In the game between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Barbados Tridents, St Kitts registered a thumping win. Chasing a modest total of 129, Patriots’ opener Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis battle brilliantly and registered a 10-wicket win.

Mostly, it is Chris Gayle who does all the damage at the top of the order, but in this game, Evin Lewis took the charge and demolished Tridents’ bowling attack. He smashed 11 sixes and 6 fours in his innings and scored runs all around the park.

However, he was not able to complete his hundred because of a ‘controversial’ no-ball bowled by Barbados Tridents’ skipper Kieron Pollard. Lewis was batting on 97 with just 1 run needed to win and Kieron Pollard overstepped giving the needed one run to Patriots and denying Lewis a chance to complete his hundred.

This created a big storm on Twitter as cricket fans from across the world got together in criticising Kieron Pollard’s no ball. He became the hottest topic of discussion on Twitter among cricket fans and most of the tweets slammed him for his ‘lack of sportsmanship’.

Kieron Pollard is very popular among cricket fans for his aggressive style of playing cricket. He travels around the world to play in different domestic T20 leagues and entertains crowd with his aggressive and stylish display of cricket.

However, his no-ball on the last ball of the match against Patriots in the Carribean Premier League (CPL T20), made his fans angry. Here are some of the tweets:
