The mighty Barbados Tridents bulldozed Jamaica Tallawahs in their final pool game by a hefty margin of 88 runs and jumped into the final straight away. The minnows of the tournament, Antigua Hawksbills surprised Trinidad & Tobago by winning their maiden game with a margin of five wickets. The forthcoming semi-final will be a do or die game for Jamaica Tallawahs and Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel since the loser will be out of the tournament.
Nkrumah Bonner was the only impressive batsman for Jamaica Tallawahs who scored 47 runs vs. Barbados Tridents while nine of their players were unable to enter the double figures. A herculean effort will be required by Chris Gayle, Chadwick Walton and Adam Voges for winning the encounter. Rusty Theron grabbed four wickets in the previous game whereas Jerome Taylor and Andre Russell should be more accurate with the ball.
Evin Lewis was the top batsman for T&T Red Steel vs. Antigua Hawksbills with 38 runs. Kevin O’Brien, Darren Bravo and Ross Taylor must spark with willow and Dwayne Bravo should lead them from the front with his all-round performance. Kevon Cooper, Samuel Badree and Shannon Gabriel will deliver their best bowling in the match.
