Jamaica suffered a blow to their title ambitions as Barbados completed a 17-run win at Kensington Oval shortly before lunch on the fourth day. Jamaica, who led by 90 on the first innings, needed 201 but were bowled out for 183 after resuming on 133 for 4.

Tamar Lambert (46) and Brendan Nash's (37) fifth-wicket stand of 72 was ended in the third over when Nash was caught behind off a loose drive, the fourth of Pedro Collins' five wickets, and he completed his five-for three overs later when Carlton Baugh Jr was given leg-before swinging across the line. In the next over, Dave Bernard Jr was also lbw playing back to left-arm slow bowler Sulieman Benn to leave Jamaica 147 for 7.

While Lambert remained there was hope, but he was removed by Fidel Edwards, caught at slip chasing a wide one, and although Jerome Taylor helped inch towards the target, he too perished to Edwards. Man-of-the-Match Collins finished with match figures of 9 for 108.

Chris Gayle, Jamaica's captain, was deeply critical of the umpiring. "If you look at some of the decisions that went against us, it was really terrible for sports and the game, and it was just blatant," he said. "It is not good for the game. It is also not good for people leaving this level and going to international cricket, and then it is something totally different, so we are not really happy about the outcome.

"It cannot continue happening like this year in, year out. Jamaica always seem to have it tough, and decisions always seem to go against us. Basically, once we are playing away from home, it always seems to be tough for us, and it was the same thing last week when we played Trinidad & Tobago. We came out on top then, but this time, it was not in our favour."

Trinidad & Tobago 268 and 188 for 7 beat Windward Islands 294 and 158 by three wickets
Scorecard

A sixth-wicket stand of 60 between Dwayne Bravo and Denesh Ramdin helped steer Trinidad & Tobago to a three-wicket victory over the Windward Islands. Chasing 185, T&T slid to 118 for 5 before the pair came together. Bravo hit three fours and a six, while Ramdin, who was out with seven needed, chipped in with four fours. With one run required, Reyad Emrit was caught behind but T&T crept across the finishing line. Shane Shillingford (2 for 58), Nelon Pascal (2 for 35) and Deighton Butler (2 for 35) did the early damage, while Amit Jaggernauth with his 12 for 133 in the game, was named Man of the Match.

Combined Campuses and Colleges 151 and 96 for 2 drew with Guyana 421
Scorecard

Guyana had to settle for a draw after the last day of their game against Combined Campuses & Colleges was abandoned because of persistent rain. Not even the excellent drainage system at the National Stadium at Providence could help, and umpires and the two teams agreed to call off the game just after tea although the outfield showed few effects from the constant downpour.
