Barbados draw first blood in Inshan Ali Series

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – A penetrative spell of fast-medium bowling from Shakeel Turney set Barbados Under-13s up for a five-wicket victory over Trinidad & Tobago Under-13s in the Inshan Ali One-day Trophy Series on Tuesday.

Turney grabbed four wickets for 11 runs from 7.2 overs, as T&T were dismissed for a paltry 76 in 33.2 overs after being sent in to bat at the Desmond Haynes Oval.

No T&T batsman reached 20 and left-hander Brandon Maharaj with 13 and tailender S. Batoosingh with 11 were the only double-figure contributors.

Tremaine Harris hit the top score of 17, Hasani Newton and Deswin Currency gathered 14 apiece.

Barbados take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
