ST ELIZABETH – Barbados staged a grand fightback to beat Trinidad and Tobago by 22 runs in their second round WICB Under-15 match yesterday.
Starting the second and final day on 53 for five in their second innings – with a lead of just 13 – Barbados rallied to 126 at the Alpart Sports Club.
The late resistance was provided mainly by Micael Stuart, who hit an unbeaten 45.
Trinidad and Tobago’s attack was dominated by Amrit Kistow’s five-wicket haul.
Defending a modest target of 87, Barbados hit back to dismiss Trinidad and Tobago for 64.
The damage was caused by Jarion Hoyte and Joshua Bishop, who both collected four-wicket hauls.
Left-arm spinner Bishiop grabbed four for 17 to complete an eight-wicket match haul, while medium-pacer Hoyte took four for 24.
It was defending champions Barbados’ second successive win following a comfortable eight-wicket victory over hosts Jamaica in the first round.
In another match, Windward Islands rebounded from defeat in the opening series to easily beat Guyana by nine wickets.
Barbados will oppose Windwards in their third round, starting on Friday. (HG)
