Taking after the sorrow of Friday, the Saint Lucia Kings bounced back in fashion. They picked up an exciting win over the champs Trinbago Knight Riders. Within the second game of the 2021 Caribbean Premier League.
Another beat performance from Tim David with the bat. Also, coupled with the all-around heroics of Roston Chase. The experience of Wahab Riaz helped Faf Du Plessis get his first win. As captain of the Kings on Sunday at the Warner Park Stadium in St.Kitts.
Batting to begin with on the day, the Saint Lucia Kings openers begun cautiously. As the first two overs yielded fair 11 runs. Rahkeem Cornwall a tossed caution to the wind next. He remits Jayden Seales for two boundaries behind the wicket. Also, followed up with a couple of fours on either side of the wicket. It is against Sunil Narine.

Also, to push the group score to 44 after five overs. The Kings was lost their first wicket within the last over of the powerplay. The slower one from Ravi Rampaul betrayed Cornwall into a false shot.
The wicket slowed down the Kings’ scoring rate. The following three overs yielded 17 runs. Whereas they also lost Fletcher, who chipped one straight back. Into the hands of spinner Akeal Hosein within the 9th over. Rampaul made assist inroads in the Kings batting line-up. As he managed to expel captain Faf Du Plessis. Also, a new man Mark Deyal in his second over. It is taking off the Kings at 71/4 after 10.
Roston Chase was playing second fiddle. It is for most of the partnership, got into his own in Rampaul’s penultimate over. Also, hitting the seamer for a six-over square leg. And a four on the offside to measure up the team score to 131/4 after 17.
