The Barbados Tridents have made a great start to the defence of their title, but there is a long way to go in CPL 15. Keep track of the performances of all of the Tridents’ players here!
Kieron Pollard: Pollard kept up his good form with the bat with a match winning 59 against the Tallawahs and has scored the fourth highest number of runs in the CPL tournament so far.
Runs: 283 (17 x 4; 16 x 6)
Strike Rate: 142.21
Econ Rate: 6.5
Dwayne Smith: Smith has been relatively productive, but his runs have not come at the rate at which we are accustomed as he has struggled to get bowlers to the boundary. With opening partner Dinesh Munaweera also scoring slowly, this has often left the Tridents a little behind the rate early on.
Runs: 224 (20 x 4; 8 x 6)
Strike Rate: 96.13
Ravi Rampaul: Has picked up just three wickets in the last six matches after a hot start to the competition. Fortunately the other bowlers have picked up the slack.
Econ Rate: 7.61
Jason Holder: The West Indian captain has racked up three decent scores in succession with the bat but hasn’t taken the wickets one would expect from a bowler of his calibre.
Econ Rate: 7.75
Run Outs: 2
Rayad Emrit: Emrit has been ultra consistent with the ball, taking ten wickets throughout the tournament. He’s been one of the pleasant surprises of the CPL with ball in hand.
Econ Rate: 6.35
Dilshan Munaweera: Munaweera, much like his opening partner Smith, has flattered to deceive in this competition. His runs just haven’t come quick enough, putting pressure on the batsmen coming in after and contributing to the relatively low scores the Tridents have been compiling.
Runs: 166 (18 x 4; 6 x 6)
Strike Rate: 101.84
Jonathan Carter: Carter has struggled since being promoted up the order scoring 0,6, 7 and 10 in his last four innings.
Runs: 94 (3 x 4; 6 x 6)
Strike Rate: 116.04
Justin Ontong: Replaced due to injury by Jeevan Mendis
Jeevan Mendis: Mendis finally got hit for a few runs against the Tallawahs, but picked up his first three wicket haul to compenstate. He’s been superb since replacing Justin Ontong.
Econ Rate: 5.16
Robin Peterson: Leads his side with 13 wickets in the competition, despite being an afterthought in the CPL draft this year. Has been one of the best bowlers in the tournament so far and has rarely had a bad game.
Econ Rate: 6.4
Akeal Hosein: Played two matches, but has yet to bat or bowl and picked up just a single catch.
Navin Stewart: Played a few matches, but his contributions were minimal.
Bowling figures: 2-0-22-0
Shai Hope: Yet to feature in the competition.
Kyle Corbin: Yet to feature in the competition.
Ashley Nurse: Yet to feature in the competition.
Shoaib Malik: Malik’s participation in the competition is due to be cut short due to his international commitments, and he has been badly missed. The Tridents haven’t been the same side since his departure.
Runs: 209 (14 x 4; 6 x 6)
Strike Rate: 133.97
