A PROPER TKR vs SKNP CPL Final Match Report

Some "highlights"

“Aye, Cooper, ah love yuh,” he shouted (Yes, he! No mistake! An older, balding gentleman whose gait suggested a certain unsteadiness that was perhaps liquid-provoked). “TKR is the greatest side in the world.”

He was dressed in a Trinbago Knight Riders tee-shirt and waving a red bandanna energetically to and fro.

“We bardder than dem by far,” he continued, “bardder than them by name!”

It was a night like that. The exciting three-wicket victory by the home side had freed up the native population and the prospect of a free soca concert from superstar and multiple Road March and Soca Monarch winner Machel Montano was pushing freedom into license.

The St Kitts and Nevis Patriots had threatened to spoil the Machel after-party or any after-party, making a modest 135 and putting up a fight to defend it instead of behaving themselves and lying down and letting captain DJ Bravo and his TKR team walk all over them.

Damn ungrateful! After all we do fuh dem…

Dem think what-the-Afghan-name could get 21 runs off Bravo just so. Is a plan, of course, Bravo gih dem dat! He want a challenge. But Wayne L was not a happy camper; he didn’t understand that.

“If it eh tight, it eh right,” palancing emcees JW and Blaze had been warning all evening, from the time the TKR bowlers put a stranglehold on the Patriots following the removal of the dangerous duo of Chris “Universe Boss” Gayle and Evin Lewis. They must have got a tip-off, an ess from somebody inside; it certainly sounded that way.

“Last year [Carlos] Brathwaite make them fellahs mash up all the furniture by me for the World T20 final,” Ronique joked. “But we go mash up dem Patriots tonight because half the side done down already.”

As if in response, JW announced, “This game is going down to the wire.”

“And we wire strong,” CNC3’s Rundown host shot back.

The bhaji boil-down was well and truly on the way as Hamza Tariq (1cool, Dan Christian (cool and Javon Searles (2) all perished. A few of the “red, white and black” supporters were sounding as though they needed Limacol, others, like Junior J just in front of me, as though they needed Advil.

“This game starting to give me a headache, oui,” he commented.

“Ramdin is we last batsman, inno. He hadda come good for us tonight…,” one older gentleman told a younger one—I’m guessing from the voices; I didn’t want to look.

“Otherwise,” the younger man completed the thought, “we ass is grass.”

Cooper took 21 off a Bravo over—sorry, a Ben Hilfenhaus over. Same difference!—and TKR were home.
lol lol lol

They mash up we Red Force team and they still can’t touch we,” the conversation went. “We get back Narine and Ramdin already; next year, we going fuh Pollard.”

“Dem Bajans eh like he at all,” the response came. “But we ain’t getting him just so.”

“Me eh sure if I want back Pollard, nah, brother,” a female in the group retorted. “I go take Evin, yes. Leave Pollard. Ah cyar take the no balls!”
