Pollard no-ball to be investigated

News

Barbados Tridents allrounder Kieron Pollard faces an investigation into allegations of bringing the game into disrepute by the Caribbean Premier League.

Pollard bowled what appeared to be a deliberate no-ball in the Tridents match against the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots resulting in the end of the match.

On strike at the time was Evin Lewis who had blasted his way to a 32-ball 97 and looked set to achieve the second fastest T20 century ever.

The Caribbean Premier League issued a statement that read: "The incident at the end of the match between Barbados Tridents and the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots on Sunday, September 3 where the match was ended with a no ball bowled by Kieron Pollard is being reviewed by the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL). 
 
"The Hero CPL are very concerned by any suggestion that the action of any player can be considered to have brought the game or the league into disrepute. Cricket owes so much of its unique appeal to the spirit in which the game is played and as a cricket tournament the Hero CPL understand the importance of fair play and good sportsmanship."
