Ahead of Friday night’s crunch Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) clash, Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) Chief Mentor Jacques Kallis and Barbados Tridents Captain Kieron Pollard faced the media to look ahead to what is set to be an enthralling affair between the 2014 and 2015 champions.
Ex South African all-rounder Kallis talked about the lessons learned from Thursday night’s six-wicket defeat to St. Lucia Zouks and discussed the influence of his countrymen on Friday night’s proceedings, most notably the prolific de Villiers who is primed to make his CPL debut.
In addition, there’s also further post-match reaction to Thursday’s game from man of the match Johnson Charles (Zouks) and Pakistan international Umar Akmal (TKR).
