Tridents trample Warriors
THERE WAS NO controversy this time.
Barbados Tridents, all confidence and aggression, rolled over the Guyana Amazon Warriors by 49 runs in a thrilling start to the Hero Caribbean Premier League T20 cricket tournament last night.
Before a standing room only crowd at Kensington Oval, the champions defended their total of 158 for six to the delight of screaming hometown fans in a repeat of last year’s final.
Skipper Kieron Pollard led the way for the Tridents with a typically swashbuckling 48 made in just 26 balls with five fours and two towering sixes.
The Warriors could only muster 109, in the face of some tight bowling from the Tridents by Ravi Rampaul (3-16) and Robin Peterson (3-31).
