GROS ISLET – A scintillating Darren Sammy cameo helped Windward Islands overpower Barbados and keep alive their chances of reaching the play-offs of the Caribbean Twenty20.
Chasing 141 for victory at the Beausejour Cricket Stadium on Thursday night, the Windwards were floundering at 57 for five in the ninth over before Sammy arrived to uncork a blistering 41 and carry his side home with an over to spare.
He shared an exhilarating sixth-wicket stand of 70 with Liam Sebastien, whose run-a-ball unbeaten 33 proved invaluable.
Barbados, fighting to stave off elimination, were in with a chance with 40 required from the last four overs but pacers Tino Best and Javon Searles gave up expensive overs to seal their side’s fate. (CMC)
