Chasing 123, Pollard managed was the star of the show after losing early wickets.
The Knight Riders achieved the target in the 17th over.
Phillips and Azam shine for Royals
There are only two players that we have to talk about regarding Royal’s batting display, and they are Azam Khan and Glenn Phillips.
Despite a poor start, both of these batsmen were outstanding for the Royals.
They scored 30 and 24 runs respectively to ensure that Royals have something on the board.
Royals were 103/4 before Azam Khan got out via Udana.
Apart from them, there was not much to shout about for Barbados.
Udana was the star of the show for Knight Riders as he took 5 wickets and gave away just 21 runs to ensure that Barbados did not find any momentum in batting.
After Azam got out, Barbados completely collapsed and could only add another 19 runs to their total.
The Pollard show thumps the Royals
Pollard’s superb batting display completely shattered Royal’s as their main triggers couldn’t do much to defend a small target of 123.
The West Indian superstar scored a superb half century to ensure that the Knight Riders get over the line.
The winning team lost wickets earlier on as the boundaries dried up.
Mohammed Amir was the pick of the bowlers for Royals as he grabbed three wickets to give away just 21 runs.
The first three batsmen of Trinbago could only score 18 runs.
The match looked interesting at that moment.
To their credit, they still hung around before Pollard took over.
Pollard made 58 runs off 30 balls to ensure that the Knight Riders achieved the target in the 17th over.
Trinbago Knight Riders 125 for 4 (Pollard 59*, Amir 3-21) beat Barbados Royals 122 (Udana 5-21) by six wickets.
