MAN OF THE MATCH: JASON HOLDER

CLICK HERE FOR THE SCORECARD FROM TRIDENTS v RED STEEL

 
The Barbados Tridents made it three wins out of three in the 2015 Hero Caribbean Premier League as they blew the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel away with another stunning display at the Kensington Oval.
 
Jason Holder was destroyer-in-chief for the defending champions, the West Indies ODI captain producing a devastating spell of fast bowling after the Red Steel had won the toss and elected to bat.
 
They were a shambles at 1-1, 2-2, 3-3, 3-4 and 20-5, Holder taking 3-11 from four hostile overs, including the wickets of the dangerous Kamran Akmal and Darren Bravo.
 
Dwayne Bravo (30) and Jason Mohammed (20) tried to steady the ship for the shell-shocked visitors, putting on 46 for the sixth wicket, before Bravo slapped a Jeevan Mendis long-hop straight to Navin Stewart at cover, much to the Red Steel skipper's disgust.
 
They managed to see out their overs but only just, finishing on 95-9 - and the Tridents wasted no time setting about their task as Dwayne Smith and Dilshan Munaweera looked like men in a hurry.
 
Munaweera smashed 39 off 28 and Smith 33 off 29, before they were dismissed in successive balls by Sulieman Benn, both holing out in the deep either side of a drinks break.
 
It didn't make any difference as the Tridents cruised towards their target regardless, Shoaib Malik and Jonathan Carter seeing them home with a massive 40 balls to spare.
 
Kieron Pollard's side play their final home game against the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots on Saturday, while the Red Steel aren't in action again until Sunday 4 July when they meet the Guyana Amazon Warriors in St Kitts.
