T&T chalk up another win

Dwayne Bravo hitting out during his blistering half-century.

GROS ISLET – Trinidad and Tobago last night won their fourth match of the Caribbean Twenty20 Cricket Tournament with an emphatic 8-wicket victory over Windward Islands at the Beausejour Stadium. The win meant Trinidad and Tobago maintained their stranglehold on top spot in the tournament.†

Batting first, the Windward Islands were restricted to 125 for 6, with all the Trinidad and Tobago bowlers performing well with the ball. Middle-order batsman Keddy Lesporis top-scored with 31, off 33 balls, and captain Darren Sammy scoring at less than a run a ball, made an unbeaten 25 off 27. Leg-spinner Samuel Badree was the pick of the bowlers, taking 2 for 15 in four overs.

Trinidad and Tobago lost openers Lendl Simmons and William Perkins inside the first five overs but Dwayne Bravo and Darren Bravo ensured there were no further hiccups. Both struck half-centuries, Darren striking four fours and three sixes in 52 off 31 balls, and Dwayne finishing with 62, with five fours and four sixes. Their unbeaten stand of 112 in just 68 balls sealed victory with 22 balls to spare.†††
