David Wiese’s quickfire 40 proved futile as the Barbados Tridents went down by six wickets to the Guyana Warriors in the CPL.
Shoaib Malik, who ended unbeaten on 55, was the only one who showed up in support. They put on 48 for the third wicket, when Wiese fell after 13 overs, having scored three fours and a six among the 31 balls he faced.
At 97-3, Shoaib at least made sure the Tridents played out the overs: the five players who came and went thereafter faced just 19 balls between them as they scraped together a total of 142 runs.
The Warriors put on 92 in 10 overs for the first wicket and won with 10 balls to spare. Marchant de Lange was sorely tested again, going for 18 off two overs. He hasn’t yet found his rhythm, for in his first match, he went for 34 off two.
Across the ocean in the English Natwest T20 Blast, Jacques Rudolph‘s Glamorgan were let off the hook by rain. In a match shortened to 14 overs, they managed 101 all out in 13.2 under the onslaught of a 19-year-old left-arm medium pacer, George Garton, who took 4-16 off three overs. Colin Ingram was one of the more ‘prolific’ batsmen, scoring 10 off seven, while Rudolph returned with 6.
Sussex were 30-1 after 4.1 overs when the rain came down and there was no result.
