St Lucia Zouks opened their account with a 7-wicket win against the defending champions Barbados Tridents in a rain-affected match. A 19-ball 35 at the top from Johnson Charles and a 12-ball 27 by Jason Holder helped the Tridents reach 100 in 12.2 overs only. But the St Lucian spinners pulled back things to contain the Tridents to 131/7 in 18.1 overs by the time rain broke. The match resumed at the cut-off time with St Lucia Zouks requiring a DLS revised target of 47 from five overs. They scored 29 runs in the first three overs before smashing 17 runs from the 4th bowled by Rashid Khan to finish off the chase with five balls to spare.
Here are all the statistical highlights from the first win of the season for St Lucia Zouks:
A rare win chasing for St Lucia:
3/12 – Only the 3rd time where the St Lucia Zouks has won a CPL match while chasing against the Barbados Tridents. The St Lucia team lost as many as ten CPL matches against Tridents out of which nine defeats came while chasing a target.
1st defeat in Tarouba for Barbados:
3-1 – The Barbados Tridents have lost a CPL match for the first time at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba. The Tridents won all the three matches they played here in the CPL; all of them while defending a target.
Rashid scripts T20 records to his name:
300 – Rashid Khan became only the first player from Afghanistan and only the 8th in the World to complete 300 wickets in Twenty20 cricket. Rashid’s country player Mohammad Nabi turned to be his 300th scalp in this format.
213 – Rashid is now the fastest in terms of matches played to reach 300 wickets in Twenty20 cricket. In this process, he broke the record held by Lasith Malinga who needed 222 matches. However, in terms of balls bowled, Rashid’s 4886 balls are marginally more than what Malinga needed for 300 T20 wickets. But Rashid is the quickest to 300 T20 wickets in terms of time taken from his debut as he needed only 4 years and 338 days old.
21y 335d – Rashid Khan is also the youngest player to claim 300 wickets in the Twenty20 cricket. Among the previous seven players with the milestone, only Sunil Narine was not past 30 by the time of his 300th T20 wicket. However, Narine achieved it only six months away from his 30th birthday.
Sammy uses 8 bowlers:
5 – The Barbados Tridents’ innings recorded only the 5th time the bowling team used as many as eight bowlers in a CPL match. The Tridents themselves required service of eight bowlers in a match during the 2013, 2014 and 2015 seasons while St Lucia team had eight bowlers needed to complete 20 overs during the 2018 season game against Guyana Amazon Warriors.
