Lendl Simmons and Darren Bravo scripted an unbeaten partnership of 138 runs as Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) defeated St Lucia Zouks to lift the Caribbean Premier League title on Thursday.
Riding on the partnership of Bravo and Simmons, TKR chased down the target of 155 runs with more than an over to spare to win the CPL 2020 trophy. TKR won their fourth title without losing a single match in this season.
Skipper Kieron Pollard was the star with the ball as he returned with figures of 4/30. It was his introduction into bowling that sparked the collapse in Zouks’ batting order. From 89/2 in the 11th over to all-out for 155 proved a blow too heavy for the Zouks to deal with.
