It would be nice to add some more teams. Grenada and Vincy should to form a team. Bahamas should have a team. St. Lucia should bring in Dominica on their side.

TKR wins a record fourth CPL title
T&T Guardian Reports.


Opening batsmann Lendl Simmons (84) and Darren Bravo (58) both ended unbeaten, helped guide the Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) to completed the first perfect season in franchise T20 history with an unbroken partnership of 138 off 88 balls, the highest of Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 and the highest ever in a final.

TKR defeated the St Lucia Zouks by eight wickets after set 155 for victory in the title-match at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba, San Fernando on Thursday. The Zouks with their first final appearance posted what seems as a competitive total, but ultimately a loss of 7/39 off the last 32 balls of their innings cost them dearly against this history-making Knight Riders squad.

All season, the Knight Riders had absorbed the loss of key personnel - Colin Munro fractured his hand, Ali Khan missed games, Narine had kidney stones removed and was unable to play the final with a knee injury. But perhaps the 12th and final win is the greatest measure of how great a squad Pollard and Brendon McCullum have built - victory was achieved two wickets down, with 11 balls to spare, without DJ Bravo bowling or Pollard batting. The Knight Riders had come together in the bubble, and emerged from it to achieve something truly monumental.

FINAL RESULTS

Trinbago Knight Riders 157/2 (Simmons 84*, DM Bravo 58*; Chase 1/13, Kuggeleijn 1/30) beat St Lucia Zouks 154 all out (Fletcher 39, Deyal 29, Najibullah 24, Chase 22; Pollard 4/30, Fawad 2/22, Ali Khan 2/25, Hosein 1/26) by 8 wickets

Result: TKR won by eight wickets.

Series: TKR win 2020 CPL title.

Man-of-the-Match: Lendl Simmons.

Man-of-the-Series: Kieron Pollard.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

CPL players leave immediately for IPL.
By Jelani Beckles (Newsday).


PLAYERS who recently competed in the 2020 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) have already left Trinidad for the Indian Premier League (IPL), which will bowl off in the United Arab Emirates, on September 19.

Colin Borde, manager of 2020 CPL champions Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR), told Newsday that the players who will represent Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL left on Friday. TKR and KKR are both owned by Red Chillies Entertainment and the Mehta Group.

“KKR players from the league (CPL)…they all left (on Friday) night for Dubai via Malta and are en route to Dubai as we speak,” Borde said on Saturday afternoon.

TKR pair Ali Khan and Sunil Narine, along with Jamaica Tallawahs allrounder Andre Russell and Guyana Amazon Warriors captain and off-spinner Chris Green left to join KKR. They were joined by TKR vice-captain Dwayne Bravo who will play for Chennai Super Kings. TKR leg-spinner Pravin Tambe, who became the first Indian to play in the CPL, joined them on the flight.

TKR captain Kieron Pollard departed on Thursday night immediately after the finals were played to join the Mumbai Indians. Sherfane Rutherford of the Amazon Warriors arrived in UAE alongside Pollard to play for Mumbai.

Other West Indies cricketers who will play in the IPL are Shimron Hetmyer, Keemo Paul (Delhi Capitals), Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Sheldon Cottrell (Kings XI Punjab), Fabian Allen (Sunrisers Hyderabad) and Oshane Thomas (Rajasthan Royals).

The rest of the foreign players who represented TKR left on Saturday for their respective destinations. They include the New Zealand pair of Colin Munro and Tim Seifert, Australian Fawad Ahmed and Sikandar Raza of Zimbabwe.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
