UWI teach schoolboys a lesson
SAGICOR UWI’s students turned teachers yesterday to administer a severe 58-run caning to Guardian General Barbados Youth and easily take a place in the semi-finals.
Winning the toss and batting, UWI posted a mammoth 186 for nine, behind a stroke-filled 117-run opening partnership between the inform, Vincentian pair of Miles Bascombe and skipper Romel Currency.
Like their senior opponents, the Youth’s reply soared rapidly through an encouraging start by Shane Parris and Clint St. Hill who put on 70 in the first eight overs, but declined just as quickly to be rolled over for 128 in 19.2 overs.
Bascombe bullied the bowlers for a quickfire 82 off just 45 balls, punctuated with nine fours and four sixes. He rendered seamer Kyle Mayers’ outstanding figures of five for 30 for the youngsters as merely academic.
