Put into bat first, TKR used the given opportunity and put up a big score on the board. In the 7th over from Dominic Drakes, Russell smashed the first six on the third delivery and also sent the next three deliveries for the maximum and brought up his half-century in only 17 balls as well. In the 8th over, when Jon-Russ Jaggesar came to bowl, Andre Russell hit sixes on his first balls as well. He then went on to smash a boundary on the third ball as well. And, St Kitts finally dismissed Russell who got caught by Duan Jansen on the last ball of the over as well.

“It’s just about trying to generate excitement and interest. It’s like what’s going on with golf right now – you have to look at things through a different lens sometimes. This is about a totally new audience. We’re very much going after the younger generation,” CPL CEO Pete Russell was quoted as telling ESPNcricinfo. “Our plan is to do four a year, that’s the starting point. Potentially, you’d like to have three in the Caribbean and one elsewhere. We’d like to play one internationally somewhere: if I could take the 6ixty to Vegas, that would be a dream ticket.”
