CPL 2020: Raymon Reifer castles Sunil Narine in Knight Riders vs Tridents match
Raymon Reifer castles Sunil Narine: Tridents’ pacer bowled Knight Riders’ all-rounder to uproot a couple of stumps in Tarouba.
During the ninth match of the eighth season of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League between Trinbago Knight Riders and Barbados Tridents in Tarouba, Barbados Tridents pacer Raymon Reifer bowled Trinbago Knight Riders all-rounder Sunil Narine to dent the opposition in the middle overs.
It all happened on the third delivery of the 10th over when Narine’s attempt to break the shackles saw him missing a Reifer delivery altogether. The missed big heave resulted in Narine’s stumps getting uprooted from the ground.
Coming on the back of consecutive half-centuries in the first two matches this season, Narine failed to get going today as he ended up scoring a paltry 8 (16) with the help of one four. With Narine having not found his timing despite being there for nearly half the innings, his dismissal was more of a blessing in disguise for the Knight Riders.
Much like Narine, Reifer also had a mediocre match as he leaked 47 runs in the four overs that he bowled. After Tridents captain Jason Holder won the toss and chose to bowl, Knight Riders scored an impressive 185/3 in 20 overs.
Despite them going at almost six an over till the halfway mark, individual half-centuries from Darren Bravo (54*) and Colin Munro (50) played a crucial role in them posting a formidable total.
After Munro’s dismissal in the 13th over, it was an unbeaten 98-run partnership between Bravo and Trinbago captain Keiron Pollard which aided them big time in the death over. Playing a quintessential captain’s innings, Pollard scored 41* (17) with the help of one four and four sixes.
