T&T roll over tamely as Barbados win big

Bridgetown, Barbados, CMC – Barbados crushed archrivals Trinidad and Tobago by an innings and 60 runs inside three days, to make a bold statement in the Regional Four-Day Championship here Sunday.

Spinners Ashley Nurse and Sulieman Benn shared eight wickets as T&T, resuming the day on 44 without loss in their second innings following on, were bundled out for 199, 40 minutes before tea on the penultimate day of their fourth round match at Kensington Oval.

Nurse claimed four for 64 and Benn, four for 66, as T&T lost ten wickets for 155 runs in just under two sessions, to surrender meekly.

Evin Lewis converted his overnight unbeaten 37 into a top score of 61 while captain Rayad Emrit got 30, Adrian Barath 26 and wicketkeeper Steven Katwaroo, 25, but the first innings deficit of 359 proved too daunting.

Champion batsman Darren Bravo failed for the second time in the game, following up his first innings for with just 19.

The victory, set up by a first innings total of 479 for eight declared, handed Barbados 19 points while T&T walked away with just two.

Openers Lewis reached his second first class half-century as he and Barath extended their partnership to 66, before being separated. The left-handed Lewis was first to fall when he missed a forward defensive prod at Benn and was lbw, after facing 68 balls in 68 minutes, and striking nine fours and three sixes.

There was no sign of tragedy when Barath and Bravo added a further 38 for the second innings, to push T&T up to 104 for one in the second hour of play.

However, things fell apart quickly when Bravo cut seamer Jason Holder to backward point and three overs later, Barath followed to a catch at the wicket off Benn, after facing 107 balls in two hours and seven minutes at the crease.

When Jason Mohammed was caught at leg slip by Jonathan Carter off Nurse for two, T&T were in strife at 114 for four, having lost three wickets for ten runs in the space of six overs.

Emrit and Katwaroo held up Barbados’s charge with a 40-run fifth wicket stand, which took T&T to lunch at 138 for four.

However, the floodgates opened in the second session once Augustus was held at the wicket off Benn for 14. Emrit, who struck three fours and a six off just 34 balls, was held at cover by Omar Phillips off seamer Carlos Brathwaite at 158 for six, as T&T lost their last six wickets for 45 runs.
