Trinidad & Tobago 145 for 5 (Dwayne Bravo 42, Tonge 3-38) beat Leeward Islands 140 (Narine 4-16, Rampaul 4-20) by five wickets
Leeward Islands, choosing to bat, struggled to muster any meaningful partnerships at the top of the order and lost wickets at regular intervals to stumble to 46 for 4 by the 18th over. Devon Thomas and Jahmar Hamilton briefly stopped the slide with a 67-run association for the fifth wicket, but once Thomas fell for 42, the team once again collapsed.
From 113 for 4, Leeward Islands were bowled out for just 140, as Rampaul and Narine ran through the remaining batsmen in 43.2 overs. Rampaul ended with 4 for 20, while Narine, the Man of the Match, conceded only 16 runs for his four scalps.
Fast bowler Gavin Tonge gave the visitors some hope of snatching an unlikely victory by effecting three dismissals to leave T&T precariously placed at 75 for 4. However, with only a paltry total to defend, those ambitions were quickly quashed as Dwayne Bravo and Denesh Ramdin put up a fifth-wicket stand of 65 to seal T&T's first win of the season.
