West Indies Academy And Barbados Pride Earn Round 1 Wins While No Results For Defending Champions

The West Indies Academy handed the Leeward Islands Hurricanes a shocking 5 wicket defeat at Warner Park in St. Kitts.

The Hurricanes posted 232 all out in their second innings, giving them a 192-run lead on the final day of Round 1 matches. Wicketkeeper batsman Jahmar Hamilton played a patient 70-run innings to add to the 55 scored overnight by Mikyle Louis, as the Hurricanes pushed for a victory over the young Academy team. Joshua Bishop’s 3/33 and Johann Layne 3/45 were the best bowling figures from the Academy attack.

The Academy’s opening batsmen Rashawn Worrell and Kadeem Alleyne got their team off to a flyer, belting the Hurricanes bowlrs around Warner Park. The pair reached 80 before Alleyne was caught for 57 and Worrell fell in the next over for 21. Mbeki Joseph and Akeem August added 39 before Auguste was bowled by Jeremiah Louis for 22. The Academy then lost Rivaldo Clarke 8 and Nyeem Young 0 in quick succession, with 65 runs still needed for victory. Joshua James joined Joseph in the middle, and he looked like a man on a mission to end the match as quickly as possible. James smashed five sixes and two fours, bringing up the winnings runs with one of those sixes, to finish on 41 not out from 21 deliveries, Joseph was not out at the non-striker’s end on 43 off 64 deliveries, which included four sixes of his own. Jeremiah Louis was the best Hurricanes bowler with figures of 9-1-41-3.


Barbados Pride completed a 9-wicket victory over the Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) at Chedwin Park in Jamaica. Resuming their follow-on, CCC were bowled out for 193 a lead of 34 runs. Sharmarh Brooks led the batting for CCC with a top-score of 72 and 47 from wicketkeeper Demario Richards. Chaim-Alexis Holder bagged a fifer bowling for the Pride for figures of 24.5-3-69-5 while Jomel Warrican had 10-4-16-3.

In their second innings, Pride knocked off the 32 runs required for victory with ease, despite losing the wicket of skipper Kraigg Brathwaite for 0. Zachary McCaskie 28 not out and Shayne Moseley 7 not out, took Barbados to victory in less than 5 overs.

The Trinidad and Tobago Red Force match against defending champions Guyana Harpy Eagles was abandoned with no result. The Windward Islands Volcanoes defeated Jamaica Scorpions by 9 wickets on Day 3 at Sabina Park in Jamaica.

Teams will start Round 2 on February 14-17 in Jamaica and St. Kitts.
