Another death-hitting masterclass from Kieron Pollard, well-supported by Darren Bravo, took the Trinbago Knight Riders to their third 170+ score in a row. Darren’s elder brother Dwayne combined with his captain to follow an excellent Powerplay bowling performance and keep the St Lucia Zouks at arm’s length throughout the chase, and seal a ninth Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 win in nine for the Knight Riders.

Sunil Narine was rested again, and openers Lendl Simmons and Tion Webster started slowly, with a pull for six off Scott Kuggeleijn the only boundary Simmons managed before bottom-edging to the keeper. Mohammad Nabi’s second over was expensive, Webster powering him for a Hero Maximum over extra-cover in an over that went for 13.

Kesrick Williams followed a no-ball with a free hit which Tim Seifert powered for six. Seifert, batting at three because of Colin Munro’s hand fracture, followed up with the first four of the innings, then showed off his reverse and orthodox sweep off the returning Roston Chase. Thus the Knight Riders reached 47/1 off the Guardian Life Powerplay.
