Guyana Claim Fifth Straight Title

Jamaica prevail over T&T, rain washes out Barbados-Leewards in the WINDIES Under-19 One-day Championship

 

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – Guyana followed up tidy bowling, led by Kevelon Anderson, with solid batting to earn a seven-wicket victory over hosts Windward Islands today and capture the WINDIES Under-19 One-day title for the fifth straight year.

The Guyanese finished with 27.8 points, finishing 5.5 points ahead of Trinidad & Tobago, whose chances hit a snag when Sanjay Brown and Kirk McKenzie shared seven wickets to bowl Jamaica to a four-run victory in the final round of matches.

The Jamaicans ended with 20 points, 1.2 more than Barbados, whose final matches against Leewards ended in a no-decision following a series of rain days.

Hosts Windwards were fifth with 17.2 points, Leewards were sixth on 8.8 points and Canada finished at the bottom of the seven-team table with 0.6 points.

 

At the Arnos Vale Sports Complex: Anderson grabbed 4-26 from 7.5 overs, as the Windwards were bowled out for 105 in 33.5 overs.

Qumar Torrington helped complete the demolition job with 3-26 from nine overs and Joshua Jones snapped up 2-23 from seven overs, as no Windwards batsman distinguished himself.

Guyana stumbled to 14 for two in the fifth over before Kevin Sinclair came to the wicket, hit 39 and shared a third-wicket stand of 63 for the third wicket with Sachin Singh.

Sinclair made 32 and Singh, not out on 27, guided the Guyanese safely to their target.

Jayden Seales, batting at 11, hit the top score of 24 and ensured T&T past 100.

Earlier, Justyn Gangoo bagged 3-4 from four overs and Crystian Thurton collected 3-17 from nine overs, as Jamaica were bowled out for 107 in 42 overs.
