Trinidad & Tobago have beaten Cape Cobras by two wickets in a must-win match which saw a nail-biting finish.
Earlier after winning the toss, Cape Cobras elected to bat first and were restricted to score of 137 runs by a disciplined bowling effort by Trinidad & Tobago.
T&T fielders supported bowlers well on a damp wicket which did not assist the seamers. Dane Vilas lead the fightback for Cobras with an elegant fifty. He was supported by England’s Owais Shah who scored runs.
In their reply, Trinidad & Tobago lost early wickets and were never allowed to build a partnership by Cobras bowlers.
But a spirited fight back by Kevin Cooper in the death overs saw the T&T chase the target with two balls to spare.
Cape Cobras are out of contention for the semifinals.
Brief Score: Cape Cobras 137 for 4 in 20 overs (Owais Shah 63*, Dane Vilas 54 ; Samuel Badree 1 for 19) lost to Trinidad & Tobago 138 for 8 in 19.4 overs (Darren Bravo 29, Kevin Cooper 25*; Justin Kemp 3 for 22) by 2 wickets.
