Barbados TODAY was there. See pages 36 & 37 in this evening’s e-paper (http://epaper.barbadostoday.bb) for this pictorial review.
West Indies’ plans for a 3-0 clean sweep of their Twenty20 International series against England were thwarted at Kensington Oval today.
In perhaps the most thrilling game of the series England won by five-runs before a large, excited crowd comprised of hundreds of English visitors. And they had a Barbadian-born lad to thank for their morale-boosting victory.
Chris Jordan shone with bat, ball and in the field, to leave many Barbadians in the stands with ambivalent feelings over his sterling performance.
In the end it was a case of a 2-1 victory for the West Indies and pleasure at seeing a hometown lad do well for his adopted country.
