Aug.18 (CRICKETNMORE) - A maiden T20 hundred from skipper Kieron Pollard at last propelled St Lucia Stars to a first Caribbean Premier League (CPL) victory in 15 matches.

Captain Pollard led by example, blasting his way to a six-laden 53-ball century – remarkably his first in T20s in his 384th innings – and sharing a sparkling 148-run partnership with Andre Fletcher (80 from 52) in a CPL record score of 226/6.

And, despite 58 off 45 from Tridents opener Dwayne Smith, there was to be no repeat of the previous night’s heartbreak as Barbados’ run-chase stalled in the middle overs and came up well short on 188/6.


Brief Scores

St Lucia Stars 226/6 (Pollard 104, Fletcher 80, Cornwall 30, Wahab Riaz 3/35, Reifer 2/67)
