CT20 | T&T VS. JAMAICA

CT20 FINAL ON SPORTSNET WORLD
January 22, 2012

Two weeks of dramatic and edge of your seat cricket  comes to an end tonight as the Caribbean T20 Final between T&T and Jamaica goes at 7pm Eastern Time.

The match will be shown live on Sportsnet ONE as Red Force (T&T) looks to become the first back to back winners of this event.

On Saturday, Jamaica sealed their place in the final of the Caribbean T20 with a comfortable win over Windward Islands at the Kensington Oval in Barbados. Windwards had won four games on the trot in the lead-up to the semis but lost their way with the bat in a crunch game. Opting to bat, they failed to capitalise and soon found themselves struggling at 36 for 4.

Trinidad and Tobago hammered Barbados at the Kensington Oval to book a final clash with Jamaica. On a day where a three-digit score wasn't reached, Barbados, after choosing to bat, were skittled out for 90. After a 17-run opening-wicket stand, their innings never really got going and persistent strikes kept them to a below-par score. Wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich top-scored with 21 but the T&T bowlers cut through the rest of the line-up. Dwayne Bravo led the way with three wickets, and was assisted by Kevon Cooper, Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree, each of whom picked up two wickets in miserly spells.
