News day / Jason Mohammeds unit stifled the visitors to 81 all out in just 26 overs via a majestic spell of four for 25 from the debuting Imran Khan before racing to their target in 12.5 overs. Kyle Hope once more garnered plaudits with an enterprising knock of 40 from just 27 balls to maintain TT s unbeaten record.
ICC Americas won the toss and chose to bat first but encountered a stingy Red Force, with just two batsmen making double figures.
Man-of-the-match Khan, in for the in-form Jon Russ Jaggesar, spun circles around the minnows, ably supported by medium-pacer Rayad Emrit (two for 19) and Akeal Hosein (two for six).
Emrit and Narsingh Deonarine opened the attack with consecutive maidens before Steven Taylor departed for three, slashing an Emrit delivery way outside offstump to wicketkeeper, Steven Katwaroo. Nitish Kumar pulled the same bowler to Kjorn Ottley at deep backward-square to leave the visitors reeling at 10 for two in the sixth.
Richards scalped opener, Akeem Dodson (8) with his third ball after the batsman mistimed to a brilliant catch by Hope at backward point. Srimantha Wijeratne kept composure and avoided navigating singles by taking it to Emrit.
He deftly punched the pacer through point for four and then followed up by hammering Richards with a couple fours off his second over through cover and straight back down the ground.
The Americas were reduced to 49 for four when Deonarine trapped Alex Amsterdam (5) LBW. Without a run added, Khan began his destruction, trapping Wijeratne LBW for 30 from 39.
Khan then nabbed Nhavneet Dhaliwal caught and bowled in his next over, paving the way for Akeal Hosein to remove Hamza Tariq in similar fashion, leaving the Americas stunned at 58 for seven in the 21st. Khan then removed Asad Ghous while Hosein took care of Danial Ahmed.
The champions began their chase in style, with Hope smashing Allens opening over for 15.
Kjorn Ottley then drove quickie Jeremy Gordon to the boundary.
Ghous then entered the attack but was immediately flayed for three boundaries by Hope – one past square-leg and two through cover as the Red Force raced to 37 without loss from five overs. Hope brought up the teams fifty in 6.1 overs by driving skipper Kumar for four more. Kumar proved expensive with Ottley also dispatching him for a maximum over longoff an over later. Ahmed, however, avenged his skipper by bowling Hope who seemed to lose his footing in the crease. The red-hot Bajan ended with seven fours and one six with the score at 59 in the 10th.
Denesh Ramdin, replacing a rested Evin Lewis, came to the wicket with 23 needed, and powered Ghous for three boundaries to seal the win in the 13th. Ramdin made 18 from 13 with Ottley anchoring on 24 from 37 (three fours, one six) to leave the hosts eager to face Barbados Pride on Sunday at the same location from 1.30 pm local time. Red Force are on 22 points with Barbados (14), Jamaica (10) and ICC Americas (2) rounding things out
TT crush ICC Americas, win Super50 Group A
