Champions do it with Pride
FROM CRAB HILL in St Lucy to Bayfield in St Philip, there was a sense of Bajan pride last night. The nation was celebrating the capture of another regional cricket title.
Efficient Barbados Pride, showing immense resilience at a critical stage, defeated Jamaica Scorpions by 59 runs in the final of the WICB Regional Super50 at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.
In the day/night contest that was hard to predict after both teams completed impressive semi-final victories, Barbados Pride posted 271 for nine, thanks to another splendid century from Shai Hope, Jason Holder’s awesome 69 off 47 balls and their hurricane fifth-wicket century partnership that dramatically turned the tide after the opponents had surged into the ascendancy.
