Painful loss. That’s how coach Emmerson Trotman described Barbados Pride’s recent six-wicket defeat by defending champions Guyana Jaguars in the Regional Four-day Cricket Championship at Kensington Oval.

Trotman said he was not going to point any fingers, but acknowledged being hurt by the defeat.

“This hurts. I expected better. Shane Dowrich had a good match, Jason Holder played well in the first innings, Roston [Chase] had a good knock in the second innings, so you can’t really point fingers at the senior players. Everyone needed to contribute and take on some responsibility.

“It is a painful loss. We can’t hide from that. Guyana Jaguars scored too many runs. We should have restricted them for a lot less. Unfortunately, we didn’t,” he said. (MK)
