Jamaica take third place

JAMAICA captured third place in the Caribbean Twenty20 cricket tournament after defeating Windward Islands by nine runs at Kensington Oval tonight.
After posting 153 for eight, Jamaica restricted Windwards to 144 for nine.
Jamaica’s total was built on Danza Hyatt’s aggressive 43 off 21 balls and opener Xavier Marshall’s 36 off 33 balls.
Windwards were in with an outside chance when they needed 35 runs off the last three overs but the crucial wickets of Linden Lawrence (36) and Gary Mathurin (25) hampered their chances.
Medium-pacer Dave Bernard and leg-spinner Odean Brown each took three wickets.
A crowd of about 4 500 watched the match and the number is expected to grow for the 8 p.m. final between Trinidad and Tobago and English county Hampshire. (HG)
