Glee for Leewards
BASSETERRE – Leeward Islands snatched their first points of the Regional Super50 Championship when they beat Barbados by 22 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis Method here yesterday.
Playing at Warner Park, the Leewards restricted Barbados to 164 all out off 46.4 overs, after being asked to bowl first in the rain-marred sixth-round encounter.
They were led by seamer Tonito Willett, who claimed career-best figures of six for 19 from ten overs.
Kyle Mayers top scored with 37 while Sulieman Benn (25), Rashidi Boucher (25), and Kraigg Brathwaite (24), all weighed in to keep Barbados afloat.
At one stage, the visitors were languishing at 79 for seven in the 30th over before Mayers and Ashley Nurse (17) put on a crucial 53 for the eighth wicket. (CMC)
