A power-packed 47 from new skipper Kieron Pollard and all-round heroics from New Zealand star Jimmy Neesham helped two-time defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders start the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) with a thrilling 11-run win over St Kitts & Nevis Patriots.

Pollard, leading the side after the finger injury suffered by Dwayne Bravo, powered his side to 152/7 after Neesham and Denesh Ramdin’s 60-run partnership had begun the champions’ recovery from an early slump to 24/3.

After his vital 33 with the bat, Neesham then made the crucial first breakthrough with the ball to end a 47-run opening partnership, having Kjorn Ottley caught and bowled off a slower ball for 25, before catching Evin Lewis for 36 off the impressive Khary Pierre to trigger a decisive collapse of four wickets for six runs.

I think this thing is set for Trinidad to win again. Why is it Trinidad is the only team that does not have to play back to back days? Considering that they are the defending champions, they should be able to show their mettle and play as tough a schedule like the other teams. With this kind of fixing, interest in the competition will soon wane.
