LAUDERHILL – Barbados Tridents started the 2017 Caribbean Premier League campaign on a winning note yesterday.

A dramatic batting collapse by the Jamaica Tallawahs middle order, instigated by some accurate bowling, was key to Kieron Pollard’s team emerging victorious by 12 runs at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium.

Despite losing Kumar Sangakkara in the first over of their run-chase, the Tallawahs appeared on track to chase down the Tridents’ total of 142, with Lendl Simmons anchoring the innings.

However, the Tridents bowlers never let the Tallawahs get away in the first half of the chase and although the Tallawahs seemed to be in command they always required an acceleration. That burst never came. (CPL)
