Barbados 197 for 3 (Carter 96*, Boucher 52) trail Jamaica 273 (Pagon 71, Benn 5-90) by 76 runs
A solid, unbeaten 96 from Jonathan Carter helped carry Barbados into a position of strength against Jamaica on day two of the Regional Four-Day Tournament final.
Jamaica began the day on 266 for 8, and went on to add only seven more runs to their total. In reply, Barbados lost opener Omar Phillips for a first-ball duck and Kyle hope cheaply. However, a 144-run third-wicket stand between Rashidi Boucher and Carter put them back on course.
Boucher fell soon after passing a half-century, but Carter saw things through till stumps, finishing unbeaten on 96. Dwayne Smith was with him at the crease at the end of play, with Barbados 76 behind with seven wickets in hand.
