Spinner Sunil Narine produced a beauty to dismiss Ross Taylor during the game between Trinbago Knight Riders and Guyana Amazon Warriors. It was the opening game of the CPL 2020 and the Warriors were looking threatening with the bat after a poor start. Shimron Hetmyer and Ross Taylor build a solid partnership and the Knight Riders need a breakthrough.
With each passing delivery, Ross Taylor alongside Shimron Hetmyer was taking the game away from Trinbago Knight Riders. The duo had added 50 runs off 35 deliveries after the fall of two early wickets to bring the Warriors back into the game. Ross Taylor, in particular, was aggressive with his approach and he had scored two 4s and two 6s during his knock. When the things were getting for the Knight riders, Sunil Narine took the onus upon himself.
He bowled the 10th over of the innings and the 3rd delivery of the over was a beautiful top-spinner from Sunil Narine. Taylor went for his favourite sweep shot and missed the ball completely. his off-stump was pegged back, and the Knight Riders got a much-needed breakthrough.
