Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel 184-3 (DM Bravo 80no) beat
Barbados Tridents 112 (Misbah-ul-Haq 19) by 72 runs
25th match, Caribbean Premier League, Trinidad

Darren Bravo played a scintillating knock with the bat while Dwayne Bravo performed with the ball to take Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel to a massive 72-run victory against Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League at the Queen's Park Oval.

Trinidad & Tobago won the toss and elected to bat first. Jacques Kallis (49) started the innings with a couple of boundaries in the first over.

Cameron Delport (29) hit the first six of the innings as Trinidad & Tobago raced to 30 for nought in the first four overs.

Robin Peterson (1-14) managed to bowl a couple of quiet overs, conceding just six runs to put a brake on the scoring rate of Barbados, which eventually led to the dismissal of Delport.

Darren Bravo (80 not out) looked in great touch as he hit a six off his second delivery to deep mid-wicket.

Kallis on the other end was going at a run-a-ball as the pair added 75 runs for the third wicket in just 55 deliveries.

Kallis was unfortunate to miss out on a half-century by one run when Ravi Rampaul (1-59) knocked down his off stump. Trinidad & Tobago were 125 for three at that stage in 17.2 overs. 

What followed was absolute carnage as Darren Bravo added an unbeaten 59-run stand in just 16 deliveries with Dwayne Bravo (14 not out) to take Trinidad & Tobago to 184 for three in their 20 overs.

After the dismissal of Kallis, Darren added 44 runs in just 12 deliveries, in the process bringing up his half-century.

Chasing 185 for the win, Barbados Tridents were never in the game, losing wickets at regular intervals with Misbah-ul-Haq (19) top scoring for them.

All the bowlers of Trinidad & Tobago had a good day. Dwayne Bravo (3-16) was the pick of the bowlers, while Deron Davis (2-22) and Samuel Badree (2-20) managed a couple of wickets each.

Darren Bravo was named as the player of the match. The win has also narrowed the points difference between leaders Barbados and bottom side Trinidad & Tobago to just three.
