Caribbean T20 - Final

Guyana v Trinidad & Tobago

Trinidad & Tobago won by 9 wickets (with 45 balls remaining)

Hello all and welcome to the coverage of the final of Caribbean T20. Yes, the contestants today are Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago, the only winners of the tournament till date. While Trinidad & Tobago have won it thrice, Guyana have won it twice

News from the middle is that Trinidad & Tobago have won the toss and are fielding

Trinidad & Tobago have come to the final undefeated. They would want to maintain the streak and qualify for Champions League

Going by the feedback we are getting, Guyana seem to be the favoured team to win the tournament. Where are you, T&T fans?

Errol says "Jamaica beat Guyana in the earlier round but Guyana won when it mattered most. Maybe Guyana can do the same to Trinidad and Tobago whom they lost to earlier"

The first over of the innings set the tone. Only one run was scored off it and the batsmen were out-thought by the bowlers after that. The innings never got going and Guyana could've been in a worser situation if not for the wayward bowling, at times, by T&T bowlers. They conceded 19 extras.

As Sammy said on commentary, you can never count Guyana out of the game. They need to bring their best performance bowling wise if they want to make a match of it
