Carter leads Fire Service to victory
AN EXHILARATING display of strokes by Man Of The Match batsman Jonathan Carter led the Barbados Fire Service (BFS) to a five-wicket victory over CAH Ramp in the final of the Grantley Adams International Airport Twenty20 tournament on Sunday night.
Before a large crowd at the Rices Pavilion and Resource Centre, Carter, a Barbados player and West Indies limited-overs selectee, entertained with a breezy 37 off 31 balls, inclusive of three four and two sixes, one of which was hit effortlessly straight into the road off pacer Corey Edwards.
Together with Larando Best, the pair added 72 for the third wicket after their side had slipped to 14 for two in their quest of a victory target of 107.
The game, which seemed all but over, took an interesting twist midway as wicketkeeper Ashley Nurse pulled off three swift leg-side stumpings off the fast bowlers to give the CAH Ramp one last bit of hope with BFS slipping to 89 for five. (LY)
