Trinbago Knight Riders inflicted further misery on St Lucia Stars as they completed a sensational five-wicket win after they completed the second-biggest chase in CPL history at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet.
On the back of fifties from David Warner, Kieron Pollard and Rakheem Cornwall, the Stars posted their franchise-record total after batting first. But on the back of a fifty from McCullum and an unbeaten 36-ball 94 from Darren Bravo, Knight Riders got over the line with a ball to spare.
Here are some interesting statistical highlights from the game:
0 - No other T20 match has seen more sixes being hit that the clash between the Trinbago Knight Riders and St Lucia Stars, which saw 34 sixes being hit by both teams combined. That equaled the world record for most sixes in a T20 match which was set when the Central Districts took on Otago in 2016.
2 - Thanks to Darren Bravo's 26-ball 94, Trinbago Knight Riders registered the second-highest chase in CPL history. The record for the highest chase belongs to Jamaica Tallawahs, who chased down 224 against the Knight Riders earlier this season.
