DENNERY, St Lucia – Half-centuries from Kyle Mayers and Kraigg Brathwaite briefly raised Barbados’ hopes but rain once again squashed them, as their fourth-round match in the TCL Group West Indies Under-19 Challenge against Guyana finished in a disappointing no-decision yesterday.Resuming at their overnight five without loss, Barbados were on course for first innings points at 171 for four when rain halted play at 3:25 p.m.With no ease in the adverse weather, umpires called play off two hours later, leaving Barbados especially disappointed at only gaining three points.Mayers smashed a pugnacious 74 while Brathwaite crafted an unbeaten 69, as Barbados pressed on after play started an hour and 40 minutes late on the final day due to damp bowlers’ run-ups at the Dennery Playing Field.They reached 40 without loss at lunch and went in pursuit of much needed first innings points after the break with positive cricket.
