Williams, Bennett had eyes on victory

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC- Coaches of the two teams involved in Sunday night’s opening clash of the Caribbean T20 tournament both claim they had a chance of pulling of victory barring the inclement weather which forced the match to be abandoned.

 Trinidad and Tobago made 128-9 off 20 overs and Jamaica reached 5-without loss in 1.2 overs before rain forced officials to abandon play in a charged atmosphere of 15,000 spectators.

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – There was no fairytale start to Trinidad and Tobago’s quest for a third Caribbean Twenty20 title as their curtain-raiser against archrivals Jamaica ended disappointingly in a no-result, after rain washed out the contest on Sunday night.

The hosts suffered a batting meltdown and struggled to a paltry 128 for nine and Jamaica had reached five without loss off eight deliveries when heavy rain swept across Queen’s Park Oval, leaving a water-logged venue and dashing any hopes of a resumption.
