Combined Campuses and Colleges v Windward Islands - Match abandoned
Torrential rains around noon ensured the third abandonment in four games played over two days in Trinidad, keeping Windward Islands and Combined Campuses and Colleges indoors for the final league game of the Caribbean T20. The more anticipated match-up of the day, between Guyana and Barbados met a similar fate earlier in the day leaving the tournament organisers worried about the knock-out games of the tournament to be played at the same venue over the next two days.
Though the rains cleared after three hours, the Queen's Park Oval was completely submerged and the officials were forced to abandon the second game two hours in advance, after having called off the first match immediately. Things were different yesterday when a washout was followed by a delayed and curtailed second match in the night.
CCC and Windwards finish the tournament winless, while Barbados tops Zone B by virtue of a net run-rate advantage over Guyana despite being tied on points. Weather permitting, Guyana will play the hosts in the first semi-final tomorrow while Barbados will square off against Jamaica in the second. The losing semi-finalists will clash in a third-place play-off on the 31st ahead of the final.
