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.

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

Shakib wasn't good at first. I knew he will perform next.

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.

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.
