BARBADOS captured the WICB Regional three-day cricket title yesterday despite playing to a draw with Guyana in the final match at Desmond Haynes Oval.
The Bajans failed to fashion an outright win after going into the final day in a strong position, but the draw was enough to put them comfortably ahead of Guyana with 45.5 points to 38.
Trinidad and Tobago earned 37, Windward Islands, 36, Jamaica, 29 and the Leeward Islands, 21.5.
It was a repeat performance as Barbados won the tournament here in 2008.
It was also the fifth success at home out of the last six Under-19 tournaments held here.
This time around, the Bajan boys clinched the title without winning a game but the excellent work of fast bowlers Darnell Greenidge (18) and Akeem Jordan (14), who combined for 32 wickets, earned Barbados 16 bonus points.Please read the full story in today’s WEEKEND NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
