Kane Williamson was in the runs, but couldn't guide the Barbados Tridents to a win in the latest round of the Caribbean Premier League.

Kiwis Brendon McCullum and Colin Munro grabbed bragging rights over countryman Kane Williamson in the Caribbean Premier League, even though neither of them fired with the bat.

Trinbago Knight Riders, who McCullum and Munro play for, beat Williamson's Barbados Tridents by two wickets at Port of Spain on Sunday (NZ Time)

That was despite Williamson scoring a patient 30 from 35 balls opening the innings as Barbados made their way to 152-9, with former Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik top scoring with 51 from 38 balls.

Dwayne Bravo and Ronsford Beaton took two wickets each.

In reply, the Knight Riders reached 155-8 with five balls to spare.

McCullum opened and was out for just 4, while No 3 Munro faced 10 balls for just 5 runs.

Luckily for Trinbago, Sunil Narine opened the innings and pumped 79 from 45 balls, hitting five sixes and six fours.

Darren Bravo chipped in with 25.

Medium pacer Shamar Springer took 3-32 for Barbados and South African Wayne Parnell picked up 2-26.

In the other game, Evin Lewis plundered 92 from 52 balls, hitting seven sixes and five fours, as St Kitts and Nevis Patriots beat the St Lucia Stars 33 runs at St Lucia.

Former New Zealand all-rounder Jesse Ryder is in the St Lucia team, but captain Darren Sammy opted to leave Ryder out of the match.

Lewis set up the Patriots innings of 196-6 from their 20 overs, smashing seven sixes and out shining his opening partner, West Indian star Chris Gayle, who made only 12.

Carlos Braithwaite added 21 down the order and Mohammad Nabi was on 24 not out.

Former West Indian paceman Jerome Taylor was the best of the St Lucia bowlers, taking 3-46, while Kiwi seamer Mitchell McClenaghan went wicketless, returning 0-40 from four overs.

In reply, St Lucia lost too many wickets in their chase and could only manage163-8 from their 20 overs.

Opener Andre Fletcher hit 48 from 33 balls and Rahkeem Cornwall was the next best with 23.

Afghanistan off-spinner grabbed 3-15 from four overs for St Kitts and Nevis and Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez snared 3-22 from four overs of his off-spin to bog down St Lucia.

McClenaghan scored 4 from four balls.
