“A game that literally had nothing in it. I don’t think any keeper was massively under pressure or anything like that and then, suddenly, the game explodes with seven bookings, two red cards. We lose the game 2-0 and its a disappointing feeling.”

“We didn’t deserve to win.” Trinbago Knight Riders skipper Kieron Pollard didn’t pull his punches and delivered a dose of brutal honesty in his post-match comments on Thursday night after the home team fell to an excruciating 12-run loss to Barbados Tridents in the Hero Caribbean Premier League semifinal at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in south Trinidad.

Trinbago Knight Riders’ (TKR) dream of vying for a historic hat-trick of Caribbean Premier League (CPL) titles were shattered mainly in part by Player of the Match Ashley Nurse and Raymon Reifer, who both scored 24 not out and captured two wickets apiece to lead Barbados Tridents to victory by 12 runs in the tournament’s second qualification.

The Guyana Amazon Warriors will be hoping to rewrite the history books today as they attempt to finish the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League T20 with a perfect win record and triumph in the tournament for the first time in what will be their fifth trip to the grand finale.
