Entertainment is guaranteed when West Indies’ players are on the field. Whether it’s their Gangnam style celebration or champion celebration or Chris Gayle playing with his goggles on, they never fail to amaze the fans. And continuing the trend, West Indies batsman Lendl Simmons left everyone surprised when he batted with only one pad on in a Caribbean Premier League match. Playing for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots against Guyana Amazon Warriors on Saturday, Simmons opened the innings with both the pads on his leg as normal. However, he removed one of his pads in the final 8 overs of their innings .
Coming to the match, Simmons hit the slowest half-century in the history of CPL as he scored 50 off 60 balls. On a difficult pitch, the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots’ batsmen found extremely hard to get going as only two batsmen except Simmons could cross the double digit mark. They could score only 108 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in their 20 overs.
Having restricted St Kitts & Nevis to just 8-108, Guyana batsmen made a mockery of the small target as after losing Dwayne Smith cheaply, Martin Guptill and Chris Lynn shared a 60-run partnership to tilt the game in their team’s favour. Guptill slammed four sixes and three boundaries in his knock of 43 from 22 balls while Lynn scored 32 off 37. A mini-collapse followed after the fall of the third wicket but it was too late for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Guyana finally chased down the total in the 17th over.
