Shillingford takes five on comeback
Shane Shillingford has made an immediate impact in his first bowl in club cricket in Barbados with a five-wicket haul in the Sagicor General Super Cup 50-over tournament yesterday.
The Dominican-born West Indies off-spinner took five for 34 as ESAF Pickwick easily defeated Guardian General Barbados Youth by six wickets in their third series match at Foursquare Oval.
He was ably supported by out-of-favour West Indies fast bowler Tino Best, four for 35 as they set the platform for victory by bowling out the schoolboys for 138.
Shillingford dented the middle order after a second wicket stand between West Indies batsman Kraigg Brathwaite, who top scored with 47 and Craig St Hill (25) while Best, after claiming an early wicket, polished off the remaining batsmen.
Pickwick then easily reached a revised target of 123 in 40 overs following an interruption for rain after an opening partnership of 51 between Jamal Phillips (36) and Clint St Hill (21). (AI)
