Barbados 114 for 5 (Carter 38*, Wintz 3-40) beat Guyana 111 (Johnson 28, Nurse 4-22, Jordan 3-24) by five wickets
Barbados got their first win of the tournament when they beat Guyana in a low-scoring match in Bridgetown. After dismissing Guyana for a paltry 111, Barbados reached the target in the 27th over, but after losing five wickets.
Guyana were off to a slow start after being put in to bat. Their openers were dismissed within the span of three runs, by Jason Holder, and were 37 for 2. Leon Johnson and Assad Fudadin put on 44 for the third wicket and once their stand was broken, the Barbados bowlers ran through their line-up, taking their last seven wickets for 30 runs. Offspinner Ashley Nurse finished with career-best figures of 4 for 22 and pacers Holder and Chris Jordan shared five wickets.
Chasing 112, Barbados lost their opener Kraigg Brathwaite in the fourth over and the next two batsmen within five balls, leaving them 30 for 3. Rashidi Boucher made 21 but was dismissed in the 10th over and became Paul Wintz's third wicket. Jonathan Carter steered the innings from there, and even though they lost their fifth wicket in the 15th over, Carter and Shane Dowrich saw them home with a 50-run stand.
