Barbados, Ja romp to easy wins
KINGSTOWN, St Vincent, CMC):
Both Barbados and Jamaica expectedly recorded comfortable victories against the Leeward and Windward Islands, respectively, on the final day of play in the second round of matches in the Regional Under-19 Championship yesterday.
Entering the final day at Park Hill playing field on 10 for three and requiring another 239 runs for an unlikely victory, the Leewards were dismissed for 158.
Barring a sensational collapse, Jamaica were expected to complete an easy win over the Windwards, having entered the final day needing just 33 more runs with eight wickets intact.
Resuming from their overnight score of 13 for two, Jamaica found themselves in a bit of bother when they lost the wicket of opener Kirk McKenzie with the score on 20.
However, Andre McCarthy, who scored an unbeaten 21, and Carlos Brown (12 not out) carried their team to safety with no further surprises to end on 47-3.
