St. Lucia Zouks v Barbados Tridents

Beausejour Stadium, St Lucia

Sammy: Best has a lot to offer despite on-field clash
Story Created: Jul 30, 2014 at 11:23 PM ECT

St Lucia Zouks Captain Darren Sammy says temperamental Barbadian fast bowler Tino Best needs to live up to his seniority as a West Indian international following his on-field clash with Pakistani all-rounder Shoaib Malik last week.

 The incident happened last Wednesday in Barbados during a Caribbean Premier League Match between the Barbados Tridents and the Zouks.
Best was fined 60 per cent of his match fee while Shoaib has been fined half his match fee for the incident which occurred during the Tridents innings.
“Tino is a special character. The more I’ve played with him, the more I grew to understand him and the person he is,” Sammy said.

“In any cricket game, you want to play in the true spirit of the game. I hope it gets better because he’s not a young man. But he’s still integral to our team.”
The showdown between Best and Shoaib occurred after Best was put to the sword by Dwayne Smith, who made an unbeaten 110, and the Pakistani right-hander who stroked 49.
Shoaib struck the Barbadian pacer for two successive boundaries in the 15th over of the innings before being bowled, leading to some physical contact between the two players and an exchange of words.

Sammy, also the West Indies T20 captain, says Best still has a lot to offer the regional game.
“Once we control him and use his head a bit more wisely, he’s a good asset for us. The cricket is being played on the field. We’ve spoken to Tino and I see all of you [the media] all pointing towards Tino Best, but there were two guys involved in the incident. It was not just one person,” said Sammy.

“Everybody keeps jumping on Tino, Tino, Tino. It takes two hands to clap. We’ve dealt with it the best way possible and we’re moving on now.”
Meantime Zouks franchise mentor, the former West Indies pacer Andy Roberts says he is worried that indiscipline in West Indies cricket could erode their talent-pool.
Roberts has pointed out that Zouks needed to focus on consistency and playing well in pressure situations after a string of defeats in the tournament thus far.
“Not for a lack of trying, I’ve spoken to Tino. Many people have, over and over again. Cricket is also a mental game, not just about talent,” said Roberts.

“This sort of thing could hurt Tino’s career on a regional and international level. It’s been happening for years now and he needs to learn. Back when I played, we didn’t do much talking. We just did our jobs with the ball and had a glare”.
Zouks, who have lost all four matches played in the second edition of the CPL, will be seeking to revive their campaign in St Lucia this weekend.

Pollard late salvo downs Zouks
ESPNcricinfo staff
July 31, 2014

Barbados Tridents 168 for 7 (Holder 48, Pollard 37*, Jordan 3-39) beat St Lucia Zouks 167 for 7 (Tanvir 50*, Charles 50) by three wickets

Kieron Pollard strikes it big against Ray Jordan, St Lucia Zouks v Barbados Tridents, CPL 2014, Gros Islet, July 31, 2014

Kieron Pollard's timely return to form helped Barbados Tridents register their fourth win while keeping St Lucia Zouks winless in a tightly-fought match in Gros Islet.

Sixty-four runs were required in 44 balls when No. 7 Pollard arrived at the crease, but given his poor run of scores - his highest in previous 15 T20 innings was 21 - Zouks were slightly ahead. Sohail Tanvir bowled a miserly 16th over giving away just two runs to turn the equation further in Zouks' favour. Forty-seven were required off the last four overs. Pollard managed to pick two sixes in two overs bowled by Ray Jordan, Zouks' most-successful bowler on the day, to bring Tridents 15 away from the target at the start of the 20th over.

The first ball from Tanvir was a wide down the leg side but the next was pulled over the boundary by Pollard. The next could have turned the match again as three men at deep cover converged under a skier, but a drop resulted in two runs. The fourth ball was slogged through midwicket for a boundary to spark charged celebrations from Pollard, unbeaten on 37 off 22.

The foundation of the chase was laid by another enterprising innings. Fast bowler Jason Holder was promoted to No. 3 for the second time in his T20 career and responded with a 30-ball 48 that included five fours and two sixes. Forty of those runs came in the Powerplay which saw Tridents score 66. It was an ideal start in the chase of 168 and although Jordan's two wickets in his third over gave Zouks hope of their first win, Pollard's calm innings ensured their wait would continue.

Zouks had been lifted by fifties from Johnson Charles and Tanvir after a troubled start. They were 14 for 3 in the second over. Charles added 74 for the fourth wicket with Liam Sebastien before being dismissed by Shoaib Malik in the 14th over. But it was Tanvir's blitz that surprised Tridents. He hit six sixes - three of them in the 20th over, bowled by Pollard - to reach 50 off 19 and lift the total by 34 runs in the last two overs.

Pollard delivers for Tridents
St Lucia Zouks lose fifth straight

Story Created: Aug 1, 2014 at 9:27 PM ECT

Inspirational captain Kieron Pollard lashed the winning runs as Barbados Tridents won a last-over thriller here late Thursday night, condemning winless St Lucia Zouks to their fifth straight loss in the Limacol Caribbean Premier League.
Chasing 168 for victory at the Beausejour Cricket Stadium, Tridents overhauled their target with two balls remaining, with Pollard providing a late flurry to finish unbeaten on 37 off 22 balls.

The game remained open once Tridents entered the last over requiring 15 to win. Left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir sent down a wide first ball to hand the advantage to Tridents and Pollard clobbered the first legitimate delivery over midwicket for six, to reduce the equation to eight runs from five balls.
He gathered a couple off the next delivery and scrambled two byes off the third, leaving the Tridents with the straightforward task of getting four runs from three deliveries.
Pollard, who has been short of runs in the tournament, left nothing to chance, however, as he smashed Tanvir to the midwicket boundary to seal victory and spark celebrations among the visiting Tridents side.

The win was Tridents’ fourth and it put them on eight points alongside title-holders Jamaica Tallawahs and last year’s losing finalists Guyana Amazon Warriors. However, the Bridgetown-based franchise sit fourth in the tables on net run rate.
Overall, Pollard crunched two fours and three sixes, and put on a crucial 38 off 23 balls for the seventh wicket with Kyle Mayers who made 13.
His captain’s innings was required after Tridents, cruising at 85 for two in the ninth, suddenly lost four wickets for 30 runs to lose their way.

Man-of-the-Match Jason Holder punched a top score of 48 after being promoted to number three while Shoaib Malik chipped in with 22, as Tridents made a strong start.
Talismanic opener Dwayne Smith hammered a four to long-on off the first ball of the run chase but succumbed to the third of the over from fast bowler Tino Best, trapped lbw with the score on ten.
Holder and Dowrich then added 56 for the second wicket to repair the innings, with Holder striking five fours and two sixes off 30 balls and the diminutive Dowrich getting just nine.
The right-handed Holder provided a glimpse of his batting talent, with two back-to-back off-side sixes off pacer Ray Jordan’s first over, the fifth of the innings. Jordan finished with three for 39.

Dowrich perished in the sixth over, top-edging a pull to Henry Davids at mid-wicket off Tanvir and Holder and Neil McKenzie (zero) followed in successive deliveries in the ninth over from Jordan, to set up a tense finish.
Earlier, opener Johnson Charles and Tanvir both scored even fifties as Zouks rallied to 167 for seven off their 20 overs, after choosing to bat.

\Charles faced 40 balls and struck four fours and three sixes while Tanvir provided a blinder at the end, lashing six sixes in an unbeaten innings off a mere 19 balls.
Liam Sebastien weighed in with 33 from 39 balls while Pollard (two for 30) and Mayers (two for 39) finished with two wickets apiece.
