Jamaica jumped from fourth to second place on the Group B table with a 67-run win (Duckworth-Lewis method) in a rain-affected match against ICC Americas on Wednesday. With the game reduced to 46 overs a side, Jamaica recovered from a shaky 53 for 3 to post 251 for 5, after fifties from Andre McCarthy (63 off 87 balls), John Campbell (66 not out off 42 balls) and Rovman Powell (52 not out off 38 balls). Campbell and Powell put together an unbroken 101-run partnership for the sixth wicket, which came at a scoring rate of 9.04. This was Powell's second successive fifty in the tournament.

Set a revised target of 254, ICC Americas were anchored by opener Kamau Leverock, who struck 75 off 83 balls. The rest of the batting, however, failed. ICC Americas lost seven wickets for 57 runs, folding for 187 in the 45th over. Legspinner Damion Jacobs took 5 for 24, his second five-for in List A cricket, to aid his side's bonus-point victory.

Barbados steamrolled Combined Campuses and Colleges by 200 runs for their fourth consecutive win in the tournament. Having compiled 294 after opting to bat, Barbados bowled CCC out for a mere 94 runs in an innings that lasted 36.2 overs. CCC gave up their last seven wickets for 50 runs, with the only notable contributions coming from Vikash Mohan (29) and Amir Jangoo (23). Sulieman Benn was the best bowler for Barbados with 3 for 25, while Jason Holder and Ashley Nurse took two wickets each.

Earlier, strong performances from the batsmen took Barbados to a strong total, despite a late slump that saw them lose six for 36 in three overs. Of the top six batsmen, only one failed to score more than 30, with the top score coming from Roston Chase, who struck a 55-ball 76.

    @MR Cricket.... using your example ...40 runs off 30 balls is 40 runs off 5 overs at a SR of 139 and with Kraigg having scored his 60 off 100 balls (SR 60 ) and overs about 17 ,that would mean a total of 140 runs off 160 balls or 27 overs and that is about 6 an over. If after Kraigg departs the scoring is up a notch to 7 and it is usually higher than just a notch for the last 23 or so overs and with Kraigg having steadied the innings the score would have been in excess of 300 which is the norm these days .....and that is EXACTLY what I have been saying from day one. Kraigg is there to hold and end while the others bat around him. It isn't that Kraigg soaks up a lot of balls,it is just that the others take more chances.

    @mrcricket quite untrue, in the Zimbabwe tri series he bowled first change and in the last 15 every game. as for the lewis/powell/ kraigg debate Powell is the 2nd best technically correct player in the Caribbean right now next to bravo and has always been. his problem was always concentration for long periods which is why he was dropped from the team in the first place.

  • MR Cricket.. on February 2, 2017, 19:07 GMT

    @metman... ok I am trying to state that kraigg has a better technique than Lewis and Powell however he soaks up alot of dot balls. Assuming Where Lewis and Powell would come in and score 40 runs of 30 balls bratwaite would score 60 runs off 100 balls. Although on average he would outscore them, the runs per balls ratio would be very low and then the team would always have to play catch up with the run rate.

    @MR Cricket....the difference between Kraigg and Shiv is that Kraigg is an OPENER and Shiv bats in the middle.If kraigg used to bat in the middle I could agree with you that it would make no sense...but Kraigg is there to hold an end score at a SR of 60+ while those around him score at 75 to 95 + or even higher. Mr.cricket you have me baffled here...you are saying you never said that Powell and Lewis are better batsmen than Kraigg which would therefore imply that Kraigg is the better batsman...yet you go on to say that the English have a good bowling attack and that Powell and Lewis will go after that attack and score freely but not so for the BETTER batsman Kraigg ? Mr.cricket what are you telling me ?????

  • MR Cricket.. on February 2, 2017, 18:42 GMT

    @mekkayel.. don't make me laugh. It seems as if your knowledge of cricket is quite limited. Carlos hardly if ever opens the bowling. It's usually gabriel and holder and in the back end of an innings as a fast bowler u are expected to bowl, and in wi case they usually have 3, so it's normally holder or gabriel and sometimes carlos who bolds them. But Carlos usually bowls when the run rate is low and the skipper is looking to get through some quick overs. so try and learn some facts before commenting.

  • Mekkayel on February 2, 2017, 17:43 GMT

    @mrcricket clearly you don't know much about cricket. obviously bowlers who bowler either very early or very late in an innings will also likely have high economy rates. Andre Russell and Dwyane Bravo also go for more than 5.50 an over yet that doesn't make them any less effective more often than not. and for your information, in 2016, he took 18 wickets in 13 games. Only holder himself took more wickets.

  • Johnny865 on February 2, 2017, 16:51 GMT

    everyone knows that carlos has been riding on those 4 sixes from almost a year ago, and has done nothing noteworthy since. kraigg is a slow scorer but he would still be serving more purpose in the wi 11 than carlos could...

  • MR Cricket.. on February 2, 2017, 16:27 GMT

    @mekkayel... Carlos should make the team based on his death bowling alone??? Seriously ?? His economy rate is over 5 and a half and he has 21 wickets in 20 games that's basically 1 wicket for every game that he plays. Is that internationally worthy ??? Holder has much better bowling records in odi than him and well batting wise. Nothing needs to be said.

  • Mekkayel on February 2, 2017, 16:13 GMT

    and no, a player can "hold and anchor" an innings together without having a strike rate <60 in ODIs. using Joe Root, Kane Williamson, kohli, Amla, Faf du plessis, even Marlon Samuels and Steven Smith as examples, they all play the very same similar role outlined for their teams and their respective strike rates are >75 and hover around the 90 mark. the only one with a 75 strike rate is Samuels. kraigg can block and anchor for sure but he's not the answer in his current state.

    @metman. Narine can still be selected, look both him and pollard did not represent trinidad and tobago in last years domestic season yet they both played in the series against aus, and SA
