Pollard slammed for apparent deliberate no ball to lose

Kieron Pollard Rahkeem Cornwall Caribbean Premier League Barbados Tridents St Lucia Stars sports news cricket Indian Express

This time around, it was no different as he was accused of yet another dispute on the field of play.

Opener Evin Lewis stroked the fastest half-century of this year's Caribbean Premier League but missed out on three figures in controversial circumstances as St Kitts and Nevis Patriots crushed Barbados Tridents by 10 wickets, in the final preliminary game here Sunday night.

Lewis was disappointed at not being able to reach his milestone but was still happy with how his day panned out. "It hurts (missing out on the ton), but hitting 97 not out off 33 balls?" I'll take that any day. "Confident now and looking forward to the playoffs".

Police crackdown on Mangaluru Chalo bike rally, BJP defiant
Dozens of leaders were detained, shoved into buses and taken away from the protest site but not without the ruckus. Despite the growing chorus against police, restraint was exercised with no untoward incidents.

In their last fixtures, the Patriots lost to the Tallawahs by 41 runs, while the Tridents defeated the Trinbago Knight Riders by 16 runs. The Patriots chased the small total of 129 in just seven overs with a huge run-rate of 18.43.

It also came shortly after Lewis smashed 24 runs off Pollard's first over of the match.

In 2010, Sri Lanka spinner Suraj Randiv was banned for one match after he deliberately bowled a no-ball to deny India's Virender Sehwag the chance of bringing up his ton. It was his first no-ball of the tournament. Pollard jogged up and not only over-stepped by a long way but bowled a slower bouncer that would have likely been called "wide' had it not been a no-ball". What Pollard did was well within the laws, but it didn't pertain to the spirit of the game.
