U-19 Bajans win again

Social Share

Barbados, after cruising at one stage, lost direction midway but prevailed with a hard-fought four-wicket win with six balls to spare over rivals Trinidad and Tobago in the second round of the WICB regional one-day championship yesterday.
Needing 13 runs off the last two overs, the defending champions reached the target of 198 off the final ball of the 49th over when Marlon Welcome-Goodman drove Anthony Simmons to cover for one.
Carlos Maynard eased the pressure with a four through extra-cover and a six over long on. He finished unbeaten on 11 and Welcome-Goodman, 27, and they added 17 in 11 deliveries.
After the early loss of Shayne Moseley, the inform Shai Hope joined Craig St Hill and they kept the scorecard ticking over during a heavy diet of spin which both played exceptionally well.
