Barbados trailing Jamaica

by Wade Gibbons


Barbados were playing “catch-up” at the close of play on the second day of their WICB first-class Headley/Weekes Trophy semi-final match at Kensington Oval today.

With a first innings deficit of 57, the Bajans were 18 for one off seven overs in their second innings – still trailing Jamaica by 39 runs.

The not out batsmen were Kraigg Brathwaite on seven and Shai Hope, five.

 Left-hander Omar Phillips was caught at the wicket by Carlton Baugh off left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell for two when the score was 10.

Jamaica, starting the day on 52 for one, were bowled out 302 off 93 overs in reply to Barbados’ first innings total of 245 all out off 77.3 overs.

Captain Tamar Lambert topscored with 121. He batted for 220 minutes, faced 173 balls and struck 12 fours and four sixes.

Lambert reached his century in 211 minutes off 164 balls with nine fours and three sixes. His half-century came in 90 minutes off 78 deliveries with seven fours and one six.

Left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn was the leading wicket-taker for the home side with five wickets for 102 off 35 overs.

The action resumes tomorrow at 10 a.m.
