Kevin Umroa’s first 10 wicket haul was not enough to stop Barbados from recording a slim three-wicket win over Guyana on the final day in the Cricket West Indies (CWI) Regional Under-19 three day tournament at Playing Hill Playing Field, St Vincent and the Grenadines yesterday.
Umroa, who was awarded the player of the match for his five wicket hauls in both innings ended with match figures of 10-134 as his team slid to their second straight defeat.
Guyana posted 203 and 142 with Barbados scoring 214 in their first innings and responding to the chase with 134-7 after resuming the final day on 31 without loss.
Umroa removed opener Shain Braithwaite with a sharp caught and bowled for 22 while Ashmead Nedd snared two quick wickets in back-to-back overs to stun Barbados at 64-3.
Barbados slipped further with Mekhail Marshall, Antonio Morris and Nyeem Young falling in a cluster and with Nico Reifer dismissed for 36 after edging to the wicket keeper, Guyana were back in the contest.
Kilano Braithwaite’s 21-ball 19 was the back bone of the chase on the final day with Mathew Forde and Joshua Bishop’s unbeaten knock of 14 and 16 respectively was enough to see them through to the victory.
