St Lucia Stars 226 for 6 (Pollard 104, Fletcher 80, Riaz 3-35) beat Barbados Tridents 188 for 6 (Dwayne Smith 58, McCoy 3-28, Qais 2-29) by 38 runs
July 31, 2016. That was the last time St Lucia's CPL franchise last won a match. But their two-year streak of futility is no more after Kieron Pollard's maiden T20 century propelled the Stars to a CPL record total of 226 to help break a 14-match losing streak in a 38-run win over Barbados Tridents.
After blowing a golden chance at breaking the CPL's longest streak of futility 24 hours earlier, Obed McCoy's brilliant spell of slower balls denied a late charge by the Tridents to help clinch St Lucia's first win since a 17-run win in Florida when Barack Obama was president of the USA and the franchise was still known as the Zouks.
