GROS ISLET, St Lucia – Mighty Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) reduced the Caribbean Twenty20 final to a no-contest as they crushed out of sorts Guyana in an authoritative performance to march to their third consecutive title here Sunday night. The defending champions hardly put a foot wrong, limiting Guyana to an inadequate 116 for six off their 20 overs and then cruising to their target with over seven overs left at the Beausejour Cricket Stadium. T&T’s triumph was set up by fast bowlers Shannon Gabriel (two for 16) and Rayad Emrit (two for 18) who claimed two wickets apiece in superb four-over spells to keep a lid on the scoring. Happy to chase a target that required less than a run a ball, T&T got off to a flyer courtesy of a rollicking 52-run stand off 32 balls between dashing West Indies right-hander Lendl Simmons and rookie Evin Lewis.  (CMC)
