Well done, son
The triumphant Barbadian cricketers, winners of the WICB Regional Under-19 One-Day Championship, returned home yesterday to a warm welcome from family, friends and supporters.
Rebounding from the disappointment of placing third in the three-day format, Barbados played unbeaten behind a dominating display with the bat and ball.
One such player was off-spinner Chaim Holder, whose ten wickets came at an average of 18.9 runs. He also had best figures of four for 29, ending as the second leading bowler in that form of the game.
Captain Kraigg Brathwaite also came good, leading all batsmen with 297 runs, including three half centuries at an average of 99. He was also one of the top five bowlers.
