On the eve of the match, we wrote that “Suriname will need an extraordinarily comprehensive win to have any chance of overtaking the Bahamas”, and that’s just what happened. Needing only 83 to avoid being pipped to the title on net run rate, Bahamas were utterly woeful as they crashed to 57 all out and a thumping 146-run defeat.

    Bahamas played some poor cricket on the day, but many factors went against them on a day to forget. In the previous 2 days they played some great cricket also.

    Suriname also deserve credit and were an under rated team.
