By Author CPL

We're three weeks into the Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, and the big scores just keep on coming.

Let's find out how the stars of the Caribbean Premier League have done over the past seven days Down Under...

BARBADOS TRIDENTS

The West Indies suffered a chastening 257-run defeat at the hands of South Africa, with captain Jason Holder going for 1-104 from his 10 overs after an astonishing assault from AB de Villiers, though Holder did score 56 from 48 balls in the Windies' reply. Dwayne Smith struck 31 off 34 and Jonathan Carter 10 from 20 in his first bat at the CWC.

GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS

Sri Lanka played twice, beating Bangladesh by 92 runs and then thrashing England by nine wickets three days later. Lasith Malinga took 3-35 from 9 overs and then 1-63 from 10, but Tillakaratne Dilshan was the star of the win over the Tigers with a splendid 161 not out from 146 balls, before going on to take 2-35 from 8 overs. Against England, Dilshan finished with figures of 1-35 from 8.2 overs and then hit 44 from 55 balls. Thisara Perera was also involved in Sri Lanka's two wins, taking 1-33 from 6.2 and then 1-55 from 8.1. The West Indians fared less well, with Lendl Simmons getting a second-ball duck v South Africa and Denesh Ramdin scoring 22 from 47 balls.

JAMAICA TALLAWAHS

Chris Gayle could not repeat his Zimbabwe heroics against South Africa, falling for 3 after taking 2-21 from 4 impressive overs in the field. Team-mates Andre Russell and Jerome Taylor struggled too, respectively taking 2-74 from 9 and 0-64 from 8, before scoring 0 and 15 with the bat against De Villiers' ruthless outfit. New Zealand's Daniel Vettori was a whole lot more impressive in their thrilling win over fellow hosts Australia, taking 2-41 from 10 superb overs, then being dismissed for 2 as the Kiwis crept over the line. Mahela Jayawardene had an easy week - he was not required to bat in either of Sri Lanka's two huge victories.

ST KITTS & NEVIS PATRIOTS

Pakistan got their campaign back on track with successive wins against Zimbabwe and UAE, with Shahid Afridi taking 0-53 from 10 overs and then 2-35 from 10, scoring 0 on his 35th birthday against the Zimbabweans before clubbing an unbeaten 21 off 7 balls as they smashed UAE in Napier. Marlon Samuels scored a 9-ball duck against South Africa after taking 0-14 from 2 overs, while Martin Guptill hit 11 from 14 balls in New Zealand's win over Australia.

ST LUCIA ZOUKS

Johnson Charles received a call-up to the West Indies Cricket World Cup squad after Darren Bravo's hamstring injury ruled him out of the rest of the tournament, so the Zouks star will be hoping to get involved in the next few days. Darren Sammy's 7 overs against South Africa cost 0-50 and he could only score 5 in their reply, while Bangladesh star Shakib Al Hasan bowled 10 overs 0-55 against Pakistan, before hitting 46 from 59 balls in their ultimately doomed reply. Ross Taylor could only score 1 as New Zealand beat Australia in a low-scoring contest.

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO RED STEEL

Darren Bravo's World Cup has been ended by an injured hamstring, so he has flown home. Sulieman Benn's 10 overs against a rampant South Africa went for 79 without a wicket, and he scored 1 in West Indies' reply.

* DID NOT FEATURE

The Tallawahs' Nikita Miller, the Patriots' Sheldon Cottrell and the Zouks' Kemar Roach all sat out West Indies' defeat against South Africa and will be hoping to feature, along with Charles, against India in Perth on Friday.
