St Vincent and the Grenadines made a meal of the target set by Trinidad & Tobago and handed them a 59-run win and a spot in the semi-finals of the Stanford 20/20.
Dwayne Bravo plundered 62 off 34 balls and added 86 with William Perkins (56) to revive the T&T innings following a poor start. T&T had scored 55 for 3 in the first ten overs. By the 15th - with Bravo and Perkins on the offensive - 55 more were added without the loss of any wicket. Bravo hit a six and two fours off Romel Currency's first over that went for 18 runs. But the T&T batsmen's urgency to score runs was evident though ill-advised with four of the seven wickets falling to run-outs. Keon Peters was St Vincent's most successful bowler, removing Perkins and Bravo in successive overs.
St Vincent's chase was checked right from the second ball when opener Miles Bascombe was caught off Mervyn Dillon for a duck. It hit further snags on the way and at the end of the first ten overs St Vincent were 37 for 6.
Legspinner Samuel Badree dried up the runs, conceding only nine from his four overs, and took two wickets off successive deliveries. Deighton Butler was St Vincent's top scorer with an unbeaten 33.
On February 15 T&T will play the winner of the match between Barbados and Grenada to fight for a spot in the final.
