Comfortable win for Red Force over CCC

It was carded as a day/night affair but Trinidad and Tobago required less then three hours to dispose of a listless Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners by nine wickets in their second match of the Regional Super50 yesterday.

Off-spinner Sunil Narine was brilliant, claiming five for 10 from 7.4 overs, to sink Marooners for 101 off 25.4 overs after the Barbabados-based unit opted to bat first at historic Kensington Oval.

Left-arm seamer Sheldon Cottrell picked up three for 40 while left-arm spinner Khary Pierre took two for 15.
