Jamaica seeking 2nd straight win at WICB u17 tournament
Jamaica’s youth cricketers will be seeking their second win on the trot when they take on host Trinidad and Tobago in round3 of the WICB under 17 Championships which is held in Tobago.
The Jamaicans occupy second spot in the 6-team table after 2 rounds with 6.5 points after registering an 8-wickets win in Tuesday’s rain affected match against the Leeward Islands.
In a match that was reduced to 20 overs, the Leewards after losing the toss and being asked to bat made 124 for 5 with Saeed Williams top-scoring with 54.
Three Jamaican bowlers, Michael Hurst, Rushane Manning and Fabien Allen took one wicket each.
Jamaica in reply eased to victory at 125 for 2 in 14.2 overs thanks to an unbeaten 77 by Tristan Coleman.
In the other games, Trinidad -169 for 7 - were 63 runs winners over the Windward Islands who were dismissed for 106, while in the rain delayed match between Guyana and Barbados, the Guyanese - 93 for 8 - notched an 8-run win over the Bajans who had earlier made 85 for 8.
That game was reduced to 30 overs due to a late start.
The competition continues on Wednesday with the Jamaicans facing Trinidad who lead the table with 7 points at Shaw Park, the Windwards versus Barbados at Plymouth and the Leewards against third place Guyana at Bon Accord.
