The Trinbago Knight Riders will
be hoping to reverse their fortunes
tonight when they meet the
Jamaica Tallawahs in their last
home match at the Queen s Park
Oval from 7 pm.
Two losses from three matches
does not inspire confidence for the
locals, especially given the fact that
they will come face to face with
world boss Chris Gayle.
After an opening loss to the St
Lucia Zouks, Trinbago Knight Riders
returned to form with an emphatic
win against the Barbados Tridents.
However the joy was short lived, as
Australian Chris Lynn put water in
their eyes on Saturday night to lead
the Guyana Amazon Warriors to a
convincing second win on the road.
After Colin Munroe struck an
unbeaten 100 to lead the Knight
Riders to 162 for five of their 20
overs, Lynn silenced the 17,000
crowd on hand with an amazing
power hitting exhibition. He slapped
77 of 43 balls with eight sixes and
a four. He fell towards the end of
the chase but the damage was done
and the Knight Riders lost by six
Earlier, Bravo lost the toss and
had to settle for the fact that his
team would be bowling with the
dew in effect, as Warriors put them
in to bat.
First ball and New Zealander
Brendon McCullum was walking
back into the dugout. He touched
a delivery from Pakistan s Sohail
Tanvir and continued his struggles
in this tournament. The right han-
der has scored 13 runs off 17 balls
in three innings so far.
After his dismissal the star in the
previous game Hashim Amla fol-
lowed as he tried an uncharacteristic
inside out shot against a straight
ball from Veerasammy Permaul only
to see his stumps lit up.
The unorthodox Colin Munroe
was hitting the ball well and together
with Darren Bravo saw the score
past the 50-run mark. He was inter-
ested in the aesthetics of batting
but more the tally in the scorebooks,
as he counted boundary after
boundary. He raced to his maiden
CPL half century of 34 balls with
four fours and four sixes.
After getting to the landmark he
continued to hammer the bowling
and rapidly reached into the 80s.
He lost skipper Dwayne Bravo for
18 with the score at 139 and the
acceleration over the last five overs
was not what was expected.
Going into the happy hour, Knight
Riders were 114 for three but got
only 48 in the last five. Munroe was
however able to become the first
foreign player to hit a century in
the CPL and finished unbeaten on
100 of 65 balls with seven fours and
St Kitts and Nevis Patriots hit an
imposing 203 for seven, then stifled
a promising run chase by the St
Lucia Zouks to win the sixth match
of the Caribbean Premier League
T20 at Basseterre by 61 runs, yes-
The Patriots were indebted to
openers Lendl Simmons (30) and Evin
Lewis (73) who blasted 69 from the
first six overs in a flying start to the
When Simmons fell to the left arm
spin of Derone Davis in the seventh
over, Lewis and his captain Faf du
Plessis (9) added another 46 with the
opener dominating the stand. How-
ever having lost du Plessis at 115,
Lewis followed in the next over caught
by Darren Sammy off Watson. His
innings included six fours and five
sixes and he faced 36 balls.
The Patriots, however, continued
their assault with Devon Thomas tak-
ing charge of the innings and blasting
48 from 27 balls which included five
sixes and one four. By the time he
was dismissed, the Patriots were one
short of 200, which they duly got,
setting up a massive run chase.
Watson ended with 3-36.
Watson and Johnson Charles set
about the chase reaching 90 in the
tenth over before Charles dismissal
saw a flutter of wickets from which
the Zouks did not recover.
Charles 40 included three sixes
and one four and nine runs later, Wat-
son followed ending an innings of
55, as leg spinner Samuel Badree
removed both openers.
Watson struck four fours and three
sixes in his 31-ball blast.
But none of the other batsmen
could match the openers and the
chase petered out in the face of some
tight bowling led by Badree who
ended with 2-22.
