Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Another all-round performance from Darren Sammy sealed a victory for Windward Islands in St Lucia and took them to third position in the points table. Sammy took two wickets and followed it up with a 28-ball 41 which included four sixes.

Chasing 141, Windwards were reduced to 57 for 5 after nine overs by Dwayne Smith who took three wickets in three overs. Sammy walked out and stitched a 70-run partnership with Liam Sebastien who remained unbeaten with a run-a-ball 33. When Windwards needed 40 from four overs, Sammy smashed 24 off his next six balls before he was bowled by Javon Searles. Windwards finished the chase with an over to spare.

Earlier, Barbados got off to a slow start after winning the toss as they were reduced to 19 for 2 by Sammy in the fifth over. Roston Chase and Shane Dowrich took the score to 50 but both were dismissed soon. Kyle Mayers' knock of 37 from 21 pushed the run-rate up after he clobbered four sixes. Ashley Nurse's cameo helped Barbados to 140.

Guyana 156 for 3 (Barnwell 61*) beat Leeward Islands 142 for 5 (Thomas 46*) by 14 runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

An all-round performance by Guyana got them four points against Leeward Islands and kept them in the hunt for a place in the play-off. They are now at fourth position in the points table and have a match left.

After Guyana chose to bat, their openers, Derwin Christian and Shivnarine Chanderpaul, gave the team a stable start but their run-rate was under six even after ten overs. Once they departed, Christopher Barnwell steered the innings till the end with a 36-ball 61 that included nine boundaries. He and Royston Crandon (16* off 6) hit 53 off the last three overs to take the total to 156.

Leewards were 62 for 1 in the 12th over but the regular fall of wickets after that made the chase tougher for them. Guyana's Steven Jacobs bowled a parsimonious spell, giving only 15 runs in his four overs. He was supported by Crandon, who claimed 1 for 12 in three. Devon Thomas scored 46 off 27 but his knock was in vain as Leewards fell short.

I must add that carlos Brathwaite needs to use his brains more in cricketing terms. It should have been a simple approach against the Windward Islands. The fast bowler Delom Johnson was bowling around the wicket. He is a left hander which means the ball will slant across the batsman. Repeatedly, Carlos Brathwaite was hitting across the line. All he had to do was play straight and hit the ball between cover and cover point.
