Hard-hitting batsman Kieron Pollard scored his career's maiden T20 century as he helped his team St Lucia Stars register their first win of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2018. Not only was it season’s first win for St Lucia Stars, it was their first victory after a 15-match losing streak in the CPL. Captain Pollard, while batting at number five, scored 104 off 54 balls to take his side to mammoth 226 for six. Opener Andre Fletcher also made valuable contribution of 80 runs off 52 balls.

Pollard, who came to bat with St Lucia Stars score reading 57 for three, not only bailed his side out from the initial trouble but went on to up the ante towards the end as well. In the last over Raymon Reifer accounted for Pollard’s wicket. The right-hander during his stay smashed six fours and eight sixes and added 148 for the fourth wicket with Fletcher. CPL 2018 Live Streaming and Telecast in India: Here’s How to Watch Caribbean Premier League T20 2018 Cricket Matches Online and on TV
