Reigning champions Barbados began their quest for a third straight regional Under-15 cricket title on a disappointing note yesterday, after they were soundly beaten by Trinidad and Tobago in Antigua yesterday.

Playing at the Vivian Richards Stadium, the Bajans went down by 68 runs in pursuit of a target of 216 in 50 overs.

Barbados made an encouraging start to progress to 62 for one in the 16th over, but once a second-wicket partnership of 47 between opener Micaiah Simmons and Joshua Morris was broken, wickets fell at regular intervals and the two-time defending champions were dismissed for 147 in 42.5 overs.

Simmons made 42 off 65 balls, while Simmons contributed 25 but Barbados lost their way and the last nine wickets fell for 85.

Earlier, Barbados kept Trinidad and Tobago in check after opting to field first.

Despite a four-wicket haul from Nathan Sealy, Barbados were unable to press home the advantage after reducing their opponents to 78 for four in the 23rd over. (HG)
