J/ca collapse leaves B/dos chasing 192 for victory

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados,  CMC – Jamaica’s batting was rocked by an inspired spell of medium-fast bowling from Jonathan Carter, upstaging another purposeful effort from Nikita Miller here  yesterday and leaving Barbados to chase 192 for victory in the Regional Four-Day Championship.

Simon Jackson hit the top score of 59, Carlton Baugh Jr made 32 and Jamaican captain Tamar Lambert got 28, but Carter upset the visitors’ plans, as they were bowled out for 188 in their second innings on the second day of their first round match at Kensington Oval.
Carter was the pick of the Barbadian bowlers, ending with the flattering figures of four for none from three overs while fellow medium-fast bowler Kevin Stoute supported with two for 26 from 11 overs.

Jamaica were unable to make any headway in the five overs they bowled in the 20 minutes before the stumps were drawn, as Kraigg Brathwaite, not out on seven, and Rashidi Boucher, not out on six, carried the home team to 13 without loss in their second innings.

Brathwaite had the pleasure of scoring his 1,000th run in first-class matches, when he played Andrew Richardson defensively into the covers for a single.

This all unfolded after Miller took five for 33 from 20.1 overs, as Barbados were bowled out for 162 about eight minutes before the scheduled lunch interval to concede a first innings lead of three.

Sheldon Cotterrell ended with two for 33 from nine overs and Richardson finished with two for 43 from 14 overs.

Carter top scored with 63 for the Barbadians but none of the other batsmen that took the crease on the day reached 20, and the hosts lost their last four wickets for 42, after resuming at 107 for six. The left-hander struck nine boundaries from 110 balls in 147 minutes.

Jamaica then suffered an early setback, when opener Xavier Marshall was caught at forward short leg off Miguel Cummins for six.
They stumbled to 31 for two when Nkrumah Bonner was caught at second slip off Christopher Jordan for nine, and were 59 for three when Jermaine Blackwood was caught at forward short leg for 17 off Roston Chase’s uncomplicated off-spin.

For close to 1-½ hours, Lambert and Jackson did their side’s bidding with resolute batting mixed with crisp strokes.
They carried the Jamaicans to 107 for three at tea and put on 60 for the fourth wicket before Lambert was caught at deep fine leg for 28 from a top-edged hook at a short, rising ball from Stoute.

Jackson reached his 50 from 95 balls when he languidly drove a low full toss from Stoute through extra cover for his ninth four, but he tried to repeat the stroke in the next over from the same bowler and was caught at cover.

Dave Bernard Jr fell lbw for five to off-spinner Ashley Nurse for the third time in as many innings on this trip, leaving Jamaica wobbling on 141 for six.

But Miller joined Baugh and they stemmed the fall of wickets with a stand of 38 before Carter ripped out the remaining wickets with his under-rated bowling.
