Trinidad & Tobago (T&T) achieved a hard-fought five-wicket win in their qualifier with Ruhuna to take a huge step in securing a spot for the Champions League Twenty20 tournament. T&T bowlers stifled Ruhuna by taking the pace off the ball, restricting the Sri Lankan champions to 138. The same tactic worked for Ruhuna as well until Sherwin Ganga clobbered 39 off 15 deliveries to turn the match on its head. Ganga ultimately forged a game-winning partnership with Darren Bravo to power his side to victory.
