T&T defeat Jamaica by 7 wickets
 

Port of Spain, Trinidad - T&T easily saw off Jamaica by 7 wickets to book a spot in Saturday's NAGICO Super50 final against either Barbados or Guyana.

Chasing just 50 runs to win, Jerome Taylor removed Evin Lewis with just one run on the board, as the left hander top edged to mid-on. However, Lendl Simmons looked more sound.

Taylor then struck again when T&T were 10 runs, sending back Imran Khan to the pavilion for just one run. Simmons and Darren Bravo then put on a small partnership of 24 runs to take T&T to within touching distance of victory.

When Simmons fell for 21, Dwayne Bravo joined his brother and both took T&T home. Big Bravo finished on 5 not out while Darren was 23 not out. Taylor was the pick of the bowlers for Jamaica taking 3-11.

Dwayne Bravo led the assault as Trinidad & Tobago bowlers ran riot over Jamaica in the 1st semi-final of the NAGICO Super50 tournament.

After winning the toss and electing to field first, T&T captain Dwayne Bravo justified his own decision by removing both Jamaican openers. Ravi Rampaul good support at the other end. He too eventually took a couple of wickets.

The real slide started when Rayad Emrit was introduced into the attack and he started taking wickets. Before Jamaica knew it, they were 25/6, eventually being bowled out for 49 in 24.2 overs. Emrit ended with 4-19 while Dwayne Bravo took 3-19.

T&T will chase 50 runs to get into the NAGICO Super50 final.

Hosts, Trinidad & Tobago, won the toss and elected to field first in the first semi-final of the NAGICO Super50 tournament at the Queen's Park Oval.

Both teams made changes to their Starting XIs from their last matches. T&T made just the one change with Imran Khan coming in for the out of form Adrian Barath.
