The Tobagonians were restricted when they batted by the excellent bowling of Sameer Ali who snatched five wickets for 29 runs in just 6.5 overs. Jayden Seales shared in the spoils with a three-wicket haul and conceded only nine runs in six overs of which four were maidens. Central romped to victory in 10.4 overs of the allotted 50 overs, finishing on 70/2.
