Jamaica 116 for 6 (Hyatt 44, Mathurin 2-18) beat Windward Islands 104 for 9 (Santokie 3-24, Lambert 3-10) by 12 runs
Scorecard

Jamaica earned their first victory of the Caribbean T20 by defending a moderate total in a shortened match at Queen's Park Oval. Having made only 116 for 6 in 17 overs, Jamaica derailed a Windward Island chase that was progressing smoothly at 65 for 2. Tamar Lambert, the sixth bowler Jamaica used, took three wickets in the 11th over to reduce them to 66 for 5. Windward Islands wicketkeeper Lindon James scored an unbeaten 24 off 15 balls but got no support from the lower order and they finished on 104 for 9 in 17 overs.

Jamaica's total had been built around Danza Hyatt's 44 after they were sent in to bat. Only two other batsmen got into double figures, Lambert making 16 and debutant Andre McCarthy 19. Garey Mathurin took 2 for 18 and there were two more run-outs as Windward Islands kept Jamaica to 116 for 6, but the total proved a few too many.

Trinidad & Tobago 187 for 4 (Simmons 62, Darren Bravo 65*) beat Leeward Islands 92 for 8 (Badree 2-13, Pollard 2-6) by 95 runs
Scorecard

Trinidad & Tobago's second victory of the Caribbean T20 was a crushing one, their batsmen amassing a formidable total before their bowlers stifled Leewards Islands at Queen's Park Oval.

T&T opener Lendl Simmons made 62 and Darren Bravo contributed 65, both batsmen hitting five sixes in their innings to lead their team to 187 for 4. Pollard's cameo was vital too; he made 29 off 12 balls. Tonito Willet, who took 2 for 18, was the only Leeward Islands bowler to go at less than six runs an over.

No T&T bowler, on the other hand, had an economy rate of more than six runs an over. Legspinner Samuel Badree, who opened the bowling, Yannick Ottley and Kieron Pollard took two wickets each, pegging Leeward Islands back at regular intervals. Badree struck twice in the first over and Leeward Islands never recovered from 4 for 2. Later on, they lost three wickets for four runs to slip to 66 for 7. Chesney Hughes was the top scorer with 20 and only two of his team-mates got into double figures as Leeward Islands were restricted to 92 for 8 in 20 overs.

As a West Indian I'm very disappointed with what i'm seeing overall. I want to congratulate all the teams who have won so far. Well done. I am disappointed to see the level of pitch prepration that seems to heavily favour the slow bowlers. This is giving a false sense of dominace by the victors. I'm eagerly awaiting the St Lucia leg of the tournament.

@Rally_Windies you've just made the find of the century. 'Two men do not make a team' Its about time JAMAICA invest in a PROPER youth/grassroots structure to ensure that the problem you've identified is corrected. Thanks to the IPL, player should be queueing to reap the trappings of the players new financial FREEDOM but unfortunately the cricket played on xbox is completely different to that played in the cricket ground, dirt track, school yard or even the beach. This is fast dying and so is the availability of TALENT.

Jamaica's batting, without Samuels and Gayle is HORRIBLE ......

The Selector, Robert Samuels (Marlon's big brother) should pick himself....

Even at his age, I am sure, in Chris and Malorn's absence, Robert would be better than every Jamaican batter currently playing (in 20/20 cricket)
