Leewards to bat first after T&T win toss

Trinidad and Tobago won the toss and decided to bowl first against the Leeward Islands Match 6 of the West Indies Cricket Board’s Caribbean T20 Tournament at Kensington Oval on Saturday night. Trinidad and Tobago are using the same team which won the opening match against Canada on Thursday, while the Leewards are without their two most experienced, Runako Morton and Omari Banks, who have both been ruled out due to injury. They are replaced by Jacques Taylor and Steve Liburd.

Leewards name replacements for injured Banks and Morton

Allrounders Steve Liburd and Jason Campbell have been named to replace Runako Morton and Omari Banks in the Leeward Islands team for the West Indies Cricket Board’s Caribbean T20 Tournament. Morton, the middle-order batsman, has a damaged right shoulder; while Banks, the off-spinning allrounder, has a right hamstring injury. The Leewards are in Zone A and lost their opening match against Jamaica on Thursday. Their next match is against Trinidad and Tobago on Saturday at 8 pm.
