Mohammad Irfan made Twenty20 history as he took two wickets for just one run but his Barbados Tridents side still lost to St Kitts. The Pakistan seamer secured a first-ball duck for West Indies batsman Chris Gayle with the first of his 23 dot balls in the four overs he bowled during the Caribbean Premier League encounter.
It was from Irfan’s final delivery which resulted in the one run he conceded as he recorded the most economical bowling figures in a T20 game.
“I’m really happy. I would’ve been happier if the team won, but I am happy that I bowled one of the best spells in T20 cricket,” the pace bowler said afterwards.
“I liked bowling on the lively wicket, and I get extra bounce because of my height. So yes, a satisfying performance.”
Despite his impressive figures, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots managed to hit 148 with seven balls to spare to win by six wickets.
