A fine first-innings showing from Trinidad & Tobago's spinners on the back of a team performance with the bat left Leeward Islands following on in Basseterre in the opening round of the Caribbean first-class tournament. T&T followed up with a team showing with the ball in the second innings, leaving Leewards 24 short of making them bat a second time. They took 17 points from the innings and 23-run win.
It was legspinner Imran Khan and left-arm spinner Kavesh Kantasingh who did the most damage in Leewards first innings, taking four wickets apiece to bowl them out for 118. Their efforts came after a series of half-centuries from T&T's top and middle order took them to 325. Steven Katwaroo was the top scorer in that innings with 71. The second time round Leewards improved but hardly so, getting to 184 as every T&T bowler who bowled claimed at least one wicket.
