Carl Wright, who scored 8 on his List A debut against Barbados last week, bounced back with an innings of 90 against Trinidad & Tobago yesterday, but it wasn't enough to prevent a six wicket defeat.
The USA were put in by Trinidad & Tobago captain Darren Ganga and the USA lost wickets regularly, with the honourable exception of the aforementioned Wright and his innings of 90. Wicket-keeper Akeem Dodson also showed some resistance with an unbeaten 31.
The Americans batted out their overs for a score of 186/7. Richard Kelly was the pick of the bowlers with 3/34.
Trinidad & Tobago lost Lendl Simmons early, but Adrian Barath and Darren Ganga rebuilt the innings with a partnership of 139. Aditya Thyagarajan gave the Trinidadians a scare, quickly removing Barath for 66, Ganga for 79 and Dwayne Bravo for four to finish wicket figures of 3/30, but they still chased down the target successfully in 38 overs to win by six wickets.
In the other matches of the day, the Leeward Islands beat Barbados by 62 runs and Jamaica beat Canada by nine wickets. The USA will play their last match later today when they play the Combined Campuses and Colleges.
