Tridents give it away
MOHALI – Jonathan Carter’s brilliant, unbeaten hundred was in vain as critical errors in the field proved Barbados Tridents undoing, as they went down to Cape Cobras in a nerve-wracking Super Over in the Champions League Twenty20 here yesterday.
The left-handed Carter romped his way to a T20 career-best 111 not out, an innings that powered Tridents to a competitive 174 for eight off their 20 overs and helped them overcome a terrible start and middle order collapse at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium.
He faced 68 balls and lashed ten fours and five sixes, adding an all-important 75 for the third wicket with opener Dilshan Munaweera whose 42 with five fours and two sixes came from 21 balls, to lift Tridents from the doldrums of seven for two in the third over.
With Jeevan Mendis the only other batsman to reach double figures with 10, Carter carried the Tridents innings admirably as wickets tumbled around him.
