Trinbago Knight Riders looked set to achieve their second consecutive big win in the CPL 2018 after reducing the Jamaica Tallawahs to 41/5 during the defence of their total of 223/6. However, the new skipper of Tallawahs, Andre Russell, batted ruthlessly after being dropped on the very first ball he faced. The all-rounder smashed an unbeaten 121 off 49 balls with six fours and 13 maximums to take his team home with three balls and four wickets to spare.
All the major stats and numbers that were recorded during the high-scoring thriller:

The scores of 225 and 223 are also the highest totals in the T20 format in West Indies. St Kitts and Nevis made 213/3 against Antigua in the 2006 domestic T20 game, which was the previous highest T20 total in West Indies.
2 – Andre Russell’s hat-trick in this game is only the 2nd in the history of CPL. Rashid Khan registered the first hat-trick of CPL in 2017 for Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Eliminator game against Jamaica Tallawahs.
2 – Russell became only the 2nd player after Joe Denly to score a century and take a hat-trick in the same Twenty20 game. The English player achieved this feat in the T20 Blast game last month.
13 – Andre Russell’s 13 sixes in the game are the most in a CPL innings thus far. Chris Gayle and Russell hit 11 sixes each playing for Jamaica in 2016 also against Trinbago in two different matches.
