Watch the thrilling Caribbean Premier League T20 cricket playoff semifinal live online Saturday, when the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel attempt to win their fourth game in eight days by beating 2014 finals runner-up the Guyana Amazon Warriors. The winner of Saturday's high-pressure match advances to Sunday's final where the Barbados Tridents lie in wait.
To watch the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel vs. Guyana Amazon Warriors Caribbean Premier League semifinal live online, use the streaming link the the final paragraph of this article. The match is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. at Queens Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad. That time is identical to United States Eastern Daylight Time, or 1:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
The Red Steel seem to play better cricket the more cricket they play. After a season-opening no-result due to rain, the Dwayne Bravo-led side took two weeks to get their next three games in, thanks to the CPL schedule-makers — and they lost all three.
But despite the seemingly disastrous start leaving the Red Steel with just one point with four of their 10 matches gone, Trinidad & Tobago came storming back, closing the season with four games in six days between July 16 and 21, wining three of those four to earn a berth in the CPL playoffs, finishing in third place.
Then the Red Steel played a fifth game in eight days, opening the playoffs with a win over the Jamaica Tallawahs in Port of Spain on Thursday's first elimination match.
That victory — featuring a five-wicket haul from Dwayne Bravo and an 86-run stand off of 63 balls by the other Bravo, Darren — lifted the Red Steel into Saturday's semifinal.
Their opponent on Saturday, the Guyana Amazon Warriors, are the only team to have beaten the Red Steel on their current five-game, eight day run, and the game will be a rematch of the CPL group stage finale in which Guyana's seven wicket win with 18 balls remaining blocked Trinidad & Tobago from a first-place finish that would have given them a bye straight into Sunday's final.
Instead, that bye went to the Barbados Tridents.
