Carter’s ton does it for UWI
Call it?Carter’s Day.
Barbados and West Indies A player Jonathan Carter reigned supreme yesterday, as he struck a brilliant 44-ball century in Sagicor UWI’s 77-run victory over Yorkshire in a second series Sagicor Twenty20 match.
But it wasn’t just about Carter’s batting. Right after dominating with the willow to score 105 as UWI?reached 252 for five in their 20 overs, Carter then snapped up four Yorkshire wickets in his four overs.
Carter’s bowling halted a spirited Yorkshire in their tracks, as the home team had cruised to 95 for two, before capitulating down the stretch.
In his time at the crease, Carter belted 11 fours and eight sixes. He added 119 for the fourth wicket with Kavem Hodge (54) as the visitors took Yorkshire’s bowling to the sword.
In Yorkshire’s reply, Ryan Layne made a stroke-filled 54 off just 28 deliveries including five fours and two lofted sixes while opener Junior Moore hit 40 off 28 balls, as the hosts ended on 175 for eight.
