St Lucia Zouks’ dreadful run in the ongoing edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) continued on Friday (September 20) as they suffered a crushing 71-run defeat against the Barbados Tridents. However, the highlight of the game was the one-handed stunner by Jonathan Carter, which left the local fans at the Darren Sammy Stadium in shock.
The incident took place in the eighth over of the Zouks’ innings, when Carter surprised everyone with his ‘Superman’ effort to send the former Windies skipper Daren Sammy back to the hut.
It was the first ball of the eight over, as Sammy clipped a Raymon Reifer delivery towards the third man. But, what happened next stunned everyone as Carter drifted towards his left and leaped in the air before completing a sensational catch.
