A commanding knock of 88 from Christopher Barnwell stole the thunder from Chris Gayle's eighth T20 century and took Guyana past Jamaica in the Caribbean T20 playoff. Guyana now play table-toppers Trinidad and Tobago in the final on Sunday.

They started their chase of 184 poorly, losing opener Derwin Christian in the first over. Although Ramnaresh Sarwan struck three boundaries and a six to keep up with the required run-rate, he dragged one on to his stumps in the fourth over. Trevon Griffith and Barnwell batted responsibly to keep them in the hunt, adding 79 off 55 balls. After that, Barnwell controlled the chase.
