Shamarh Brooks had a lean time with the bat during the regional cricket season this year, but he has bounced back in local competitions. Brooks, who captained Barbados in the latter part of the 2012 four-day tournament, yesterday became the first batsman to post 500 runs in the 2012 LIME Elite Division 1 competition. In a typically attractive innings, Brooks scored 90 for Super Centre Spartan against ICBL Empire in the local derby at Queen’s Park, but missed out on becoming the second batsman to complete two centuries this season. Here, Brooks cutting during his innings that carried his aggregate for the season to 514 runs.
