Barbados Tridents (BT) were up against Guyana Amazon Warriors (GAW) on September 2nd at the Brian Lara Cricket Stadium in Trinidad in the 22nd match of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2020). Guyana is located at the second spot in the points table after winning 6 out of 10 matches in the league stage while Barbados is placed at second last spot as they could register a victory in just two matches out of the nine matches they have played in the tournament so far.
The match commenced with Tridents batting first as they won the toss. However, they could put up a mere target of only 93 runs on the board owing to the brilliant bowling efforts by Naveen-ul-Haq and Kevin Sinclair who bowled a spell of 4/14 and 2/13 respectively.
While defending a small target, Tridents got their first breakthrough quite early in the match as their spinner Rashid took the wicket of the opening batsman, Kevin Sinclair, for just three runs. In the fifth over, Sinclair wanted to come out of his crease and charge at Rashid, but he missed the delivery completely which shattered his stumps.

Meanwhile, the celebration done by the Afghanistan Stalwart caught the attention of the viewers. The Afghanistan spinner twirled his finger, like he usually does after a wicket, and then took a jibe at the batsman as he tried to imitate the Guyana all-rounder’s celebration. Sinclair is known for his unique and trademark somersault celebration after picking up a wicket.
