England, champions in the inaugural CLOBI Cup masters tournament last year, finished bottom of the four-team competition this year after losing the third-place play-off by eight runs to India at Kensington Oval tonight.
 India, competing in the tournament for the first time, romped the highest score of the competition, posting 191 for three from their 20 overs and then restricted England to 183 for five.
 India’s victory was set up by an impressive 98 off 58 balls by Vikram Rathour.
 A crowd of more than 5 000 is expected in the stands to watch the final between West Indies and Sri Lanka.
The teams will be competing for a top prize of US$50 000.
 Crowd favourite Carl Hooper is missing the final because of a shoulder injury sustained in the last preliminary match against Sri Lanka on Sunday night.
