Trinbago Knight Riders have convincingly completed the double over the St Lucia Stars on Tuesday at Port of Spain. With a win by 4 wickets over the stars, they have managed to go on the top of the points table.

The match was a repeat of the opening game and the result was same too but there was a close contest. Trinbago Knight Riders won the toss and their captain, DJ Bravo elected to field first.

Stars had to struggle a lot against the spin trio of Kharry Peirre, Shadab Khan and Sunil Narine. The trio conceded only 48 runs from their 12 overs and took 3 wickets. Their magnificent bowling performance restricted Darren Sammy’s team to 118 runs for the loss of 9 wickets.

While chasing the total, Knight Riders had the worst start possible. They lost 5 wickets on 52 runs and Stars were hoping to win the match at that moment.

But, young Pakistani sensation, Shadab Khan and Javon Searles built a solid partnership of 45 runs which guided them to a tense win over the St Lucia Stars. Shadab Khan was awarded the player of the match award for his brilliant all-rounder performance.
