Dowrich, Carter give Barbados the edge

Kingston, Jamaica, CMC – Wicketkeeper/batsman Shane Dowrich ended his long wait for a first class century as Barbados got the better of the exchanges on the second day of their Regional Four-Day game against Jamaica on Saturday.

The enterprising right-hander, in his 30th first class match, hit 102 to help Barbados to a massive 423 all out at Sabina Park, in their fifth round contest.

At the close, Jamaica were 150 for four after losing two wickets in the day’s final over from part-time seamer Jonathan Carter (2-4). Jermaine Blackwood has so far top scored with 64.

Overall, Dowrich faced 253 balls in 5-1/4 hours at the crease, striking five fours.
