Trinidad and Tobago and Hampshire shared two points apiece after their game at Kensington Oval in Barbados was rained out with just 9.5 overs of play possible.

T&T, who chose to bat, got off to a shaky start losing three wickets with just 16 runs on the board. Fast bowler Hamza Riazuddin picked up two wickets while Lendl Simmons was dismissed by Simon Jones. Darren Bravo, however, hit some big shots to rescue his team. He was on 28 along with Jason Mohammad, who was on 15 off just 4 balls, when rain intervened. T&T were on 70 for 4 at that stage, but no further play was possible and the match was abandoned.

Barbados, who needed a win to remain in contention for the semi-finals, beat Canada by 33 runs, as per the D/L method in the second game which was also affected by rain. Dwayne Smith got Barbados off to a terrific start, plundering half a dozen sixes and three fours, in a blistering 40-ball 66. He was dismissed with the score on 100 in the 13th over, but the other Barbados batsmen failed to capitalise on the start. They managed just 39 runs in the seven remaining overs as Barbados reached 139 for 7.

However, that total proved to be more than enough for the Canadians. Fast bowler Javon Searles bowled a scintillating second over of the innings, in which he dismissed three Canada batsmen - Hiral Patel, Ravindu Gunasekara and Nitish Kumar - all for ducks. Canada were reeling at 3 for 3 and things only got worse when Tino Best bowled captain Ashish Bagai, also for a duck in the third over. Searles struck again in his second over to dismiss Tyson Gordon, again for a duck. Zubin Surkari and Jimmy Hansra were the only batsmen to score runs and were on 11 and 8 respectively, when the rain came down.

Canada were at 29 for 5 at that stage, off six overs, but no further play was possible. They were well short of the D/L par score of 63 at that stage and Barbados earned four crucial points. Barbados are currently on eight points in Group B behind T&T and Hampshire who have nine points apiece.
