12.44am And just like that, it's over! Like, where did that come from? I know it's Kieron Pollard but that was stunning! In a matter of six balls, he's turned this around, smashing balls like he was facing them from 14-year old kids throwing underarm to him. A savage finish after what had seemed like a tight contest for the most part. But, hey, give away 30 runs in an over, and you don't expect it to not have a drastic effect too often! All that means Stars finally have some points up on the board, after five defeats in six matches. Pollard has had his place and role as captain questioned for a while. But this innings answers at least one of those questions. Fletcher held his ground, staying unbeaten on 45 at nearly a run a ball, but Pollard neutralises almost everything else that happened in the game in a matter of six balls. But for his solid effort, Fletcher earns the Man-of-the-Match award.
PDP with some perspective:"What a difference a week makes. Last Thursday, Pollard was giving up five sixes to Darren Bravo in a 32-run over, the most expensive in CPL history as TKR pulled off a monumental heist. Now Polly is the one crashing 30 in an over." Karmic!
So that's that then. As always, your comments were engaging and entertaining. Keep 'em coming for tomorrow's double-header. For now, off you go!
Just one to win now!
