Rain washes out play between B/dos ICC Americas

Rain stopped play in yesterday’s 5th round West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) U19 Regional 50-over match between Barbados and the lowly placed ICC Americas at the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) ground.

The Americas who were sent into bat after losing the toss, were 55-4 in 26.3 overs before showers forced officials to stop the match at 11:30hrs.

Prior to the stoppage, the Americas top order batsmen again struggled against quality bowling especially the in-form battery of bowlers in the Bajan side.

Pacer Tarik Shorey, spinner Neil Persaud and seamer Matthew Jones each claimed a wicket for Barbados while ICC Americas middle-order batsman Abraash Khan top scored with 23 as wickets fell around him.

With the showers persisting throughout the afternoon, officials decided that with the flooded state of the ground and the possibility of more rain, play for the remainder of the day was virtually impossible.

Meanwhile, at the Enmore Community Development Centre ground, the Windward Islands defeated Trinidad and Tobago by two wickets.

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO  batting first scored 149 for nine off 50 overs with Jeremy Solozano 28, and Tevin Jadoo 21 not out. Gidron Pope took 4-23 and Sherman Lewis 2-33.

The WINDWARD ISLANDS replied with 150 for eight off 48.5 overs with Ryan John 29, Sherman Lewis 26 not out and Roland Cato 24, the principal scorers. Akil Seetal 3-31 and Samuel Roopnarine 3-36 were the major wicket takers.
