Bridgetown (Barbados): July 24, 2013

A century by Dwayne Smith fired Barbados Tridents to their second win of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), with a convincing 29-run triumph over St Lucia Zouks on Wednesday.

Smith stroked an unbeaten 110 as the Tridents piled up 186 for two at the end of their innings, after being sent in at Kensington Oval under an overcast sky, according to inputs from the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC). Pakistani Shoaib Malik chipped in with 49 in a 110-run second wicket stand with Smith to lay the platform for the final assault in the last five overs which yielded 58 runs.

The Zouks, in reply, were never really in the race and ended on 157 for four off their 20 overs, with a few batsmen getting starts but failing to carry on. Keddy Lesporis top-scored with an unbeaten 50 off 38 balls while Sohail Tanvir struck an entertaining unbeaten 38 off just 18 balls. Andre Fletcher scored 27.

However, it was Smith who stole the show, punching seven fours and eight sixes in a 69-ball innings. He reached his first 50 off 39 balls and completed the second from just 29 deliveries. The visitors lost wickets regularly to slip to 79 for four in the 14th over before Lesporis and Sohail put on 78 for the fifth wicket to revive the innings. Lesporis hit six fours and a six while Sohail stroked a four and bludgeoned four sixes but the asking rate of over 17 an over proved too much for Zouks.

Brief scores:

Barbados Tridents: 186 for 2 in 20 overs (Dwayne Smith 110*, Shoaib Malik 49; Tino Best 1 for 27) beat St. Lucia Zouks 157 for 4 off 20 overs (Keddy Lesporis 50 not out, Sohail Tanvir 38 not out; Jeevan Mendis 1 for 16) by 29 runs.
