Shakib continues his purple patch in CPL

Bangladesh ace all rounder Shakib Al Hasan

continued his good work in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) helping his side

to win the last game of the group phase before the play off matches.

After coming to open the bowling Shakib claimed two crucial wickets for just

25 runs in four overs as his side Barbados Tridents clinched a comfortable

seven wicket victory over Trinbago Knight Riders at Port of Spain on Wednesday

according to CPL website.

Shakib took the wicket of opener Jimmy Nisham in the first over and then came

back with fire in his last spell to claim the prized scalp of Lendl Simmons who

scored highest 60 for Trinbago.

Simmonss dismissal in 15th over effectively ruined Trinbagos any chance of

making a hefty total as they were restricted to 134 8 in 20 overs.

In his 45 ball 60 that was studded by three fours and fours sixes Simmons kept

the run flowing and it looked Trinbago was on course of big total until Shakib Al

Hasan rattled his stump with a straight delivery.

Shakib however didnt fare well in batting as he was out for just 13. But Johnson

Charless 47 ball 55 runs including five fours and two sixes helped the side cruise

to the victory with 135 3 in 19.4 overs. Alex Hales was the other notable scorer

with 33.

After his union with the Barbados Shakib played three matches and took six

wickets which all came in the crucial moment of the game. Even though he was

not at his best in batting apart from the second match in which he scored 25

ball 33 runs his bowling kept Barbados on course.

Barbados lost one match in three in which Shakib was the part of the team.

However the team had already confirmed their play off berth.
