Pollard slams cricket red card

Tuesday, Aug 29, 2023

PARIS: Former West Indies captain Kieron Pollard said the first Caribbean Premier League red card handed out to his Trinbago Knight Riders side was "absolutely ridiculous".

Trinbago were forced to field with only 10 players, including just two outside the 30-yard circle, for the final over of their bowling innings against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots on Sunday due to a slow over-rate. The CPL has brought in the red card rule as part of new initiatives to speed up slow over-rates.
