Batting first, Guyana’s innings never gained momentum, with Hinds removing Kevin Sinclair (4), Tevin Imlach (4), Shimron Hetmyer (3) and Kemol Savory (0) cheaply, and Akeal Hosein bowling Kevlon Anderson for seven.

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.
