Hampshire/Trinidad and Tobago final
The Caribbean Twenty20 final will have the presence of a non-West Indian team tonight.
Hampshire, the English county Twenty20 champions, qualified for the championship match with an exciting victory over Windward Islands by four runs in the first semifinal at Kensington Oval yesterday.
Windwards mounted a serious challenge in chasing a target of 167 but were pegged back in the middle of the innings through a slump orchestrated by medium-pacer Hamza Riazuddin.
Riazuddin claimed the key wickets of Devon Smith, Andre Fletcher and captain Darren Sammy to help limit Windwards to 162 for seven.
Hampshire’s opponents in the final are Trinidad and Tobago.
