In the CPL 2020, Lendl Simmons served for the Trinbago Knight Riders and finished as the most run-scorer in that tournament as the right-handed Caribbean opening batsman scored 356 runs in 11 matches with an average of 39.55 and strike-rate of 122.33. He scored three fifties in that entire tournament, including 54 not out and 84 not out in the semi-final and final of that tournament.
Trinbago Knight Riders owners are also the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL. After observing his latest form, KKR may consider him as one of the top foreign replacements during the IPL 2020. Also, other IPL teams can look at him during their crisis moment in the IPL 2020.
Serving for Mumbai Indians (MI) between 2014 and 2017, Simmons scored 1079 runs in 29 IPL matches (average 39.96; strike-rate 126.64), including one century and 11 half-centuries. His past strong IPL records, including finishing as the joint second most run-scorer (540 runs) in the IPL 2015, are another reason for his comeback in the late IPL 2020.
