Tridents fall again

So much for home advantage.

And Barbados Tridents just can’t seem to get the measure of the Trinbago Knight Riders.

The Tridents’ campaign in the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) was left in the balance last night after crashing to back-to-back weekend defeats before their home fans at Kensington Oval.

If Saturday’s six-wicket loss to St Kitts and Nevis Patriots was disappointing, a four-wicket reversal to Trinbago Knight Riders before a packed crowd of close of 9 000 was even more depressing.

Choosing to bat first, the Tridents got little outside of a third wicket partnership of 70 between Shai Hope and Nicolas Pooran and a total of 128 for eight was always going to be inadequate.

Seven-foot left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Irfan, fresh from an amazing four-over spell in which he conceded a solitary run the previous day, struck two early blows to give the crowd something to shout about, but the Knight Riders, aided by two missed catches, comfortably completed the target for the loss of six wickets in 16.3 overs.
