Muhammad Irfan Historic T20 Spell

Mohammad Irfan has produced the most Economical Four-over spell in T20 history for Barbados tridents in the Caribbean Premier League - but it wasn't enough to get his team over the line against St Kitts and Nevis.

The towering Irfan took two Wickets and conceded just one run from his four overs against the patriots in Bridgetown. Incredibly, he bowled 23 dot balls before leaking a scampered single off his 24th and final delivery, finishing with figures of 4 overs, 3 maiden, 1 run for 2 Wickets.

Irfan captured the key Wicket of Chris Gayle with the first ball of the innings, following up with the scalp of fellow Opener Evin Lewis in his second over.

He beat the bat a total of 17 times and drew one edge, with the St Kitts pair of Brandon King and Devon Thomas at a loss as to how to handle the giant quick.
