Carter, Smith help Barbados past Trinis


PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad - Jonathan Carter scored his maiden century in 50 overs cricket to steer Barbados to a 28-run victory over host Trinidad and Tobago in the NAGICO SUPER50 Regional cricket tournament at the Queen’s Park Oval on Sunday.

Carter shared in two important partnerships for Barbados in reaching 269 for eight off the reduced 45 overs.

It was Barbados’ highest score against Trinidad & Tobago in a limited overs tournament.

Led by left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn 4-23 and pacer Jason Holder 2-23, Barbados restricted Trinidad & Tobago to 241 runs with nine balls to spare.

Earlier, Barbados won the toss and decided to bat in a match reduced to 45 overs because of early afternoon rain.

Carter joined opener Dwayne Smith after Kraigg Brathwaite (2) and Rashidi Boucher (13) were removed to leave Barbados on 57-2.

Carter and Smith shared in a 103-run third-wicket partnership. Smith rushed to 83 off 72 balls which included 10 fours and three sixes before he was caught by Darren Bravo at long-off from a fuller delivery from Rayad Emrit.

Carter also featured in another crucial partnership with Shane Dowrich (35) which yielded 91 runs for the fifth wicket.

Bravo skewed a chance to remove Carter on 82 in the 37th over and before reaching his milestone. Carter went on to play a brilliant innings of 109 runs from 111 balls which included nine fours and five sixes.

The Barbadians were already in full control and piled on the runs to finish on 269 for eight.

Emrit was the most successful bowler for Trinidad & Tobago with 4-50 and a wicket each for Ravi Rampaul, Dwayne Bravo, Kevon Cooper and Imran Khan.

There were solid scores from Denesh Ramdin, who was unbeaten on 48, Darren Bravo (40), Lendl Simmons (37) and Jason Mohammed (32). But the home team lost too many wickets for too little runs.

Benn and Holder were tight in the bowling received good support from all-rounder Smith who took 1-14 from 2.3 overs.

Barbados are on four points, one behind Zone B leaders Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) who infliected a 160-run defeat on the Leeward Islands on Saturday.
