Barbados Tridents Crowned Winners Of CPL 2019

After winning the toss and opting to bat first in the finale encounter, Barbados Tridents got off to a decent start with the two openers, Alex Hales and Johnson Charles came out with a positive mindset. The duo added 43 runs for the first wicket stand before Hales got out for a 24-ball 28. Philip Salt came in at three and managed to get a three-ball duck.

Johnson Charles failed to convert yet another start of 39 runs into a bigger score as Tridents fell to 88 for 4. Tridents lost wickets at regular intervals, however, towards the end, the pair of Ashley Nurse and Jonathan Carter combined together to put up a crucial 63-run partnership. Carter scored an excellent half-century and Nurse was 19 not out as Tridents posted 171 for 6 in 20 overs.

In the second innings, Guyana Amazon Warriors lost two early wickets in the form of Chandrapaul Hemraj and Shimron Hetmyer within the first six overs of the powerplay. After these two wickets, Guyana Warriors kept on losing wickets on regular basis as the middle-order batters failed to convert their respective starts into big scores. The Tridents’ bowlers kept the opposition under constant check.

Brandon scored 43 runs off 33 balls that included of four fours and one six before getting dismissed by Ashley Nurse in the 11th over. After his dismissal, the rest of the batting collapse pretty soon as none of the batters took the responsibility to bat through the run-chase. Eventually, Guyana Amazon Warriors were restricted to 144 for 9 in 20 overs. For the Tridents, Raymon Reifer picked four wickets, while Nurse and Gurney took two scalps each.
