The Windward Islands shocked defending champions Trinidad and?Tobago yesterday by 11 runs in the first match of the 2012 Caribbean T20 Cricket Competition at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
Captain Darren Sammy led from the front, hitting 41 from 31 balls to help his team to 129 for six. He also dismissed the dangerous Darren Bravo for 15, and – off the penultimate ball of the innings – made a running catch to send the other Bravo, Dwayne, back to the pavilion after he tried to hit his fifth six in an enterprising topscore of 51.
Trinidad were restricted to 118 for nine, starting on a losing note under new captain Denesh Ramdin. (SAT)
