The rain was the winner after only 12.2 overs were possible on Saturday at the meeting of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) between St. Lucia Zouks and Trinbago Knight Riders at Daren Sammy Stadium.
Colin Ingram was the star of the potential game, which dropped from 36th to 52nd with two six in the first four balls he faced before the rain came.
He set Colin de Grandhomme (17 of 16) to 51 for the third wicket, after Andre Fletcher and John Campbell both had fallen on the first ball with new spells.
Fletcher was caught by Khary Pierre from Ali Khan’s first ball of the night, while Campbell was excellently caught and bumped by Jimmy Neesham, who extended a right-hand in his follow-through to shoot a ball that knocked him back with interest.
Neesham had a far simpler task to dismiss de Grandhomme than his New Zealand team-mate Kieron Pollard took directly into the match, while Rahkeem Cornwall – who moved up to fifth in this match – separated Pierre with a close third on Khan from the final ball before the rain came.
Both teams take a point from the suspended game and leave the Knight Riders one point behind Guyana Amazon Warriors at the top of the table, while the Zouks move within a point of Barbados Tridents in the last playoffs.
The Zouks will face the St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots next Tuesday while the Knight Riders travel to Barbados on Thursday to face the Tridents.
