Rocked by a brilliant opening spell from Terrance Hinds, Harpy Eagles could only manage 105, being dismissed with as many as 15.3 overs remaining. An unbeaten half-century from the in-form Darren Bravo then catapulted Red Force into the final, extending Guyana’s wait for a regional 50-over title, the last of which came in 2005. Red Force will now face the winner of Thursday’s second semi-final between Barbados Pride and the Leeward Island Hurricanes in Saturday’s final.

Sherfane Rutherford (30 off 52; 3x4s, 1×6) and Tagenarine Chanderpaul (22 off 43; 3x4s) tried to put up a fight, but the early damage was too severe. Richie Looknauth (0) Gudakesh Motie (8), Veerasammy Permaul (8*) and Nial Smith (8) were the other batters dismissed, as Hinds took 4-15 from overs and Yannic Cariah 2-14 from 2.3 overs. Sunil Narine produced a miserly spell of 10-3-12-1 to mount further pressure on the Guyanese. Red Force then marched to a six-wicket victory in 27.4 overs, with Bravo hitting an unbeaten 53 off 70 balls (8x4s) and opener Kjorn Ottley making 35 off 59 (5x4s). Left-arm spinner Motie took 3-20 off seven overs.
