Trinbago Knight Riders 130 for 6 (McCullum 66, Irfan 2-24) beat Barbados Tridents 128 for 8 (Hope 42, Fawad 2-13, Bravo 2-23, Pierre 2-29) by four wickets
Trinbago Knight Riders joined Jamaica Tallawahs at the top of the table on eight points after a dominant display in a four-wicket win over Barbados Tridents. The final margin painted the Tridents in a flattering light, but they were out of the game by the second over when left-arm spinner Khary Pierre singlehandedly wrecked the Tridents top order with two wickets and a run-out off his own bowling in the space of four balls.
From 3 for 3, Tridents scratched their way to 128 for 8, a total that was easily overhauled by a brisk half-century from Brendon McCullum. Trinbago needed five runs to win off the last 25 balls when Denesh Ramdin and McCullum fell off consecutive deliveries, a minor pair of blemishes in what was a comprehensive team performance.
