Tridents rule CPL

MAYBE THE fans didn’t want it to be decided this way.
But that doesn’t mean the Barbados Tridents didn’t fully enjoy their first Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T20 cricket title in St Kitts/Nevis last night.
Captain Kieron Pollard and his band of merry men danced in the rain to the sounds of Rupee’s hit song I’m A Bajan, after the Tridents defeated the Guyana Amazon Warriors by eight runs based on the Duckworth/Lewis mathematical system in an anti-climactic final of the popular tournament.
A heavy downpour, the second of the match, proved the most decisive, breaking the hearts of the Warriors, who needed another 46 runs from 25 balls to reach their target of 153, when the day-night game was abandoned at its 8:30 p.m. deadline.
