Basseterre,St.Kitts August 25 2020 (SKNVIBES)
Ben Dunk hit consecutive Hero Maximums in the last over to ensure Evin Lewis’ brilliance was not in vain, taking the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots to their first win of Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020. The Barbados Tridents however will take encouragement from their middle order firing at last as well as good performances from some inexperienced bowlers.
Patriots captain Rayad Emrit bowled first, perhaps unsure of the par score at Queen’s Park Oval. While Sohail Tanvir was wayward, the recalled Alzarri Joseph found some accuracy he’d lacked in previous games.Shai Hope again started slowly and was still under a run a ball at the end of the Powerplay. Jaggesar could have dismissed him three times, but the off-spinner got a reward with the wicket of Johnson Charles, who missed a sweep and was out LBW.Hope continued to eat up deliveries before Jaggesar finally got him, Emrit taking the catch at deep midwicket to leave the Tridents 59/2 at halfway.
