In the grand finale of the CPL 2020, Trinbago Knight Riders thrashed St Lucia Zouks by eight wickets to clinch their fourth title in the history of the tournament. After being put to bat first, Zouks were in a steady position with the scoreboard reflecting 2/88.
However, things changed drastically after Riders’ skipper Kieron Pollard introduced himself into the bowling attack. He picked up four wickets while conceding just 30 runs to curb Zouks to a score of 154.
On a sluggish wicket in Tarouba, it looked like a tricky run-chase for Riders, especially after the departure of Tion Webster and Tim Seifert. Riders were left reeling at 19/2 but it was the batting brilliance of Lendl Simmons and Darren Bravo which helped Riders to hunt down the target and adding fourth CPL title in the vitrine.
Javelle ended with figures of 0/15 off his solitary over in CPL 2020 final
Considering the pressure and competitiveness of the final, sparks of temper were flying between both the sides during the match. When Riders were 19/2, Zouks were hoping to scalp a few more wickets to strengthen their chances of lifting this year’s CPL trophy. When the scoreboard read 86/2 after 13th over during Riders’ run-chase, Zouks skipper Darren Sammy introduced the young leggie, Javelle Glen.
The youngster had the pressure of dismissing Bravo, who smashed him for a massive six. In the heat of the moment, Glen mocked Bravo after he pulled out of a delivery. The leggie even did a zig-zag action to leave Bravo irked before the next delivery.
When Glen bowled the next ball, lest did he know that Bravo had a befitting reply under his sleeve. The southpaw smashed the delivery over the square leg’s head for a mammoth six. Bravo didn’t stop there as he even embarrassed Glen by copying his taunt. It was a forgetful day for Zouks’ bowlers as they were inefficient against the Simmons-Bravo pair. Glen also ended with figures of 0/15 off his solitary over in the final.
In a round of who will get the better of the other, Bravo certainly emerged as the winner. The southpaw remained unbeaten on 58 and Simmons also stayed at the crease with 84*.
