Barbados Tridents are back to winning ways as Wayne Parnell’s all-round brilliance helped the side overcome Trinbago Knight Riders in the 29th game played in Caribbean Premier League.
Trident could only get 136 runs from 20 overs after being sent to bat first on the surface. Tridents were reeling at one stage with 62 for 7 after 9.2 overs. Wayne Parnell came to the crease and added 48 runs with Shamar Springer to see Tridents push their score beyond 100-run mark. Parnell remained unbeaten till the end as he scored 44 runs off 35 balls. He smashed three sixes in his innings to see Tridents post a modest total on the board.
The target was not a stiff one but Tridents produced a clinical bowling performance to win the game by 16 runs. Wayne Parnell made early breakthroughs as left-arm quick dismissed Sunil Narine and Colin Munro in his early spell. Brendon McCullum scored 29 runs but forced to retire after an injury.
Darren Bravo and wicket-keeper Dinesh Ramdin also could not produce anything as Trinbago slumped to 67 for 5 after 11.3 overs. Dwayne Bravo and Javon Searles played well but it was not enough as Trinbago received their second defeat of the competition.
