Barbados 74 for 5 (Justin Brathwaite 23, Santokie 2-14) beat Jamaica 72 (Bonner 21, Carlos Brathwaite 4-23, Hinds 3-12) by five wickets
Carlos Brathwaite and Ryan Hinds took seven wickets between them to help rout Jamaica for 72 at Queen's Park Oval, and set up Barbados' second victory of the Caribbean T20.
After winning the toss, Jamaica's openers added 38 in four overs before the collapse began. They then lost ten wickets for 34 runs and were dismissed in 17.3 overs. Only three batsmen made it past single figures, with Nkrumah Bonner's 21 being the top score. Carlos Brathwaite's 4 for 23 were his career-best figures.
Barbados also had a shaky period in their small chase, when they lost four wickets for ten runs and slipped to 40 for 5. Opening batsman Justin Brathwaite had scored most of the runs, making 23 off 10 balls. Shane Dowrich and Kyle Mayers, however, ensured Barbados got home in 11.2 overs without further damage.
Trinidad & Tobago 98 for 3 (Dwayne Bravo 36*) beat Combined Campuses and Colleges 94 for 8 (Cooper 3-17, Narine 2-14) by seven wickets
In another low-scoring game in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago (T&T) earned their first victory of the tournament by beating Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) by seven wickets.
T&T's bowlers were economical and incisive after their captain Denesh Ramdin won the toss. Only four CCC batsmen made it into double figures but Chadwick Walton's 19 was the top score. The slow bowlers Kevon Cooper and Sunil Narine took 3 for 17 and 2 for 14, while Dwayne Bravo had figures of 1 for 8 in his four-over spell. CCC managed only 94 for 8 in 20 overs.
T&T did not hurry to victory, reaching the target in 17.2 overs. Dwayne Bravo was the top scorer, making an unbeaten 36 off 42 balls.
