Trinis scrape past Canada; Leewards continue to struggle
North Sound, Antigua – Trinidad & Tobago barely scraped home against a feisty Canadian side to register a last ball 5 wicket victory in the final game of the Antigua leg of the Caribbean Twenty20.
Chasing Canada’s 128 for 5 from 20 overs the Trinis scrambled two runs from the final ball of the match to edge to 129 for 5 to seal the win.
In the curtain raiser of the day the Leeward Islands failed to break their losing streak in regional Twenty20s as they went down to Hampshire Royals by 46 runs.
Hampshire made 156 for 5 from 20 overs with Star of the Match Johann Myburgh crashing 76 from 57 balls with half a dozen sixes and four boundaries.
Leewards turned in another poor batting performance, having been bowled out for 110 with Jahmar Hamilton top scoring with 32 as former England pacer Simon jones picked up three wickets for 21 runs from four overs of aggressive pace bowling.
