In what became a game full of unexpected events, Javon Searles from Trinbago Knight Riders crunched the last ball of the match beyond the lines for a boundary as he fueled his team to get a four-wicket nail-biting win over Jamaica Tallawahs. The match took place on August 19, 2018. Darren Bravo (50), Dwayne Bravo (36 off 11 balls), and Colin Munro (67) played major roles in assisting the side pursue down a cutthroat target of 183.
The Knight Riders required 45 from the last 3 overs. At that time, the captain Dwayne made a decision to lead from the front by hitting three sixes in a row to Krishmar Santokie and brought the math down to 24 off just 2 overs in hands. In the second-to-last over, Munro was taken down by Russell but Dwayne carried on displaying his smacking prowess by clearing the stands a couple of times.
On a similar note and in a different match of the tournament, St Lucia Stars finally made it possible to conclude their losing streak of 13 matches when they defeated Barbados Tridents in their earlier match by 38 runs. Now they will be expecting for another win when they play in the 13th fixture of the CPL 2018 against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in Gros Islet at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium. Both teams have come head-to-head in five matches in the CPL (Caribbean Premier League) with the Nevis Patriots garbing three of those matches while the Lucia Stars has two in their pocket.
Kieron Pollard and Andre Fletcher are the second-highest run-getter duo in this season. They cracked a 54-ball 104 and a 52-ball 80, respectively, in the earlier game against Barbados Tridents. David Warner had lately scored an unbeaten 72 opposite Trinbago Knight Riders.
