10.40pm Captain Pollard led from the front but don't forget Andre Fletcher's contribution. Five batsmen failed to get off the mark in fact, but still Stars have posted 226. Surely they can pull off a win with this kinda total, can't they? Well let's find out together in ten minutes or so.

Peter Della Penna: ndre Russell helped Tallawahs chase down a then record CPL total of 223 earlier this season vs TKR. The Knight Riders scored 208 off the first 18 overs last night vs Stars in the chase before taking their time in the last 2 overs to knock off the final 5 runs for victory. 226 by the Stars tonight is by no means safe going on the early evidence of CPL 2018.

Ajay Shankar: "Amazing players and teams. I wish Indians could play, though."

Merin Kumar: "Past 1 week, THREE Caribbean stars registered their highest T20 score ever Andre Russell Darren Bravo Kiren Pollard "

Reifer to Qais Ahmad, no run, ful outside leg stump, and he goes for a wild swing to the leg side. Misses the shot, and the ball goes into the keeper's gloves. Stars end on 226 for 6
Reifer to Sammy, OUT, full on middle, and Sammy tries to swing through the ball's line, but he's got no timing behind this shot. Straight to Nurse at cow corner and Reifer is on a hat-trick!

Guptill and Smith congratulate Pollard as well

Reifer to Pollard, OUT, falls next ball! Good length on leg stump, and the flick goes straight in the air. Dwayne Smith gets underneath it, and he takes a difficult catch at fine leg

KA Pollard c DR Smith b Reifer 104 (54b 6x4 8x6) SR: 192.59

Reifer to Pollard, SIX runs, gets there with a six! And what a celebration from KP! It was a simple length ball on middle, and Pollard simply flat-bats this over the bowler's head for a maximum. No better feeling for a batsman. His first T20 hundred. Highest total in CPL history too
