Barbados Tridents won their second CPL title. They won their maiden Trophy in 2014 and now, second title in 2019. Captain Jason Holder lifted the glitzy trophy in colourful ceremony.
However, journey of Tridents in the beginning of the season was not good, they lost 5 of 8 matches but later, they revived and kept on winning rest of matches and fixed spot in first qualifier.
Early, in the evening on 12th October, Jason Holder won the toss and opted to bat first. They started well and made 43 runs partnership for first wicket. Johnson Charles and Alex Hales made 39 and 28 runs but middle order failed to maintain that pace and lost quick wickets.
Thereafter, Jonathan Carter and Ashley Nurse over turned the wheel of fortune by their explosive inning and helped Tridents to go beyond 170 runs score. Tridents managed 171/6 in 20 overs.
In attempt to chase 172 runs’ target, Warriors kept on struggle since beginning. However, Brandon King (43 runs) continued to make runs from one end but fall of wickets from other end was unstoppable. Hemraj, Hetmyer and Malik added only 15 runs.
However, Nicholas Pooran (24), Sherfane Rutherford (15) and Keemo Paul (25) tried to manage further and brought back his team in the match but that effort were not enough. Warriors could reach 144/ 9 in 20 overs and lost the final by 27 runs.
Raymon Reifer did excellent bowling and played key role in destruction of Warriors. He grabbed 4 for 24 runs while as Harry Gurney and Ashley Nurse shared 2 wickets each for 24 and 17 runs.
