Holder continues to impress

West Indies Under-19 team fast bowler Chemar Holder grabbed four wickets cheaply to help set up a win by seven wickets for Barbados Select over Northamptonshire in a limited overs match at Kensington Oval yesterday as part of the English Counties pre-season tour of Barbados.

Holder, who turned 18 on March 3, and who was one of the heroes of the champion West Indies Youth side at the ICC Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh last month after he was belatedly called up, took four for 16 off seven overs in a Northamptonshire total of 155 all out in 41 overs after they won the toss.

Off-spinner Raymond Bynoe, the ESA Field Pickwick off-spinner, who is arguably one of the most economical and successful bowlers in the local Sagicor General Super Cup and Twenty20 Championships, took three for 37 off seven overs.

Wicket-keeper David Murphy top-scored with 43 off 72 balls including two fours.

Barbados Select responded with 158 for three in 27.2 overs.

Left-hander Jameel Stuart, a former Barbados Under-19 team captain and the current BDFSP skipper, top-scored with an unbeaten 49 off 56 balls including six fours and one six.

Captain and opener Kyle Corbin, who was dropped by Barbados Pride after Round 8 of the current WICB PCL first-class Championship, made 39 off 54 balls with four fours and one six.

Stuart’s club mate, left-hander Marlon Welcome-Goodman, contributed 29 not out off 26 balls in his usual attacking style, counting two sixes and one four and Kemar Smith (25).

The tournament climaxes with two-day matches tomorrow and Saturday. Barbados Select oppose Hampshire at Kensington Oval and Nottinghamshire meet Northamptonshire at Lucas Street.
