The Caribbean Premier League has started and with this has started the impeccable style of the players of the West Indies. On September 1, a match was opened in this league between St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Barbados Royals and Barbados won the match. This victory was not easy for Barbados but a batsman made it easy. With this innings, this batsman also scored his first half-century this season.
Batting first, St Kitts scored 149 for the loss of eight wickets. This target was achieved by the Barbados team in 15.1 overs for the loss of three wickets. Kyle Myers’ bat shone in Barbados’s victory, which was still running quiet. When this batsman’s bat went on, it happened that the team got the victory 11 balls already. Due to rain, this match was reduced to 17 overs per innings.
The target of 150 runs in 17 overs was not easy even when you have bowlers like Dwayne Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Dwayne Pretorius and Akila Dhananjay in front of you. But Myers did not leave any of these and scored fiercely. Ever since this opener stepped on the field, he hit hard. Myers faced 46 balls and scored 73 runs with the help of six fours and four fours. He got out after bringing the team near the threshold of victory. When Myers’ wicket fell, his team’s score was 145 runs. He scored runs at a strike rate of 158.69. His opening partner Rakhim Cornavel scored 39 runs. The pair added 64 runs for the first wicket. Myers had played three matches before this and he could not score a half-century in all three matches. Talking about the T20 format, he could not impress much in the series against India and New Zealand.
Fletcher’s innings turned water
Earlier, Andre Fletcher played a brilliant innings for St Kitts. This opener scored 81 runs in 55 balls. In this innings, he hit 11 fours and a six. But apart from him, no other batsman could contribute well. Only two batsmen of this team could go beyond the double figures. Apart from Fletcher, Joshua Jaa Silva scored 19 runs. No other batsman could reach the double figures. Corbin Bosch took one wicket for 33 runs in three overs but took five catches and was adjudged man of the match.
