The Nation’s Online Editor Sherrylyn Toppin looks at What’s Trending today in Barbados. The Barbados Tridents won the 2014 Limacol Caribbean Premier League T20 Cricket Tournament tonight, beating the Guyana Amazon Warriors by eight runs on the Duckworth/Lewis method. When the rain came, the Amazon Warriors were 107 for four, needing 46 runs off 25 balls. Play never resumed. Many people were left stunned by the decision not to play the remaining overs after the rain stopped. Online readers debated whether it was a “fair” victory. Barbara Williams: Rain or no rain, we win. Barbados to the world. Quint Essence: [It] wasn't a fair game Veronica Wiltshire Harewood: Wunna did jumping and shouting in "LIL GEORGETOWN" down there in River Road, running all bout wid wunna flag. How come it ain’t fair only because we were ahead ah wunna? Dionne Honeydip Brewster: Barbados to the world and by the way you guys couldn’t win anyway. Charissa Williams Reid: Unfair game David Gooding: Hush we won fair and square. Ricardo Colucci: It’s true Guyana have a real good team, and the captaincy was great but you can’t be a bat man and umpire in the same game; neither can you control the weather or change rules just because you want to win. So all you sore losers and Trident haters go watch another sport and leave the cricket to people that really love the game regardless to who come out the winner. Marcaline Moseley: I am not a fan of the D/L system but congrats to the Barbados Tridents. Rodnee Clarke: It amazes me how people getting on because Barbados won by the DL method. I wonder if Guyana had won by DL what wunna be saying… and who was watching the game would see that Barbados had the upper hand. Waveney Haynes: It always stand with pride. Barbara Williams: Yes it is fair we had a better score than them at the same stage. Khadijah Mccollin: Congrats to the Tridents.
