Andre Fletcher struck 57 off 49 balls and Kevin Pietersen hit 42 off 26 balls as St Lucia Zouks ran up 179 in 20 overs, the highest CPL score at the Beausejour Cricket Ground in Gros Islet before rain washed out the match.
Rain arrived five balls into the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel’s chase, forcing the second game of the season to be called off, with the teams taking a point each.
Fletcher and Johnson Charles gave Zouks a strong start after the hosts were inserted. They raced to 37 in four overs before Jacques Kallis had Charles caught at short midwicket for 16. Fletcher, joined by Kevin Pietersen, built the innings before kicking into higher gear in a partnership worth 70 in 8.5 overs. Though both batsmen departed in successive overs, late contributions from Henry Davids (27), Darren Sammy(15) and Kyle Mayers (19) ensured that Zouks finished with a formidable total.
Fletcher and Pietersen hit 13 boundaries between them while Kallis was the pick of the bowlers for Red Steel, claiming figures of 2 for 31.
Kallis would later begin the chase with a four and a six before rain cut the match short.
