Today – After New South Wales blew Trinidad and Tobago’s bowling to bits, almost no one thought TnT could get the 171 needed to win in 20 overs and for most of their innings Trinidad and Tobago looked on the brink of defeat. By now the cricketing world following the Champion League knows that Trinidad and Tobago is not only the home of Brian Lara but also home to some amazing cricketers, and to quote the Cricinfo scoreboard on the match, “Trinidad & Tobago won by 4 wickets (with 9 balls remaining).”
Neither scoreboards nor Tony Cozier can give the full picture and it was Kieron Pollard’s 54 from 18 balls with five FOURS and five – SIXES which stole the match from the Australians. You had to see it to believe it! Pollard, with the arrogance of a winner blasted Henriques for two FOURS and three SIXES in the 17th over and then for one FOUR and two consecutive SIXES in the 19th to win the match for Trinidad and Tobago. It was almost like the TnT team lead by Daren Ganga was saying “To hell with the West Indies political cricket.”
I don’t know what more to say and you can check it out at ESPNCricinfo and at SkySports. This Trinidad and Tobago Cricket team is AMAZING with three wins from all three matches, including defeating the IPL Champions, the Deccan Chargers, Trinidad and Tobago has energized Twenty20 Cricket like no other team.
