Like Ali Khan, Khary Pierre proved to be a fantastic young asset for the TKR family in the 2018 season. The wily left-arm spinner not only bagged wickets regularly, but also bowled with a miserly economy of 5.65 through the season to cripple oppositions. Pierre's good show for TKR consequently earned him a place in Windies A and the senior man's T20I squads.
Last year, in November, Pierre earned a national call-up for Windies' tour of India, where he made his first appearance in the first T20I in Kolkata's iconic Eden Gardens. Overall, he has made 4 appearances in the international arena so far, with a long journey lying ahead of him.
27-year-old Pierre is one of the many local boys in the Trinbago Knight Riders side and has played 16 first-class matches so far, taking 37 wickets at an average of 27.67, and a miserly economy of 2.62. In List-A cricket, he has 39 wickets in 26 matches, bagged at an average of 24.97.
Pierre made his CPL debut in 2017, and has since become a vital cog in TKR's bowling attack. He was retained by the franchise in the 2019 Player Drafts, and in the absence of Fawad Ahmed, who he bowled in tandem with last year, Pierre could be spearheading the spin attack for the defending champions.
Pierre showed excellent form in the exhibition match played at the Queen’s Park Oval in the lead up to the 2019 CPL, where, playing for Pollard XI, he gave away just seven runs in four overs and bagged the wicket of Lendl Simmons early on.
