The opening stand between William Perkins and Adrian Barath set the tone for the rest of the T&T innings. Perkins led the way and Barath joined in, as the pair added 66 in under seven overs to lay the stage for a massive total. Barath hung on to stitch a 76-run stand with Lendl Simmons and T&T were completely dominant.
Navin Stewart was playing his first match of the tournament, but he showed no signs of nerves as he flayed 33 off just 11 balls, striking three fours and three sixes, to take T&T to a match-winning score of 213, the highest in the tournament. T&T were in an excellent position when he came in to bat, but he helped bat out Eagles from the game with his merciless assault at the death.
Riley Rossouw, the Eagles opener, was threatening to pose a serious challenge to T&T, as he smacked 44 off just 19 balls. Eagles needed to chase down 214 in 14.2 overs to qualify for the semi-finals, and as long as Rossouw stayed at the crease, a miracle remained possible. But when he was caught at deep midwicket by Kieron Pollard off Simmons in the seventh over, Eagles had been dealt a body blow and the chase lost steam from there on.
