BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — It was carded as a day/night affair but Trinidad and Tobago required less than three hours to dispose of a listless Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners by nine wickets, in their second match of the Regional Super50 here Thursday.

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.

Veteran left-hander Ryan Hinds top-scored with a stroke-filled 32 from 19 balls but was just one of two batsmen to reach double figures, as Marooners went from dominant in their opening win against Windward Islands Volcanoes to dreadful, all in the space of three days.

West Indies opener Evin Lewis then added to the Marooners' woes, blasting a breathtaking unbeaten 70 from just 42 balls, as Red Force raced to their paltry target in the 12th over.

The aggressive left-hander showed little mercy, smashing nine fours and four sixes as he raced to his half-century off 28 balls.

He was particularly severe on Aaron Daley, taking 20 from the medium pacer's third over — the 10th over of the innings — by belting a pair of fours and sixes.

Earlier, Cottrell produced a lethal new-ball burst to knock over captain Kyle Corbin (0), Kjorn Ottley (8) and Oraine Williams (7), and reduce Marooners to 22 for three in the fifth over.
