Darren Bravo hit the last ball for six and half-brother Dwayne also played a good hand as the Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel beat the Guyana Amazon Warriors in a Caribbean League 2014 thriller.

The last time these two met, the match went down to a Super Over but on this occasion, Darren Bravo hit a six from the final ball to seal a four-wicket victory for the Red Steel.

Batting first, Guyana posted a competitive 179 for five with runs coming from Denesh Ramdin (84 in 45 balls) and then Christopher Barnwell (22) at the death.

Samuel Badree finished with excellent figures of three for 22 and while Trinidad's premier spinner kept it tight, Guyana were missing theirs, Sunil Narine left out due to a side strain.

It looked early on as if it wouldn't matter as Trinidad made a poor start, slipping to 13 for three. Dropped twice, Dwayne Bravo progressed to 67 to get the innings back on track before it was down to the younger of the pair to try to finish off the job.

Nine runs were needed from the final over, and after Ronsford Beaton conceded just three from the first five balls, Bravo would have the final say with a crunching match-winning blow over mid-wicket.
