The Defending Champions got off to a flying start.

Munro scored a brisk knock of 68 runs off just 48. The combative southpaw batsman scored nine boundaries and one maximum in his blistering knock.

Meanwhile, the finishing touches to the innings were provided by wicketkeeper-batsman, Denesh Ramdin. The gloveman scored two fours and four sixes in his knock.

On the other hand, no St Lucia Stars batsmen were able to get going as no one got past the 20-run mark. Trinbago Knight Riders skipper Dwayne Bravo scalped three wickets and gave away only 11 runs in the three overs. Furthermore, Fawad Ahmed was the other chief destroyer as he took three wickets and conceded 16 runs in his four overs quota.

Meanwhile, Australia’s pugnacious opener David Warner continued his struggle as he could only score nine runs. Warner’s woodwork was disturbed by all-rounder Javon Searles.

Therefore, the Trinbago Knight Riders were able to start their Carribean Premier League campaign with an easy win. In fact, the hosts were always in a shoo-in position.

Consequently, the Dwayne Bravo led side will like to continue their domination. On the other hand, St Lucia Stars will aim to bounce back after an ignominious defeat.
