Battling Sabres restrict Trinidad to 150
Trinidad & Tobago failed to impress on their Champions League debut, throwing away a good start to make just 150-9 against Somerset Sabres at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
After Lendl Simmons and William Perkins added 43 in five overs, it seemed T&T were in for a 170+ score on a featherbed having elected to bat.
But the Caribbean side collapsed suddenly, losing the Bravo brothers in a space of three balls. Dinesh Ramdin kept one end up, making 39, while wickets fell around him.
Charl Willoughby took 3-35, recovering from the hammering he took early on. Max Waller supported him well, taking 2-27 in four. Alfonso Thomas, Somerset's hero in the match against Deccan Chargers, took 2-26 in four.
Skipper Darren Ganga made 23 to stem the rot but his fall made the score 90-5 in 11 overs. His brother Sherwin made 18 from 8 balls to lift the score to 150 off the final ball.
