Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) bowled out St Lucia Zouks for 154, after winning the toss and opting to field in the last of the 2020 edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). TKR skipper Kieron Pollard was once the pick of the bowlers, accounting for four wickets with Ali Khan and Fawad Ahmed picking two wickets apiece. Andre Fletcher was once the highest run-scorer for the Zouks, scoring 39 off 27 deliveries. TKR are lacking out on the services and products of all-rounder Sunil Narine, who is ruled out because of injury. The former are three-time champions having never missed the playoffs since the tournament started. Zouks in comparison have reached their first-ever last in the CPL, having made it to the playoffs for just the second one time in eight seasons this year. (LIVE SCORECARD)
