Direct hit scuppers Martin Guptill as Mohammad Irfan magic can't save Tridents

Pakistan fast-bowler Mohammad Irfan has entered the record books after producing the most economical four-over spell in T20 history for Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League.

Irfan has played a total of T20 internationals for Pakistan where he has taken 15 wickets with an economy rate of 7.25. The left-armer produced scarcely believable figures of 2/1 from his full quota of overs during the CPL fixture between Barbados Tridents and St Kitts & Nevis Patriots. The end of Irfan's spell brought relief for the duo as they recovered to put on 88 runs for the third wicket - including 27 runs from one Steve Smith over, which included four sixes. He finished with scarcely-believable figures of 4-3-1-2.

Brendon McCullum's 42-ball 66 helped Trinbago Knight Riders beat Barbados Tridents by four wickets and reach the top of CPL 2018 points table at the Kensington Oval.The Tridents opted to bat first but managed only 128 for 8 with Fawad Ahmed, Khary Pierre and Dwayne Bravo picking up two wickets each.

Defender respects Leicester after blocked Manchester United move
Maguire has revealed that United were interested in signing him, but the defender "respected" the decision of the Leicester owners to hold firm.

Skipper Jason Holder top scored for Tridents with a 35-ball 54 with four fours and three sixes.

In reply, the visitors found it hard to tackle the bowling spell of Irfan during the early stages of their innings - but once the Pakistan quick was finished with his spell - the team recovered nicely to chase down the target with seven balls and six wickets to spare.

The Patriots chased down the target in 18.5 overs for the loss of four wickets, with Brandon King getting 60 from 49 deliveries.
