Trinidad and Tobago 93 for 2 (Perkins 53) beat Cayman Islands 92 (Badree 3-6) by eight wickets
Earlier, Cayman Islands never seemed to get going, as the batsmen were stifled by some tight bowling and fielding by Trinidad. The innings contained four run-outs in all, including a brilliant direct hit by Mervyn Dillon to send back Jalon Linton. Dillon hit the target at the non-striker's end from the mid-wicket boundary as the batsmen attempted a second run. Legspinner Samuel Badree, who opened the bowling with Dillon, wrapped up the innings with a three-wicket burst to finish with splendid figures of 3 for 6 in only 3.5 overs. He also picked up the Player-of-the-Match award for his efforts.
"We are very happy with the way we played," Badree told the press after the match. "We're backing ourselves to win and we are looking forward to the challenge against Barbados (the quarter-finals) on Friday."
