Stoute, Carter stand up
RESPECT IS DUE to us!
That’s probably was what returning all-rounders Kevin Stoute and Jonathan Carter were batting for during a 65-run seventh-wicket partnership at Kensington Oval, yesterday.
Unceremoniously dropped for the last game, Stoute and Carter linked up with Barbados Pride struggling on 154 for six against leaders Guyana Jaguars on the opening day of their seventh-round top-of-the-table regional Professional Cricket League first-class match.
While Carter was out for a fluent 38, Stoute remained unbeaten on 56 as Barbados Pride rallied to a respectable 274 all out off 88.3 overs at the close of play.
Stoute, who was Barbados Pride’s leading wicket-taker before he was dropped even though he was without a half-century, hit five fours and a lofted six over long-off in his 99-ball innings in 146 minutes.
