Pravin Tambe, a 48-year-old leg-spinner and the first Indian to feature in the Caribbean Premier League, claimed a maiden wicket in the T20 franchise event on Wednesday.

Tambe, playing for Trinbago Knight Riders, only got one over in the rain-affected game against the St Lucia Zouks.

However, it was an eventful one.

Najibullah Zadran hit a four off him before Tambe had the last laugh.

Najibullah misread a googly and gave Kieron Pollard a simple catch at cover as Tambe ended with figures of 1-15.

TKK won the game by six wickets under the D/L method.

Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan co-owns the Knight Riders franchise, which started its journey in the Indian Premier League as Kolkata Knight Riders in 2008.
