UWI turn tables on Carlton

LOUIS HOLDER at Desmond Haynes Oval,

SAGICOR UWI scored a remarkable come-from-behind victory over Carlton to earn 12 valuable points after three declarations were made on the final day of their eighth series LIME Elite match yesterday. In overcast conditions, Carlton, set a target of 186 runs for victory in 25 overs, dramatically lost their last six wickets for 17 runs. This was after UWI had raced to 197 for seven declared off 24 overs in their second innings, with opener Shacaya Thomas making a breezy 59 and captain Kyle Corbin (33), Jonathan Carter (30) and Floyd Reifer (39) all cashing in on some tame Carlton bowling. In their victory bid, Carlton slumped to 49 for four but a fifth-wicket stand of 69 between opener Kirk Gibson, who top scored with 57 and the hard-hitting Dawayne Sealy (40) gave them a glimmer of hope. After Sealy was bowled by Carter, wickets fell steadily thereafter and when Gibson was caught by Anthony Alleyne off the bowling of pacer Carlos Brathwaite, the writing was on the wall. Gibson’s 43-ball knock included two fours and four sixes while Sealy struck six fours in his knock off 30 balls. Brathwaite captured five for 51 in an unbroken spell of 10 overs from the northern end. Carter took four for 12 in just 2.4 overs. UWI had declared their first innings at their first day total of 151 for five, sacrificing the possibility of batting points. Carlton then rattled up 161 for one in 24 overs before the surprise declaration instead of going after much needed batting points which were there for the taking. Opener Shane Moseley top scored with 64 not out with four fours and three sixes off 66 balls, while Kyle Mayers got 61 not out (5 fours, one six).
