Jamaica 147 (Hyatt 57, Kantasingh 5-35, Emrit 4-35) and 259 (Parchment 75, Lambert 51, Imran Khan 5-28) beat Trinidad and Tobago 121 (Simmons 39, Cotterrell 5-43) and 192 (Emrit 52, Miller 4-54) by 93 runs
Jamaica made it four wins out of four after beating Trinidad and Tobago by 93 runs in a low-scoring encounter in Kingston. Jamaica were on the back foot after being put in, as T&T bowled them out for 147 on the first day. Left-arm spinner Kavesh Kantasingh picked up a five-for and medium-pacer Rayad Emrit collected four, to bowl out Jamaica in 49.4 overs. T&T did worse when they came out to bat. Left-arm seamer Sheldon Cotterrell took 5 for 43 to help skittle out T&T for 121 and give his side a 26-run lead.
Jamaica put up a better performance with the bat in the second innings, with Brenton Parchment and captain Tamar Lambert scoring half-centuries and the others chipping in with small, but useful, contributions. Though legspinner Imran Khan picked up a five-for, Jamaica reached 259, a lead of 285 that was formidable given how the sides had performed in their respective first innings.
As it turned out, the target proved too much for T&T. Five of their batsmen got starts but only one managed to reach a half-century - Emrit - and it wasn't enough. Left-arm spinner Nikita Miller bagged four wickets in a collective bowling effort, and T&T fell short by 93 runs, bowled out for 192 in 77.2 overs.
