Pollard bemoans lack of application by batsmen in CPL

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Jordan Forte

West Indies white ball captain Keiron Pollard is bemoaning the lack of application shown by batsmen in the just-concluded Caribbean Premier League which the Trinbago Knight Riders won for the fourth time in the tournament's history.

The average score in the competition was just over 133 runs for the three week long tournament between two venues in Trinidad and Tobago but for West Indies captain Keiron Pollard the lack of application by the region's top players was unacceptable.

Five of the top seven bowlers in the competition were spinners and regular complaints were made about pitches but Pollard rubbished those claims.

Meanwhile, former Operations Manager of the CPL Carlisle Powell says despite encouraging signs there are still disappointing aspects of the tournament since the inaugural staging in 2013.

Lendl Simmons was the leading run scorer in the competition with 356 runs in 11 innings.
