Hampshire Royals fall at the final hurdle

Hampshire's Caribbean T20 campaign came to a disappointing end on Sunday as they were beaten by 36 runs in the final by Trinidad & Tobago.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, Trinidad & Tobago made 147 for seven from their 20 overs in Barbados.

Danny Briggs (two for nine) dismissed Adrian Barath with the fifth ball of the innings, but Lendl Simmons and Darren Bravo then put on 77 for the second wicket before falling in quick succession.

Denesh Ramdin then smashed 33 from 19 balls to help post a total which ultimately proved too much for Hampshire to overcome.

Johann Myburgh was dismissed for a duck in the second over and wickets fell at regular intervals to keep the run chase in check.

Benny Howell's 28 not out was the top score for Jimmy Adams' side, who eventually made 111 for eight from their 20 overs.
