Trinidad win the toss, Blues to bat first
Trinidad and Tobago skipper Daren Ganga won the toss and decided to field first against New South Wales in the final of the Champions League T20 event at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
Expectations are high in Trinidad and Tobago as they prepare to toast their cricket team's victory in Champions League T20 final against New South Wales.
Trinidad and Tobago have demolished every rival en route to the final spot of the Champions League Twenty20 and the batting prowess of the Caribbean side has so far evoked awe.
Dwayne Bravo struck form on Thursday with a bludgeoning 34-ball 58 as Trinidad and Tobago stretched their unbeaten run to the final, thrashing Cape Cobras by seven wickets in the second semi-final.
Whereas, a ruthless New South Wales breezed into the final of the Champions League Twenty20, steamrolling country cousins Victoria Bushrangers by 79 runs in a grossly lop-sided first semi-final on Wednesday.
The NSW side, under Simon Katich, hardly broke a sweat in the all-Australian encounter.
