Hero CPL to review Pollard no-ball
The incident at the end of the match between Barbados Tridents and the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on Sunday, September 3 where the match ended with a no-ball bowled by Kieron Pollard is being reviewed by the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
“The Hero CPL is very concerned by any suggestion that the action of any player can be considered to have brought the game or the league into disrepute. Cricket owes so much of its unique appeal to the spirit in which the game is played and as a cricket tournament the Hero CPL understands the importance of fair play and good sportsmanship,” Hero CPL said in a release.
Pollard has been criticised on social media after bowling a no-ball which denied opposition batsman Evin Lewis the chance of a century.
The Tridents skipper delivered a big no-ball when Lewis was on 97 off 32 balls, with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots needing one run to beat Barbados Tridents in the Twenty20 competition.
The no-ball gave 25-year-old Lewis’ side the win but saw him miss out on the chance of a ton after he and captain Chris Gayle reached 129-0 in just seven overs.
