Rain plays spoiler in third round, more bad weather forecast for fourth round


Bridgetown, Barbados - Heavy rain associated with Tropical Storm Isaac put a damper on the third round of matches in the West Indies Cricket Board's Under-19 50-over Tournament on Wednesday.


The bad weather started on Tuesday night and continued throughout the day as all three matches ended in No Result. There was no play between Jamaica and Windward Islands at the Police Sports Complex. The groundstaff worked all morning to get the field ready but a heavy shower at 1:20 pm forced the abandonment.


At Pine Basin, the ICC Americas had the upperhand over Leewards Islands, who struggled to 73-6 off 24 overs, in a match reduced to 31 overs per side. Captain Akeem Saunders again propped up his team's batting with 32 not out off 50 balls before the rain swept across the ground at 3 p.m.


At the Desmond Haynes Oval, Shimron Hetmeyer continued his good form as he blasted three sixes into the pavilion in a hurricane 43 off 26 balls. This knocked followed up the run-a-ball 116 he scored in his side's win over Windward Islands on Monday.


Guyana dominated the Trinidad & Tobago attack and were scoring at a rapid rate of over seven runs per over before a heavy shower around 3 p.m. drove the players off the field and left the outfield waterlogged.

WICB First Round Results

ICC Americas Team v Barbados


Sunday, August 19, 2012


Bridgetown, Barbados - Trinidad and Tobago made an impressive start to the West Indies Cricket Board's Under-19 50-over Tournament, while Barbados and Guyana also recorded comfortable victories on the opening day on Sunday.


The Trinis made a huge statement as they hammered the Leeward Islands by a whopping 161 runs at Friendship. Nicholas Pooran made whirlwind century, while Stephan Wharwood and Anthony Simmons topped up with blazing half-centuries as T&T made 332-6 off their 50 overs. They went on an all-out attack as 140 runs came in the final 10 overs.


Pooran hit 102 off 71 balls with eight fours and seven sixes. Simmons was equally brutal with 58 not out off 31 balls with three fours and six sixes. Together they added a record 143 runs off 70 balls for the fifth wicket. Earlier Wharwood made 84 off 109 balls with four fours and three sixes in the first half of the innings.


Asked to score at over 6.5 runs per over for victory, the Leewards were bowled out for 161 in the 44th over. Simmons was back in the action with his off-spin which brought three wickets for 15 runs off six overs.


At Queen's Park, defending champions Barbados also made a good start with an easy 74-run win over the International Cricket Council's Americas team. Skipper Shai Hope continued his great form with a mature century as the Bajans batted first and made 262-7 off 50 overs.

Hope came to the crease in the second over with the score at 2-1 and batted to the end. He joined Shayne Moseley, who made 55, in a second-wicket stand of 113 in 27 overs. Hope faced 144 balls and hit 11 fours and three sixes as the last 10 overs yielded 82 runs. The knock was Hope's fourth century of the tournament, following 101, 140 not out and 104 not out in the Three-Day tournament.


The Americas were in with a shout up to the halfway stage, thanks to opener Steven Taylor who played a number of powerful shots in a run-a-ball 75. After he fell the tourists lost four wickets for seven runs in seven overs and they never recovered.


At Bayfield, Guyana held their nerve to see off Jamaica by five wickets. Guyanese left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie took three wickets to restrict the Jamaicans to 198-7 off 50 overs. The score was built around an eighth-wicket stand of 96 between Delbert Gayle (73) and Raghni Francis (18 not out). Gayle's knock came from 64 balls with five fours and two sixes, after Oshane Walters scored 66 with a six and four fours off 96 balls.


It was then left to Tagenarine Chanderpaul, with a patient 58 off 95 balls, and Ricardo Adams, with a robust 42, see Guyana to victory.

The tournament continues on Monday. Barbados face T&T at Bayfield, Guyana take on Windward Islands at Friendship and Leewards Islands meet Jamaica at Queen's Park. First ball is 9 am (8 am Jamaica Time).

Warm-up Game - Ramsammy and Leverock see ICC Americas Home


Thursday 16 August, 2012


ICC Americas played a warm up match against a Barbados Development XI, coached by former West Indies test player Pedro Collins, at their adopted home of Windward Cricket Club. This was their only game during the preparation camp for the WICB U19 Tournament.


The hosts won the toss and elected to bat first but were soon pegged back by two wickets from Manny Aulakh who used the new ball to good effect. After that captain Steven Taylor used 10 bowlers as he looked to give all the bowlers a go with a view towards sundays first tournament match. Wickets fell at regular intervals with Josh Gilbert bowling nicely for 3-20 and Hamid Shahid bowling well at the end of the innings and finishing with 3-14.


In reply Steven Taylor fell early swishing at a wide one and Cameron Mirza was just looking settled when he was out for 16. Akash Shah played a patient innings of 29 to steady the innings but at 100-5 it was in the balance. However Ramsammy 39no and Leverock 27no played very well and never gave the home side a chance to get back into the game and saw the innings through for a deserved 5 wicket victory.


Coach Andy Pick said, "We played well in large parts of the game but there are areas needing attention if we are to challenge the teams in the tournament. Leverock and Ramsammy were excellent in the way they batted through and saw us home"
