Can’t touch Jamaica
JAMAICA?are the undisputed kings of first-class cricket in the Caribbean with five consecutive titles.
After conceding first innings honours, the Jamaicans didn’t lie down and play dead but rattled quick second innings runs before declaring an hour before lunch, setting Barbados 230 runs for victory.
An hour after the interval, the Regional Four-Day Final was all over as the Jamaicans ruthlessly rolled over Barbados for a meagre 90 runs to emphatically win by 139 runs.
It was the third time in this year’s tournament that Barbados were dismissed under 100 runs and the batsmen had some uncomfortable moments against the Jamaican bowling.
