Tridents limited to 152-6
WARNER PARK, St Kitts – The Barbados Tridents were restricted to 152 for six against the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the final of the Caribbean Premier League T20 this evening.
The loss of opener William Perkins (0) and Jason Holder (0) in the first three overs off the bowling of Krishmar Santokie, left them reeling on eight for two.
Dwayne Smith steadied the ship, but it was slow going for his 59 off 52 balls. It was sprinkled with six fours and three sixes.
He posted an 88-run stand with Shoaib Malik to see the Tridents close to the century mark, but when he fell, it was another dip in scoring.
Captain Kieron Pollard faced one ball, caught and bowled by Sunil Narine and Raymon Reifer went for five, bowled by one which sneaked through after he got through the shot too early.
A few rain delays also halted any momentum, but Malik saw them to the end, scoring 55 not out off 42 overs. He hit four fours and two sixes to push the scoring rate.
Jeevan Mendis was also unbeaten on 15.
Santokie took three for 19 and Narine two for 20.
Summarised scores: Barbados Tridents 152-6 in 20 overs (Dwayne Smith 59, Shoaib Malik 55 n.o., J. Mendis 15 n.o.; K. Santokie 3-19, S. Narine 2-20) vs Guyana Amazon Warriors.
