Bowlers take T&T into semi-finals
Trinidad & Tobago 100 for 3 (Lewis 44) beat Combined Campuses & Colleges 98 (Dwayne Bravo 3-19, Jason Mohammed 3-19) by seven wickets
An incisive bowling performance from Trinidad & Tobago, spearheaded by the captain Dwayne Bravo and offspinner Jason Mohammed, paved the way for the team's seven-wicket mauling of Combined Campuses and Colleges at the Queens Park Oval. As a result of the win, T&T have now qualified for the semi-finals where they will face Guyana.
CCC, choosing to bat, failed to produce even one significant partnership and lost wickets right from the off. Only three batsmen reached double figures, as Dwayne and Jason shared six scalps between them to dismiss the team for 98 in 44.2 overs. Both the bowlers ended with identical figures - 3 for 19 from their 10 overs- while Ravi Rampaul, Sunil Narine and Rayad Emrit chipped in with a wicket each.
T&T made a bright start in their chase, as the openers Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis forged a 65-run stand. The pair eventually fell in quick succession - Lewis for 44 and Simmons for 38 - but by then, the hosts' second win of the tournament had all but been sealed.
CCC, who are second in Group B, will only qualify if Leewards Islands beat Barbados in their final group game.
