We often call the Caribbean Premier League the biggest celebration in sport and the verdict proves itself from time to time. Another day in the 2021 CPL season and another reason for entertainment, this time provided by Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik who made the move from Barbados and now represents the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the CPL T20.
He hit yesterday and found it very hard to score points, he got a very scratchy 12 ball 5 which is super slow for a T20 game. The super experienced T20 veteran wasn’t able to bring out some of his best shots yesterday, but he still gave us all a reason to smile and even laugh. While hitting, Malik was found to have stuck a fork to his shoe, which he was unaware of for a while.
The plastic fork seems to have got stuck under his boot as he walked to the field, and it was captured well by the stump camera, too. It wasn’t until later that he realized it, saw it, and the game took a little break as he took a fork out of his shoe. Images went viral on social media and Malik was also heavily trolled by his fans and followers.

In the end, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots went on to defeat the Guyana Amazon Warriors in CPL 2021 Match 5 and this fork certainly brought Malik and his Guyana franchise no luck. After this loss, Guyana moved up to fourth on the CPL 2021 points list, with just 1 win in their 3 games so far this season.
In other news, we found online rumors of Nicholas Pooran and 2 other Guyana team players being investigated for match fixing after a series of wide and poor deliveries which led to them ultimately losing the match.
