Andre Russell and Sunil Narine… these two names are known for their quick hitting. As long as these players remain on the crease, it rains for sixes and fours, but in the Caribbean Premier League, despite both of them staying on the crease till the last ball, the team lost. Talking about Trinbago Knight Riders, who suffered a one-run defeat to St Lucia Kings in the 23rd match of the CPL. St Lucia Kings had scored just 147 runs but Trinbago Knight Riders could not win the match, due to Russell and Narine running between the wickets.
St. Lucia’s thrilling victory
At one time the victory of St. Lucia in this match seemed certain. St Lucia had to save 21 runs in the last over. Roshan Primus had the ball in his hands and gave only 4 runs in the first three balls. Trinbago needed 18 runs in the last 3 balls. Russell hit a four on the fourth ball of Primus. Russell hit a six on the fifth ball. Now Trinbago needed 7 runs off the last ball and Russell hit a six. However, despite this six, Trinbago’s team lost the match by 1 run.
