TRIDENTS Win Under Protest

Is it any wonder...?

This past Saturday, The Barbados TRIDENTS of the Caribbean Premier League of Cricket won the  Championship over the Guyana Amazon Warriors. The upstart TRIDENTS knocked off favorites Jamaica Tallawahs to enter the finals (the Tridents catapulted from fourth place into first to earn a bye through to the tournament final based on having the best net run rate), and the team from Guyana suffered it's second consecutive loss in the Championship game.

The Amazon Warriors are now protesting the outcome however. When a rain delay was announced (via Public Address, Social Media, and on the Television Broadcast), the TRIDENTS held a slight lead...apparently officials on the field had other plans, called the game, and award the victory and the Championship outright to Barbados.
