Romario Shepherd and Imran Tahir send defending CPL champions Barbados Tridents crashing out

The Tridents' batting woes continued as they slumped to 89 for 9 followed by curious tactics in the field

Scorecard summary
Barbados Tridents89/9(20 overs)
Guyana Amazon Warriors90/4(14.2 overs)

So that means all four semifinalists are confirmed, with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Barbados Tridents eliminated. Catch us for the next game, and watch out for Peter's report. From me here, goodbye!

Romario Shepherd is the Man of the Match. "I'm really proud tonight. We had a job on our hands that we knew we needed to execute. I enjoyed bowling at the death. That's the time I have to execute those yorkers, so I enjoy doing that. I'm really relieved we're into the semis, having executed our game plans for the fans back home."

It was a really mediocre performance from the Tridents, not befitting the importance of the game, and they've paid the price

pulls down to midwicket, and while he doesn't get all of it, that's enough to get them a couple. GAW have beaten the Tridents by 6 wickets, and knocked them out of the semi-finals

greeted by a slog down to cow corner, and this time the footwork from the boundary fielder fails to prevent the boundary. Just eight required now

round the wicket, and Ross Taylor's slog sweep fails to connect. Just 3 off the over, but that's all right for GAW

12.5
Rashid Khan to Taylor, no run

strayed down legside, lucky Taylor didn't get any bat on the little hoick he was attempting

that was a genuine edge, and a second slip would have found that straightforward. First slip lunges to his left, but it's not quite there for him, and third man cuts it off

angling away from the lefty, who crunches this through point, but only manages to get one to the deep fielder

nice line around fourth stump. Thick outside edge from Taylor helps it down to third man

tapped and tried to run, looked pretty exasperated when the non-striker turns him down. Thought that was on, personally
