Tridents eliminated with third loss

Social Share

The Barbados Tridents fell to their third straight loss today in the Champions League T20 cricket competition and were eliminated, while the Hobart Hurricanes booked their spot in the next round.

And the architect of their demise was one of their own – Shoaib Malik – who opted to play for the Hurricanes instead of the Tridents, the side he represented in the Caribbean Premier League T20.

Malik scored an unbeaten 39 as Hurricanes reached 117 for 4 in reply to Tridents’ 113 all out in 19.4 overs, winning by six wickets with ten balls remaining.

Earlier Jonathan Carter followed up his maiden T20 hundred with 42, but most of the other bats failed.

Summarised scores: Barbados Tridents 113 in 19.4 overs (J. Carter 42, D. Munaweera 18, J. Franklin 12, A. Hosein 12; X. Doherty 4-27, B. Hilfenhaus 2-14, D. Bollinger 2-27). Hobart Hurricanes 117-4 in 18.2 overs (S. Malik 39 n.o., J. Wells 23 n.o., A. Blizzard 21, T. Paine 18; A. Hosein 2-25). Hurricanes won by six wickets.
