    Trinbago Knight Riders have moved to the top of the CPL 2021 table with a six-wicket win over Barbados Royals.

    Player of the Match Khary Pierre led the bowling attack for TKR with 3/16 as the Royals were restricted to 93/9 in 20 overs on a challenging pitch.

    Akeal Hosein, Sunil Narine and Jayden Seales took two wickets apiece.

    The chase was not easy for the Knights who lost Lendl Simmons on the first ball and Tion Webster in the third over.

    However, Colin Munro steadied the ship with 41 not out as TKR got to 99/4 in 16.5 overs.

    With two more games to go in the group stage, TKR have moved to the top of the table with 10 points and a net run rate of 1.037, ahead of St Kitts and Nevis Patriots who also have 10 points but a net run rate of -0.619.
