Barbados Pride are Regional Super50 champions

Barbados Pride defeated Jamaica Scorpions by 59 runs in the final of the Regional Super50 at Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua tonight.

Pride scored 271 for nine off 50 overs, with Shai Hope hitting 101, his second successive hundred of the tournament. Captain Jason Holder made 69, Kevin Stoute 41.

The Scorpions ended on 212 all out off 44.3 overs.  Rovman Powell top scored with 65, followed by Andre McCarthy on 30, and Damion Jacobs with 28.

Opting to bat first, Pride wasted a solid start after Stoute and Brathwaite added 59 for the first wicket, losing their way to collapse to 138 for five.

But Hope and Holder came to their side’s rescue in an entertaining 127-run sixth wicket stand which stunned the Scorpions.

Hope, who hit 125 in Thursday’s semi-final against Leeward Islands Hurricanes, struck five fours and five sixes while Holder belted five fours and four sixes, as Pride gathered 110 runs off the last 10 overs of the innings.

Medium pacer Rovman Powell, strangely handed just three overs, picked up three for 27 while part-time off-spinner John Campbell claimed two for 35.

    I was saying that BDS were 25 runs short. Again we see that Jason Holder is a BATSMAN who can BOWL.

    Jonathan Carter was a selector’s mistake I watched all his batting innings, especially his last two. Both dismissals were soft and easy. We needed another strike bowler and Miguel Cummins would have sufficed. Another carefully constructed innings from Mr. Shai Hope. I am anxious to see the team for the upcoming matches against England. BT, Request comments along this line. Let’s see those responses. Thanks.

    The selectors should see who make runs. For years KEVIN STOUTE were being victimized by these selectors for what reason I don’t know. He is one of the best all rounder in the Caribbean . Now he should be playing as a senior player at all times. Give the young man a chance and stop putting pressure on the young man. CARLOS BRAITHWAITE should be dropped.

    Orlando, your comments are good. However, BT have no good nor genuine cricket reporter. I should not have to log in on a web page that is loaded with advertisements from Carters and FLOW. I should be able to see a full detailed score sheet so I can make my own analysis.

    @Peter, Before the last 2 games I posted that J.CARTER is not a big-day man, so he will not put runs on the board . I had given him 15 to 20 tops, he did not even got that much. Maybe Holder should use Carter as a Bowler to throw off the batsmen from the usual suspects in BDS bowling line up.
    K.STOUTE is one of the most unliked players in the Barbados squad by the selectors.

    I have known many of the players on this team from the time they were in Primary School. I wish to congratulate all of them, including those who did not make the final eleven for the match that won us the tournament. While there is nothing wrong with having an opinion on team selection, and I have been close to Kevin Stoute, Carlos Brathwaite and most of the team from their early teens, I respectfully suggest that now is not the time for dissecting and dismantling what has proven to be winning combinations. Savour this victory, congratulate ALL members of the squad including coaches and management and celebrate. Finally, we should have a special word of congratulations for Jason Holder, a gentleman and highly underrated player and Captain. We never miss what we have until we get rid of it. Jason, Kevin, Carlos, Jonathan, Shai, all of you, believe in yourselves, be confident, support each other and play on!
