Colin Munro, the New Zealander, is considered one of the best T20 batsmen in the world. From the time he joined TKR in 2016, he has topped the charts in many ways ever since. In his debut season, he became the first overseas player to score a ton in CPL history, and in 2018, he finished as the highest run-getter in the tournament. In Trinbago Knight Riders' title-winning campaigns in 2017 and 2018, Munro proved to be a vital cog in the playing XI, finishing on top of the run-getters list for us in both seasons. He has been a part of the Trinbago Knight Riders team for two years now, and TKR is confident that he will continue to be a key player for them.
