'You can always capitalise at the end' - Colin Munro reflects on record-breaking CPL season

Colin Munro has revealed the mindset he's maintained in a record-breaking campaign for the Trinbago Knight Riders which he capped off with a man-of-the-match performance today.

Along with winning the final against the Guyana Amazon Warriors today, the left-hander was also named in the tournament team and became the first batsman in tournament history to break the 500 run mark in a single CPL season.

Munro finished with 567 runs from 13 innings at an average of 51.54 while generating a strike rate of 140.

He finished 110 runs clear of the second best run producer - fellow Black Cap Glenn Phillips - by 110 runs.

The 31-year-old said after the match he's had a constant approach to the tournament which helped him generate the record numbers.

"On these surfaces you can't just go from ball one as I've done in the past.

"I just tried to get myself under way before I took too many risks, get myself set for 20-30 balls and you can always capitalise at the end."

Munro finished the CPL in Hollywood fashion, knocking the game-winning runs for Trinbago to backward point before getting swamped by his teammates.

He even took a moment to stand and appreciate the standing ovation from fans at Brian Lara Stadium who attended the final.

"There's a few more supporters out here for me than there is back home I reckon," he said.

Munro was selected in Black Caps' T20 and ODI squads to face Pakistan in the United Atab Emirates in November before a full summer at home.
