Brathwaite 100 lifts Pride
LUCAS STREET, Barbados (CMC):
Opener Kraigg Brathwaite's second Regional Super50 century inspired unbeaten Barbados Pride to a commanding 171-run victory over ICC Americas in a one-sided contest at Windward Cricket Ground here yesterday.
In another imperious display by the hosts, they stormed to 282 for nine off their allotted 50 overs, after opting to bat first, and then bundled out ICC Americas for 111 in the 34th over, to seal their fifth straight win.
Test batsman Brathwaite followed up his 101 against Guyana Jaguars just over a week ago with 108 off 134 deliveries, while left-hander Jonathan Carter sustained his good form with 57 and Roston Chase, 40.
Leg-spinner Timil Patel (3-57) and fast bowler Cecil Pervez (3-58) claimed three wickets apiece.
Captain and seamer Jason Holder then crippled the ICC Americas run chase with a brilliant spell of three for 25 from 10 overs, while left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican (2-18) and fast bowler Kemar Roach (2-22) supported with two wickets apiece.
All-rounder Timroy Allen stroked a typically whirlwind 36 off 25 balls, while Alex Amsterdam chipped in with 30.
But they were the only two to pass 20 as ICC Americas slumped to 39 for six in the 12th over and never really recovered.
