to Barbados Tridents in a thrilling semi-final.

After winning the toss, Trinbago opted to bowl first and CJ produced an impressive catch to dismiss Tridents opener Johnson Charles for 35, before taking figures of 2-40, with his first wicket a trademark piece of magic. 

With a deceptive slower ball, Jordan completely fooled Jonathan Carter, and the West Indies batsman could only watch on as he was caught & bowled by a diving CJ. 

Three balls later, the Sussex fast-bowler had his second wicket of the night when Jason Holder was caught on the boundary by Colin Munro for just one, and the Tridents were eventually restricted to 160-6 from their 20 overs. 

In reply, Trinbago lost wickets at key times, despite the likes of Sunil Narine (17), Munro (16) and Danesh Ramdin (21) all getting starts.

Captain Kieron Pollard also failed to convert 23 off 16 ball into a big score, with Seekuge Prasanna the only Knight Riders batsman to enjoy an extended spell at the crease.

Prasanna's half-century took Trinbago within touching distance of victory, but when he was bowled by a brilliant Raymon Reifer yorker, and Jordan went for five, the Tridents were victorious by 12 runs to secure their spot in Saturday's final.
