PORT OF SPAIN – Trinidad and Tobago brushed aside a ragged Combined Campuses and Colleges by seven wickets to register their first win and get their Caribbean Twenty20 campaign up and running at the Queen's Park Oval on last night. Medium pacer Kevon Cooper (3-17) and off-spinner Sunil Narine (2-14) paralysed the CCC innings to restrict them to an inadequate 94 for eight from their 20 overs. T&T then overcame a few minor hiccups to reach their target with 15 balls to spare, with experienced West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo top-scoring with an unbeaten 36 in a Man-of-the-Match performance. Following Sunday night’s washout against Jamaica, T&T now have five points and are second behind leaders Barbados on eight points. CCC, meanwhile, remained winless after two matches and are at the bottom of the standings without a point. The T20 tournament continues on Wednesday with the Windward Islands playing their first match against Jamaica 4 p.m. and Trinidad and Tobago opposing the Leeward Islands at 8 p.m. (CMC)
