Barbados trounce Leewards on Day 3
GEORGETOWN, Guyana, CMC – Barbados produced an incisive bowling performance to wreck Leeward Islands and pull off a convincing eight-wicket victory at Enmore here Friday.
After claiming a slim three-run lead on first innings, Barbados then bundled out the Leewards for 119 in their second innings, setting themselves a target of 117.
Kacey Carty top-scored with 29 while Jaeel Clarke chipped in with 27 but left-arm spinners Matthew Jones, with three for 29 and Chad Williams, three for 35, destroyed the innings.
Nicholas Kirton then stroked an unbeaten 49 and Jonathan Drakes weighed in with 30, as Barbados cruised to their target to claim victory on the final day of their third round match in the Regional Under-19 Championship.
Resuming the day on 254 for six, Barbados finished on 295, with Shamar Springer carrying his 118 not out overnight to 128 before being dismissed.
Seamer Jeremiah Louis was the best bowler with four for 33 while off-spinner Shaquille Martina (2-44) and pacer Asharn Hodge (2-50) both finished with two wickets apiece.
The Leewards found themselves in early trouble when they lost Saeed Williams for eight with the score on nine, and Jones then ripped through the top order to reduce the innings to 61 for six.
Clarke then propped up the innings in a defiant 43-run, seventh wicket stand with Martina, who scored 14, to frustrate the Barbadians. Once they were separated, however, the innings folded quickly.
Kirton and Drakes put on 56 in an opening stand to lay a solid foundation for the run chase before Kirton added a further 51 in an unbroken third wicket stand with Jefari Toppin, who scored 22, to see Barbados home.
