Let’s look at the few not-so-easy or near to unreachable records from the sparkling and powering party in sport.

Match number 10 between the Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) and the Jamaica Thallawahs (JT) during the 2019 edition saw the CPL get to its highest match aggregate of 493 runs. TKR batting first had Collin Munro play an unbeaten knock of 96(50), Lendl Simmons with 86(42) and Kieron Pollard with his 17-ball-47 powered TKR to post 267/2. Jamaica in reply had Chris Gayle hit 39(24), Javelle and Ramaal with 34(24) and 37(15) respectively contributing to the team’s total of 226/5 which had Glenn Phillips top the runs sheet with 32-ball-62. The run feast game saw TKR win by 41 runs.

Best bowling figures: 4-1-6-6

Bowlers don’t really find T20 cricket very pleasing, but on the 3rd of August back in 2013 that certainly wasn’t the case with Shakib Al Hassan as he registered the best bowling figures of the league, finishing on 4-1-6-6 without a wide or a no-ball, that’s what you call a 0 complaint day in the office. Helped with wickets upfront by Jason Holden and Shanon Gabriel, Shakib Al Hassan swiftly tore apart the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steels (now, Trinbago Knight Riders) inning by having the side bowled out for 52 runs. Barbados Tridents (now, Barbados Royals) didn’t have the best of outings with the bat but eventually got there with 4 wickets in hand and 12 overs in the bank.

Highest total in an inning: 267/2

 

The Trinbago Knight Riders’ 2019 outings against Jamaica Thallawahs saw opener, Lendl Simmons get going in his very natural aggressive fashion and with the wicket of opener Sunil Narine on 20(18) out walked Colin Munro and he too got going in his very natural aggressive fashion. With the attack launched from both ends, the Jamaican bowlers found it difficult to contain and Simmons and Munro took full advantage and finished on 86(42) and 96*(50). Out walked Pollard after the wicket of Simmons and did more insult to injury smashing a 17-ball-47 which got TKR powered to a finish of 267 runs.

The best economy rate in the CPL just sees no economy rate, that’s simply as easy as you like. Imran Tahir in the previous (2021) edition playing for Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) had his side post a below-par total of 142 runs, but an inspiring bowling performance led by Imran Tahir upfront dismissing opener Keenar on 3(5) and number 3 batter Kirk for a 3-ball-duck comforted his side and then having not come on to bowl, finished the game with 2 maidens, for no runs and 2 wickets coming off 2 overs. Much more importantly Jamaica Thallawahs were bowled out for 129 and the Warriors registered a 14-run win.

Largest win margin : 120 runs

Last year’s contest between Jamaica Thallawahs and St Lucia Kings saw CPL register its largest win margin. Jamaica batting first had openers Chadwick Walton and Keenar Lewis post scores of 47(29) and 48(21). Haider Ali’s 45(32), Rovman Powell’s 38(26) and Andre Russell’s 14-ball-50 powered Jamaica Thallawahs to a total of 255/5. St. Lucia in reply lost early wickets and Tim David’s 28-ball-56 and Wahab Riaz’s handy 26-ball-29 got the team’s poor outing end on 135. Imran Khan’s 2.3-0-7-3 and Migael’s 4-0-34-4 helped Jamaica Thallawahs register a 120-run win.
