THE FINAL

DATE TEAMS VENUE RESULT MAN OF THE MATCH
20th January 2013 Final Guyana v Trinidad and Tobago Beausejour Stadium, Gros Islet Trinidad and Tobago won by 9 wickets Shannon Gabriel

 

There was a lot of emphasis placed on the toss as only twice in eleven matches played on the St Lucia leg of this tournament – first leg January 6 to 13 played in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad – had the team batting first won. Veerasammy Permaul, the Guyana captain called heads, lost and was asked to bat. However, the way the evening panned out, such factors were unlikely to have made any difference to T&T as they dominated the contest throughout.

T&T were coming into the match after a four-day break but they were not slow to regain their rhythm. Guyana’s batsmen were completely at sea against the combination of aggressive fast bowling from Shannon Gabriel and Rayad Emrit backed up by the wily spin of Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine. It was Gabriel with his bounding run-up who clocked consistently blistering pace to put Guyana under the cosh straightaway. There was a lot of emphasis placed on the toss as only twice in eleven matches played on the St Lucia leg of this tournament – first leg January 6 to 13 played in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad – had the team batting first won. Veerasammy Permaul, the Guyana captain called heads, lost and was asked to bat. However, the way the evening panned out, such factors were unlikely to have made any difference to T&T as they dominated the contest throughout.

After taking just a single from Gabriel’s first over, Christian powerfully drove Badree for the first boundary off the seventh ball of the match. Two balls later, trying to hit straight and over the bowler’s head, Christian mistimed to mid-off. Emrit was the catcher but in Badree’s next over Emrit made a mess of a simple chance from Trevon Griffith, the other Guyana opener, who had attempted a straight hoick.

Ramnaresh Sarwan continued his terrible form, falling prey to a familiar ploy. Prompted by Dwayne Bravo, Gabriel adjusted his lengths, pitching more back of length and short against Sarwan, who lost control of his stroke on the charge and top-edged to midwicket. In the same over, Gabriel attacked the ribs of new man Narsingh Deonarine with a lifting delivery, the batsman beaten by the pace to be caught behind.

By the time the fielding restrictions were removed after the sixth over, Guyana were 23 for 3. At the halfway mark, they had limped to 49 for 3, with just two fours coming from the bat. It was not the first time Guyana had started off in such sluggish fashion. Throughout the tournament their top order had failed to perform consistently. If anything, short cameos and spirited partnerships had carried them to the summit clash.

In Guyana’s play-off win over Jamaica, Griffith and Christopher Barnwell had raised a match-turning 79-run run partnership for the third wicket. The pair was once again attempted another rescue act. On 19, Griffith tried to slog Emrit down the ground but gave another chance to the bowler, who allowed the ball to bounce out of his hands once again. “This guy doesn’t want to be here,” was Ramdin’s response to another life for Griffith and although the batsman slog-swept Narine for a six in the next over he was eventually run out by a Pollard direct hit from short midwicket while going for a tight single.

After that steadying, 61-run partnership, the onus was now entirely on Barnwell. However, he was finding it hard to connect and he departed for 32 in the 17th over, top-edging Emrit to point. Two balls later, Leon Johnson was caught in the deep by Simmons: Guyana had lost two wickets for just one run. Although 11 runs came off the final over, Guyana knew it was too little and too late.

Chasing a modest 117 for victory, T&T started in dominant fashion, racing to 25 after three overs as the opening pair of Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis declared their positive intent. Guyana should have had Lewis early on however when he miscued a pull against a short delivery from Ronsford Beaton, one of the most impressive fast bowlers to have emerged from the last two weeks. Beaton charged forward to take the catch in his follow through but wicketkeeper Derwin Christian advanced simultaneously from behind the wicket and both men collided, allowing Lewis who had run virtually to the other end, to return safely back to his crease.

Next ball, Lewis, playing his second match of the tournament, upper-cut Beaton for the first six of T&T’s innings. Lewis meted out further punishment to Steven Jacobs as 20 runs came from the fifth over to bring up the T&T 50, but Beaton got his man when he sent down a short-pitched delivery that Lewis did not handle well enough, presenting an easy catch. The Guyana players flashed nervous smiles, perhaps realising the writing was already on the wall. Simmons and Pollard ensured that it was, wrapping up the chase with almost eight overs to spare.

Darren Bravo was honored with the Man of the Tournament award. Shannon Gabriel who picked up 2 for 16 for TT was named top player of the match Ramdin then received the T20 Trophy to raucous applause.

Guyana, who won the tournament in 2006 and 2010, were playing their fourth match in as many days and were running low on fuel. Clearly they had not had enough time to chalk out a workable strategy, something T&T managed to do convincingly. Possessing as many as seven of West Indies’ World Twenty20-winning squad, T&T had the experience, firepower, nous and balance to win the tournament.

In the end they were the deserving winners and earned the unique honour of winning the Caribbean Twenty20 for the third successive year, and their fourth title overall. Anointed the favourites from the moment this final edition of the tournament began on January 6, the defending champions lived up to their reputation with a resounding victory.

DATE TEAMS VENUE RESULT MAN OF THE MATCH
9th January 2013 3rd Trinidad and Tobago v Leeward Islands Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain Trinidad and Tobago won by 95 runs Lendl Simmons

 

T&T batsmen amassed a formidable total before their bowlers stifled Leewards Islands. T&T opener Lendl Simmons made 62 and Darren Bravo contributed 65 not out, both batsmen hitting five sixes in their innings to lead their team to 187 for 4. Pollard’s cameo was vital too – he made 29 off 12 balls. Tonito Willett, who took 2 for 1, was the only Leeward Islands bowler to go at less than six runs an over.

No T&T bowler, on the other hand, had an economy rate of more than six runs an over. Legspinner Samuel Badree who opened the bowling, Yannick Ottley and Kieron Pollard took two wickets each, pegging Leeward Islands back at regular intervals. Badree struck twice in the first over and Leeward Islands struggled from 4 for 2. Later on, they lost three wickets for four runs to slip to 66 for 7. Chesney Hughes was the top scorer with 20 and only two of his team-mates got into double figures as Leeward Islands were restricted to 92 for 8 in 20 overs. T&T logged their second victory.

4th Match

 

DATE TEAMS VENUE RESULT MAN OF THE MATCH
12th January 2013 4th Trinidad and Tobago v Guyana Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain Trinidad and Tobago won by 80 runs Darren Bravo

Darren Bravo played one of the best innings of the series at this stage to steer Trinidad and Tobago to a stunning win over Guyana. He made his highest T20 score of 82 not out when both opening batsmen were bowled out.

Guyana asked T&T to bat and removed their openers Lendl Simmons and William Perkins cheaply. They even managed to restrict Dwayne Bravo to a run-a-ball 19 but Darren Bravo kept the runs coming for T&T. Guyana hadn’t allowed T&T to blaze away, though, and when Denesh Ramdin became the fourth wicket to fall, the score was 127 in the 16th over.

Kieron Pollard came in, and took the game further away from Guyana. Pollard blitzed five sixes in making an unbeaten 44 off just 17 deliveries. Darren Bravo himself swung four sixes in his 51-ball stay, which also brought him eight fours.

An asking rate in the region of ten runs an over was much to prove for Guyana who failed to build any momentum during the chase. Most of the T&T bowlers were among the wickets with Rayad Emrit taking two and Sunil Narine returning with 1 for 12 from four overs. Shivnarine Chanderpaul played a lone hand with a half-century at the top of the order. The next highest score was 14 by Narsingh Deonarine. Guyana was left to reflect upon a heavy defeat which hurt their net run-rate and sent T&T’s soaring.

5th Match

DATE TEAMS VENUE RESULT MAN OF THE MATCH
15th January 2013 5th Windward Islands v Trinidad and Tobago Beausejour Stadium, Gros Islet Trinidad and Tobago won by 8 wickets Dwayne Bravo

Windwards batted first and were restricted to 125 for 6, thanks to economical spells from most of T&T’s bowlers. Keddy Lesporis top-scored with 31off 33 balls, and even Darren Sammy scored at less than a run a ball, making an unbeaten 25 off 27. Legspinner Samuel Badree was the pick of the bowlers, taking 2 for 15 in four overs.

T&T lost openers Lendl Simmons and William Perkins inside the first five overs but Dwayne Bravo and Darren Bravo ensured there were no further hiccups. Both struck half-centuries, with nine fours and seven sixes between them, Dwayne Bravo stepped aside with a few deliveries left just so his younger brother Darren could make his half century mark. The duo added an unbeaten 112 for the third wicket in 68 balls. Dwayne, the star of the match, remained 62 not out off 42 balls with five fours and four sixes, while Darren, the leading run scorer in the tournament, finished on 52 not out off 31 balls with four fours and three sixes. Of note was the apparent friendly, playful mood among players on both teams with Windwards led by West Indies captain Darren Sammy and T&T led by Sammy’s deputy and West Indies wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin). But no stopping T&T who were assured a place in the final with this win.

6th Match

DATE TEAMS VENUE RESULT MAN OF THE MATCH
16th January 2013 6th Barbados v Trinidad and Tobago Beausejour Stadium, Gros Islet Trinidad and Tobago won by 5 wickets Rayad Emrit

Trinidad and Tobago continued their impressive run in the Caribbean T20, picking up their fifth win in six matches. They beat Barbados comfortably, by five wickets. For their second straight game, the bowlers bowled economically, with five out of six bowlers used conceding less than six an over. The spinners Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine kept Barbados in check and Rayad Emrit picked up two wickets with his medium-pace. Ashley Nurse was the top-scorer for Barbados, making an unbeaten 24 in 19, but it wasn’t enough, as his team only managed 101 for 6.

T&T openers Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis lay a good foundation for the chase with a 45-run opening stand. Simmons was in a no-nonsense mood and sent the white ball aerial and with distance too as he had the Trini fans in the West Stand in a celebratory mood. Simmons top scored with 36 from 23 balls and Lewis counted 24 in his first match of the tournament.

Barbados captain Dwayne Smith ran out Dwayne Bravo in less-than-sportsmanlike fashion and was frowned upon by T&T fans, and the ill-mannered conduct of Tino Best on the field just made it worst. However, T&T lost their next four wickets for just 32 runs before Denesh Ramdin and Kieron Pollard steadied the ship, and took their team to the brink of victory, which was achieved with 29 balls to spare. At the end of the game the T&T team refused to come out onto the field to greet the Barbadians, as is customary at this tournament. 

T&T remained top of the seven-table table, unbeaten and automatic qualifiers (as table toppers) for the January 20 final against the winner of the January 19 semifinal play-off between second-placed Jamaica and third Guyana.
