Just another extraordinary #CPL game here. @sknpatriots couldn’t lay a bat on Irfan but are bludgeoning the other @BIMTridents bowlers to all parts. Score now 93/2 in the 13th over with Brandon King turning 14 off 27 into 50 off 42.#CPL18 #Biggestpartyinsport #BTvSKP

“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,” said Irfan after the match.
“I liked bowling on the lively wicket, and I get an extra bounce because of my height, so yes, a satisfying performance.”

Truly honored & humbled to make the world record for the most economical four over bowling figures in the history of T20 cricket: 4-3-1-2. Thanks @CPL & @BIMTridents. Also I can’t say it enough but Caribbean people are pure love. 🙌🙏🏽 #SayaCorporation @TalhaAisham pic.twitter.com/ot0zdEKMKC
