Khary Pierre: West Indian Cricketer
Khary Pierre is a left-arm spinner from Trinidad and Tobago. He featured for the West Indies B team in the 2018 Global T20 Challenge Canada, where he highlighted his raw talent. After a few incredible performances for the Trinbago Knight Riders in the 2018 CPL, Pierre will no doubt be pushing for international selection.

Khary Pierre’s First-Class Debut
Pierre’s First-Class debut for Trinidad and Tobago was curtailed by rain. Only 92 overs were bowled in the match, with Trinidad and Tobago reaching 287/8 at the end of them. Rahkeem Cornwall, playing for the Leeward Islands, picked up two wickets and Hayden Walsh picked up three. Pierre came in to bat an number ten and ended on 15*. His little cameo included one four and even one six. So, while Pierre did not get a chance to star with the ball, his batting looked decent.
Khary Pierre: Global T20 Challenge Canada
Khary Pierre went with the West Indies B team to Canada in 2018 to play in the Global T20 Challenge. He had a decent tournament, playing six matches for his side. Pierre’s best performance actually came in his first match of the tournament, against the Montreal Tigers. Opening the bowling alongside Obed McCoy, Pierre ended up with figures of 4-0-20-2. He picked up the wicket of Moises Henriques and helped his side to restrict the Tigers to 184. The West Indies B team then chased this down, thanks to fifties from Brandon King and Nicholas Pooran and a quick cameo from Shamar Springer. Pierre also picked up two wickets against the Tigers, when the West Indies B team played them again. This time the Caribbean side lost, but Pierre still had a great game. A nice 62 from Shamar Springer, combined with another cameo from Nicholas Pooran, Fabian Allen and Kavem Hodge, took the West Indies B to 162. Pierre then took 4-0-25-2 with the ball, but the Tigers still got over the line. It was a good tournament for the left-arm spinner.
Khary Pierre: Caribbean Premier League
Pierre carried on his great T20 form into the 2018 CPL. Playing for the Trinbago Knight Riders, Pierre took 4-0-19-2 in his first match of the tournament, against the Jamaica Tallawahs. He opened the bowling alongside Ali Khan and he struck in his first over. Khary Pierre got the ball turn steeply and it was a mesmerizing spell. He fared similarly in his second match, against the Barbados Tridents. Like the previous match, Pierre opened the bowling and this time took a wicket off his first ball. He bowled Dwayne Smith the first ball and then ran out Shamar Springer off the following delivery. This time he ended with figures of 4-0-29-2. Pierre had a positive impact in each of the matches he played.
After his high-impact 2018 CPL, Kharry Pierre will be one of the players to watch out for in the 2019 CPL. The Trinbago Knight Riders will no doubt require his services again and he could be a regular starter for them. It’ll be interesting to see how the spinner fares in the 2018/19 West Indian domestic season.
