Toss: Trinidad won the toss and they will be fielding.

Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage of the Caribbean T20, the first game is between Canada and Trinidad & Tobago. The player to watch out for Canada is Rizwan Cheema, who caught the eye after smashing ten sixes in a Twenty20 tournament in Canada two years ago also involving Sri Lanka and Pakistan in 2008 and for Trinidad & Tobago it will be Kieron Pollard and Adrian Barath.

Jerome: "with the state of WI cricket a change will do good. mike the wickets play like the 70's and 80's and you will see a change in the bowling efforts & build confidence."
