   Match Scorecard  
Man of the Match: M Henriques Chepauk, Chennai (28 September 2011)

T&T’s story of the tournament can be summed up as so close and yet so far. Batting first their openers gave them a decent start but they never really got going as at halfway T&T were 57/2 with 42% COW. Simmons top scored with 41 but then next highest score was Ganga’s 21 as T&T’s abject batting performances continued to dog them. T&T ended with 139/6 with 42% COW. In reply NSW got off to a comparatively better start but lost both Watto and Warner as they reached 67/2 after 10 with 82% COW. This is where T&T bowlers starting turning the screws and suddenly runs dried up. Wickets started tumbling as NSW were down to 123/8 after 19 with 37% COW. Needing 17 runs off the last over to win, Henriques smashed Rampaul all over the ground as NSW ended with 139/8 to tie the match. Super over was a repeat of last over as Henriques again smashed Rampaul for 18 runs. Needing 19 to win off 6, Simmons smacked O’Keefe to bring it down to 3 off 1 ball but holed out to lose the match by 2 runs.

  1st Innings (Trinidad & Tobago)- 20 overs Maximum  
arrow 5 overs: T&T 32/0 T&T 47% Barath and Bravo got T&T off to
      a slow but steady start as they raised 32 runs off the first five overs without losing any wickets. The slow RR got T&T’s COW down by 2% to 47%.
arrow 10 overs: T&T 57/2 T&T 42% NSW bowlers put more pressure on
      T&T batsmen as runs dried up and they picked up a couple of wickets. Just 25 runs came in this period as T&T’s COW dropped by 5% to 42%.
arrow 15 overs: T&T 89/3 T&T 38% T&T were not quite able to break
      the stranglehold as they tried to increase their scoring rate as they lost Simmons who was batting well. 32 runs were scored in this period as T&T’s COW dipped by 4% to 38%.
arrow 20 overs: T&T 139/6 T&T 42% A late flourish courtesy the lower
      middle order saw T&T lose 3 wickets but score 50 runs off the last 5 overs getting themselves to 139/6. This saw T&T’s COW improve by 4% to 42%.
  2nd Innings (New South Wales : Target 140) - 20 overs Max  
arrow 5 overs: NSW 33/0 NSW 65% NSW needed a decent start and
      Watto and Warner gave them just that racking up 33 runs without ta.king any risks. This period saw NSW’s COW go up by 7% to 65%.
arrow 10 overs: NSW 67/2 NSW 82% T&T picked up both the openers
      but NSW scored 34 runs in this period to remain ahead of T&T at the half way mark. At this point NSW’s COW was up by 17% to 82%.
arrow 15 overs: NSW 89/3 NSW 59% T&T’s strength in this tournament
      has been their bowling and their bowlers got them back in the game by giving away just 22 runs in this session. This saw NSW’s COW drop by 23% to 59%
arrow 20 overs: NSW 139/8 NSW 50% Few more good overs and NSW
      were in deep trouble needing 17 off the last over to win but a blinder of a cameo by Henriques saw them tie the match before Henriques’ heroics in the super over won it for NSW.
