Mixed fortunes for island’s cricketers

The ICC Americas team lost their final match in the West Indies Under-19 Tournament in St Vincent, going down by seven wickets to Barbados at Arnos Vale Ground to finish without a win in the tournament.

Bermudian pair Chare Smith and Nzari Paynter both played for the Americas, Smith picking up the first Barbados wicket on 33 in the sixth over as they chased the 203 all out posted by the Americas in their 50 overs. Paynter was out for a duck after facing three balls batting at No 7. Smith was not out on one, batting at No 10. Smith, who shared the new ball with Abrassh Khan, finished with one for 47 from nine overs as Sahil Patel led their bowling with two for 26 from ten overs with three maidens. Paynter bowled three overs, giving up 23 runs.

The Bajans were boosted in their run chase by an unbroken fourth wicket stand of 113 between Leniko Boucher (69) and Yvan Grant (50).

Earlier, openers Sagar Patel (32) and Akashdeep Gill (85) led the Americas batting, sharing in an opening stand of 56 in fifteen overs. Gill hit eight fours and two sixes off 146 balls in 204 minutes at the crease.

In yesterday's other matches, Guyana beat Jamaica by 34 runs, 190 to 156 for eight, while Windwards had a short match against Leewards. The Leeward Islands were dismissed for just 54 in 20 overs while Windwards took just 6.2 overs to score 58 for two for the victory.
