Red Force get the better of Pride
BARBADOS’ PRIDE took a dent last night.
Trinidad and Tobago Red Force will hold the title of limited overs kings of the Caribbean for another 12 months after whipping Barbados Pride by 72 runs to successfully defend their NAGICO Super50 title and lift the Clive Lloyd trophy at Queen’s Park Oval.
The hosts, who had to deal with the agony of defeat in 2014 when the Pride won the crown, ensured history did not repeat itself this time around with Darren Bravo hitting 97 off 104 balls as the Red Force posted the highest total of the tournament – 270 for seven.
And just like last year’s final, the Red Force bowlers decimated the opponents, who could only muster 198 all out in 42.5 overs.
