CPL 2020: Pollard’s heroic inning turns the match in Knight Riders’ favour, team wins by 2 wickets

CPL 2020: It was the game that Tridents should have won and end the unbeaten run of Trinbago Knight Riders but that was not the case as Kieron Pollard’s heavy hitting and late dramatic finish by Reifer saw Knight Riders win by 2 wickets at the last delivery of the innings.

The Tridents could not have a better start to the innings as Webster was dismissed early at just 5 and Murno heading back to pavilion at a duck, Simmons on the other hand was strong and patient and had 32 runs to his name but it was all too slow and underwhelming for the team as the wickets kept on falling ad Tridents seemed to have the game.


But it was the heroics of the captain Pollard who smashed 9 sixes and 2 boundaries to march his side to victory he dismissed at 72 the inspiration of his batting prowess made it possible for Knight Rider to win the match but it was not yet done with Pollard out Riders needed 8 from 4 balls to which Pierre hit a six over the point and won the game for Knight Riders with a single to complete a stunning win.

With this win Trinbago remains undefeated at the top of the table while Trdients will have to focus on next games as they will be under pressure from the table who are down in the table.
