Phillips leads CCC to victory

CAVE HILL, Barbados,  CMC – An unbeaten 78 from their captain Omar Phillips propelled Combined Campuses & Colleges to a five-wicket victory over Barbados yesterday, and first place as the preliminary competition in the WICB Regional first-class championship draws to a close.

The left-handed opener struck eight fours and one six from 156 balls in close to 3 ¾ hours, as CCC, chasing 173 for victory, reached their target about 45 minutes after lunch on the third day of their seventh round match at the Three Ws Oval.

Phillips formalised the result with his six over long-off from the bowling of leg-spinner Shamarh Brooks to usher CCC to their fourth victory in their most successful season since entering the competition three years ago.
