Barbados Tridents batting hit rock bottom on Tuesday night in an embarassing eight-wicket loss to Guyana Amazon Warriors in Match No. 22 of the 2020 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, in Trinidad.

After choosing to bat first, the reigning champions were reduced to 27 for 8 after 12 overs and only a face-saving innings from Mitchell Santner, who made 36 off 27 balls including a 48-run partnership with Rashid Khan for the ninth wicket, spared them further humiliation after they were in serious danger of breaking the mark for the CPL's lowest score, recorded by the then Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel in 2013 who were bowled out for 52. Chris Green completed the astonishing figures of 4-2-3-1.
