Barbados Tridents 53 for 6 (Edwards 5-22) beat Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel 52 (Shakib 6-6) by 4 wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Only four batsmen reached double figures and two bowlers took five-fors in Barbados Trident's low-scoring four-wicket win against Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel in Bridgetown. The T20 match actually lasted just over 20 overs and only 105 runs were scored in all on the same ground where over 300 were scored in the opening match of the Caribbean Premier League.

Jason Holder accounted for two of the top three T&T batsmen, who fell within five overs after they elected to bat. It was a Shakib Al Hasan show from there on as he ran through the batting line up, dismissing the next six batsmen to finish with figures of 6 for 6 from his four overs.

The solo performance had started much earlier when he took the openers' catches off Holder and Shannon Gabriel. His spell included a triple-wicket maiden, the tenth over of the innings, in which he trapped Dwayne Bravo lbw with an arm ball for 5, got Nicolas Pooran caught at short leg for a duck, and then rattled Kevon Cooper's stumps on the last ball of the over. From 40 for 4, T&T were now 40 for 7. Shakib came back to dismiss Samuel Badree and Kevin O'Brien in his fourth over. Gabriel finished the innings with his second wicket and only two batsmen, Davy Jacobs and Ross Taylor, reached double figures.

Chasing only 53, Jonathan Carter gave Barbados a flying start smashing two sixes in the first over in which Sulieman Benn conceded 20 runs. But Fidel Edwards counterattacked by dismissing the openers in his first over with his swing and pace. Benn continued and had Shoaib Malik caught at second slip for 5. Barbados' hopes of finishing the chase easily were dashed further when Edwards got Umar Akmal caught at slip and took two more wickets, of Shakib and Kyle Mayers, in his third over to reduce Barbados to 39 for 6. However, they needed only 14 more and Ashley Nurse finished it off two overs later with a four over the midwicket boundary.

Barbados are at the top of the table with six points from three unbeaten matches.

    Good to see Shakib back in the top form with the ball. An all-rounder of this class is expected to per4m like that. 4 overs, a triple-wicket maiden, 6 wickets with an economy of 1.5 & also 2 catches of 2 openers! U can't expect better batting & fielding per4mance than this in T20! But to justify his all-round ability in T20, he must score some runs as well. He proved it in Test & One-day format. Despite a good spinner in all conditions in all formats, his T20 batting outside Asia is below the standard so far. Now it's time to prove his batting ability in T20 format all over the world.

    I agree. Remove the names of the countries and replace them with the names of the cities in which they're based. Tridents are well-constructed and should win if performances continues to be top shelf.

    I think they need to remove the countries from the names of the teams. "Trinidad" has its players on other countries. Narine, Badree, Pollard, Emrit, Dave Mohammed, Simmons, Ramdin.

    Now, really ppl should consider taking more players from BD since talent is plenty over there, just need more opportunities for the players, and what an example set by our knight SHAKIB , soooooo proud :D

    Amazing bowling by Edwards never gave up and almost won T&T the game form impossible situation. TnT need to get Barath in the team for any of the top 3 not playin him is ridiculous he deserves a shot especially when all 3 fail and he is more accomplished batsman than them anyway !

    Shakib proved why he is considered as the number one alrounder in several times.

  • POSTED BY on | August 5, 2013, 19:09 GMT

    I think, Shakib has to show his batting ability in T20s like his bowling to be a complete all rounder. Hope he will get get his form back in batting to help himself and his team. Good Luck , Shakib.

    Some cricket player is lucky all the time. No doubt ,Shakib is talented but he is extremely fortunate.Bangladesh adores his achievements.

    For Barbados, I would say, that they are a well-balanced team. Striking batasmen like Dwyne Smith, Malik, Pollard and more. In Bowling we see Shannon, Shakib, Holder and more, I hope this time Barbados wins the tournament. We are praising Shakib for his bowiling performances, but look at his batting its not even up to par or abot 20 or more. We would like to see more batting performances from Shakib.

    Congrats Shakib, very disappointed with the way the Red Steel approached their innings. Captain Bravo please try to win the last four games for us fans in Trinidad. Play each ball on it's merit respect good bowling and don't be intimidated by our fellow Trinidadians on the other teams. As a Trini I will support my home team but the Tridents and Amazon for the quality of Trinidadians in their squad and foreign based players look the toughest and might just go all the way. Come on RED STEEL attack with full force!

  • POSTED BY realthog on | August 4, 2013, 21:31 GMT

    Yes, an amazing performance from Shakib but, golly, that was a fast-bowling masterclass from Fidel Edwards. That's probably the best I've ever seen a fast bowler bowl.

    tri bad batting display was terrible but so was the LBW given to TAYLOR when it seems he was poised for a good score. barbados seems destined to lock horns with guyana in the finals.

    AMAZON WARRIORS all the way.

    @TheRisingTeam "1st man ofmatch award"? Not sure what you mean but this is actually his second one in the tournament. And I think asking batting tips from the one of the greatest batsman of all time is a bit simplistic way to look at a national team's player lifestyle, imo.

    If only Bangladesh prepare good turning pitches for their homes matches and how easier it will be to control the game and takes lots of wickets. They clearly have very good spinners. My advice for the New Zealand test series is to NOT prepare flat batting pitches otherwise you just making it difficult for yourself. Its not like New Zealand bar Vettori have any quality spinners whereas Bangladesh several very good ones. Playing abroad is good for these Bangladeshi cricketers since they will gain lots of experience, become much better players Internationally and give them a hell of a confidence. Like to see a few more besides only Tamim and Shakib playing all around the world. But excellent performance from Shakib, 6/6 is apparently the second best ever all-time bowling performance in T20 and based on his overall T20 stats.

  • POSTED BY TheRisingTeam on | August 4, 2013, 10:37 GMT

    What a performance by ball from Shakib yet again. He is truly showing his class to world as a cricketing all-rounder bat and/or ball. 2 man of match awards in a row WOW!!! in a franchise tournament as we all know filled with quality exciting players. He did the same thing in IPL last year despite sitting on the bench early on and missing half the games. As soon as he got his opportunity to play for KKR, picked up again 2 man of the match awards. But his batting has been a real worry now as he has so far played 13 T20 matches recently in England and so far in the Caribbean but only 2 of those matches resulting in decent contributions for the team(s). He is usually much better than this but then again it is T20 Cricket and there's not much time to settle in.

    Ironically a West Indian legendary all-rounder Sir Garfield Sobers was in Barbados for CPL so far and gave the 1st man of match award to Shakib. So what not better time to ask the man for some advice regarding batting.
