Pollard Grateful For Historic Fourth CPL Title

Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) clinched a record fourth Caribbean Premier League (CPL) title in imperious fashion when they made light work of St Lucia Zouks by eight wickets in the final to complete a historic unbeaten campaign in the franchise tournament yesterday.

Inspired by captain Kieron Pollard’s four-wicket haul, TKR withstood an early onslaught to restrict Zouks to 154 all out with five balls left in the innings, with Andre Fletcher top-scoring with a classy 39 off 27 deliveries.

And the target proved inadequate for star-studded TKR as opener Lendl Simmons blasted an unbeaten 84 from 49 deliveries with eight fours and four sixes and Darren Bravo, 58 not out off 47 balls with two fours and half-dozen sixes, to fire their side to victory with 11 balls remaining at the Brian Lara Stadium.
