Rain hits Round II of Regional U-19

Basseterre, St Kitts - The second round of matches in the Regional Under-19 limited overs, 50-Over tournament, was completed today across three venues on the island of St Kitts.

Here are the details:

AT CONAREE - Leeward Islands v ICC Americas

The ICC Americas picked up their first win of the Regional Under-19 One Day Tournament with a narrow three wicket victory over the Leeward Islands. The hosts won the toss and elected to bat first on a rain-hit day.

The match was reduced from a 50-over game to a 27-over affair. The Leewards amassed 113/7 from their 27 overs with both Ashawn Hodge and Tristan Hanley making 19 runs each. The ICC Americas bowled particularly, keeping the scoring rate tight through the innings.

Both Stephan Rajasingham and Abraash Khan finished with three wickets each. The visitors' chase saw them lose consistent wickets en route to their victory target. But the mini-partnerships in between the fall of wickets seemed to assist their push for victory.

Steven Taylor led the resistance though, hitting an aggressive 34 from 40 balls in a knock that included five boundaries. Armaan Kapoor also chipped in with 18 runs from as many balls as the ICC Americas registered their first win of the tournament by three wickets.

AT PROGRESS PARK - Guyana v Barbados

The Windward Islands came from behind to beat Guyana in another rain-hit second round match of the Regional Under-19 Tournament. Opting to bat first in the 27-over match, the Windwards compiled 121/8 from their allotted over.

Leading the way for the Windwards was Gian Benjamin with an unbeaten 58. His half century came off 87 balls and included three boundaries. But no other batsman really stepped up to the task. It was left for pacer, Preston Mc Sween, to smash two sixes at the end to end the innings on a high. He was run out for 24 from 18 balls.

Harry Greene took 2-7 from four overs to be Guyana's best bowler while Romario Shepherd had 1-10. Guyana's chase got off to a bad start as they were quickly reduced to 34/2. That score quickly got worst to 69/6. Preston Mc Sween did most of the lower order damage to get the victory for the Windwards, taking 5-15.

Gidron Pope also bowled well taking two wickets. The Guyanese were bowled out for 98 runs just inside 25 overs as they collapsed to a 23 run defeat.

Windward Islands: 121/8 (27 Overs)

Gian Benjamin 58*, Preston Mc Sween 24, Tonius Simon 12
