After receiving a severe bashing from the Caribbean batsmen, that knocked them out of the Champions League, the Diamond Eagles skipper Boeta Dippanaar on Sunday tipped Trinidad and Tobago to win the T20 tournament.

Trinidad and Tobago posted a huge 213 for four following a brilliant batting display and then restricted their rivals to 189 for five to storm into the semifinals.

Dippenaar was impressed with the way the Caribbean batsmen took on their bowling attack.

"They played magnificently well. They are favourites to win the Champions League. Chasing 214 was really tough. Had it been 195 we had a game on," Dippenaar said after the match.

"Had we executed our bowling towards the end, it could have been better."

The South African though was also pleased with his own team's show in the tournament.

"We have played excellent cricket. They (players) have shown that they will play for Eagles in the Champions League for many more years," he said.

The winning captain Daren Ganga was also happy with the performance of his team but warned his boys to not get over- confident.
