Thank you for logging on to our live coverage over the past four days. It was a pleasure to provide you with live updates and we look forward to providing this service in the future. Do enjoy the rest of the day, and remember to praise T&T's 'Red Force' for the victory and the memorable moments they provided.

MAN-OF-THE-MATCH: Trinidad & Tobago's captain, Denesh Ramdin, for his brilliant 151* in T&T's first innings afetr they were in trouble at 100/4, and his 12* this morning to steer his team to victory.

DAY 4 SUMMARY: The Windward Islands began the morning on 232/9 in their second innings and progressed to 258 before G. Mathurin was caught at first slip by Bravo off the bowling of Reyad Emrit. They gave T&T 98 runs to chase for victory after having conceded a first innings deficit of 161.

T&T began their victory chase well with Justin Gullien and Imran Khan looking very comfrotable as they progressed to 79/0 after 12 overs. But the flooring appear to fall out from under T&T as they lost six wickets for five runs to be 84/6 in the 17th over, before Ramdin and Mohammed (IG) saw them home.

The spin duo of Liam Sebastien 5-3-25-3, and Shane Shillingford 7-0-30-3, shared the wicket between them in a creditable bowling performance..

VICTORY: T&T 98/6 (Ramdin 12*, G. Mohammed 2*) T&T won by four wickets.

It took captain Denesh Ramdin having to come to the wicket and score 12 effortless runs to ensure a win for T&T after they were cruising on 79/0 in the twelfth over. Ramdin hits a boundary and then a single to get the five runs required.

After 19 overs: T&T 92/6 (G. Mohammed 2*, Ramdin 6*

T&T are just five runs away from victory.

After 18 0vers T&T 87/6 (Ramdin 2*, G. Mohammed 1*)

It looks like Ramdin will have to lead by example again to ensure T&T take victory.

WICKET: T&T 84/6 Emrit LBW Shillingford 0.

Amazing scenes on the field from the Windward Islands as they have captured six wickets for the addition of just five runs. Emrit is trapped LBW, a decision that looked quite good.

Are we going to witness a total self destruction by T&T?

WICKET: T&T 84/5 Ganga c Fletcher b Shillingford 5.

Game on now! Ganga pushes to short leg and the catch is accepted by Fletcher. Windwards are back in the game.

WIICKET: T&T 84/4.  J Mohammed b Sebastien 0.

Mohammed tries to pull Sebastien & misses the ball, Sebastien rattles his stumps. T&T need to be careful having lost four quick wickets in the space of five overs.

After 16 overs: T&T 84/3 (Ganga 5*, J. Mohammed 0*)

Ganga and Mohammed will be looking to get T&T home without the loss further wickets. They are just 14 runs away from victory.

WICKET: T&T 82/3 Bravo c Sammy b Sebastien 0.

Bravo faced only two balls before edging one to first slip where Sammy snapped up the catch. Shillingford gets two wickets in the over. T&T are slipping just a bit.

WICKET: T&T 81/2. KHan c Mathurin  b Shillingford for 29.

Khan did not get to the pitch of one from Shillingford and played a lofted shot back past the bowler. Mathurin had to dive forward at mid off as the ball was dying on him. A very good catch in the end.

WICKET: T&T 79/1Guillen c Mathurin b Sebastien 41.

Guillen gives it away. He tries to cut hard but only manages a top edge to cover.He was looking set for a half century having just executed a beautiful cover drive off Sebastien to add four runs to his total, but probably got over ambitious and lost his wicket in the process. Darren Ganga strolls out to the middle

After 11 overs: T&T 65/0 (Gullien 34*, Khan 26*)

Sebastien was introduced into the attack and immediately Gullien went after him. A drive through midwicket was followed by a lusty blow back over the bowler head which cleared the long on fence for six. Not a good introduction for the bowler.

After 9 overs: T&T 52/0 (Khan 22*, Gullien 21*)

T&T batsmen are making light work of the victort target. Gullien is growing in confidence as he got on the front foot and punched a delivery pitched up to him over the man at cover for four. Pascal did not like the manner in which he was treated but it was a shot of pure confidence.

After 8 overs: T&T 46/0 (Gullien 17*, Khan 20*)

The highlight of the over was a beautiful ondrive from KHan that split the fielders at mid off and cover on its way to the boundary. Shillingford's first over costing him eight runs.

T&T's Reply: Justin Gullien and Imran Khan have opened Trinidad and Tobago's second innings in chase of 98, and the pair have progressed to 38 without loss after seven overs. Gullien is 16* and Khan on 13*

Welcome to the final day’s live coverage, Day 4, of the WICB Regional Four Day Tournament’s fourth round fixture between Trinidad and Tobago and the Windward Islands at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

The update is that the Windwards were dismissed for 258 early this morning. The last batsman out being Garey Mathurin caught at slips by Bravo off the bowling of Reyad Emrit. The lead is 97, meaning T&T need to score 98 to conclude an outright victory after having already sealed first innings points.
