Hope's XI beat Jacobs' XI again in trial

Barbados Cricket Association article.

Bridgetown, Barbados - Places in the Combined Campuses & Colleges (CCC) squad are apparently tight for the WICB NAGICO Super50 championship in Trinidad & Tobago from January 30 to February 16 but left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican again stood out with the ball in helping Kyle Hope's XI to defeat Steven Jacobs' XI by 24 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method in the third CCC trial match.

Playing in another rain-affected match at 3Ws Oval, Warrican, a former West Indies Under-19 team player who has also turned out for Barbados in a couple first-class matches in his debut season in 2012, took three for 24 off seven overs as Jacobs' side, chasing a revised target of 164 in 35 overs, were limited to 139 for eight.

Guyanese Jacobs, the newly-appointed CCC captain, topscored with 34 off 39 balls including four boundaries and one six.

Dominican spinner Kavem Hodge picked up two for 29 off seven overs.

The 21-year-old Warrican snatched four for nine off 8.2 overs in the first trial match and conceded just 17 runs from ten overs despite being wicket-less in the second. If he is left out of the 14-man squad, it would be most unfortunate.

Hope's XI made 138 for six off 35 overs after winning the toss. Former CCC captain Kyle Corbin, who scored a century in the first Barbados trial match at Desmond Haynes Oval on December 10 but fell cheaply in the first two CCC trial matches, showed a return to form with the topscore of 49. 

He faced 64 balls and struck three sixes and two fours.

Corbin and Trinidadian Nicolas Alexis added 69 off 91 balls including four sixes and two fours for the third wicket. Alexis scored 20, also off 64 deliveries with one four and one six.

Kesrick Williams, a fast bowler from St. Vincent & the Grenadines, took two for 17 off five overs and off-spinner Jacobs, two for for 23 off six overs.

The CCC squad is to be announced soon.
