Highlights: Trinidad & Tobago triumph over Jamaica

Rahkeem Cornwall cracked an unbeaten 113 off 70 deliveries, his maiden List-A hundred, to lift Leeward Islands to a 48-run win over West Indies Under-19s in Couva, Trinidad. Austin Richards (36) and Devon Thomas (30) had revived Leeward Islands from a disastrous start but both departed in successive overs and the score was soon 115 for 6. The 21-year old Cornwall, playing his sixth one-dayer, took over, smashing 12 fours and seven sixes. He added 82 for the eighth wicket with Hayden Walsh, whose contribution was 6. Cornwall made sure his side batted 50 overs as they ended on 231 for 8. Odean Smith was the most successful bowler with 3 for 37.

Shimron Hetmyer and Tagenarine Chanderpaul added a steady 63 upfront but West Indies Under-19 subsided after Walsh took two wickets in two balls in the 18th over. Roland Cato made 46 but the side fell behind the asking-rate. Gavin Tonge and Jeremiah Louis picked up two wickets each and also caused a run-out each as West Indies Under-19 plodded to 183 for 9 in 50 overs.

Trinidad & Tobago 232 (Darren Bravo 55) beat Jamaica 215 (Bonner 51, Emrit 5-56) by 17 runs
Scorecard

Darren Bravo's half-century and captain Rayad Emrit's maiden List-A five-for carried Trinidad & Tobago to a 17-run win over Jamaica in Port-of-Spain. Darren Bravo faced 82 deliveries for his 55 with eight fours and a six, and his innings took T&T past 100 after an underwhelming start. Handy contributions later from Dwayne Bravo (34), Kieron Pollard (41) and Stephen Katwaroo (31) enabled T&T to post 232 before they were dismissed in the 50th over. Derval Green took 3 for 65 while Marquino Mindley, Nikita Miller and David Bernard picked up two wickets each.

Nkrumah Bonner and John Campbell put on 45 for the opening partnership but Emrit sent back the latter and Tamar Lambert in the 11th over. Bonner and Jermaine Blackwood steadied the chase with a 43-run stand but Emrit was the partnership-breaker again, bowling Blackwood in the 21st over. Jason Mohammed took out Bonner for 51 and Kevon Cooper snapped up the next three wickets before Emrit returned to complete his five-for. Bernard fought for his 40 but was last man out to Dwayne Bravo off the first ball of the final over as Jamaica were bowled out for 215.
