Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents( Preview)
Jason Mohammed and Dwayne Smith helped Guyana Amazon Warriors script a thrilling victory over the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots by chasing down 165 with one ball to spare.
The Patriots got off to a very bad start in the first innings as Sohail Tanvir got rid of Lendl Simmons upfront. Du Plessis, Hodge and Thomas fought hard to put up a respectable total on board, but 164 was always going to be less on a small-ish Warner Park. For the Warriors, Sohail Tanvir bowled impeccably well upfront and during the death overs.
But the small ground and Dwayne Smith’s imperious batting at the top of the order ensured that despite a few hiccups, The Warriors were able to muster a first win.

Moving onto to tomorrow’s game, the Trinbago Knight Riders play for a second time in three days and would be hoping to get a win on board as a loss tomorrow could mean that they would fall well behind the pack.
They take on one of the favourites of the tournament in Barbados Tridents. Boasting of players like ABD and Pollard, Tridents would be looking to go deep into this tournament and what better way than to take on an opponent who has already been humbled early on into the tournament.
But Trinbago are no mere pushovers. They probably have the richest and the most fearsome overseas talent combined with some of the best West Indian T20 players. The first loss should be just a minor blip for them and they’ll be raring to correct that initial stutter with a victory in tomorrow’s game.
