T&T defeat CCC by 7 wickets

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Trinidad & Tobago rolled over the Combined Campuses & Colleges by 7 wickets to virtually secure their spot in the semi-finals of the NAGICO Super50.

Chasing just 99 runs to win, T&T lost two wickets, but not before openers Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis took the hosts to within touching distance of their target.

Lewis pounded 44 runs from just 27 balls, hitting seven fours and two sixes. Simmons on the other hand started slowly but accelerated as he went on. He hit 38 runs from 41 balls.

T&T got to their target with 33.4 overs to spare.

Trinidad & Tobago bowlers blew away the Combined Campuses & Colleges for just 98 after the visitors won the toss and elected to bat in Match 11 of the NAGICO Super50.

T&T started the match by bowling tightly and that eventually led to a CCC collapse. CCC were 30/3 an over after the first Powerplay ended. Things only got slower and worst for the students.

Jason Mohammed was the surprise of the innings, taking 3-19 from his alloted ten overs. Dwayne Bravo also finished with the same figures. Ravi Rampaul, Sunil Narine and Rayad Emrit all chipped in with one wicket each.

Raymon Reifer tried his best to weather the storm with a patient 27 runs from 70 balls, but in trying to steal a quick single to Dwayne Bravo at mid-on, he was spectacularly run out. Kyle Mayers provided some resistance at the end but he was the last wcket to go for 19.

The Combined Campuses & Colleges won the toss and elected to bat first against Trinidad & Tobago in Match 11 of the NAGICO Super50 tournament.

The hosts made two changes to the team that defeated the Leeward Islands at Shaw Park with Imran Khan and Yannick Ottley making way for Jason Mohammed and Kevon Cooper to make their return.

The CCC are unchanged from their last match where they defeated the Leeward Islands by 160 runs. Both teams need to win to qualify for the semi-finals of the competition.

Of the ten matches so far in the NAGICO Super50, none has been more crucial than this one between Trinidad & Tobago and the Combined Campuses & Colleges.

Both teams are in a must-win situation where the winner will be able to make the semi-finals of the competition while the loswer will be forced to bow out.

The College students are currently on top of Group B with seven points while Barbados are in second place with six points. T&T are in third place with five points while the Leewards are already confirmed out of the tournament after losing their first two games.

They face Barbados in their final group match on Monday afternoon.
