Jamaica come from behind, T&T win
Basseterre, St Kitts - The first round of matches in the Regional Under-19 limited overs, 50-Over tournament, was completed today across three venues on the island of St Kitts.
Here are the details:
AT CONAREE - Barbados v T&T
Trinidad and Tobago successfully defended a small total of 170 runs to kick off their Regional 50-over campaign with a win against Barbados.
Having placed second in the 3-Day tournament, the Trinis are looking to rebound and go one better in the shorter form of the game. They didn’t get the ideal start they wanted as they were bowled out inside 50 overs for just 170 runs.
Runs were hard to come by as the T&T batsmen scored just over three runs an over throughout the innings. Brandon Ramdial top scored for the Trinis with 35 while there were also good starts for Jeremy Solozano (27) and Vikash Mohan (22).
Jofra Archer was Barbados’ most impressive bowler, delivering a spell of 10-2-38-4. Jameel Stuart also bowled tightly, finishing with 10-0-35-2. But Mohan, the quick rising star out of T&T, came up trumps with the ball to ensure his side victory. Mohan took 3-18 from 8.4 overs, including a maiden, to set back the Bajan batsmen.
Tion Webster had 2-23 as the Bajans were bowled out for 130 run in 42 overs. Kevin Walcott resisted well with a brave knock of 45 but his efforts weren’t enough. Aaron Jones also looked good, scoring 27. But the Trini bowlers were very impressive, earning a comfortable 40-run victory.
