Mon, Jul 28, '14
Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel have certainly made the most of home advantage in the last few days, as they completed their third straight win at Queen’s Park Oval yesterday, beating St Lucia Zouks by nine wickets in Limacol Caribbean Premier League action.
The Zouks looked more like they were the targets of a back alley mugging than an even contest, and their only consolation was the wicket of Man-of-the-Match Evin Lewis for 77 off 45 balls after he and opening partner Kevin O’Brien had hammered the visitors, taking the Red Steel to their target of 137 with 32 balls to spare.
O’Brien’s 55 played second fiddle to Lewis, who treated the visitors with disdain, as 12 fours and two massive sixes suggested.

But though the Indian cricketers may be popular and highly respected, none is revered in this the third largest city of India, like the Jamaican, Christopher Henry Gayle.
