Summary

  • Pierre: TKR ‘equipped’ for CPL run Despite loss of top bowler Fawad Knight Riders spinner Khary Pierre, centre, celebrates a wicket during the 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League match vs Jamaica Tallawahs at Central Broward Regional Park in Fort Lauderhill, US.
  • PHOTO BY CPL T20 year’s Trinbago Knight Riders breakthrough spinner Khary Pierre says losing fellow spinner Fawad Ahmed was a huge blow, but praised the selection panel for equipping the team with a squad capable of another championship run when the 2019 Caribbean Premier League bowls off in September.
  • Ahmed ended the 2018 tournament as the top wicket taker with 22 wickets in 13 matches at an impressive economy rate of 6.18 for TKR last year.
  • Pierre said, “Well Fawad is a world class spinner so he would be missed on any team, but having said that, I think the selection panel did a great job at the draft to make sure the team is equipped to do what it takes to win a championship.”
  • The Jamaica Tallawahs, winners of the tournament on two occasions, are expected to be among the top teams to challenge TKR for the crown.
