Campbell, Mayers hundreds propel West Indies to victory

LAUDERHILL, Florida, CMC – Hundreds from John Campbell and Kyle Mayers set the West Indies up for a 221-run victory over the United States in their Under-19 One-day series on Tuesday.

Campbell hit the top score of 152 and Mayers supported with 107, as West Indies posted a formidable 368 for seven from their allocation of 50 overs in the third match of the series at the Central Broward Regional Park.
Chasing a revised target of 322 from 42 overs, following a lightning storm, the Americans finished on 101 for five.

Campbell struck 13 fours and five sixes from 96 balls, giving West Indies a rousing start, dominating an opening stand of 104 with his captain Kraigg Brathwaite, who fell for 18.

The visitors slipped to 152 for three in the 25th over before Mayers arrived, and put on 110 for the fourth wicket with Campbell.

After Campbell was dismissed, Mayers, whose innings contained 11 fours and two sixes from 87 balls, added another 79 with Kieron Joseph before the bottom half of the West Indies batting slumped.

Prashanth Nair was the most successful American bowler with five for 57 from nine overs.

West Indies took advantage of their hosts’ lack of experience, with Derone Davis and Brathwaite collecting two wickets apiece in defending the target.

Cameron Mirza made 34 from 115 balls to lead the way for the United States.
