With first strike, Jamaica made a score of 230 from their allotted 50 overs with the top scorer Brenton Parchment with 52. When Trinidad and Tobago replied, they could only muster 202 all out from 49.3 overs - their top scorer being Lendl Simmonds with 64.

The top pick of the Jamaican bowlers were Jerome Taylor 3--37 and Chris Gayle 3--32. "Man of the Match" was awarded to West Indies fast bowler Jerome Taylor. Jamaica now will focus their attention to the four day series against the other Caribbean teams in the region in early 2008.
