Barbados hold on, Jamaica win
Basseterre, St Kitts - The third and final day of the third round of matches in the Regional Under 19 tournament was completed today across three venues in St Kitts.
Here are the details:
AT EGSC MOLINEAUX - Jamaica v Leeward Islands
Jamaica made light work of the Leeward Islands to gain an outright victory over the hosts on Day 3. After enforcing the follow-on, having dismissed the Leeward Islands for 142 in their first innings, gaining a lead of 162 runs, the Jamaicans were also ruthless in the second innings.
The Leewards started Day 3 on 18/0, but within ten runs were reduced to 28/3. Fabian Allen rocked the Leewards top order. Fighting half centuries from Avier Christian (51) and Jeremiah Louis (53) limped the hosts to 185 all out.
Allen took 4-47 and Christopher Powell took 3-40 that never allowed the Leeward Islands batsmen to settle down. It meant that the Jamaicans were set a meager target of 24 runs to win, which openers Odaine Mc Catty and Leroy Lug knocked off in less than five overs.
Jamaica won convincingly by 10 wickets to virtually move out of sight at the top of the table.

AT CONAREE - Guyana v Windward Islands
Tagenarine Chanderpaul hit an unbeaten 66 on Day 3 but it was the Windward Islands batting that squandered a chance to come from behind to defeat Guyana. Guyana started Day 3 on 42/3, leading the Windwards by 165 runs.
In the search for quick runs, quick wickets also fell as the score got to 70/5. However, Chanderpaul's patient knock of 66 from 136 balls, which contained eight fours provided the stability that Guyana required. The only other real contribution was from Akashay Homraj (31), who happened to be the only other batsman in Guyana's second innings to get into double figures.
Larry Edward (5-37) led the Windwards' fightback, which left them needing 237 runs for victory. However, the batsmen did not have the fighting spirit as Edward, collapsing to 96 all out. So bad was the batting, Keone George top scored with 30 while the second highest score was from Taryck Gabriel who made 19.
Leading Guyana to victory were Gudakesh Motie-Kanhai (4-20) and Vishoa Narayan (3-9). Guyana won by 140 runs.

AT WARNER PARK - Barbados v T&T
Another decent performance from Jeremy Solozano was not enough for the national under-19 cricket team to earn an outright win, as Barbados escaped with a draw in their third round clash of the West Indies Cricket Board Regional tournament in St Kitts.
Chasing 194 for the win, Barbados seemed to be playing for a draw at the tea break. Barbados were crawling along at 80/3 after 37 overs. Some quick wickets after tea gave T&T a glimmer of hope as Barbados were wobbling on 120/7 with seven overs remaining.
However, an unbroken eight-wicket partnership between Jofra Archer (13) and Jerome Jones (7) ensured Barbados a draw, as they closed on 134/7.
Earlier, T&T got a disastrous start to the day’s proceedings. After resuming on their overnight 123/2 in their second innings, T&T were reduced to 131/5 with Solozano and Camillo Carimbocas already back in the pavilion.
Solozano and Carimbocas were on 52 not out and 40 not out respectively overnight, but Solozano was dismissed in the first over of the day for 56, while Carimbocas fell shortly after for 46. Solozano has been T&T’s top batsman in the tournament, scoring over 200 runs in the competition thus far.
Chad Williams was the pick of the bowlers for Barbados, taking 4/27 as T&T crumbled for 184, with an overall lead of 193 runs. Courtesy The Trinidad Guardian
