Campbell hits 154 as Under-19s win again
Miami, Florida – A shot-filled century from opener John Campbell powered West Indies Under-19 to another massive win over the United States of America Under-19 in their second 50-over match of the four-match series on Sunday.
The 17-year-old left-hander from Jamaica hit 154 as the Windies reached 339 for four off their 50 overs at the Broward County Cricket Stadium in Luaderhill. They won by 268 runs as the Americans were then shot out for 71 off 28.1 overs.
Seamer Kyle Mayers was again the leading bowler with three for 13.
The day belonged to Campbell, who smashed nine fours and six towering sixes off just 134 balls. His century came from 104 balls and he then upped the tempo with the next 54 runs requiring just 30 balls.
He added 156 for the first wicket with skipper Kraigg Brathwaite, who stroked 53 to follow up his first match century. Allrounder Ramon Senior was also among the runs with 42 while Sunil Ambris (26) and Mayers (19) chipped in at the death.
In the end the West Indies bowling proved too strong for the home side and they were bundled out in double figures for the second match.
