Barbados pulled off a two-wicket win over Guyana in a low-scoring match at Bridgetown's Three Ws Oval to seal a semi-final spot in the Regional Super50. Chasing 187, Barbados' Kevin Stoute (51) and Shai Hope (63) consolidated their chase in a 70-run second-wicket stand but Raymon Reifer's four wickets kept Guyana in the hunt.

Barbados collapsed from 119 for 2 to 180 for 8 and went into the last over needing six runs, before Carlos Brathwaite (11*) and Jomel Warrican (2*) helped them cross the target with three balls to spare. Earlier, Guyana were all out for 186 off the last ball of their innings, failing to recover from a position of 100 for 5 after Ashley Nurse's three wickets at the top. Six Guyana batsmen scored 18 runs or more but their top score came from Veerasammy Permaul , who scored 32 at no. 9.

Jamaica defended 204 against Combined Campuses & Colleges in Bridgetown courtesy a spirited bowling effort led by Nikita Miller, who took 3 for 12 from nine overs. Miller's haul saw CCC slip from 124 for 5 to 130 for 8, before they folded on 160 to give Jamaica a 44-run win that took them to second place in Group B.

Jamaica reached 204 after fifties from Jermaine Blackwood (51) and Andre McCarthy (51), and a late surge from Jerome Taylor (41). Between these knocks, CCC took regular wickets to keep Jamaica in check. They lost their first two wickets for 26 and then slipped from 109 for 2 to be bowled out in the 46th over. Offspinners Mark Deyal and Vikash Mohan took three wickets each.

For CCC, their top score came from the extras conceded by Jamaica (30, of which 24 were wides). Cassius Burton (28), Amir Jangoo (24) and Mark Deyal (21) got starts but, with regular wickets falling, Jamaica completed a win in the 42nd over.

    @Metman: You're talking about the final of the first Nagico Super50, what, 3-4 years ago? I'm talking about cricket in 2017. I'm talking about the teams currently playing and the players currently playing. That is what is relevant. Idk if you want a congratulations for that win, but in case you do, you got it from me. You seem to like to bring up the past a lot, but that was then. I'm talking about cricket now. Your arguments are irrelevant and pointless. And you're saying that Carlos is performing along the same lines as when Pollard first started out? Please. Run back to the past and double check Pollard's stats after his first few seasons.

    @Johnny865....Emrit has played much more cricket than Braff ...BUT....the only difference is that one with a bowling av.GREATER than his batting av. has gone PUBLIC questioning why he is not selected for the WI and that he is PERFORMING in ALL formats for a number of years....a man with a batting av. of LESS THAN 20 IN ALL FORMATS..and the other who was SELECTED BECAUSE of his stats and is performing along the same lines as when your STAR SLOGGER Pollard started out. @Trinimon....and Bdos beat a TnT team with ALL those stars playing with the exception of Pollard at QPO in a one day final during the first Nagico Super 50. I expect you to come and say now that without Pollard that team cannot be considered as an A team and what potential of Pooran what !! you basing the performance of a team on POTENTIAL man ? if that is the case ,I can also base the performance of the Bdos team on the potential on Kraigg and Carlos Braff,Hope,Chase,Dowrich,Holder and Cummins to name a few.

    You also cannot forget Simmons and badree who in 50 overs cricket is very good and economical.

  • M on February 8, 2017, 4:35 GMT

    @Metman: eh, maybe not a C team, but definitely a B team. A team without Pollard, both Bravos, Narine, and the potential of Pooran cannot be called an A team.

    @metman... how funny, you are so critical of emrit stats when your star player carlos has very much similar stats. but as you say funny how these bajans can't admit this as well. but the only difference is one was never recalled because of his medioricuty and one was made captain...

  • Michael on February 7, 2017, 15:32 GMT

    @trinikanyewest ....You are telling yourself that a team that has Lewis,Mohammed,Ramdin,Emrit,Gabriel and Rampaul as regulars and THREE EXPATRIATES is a C team ? you ARE right cause their averages are those are of C players.Its' a pity other Trinis on this blog cannot admit that. Look at Emrits stats...lord have mercy...and he says he continues to perform in all formats and questions why the WI don't pick him.

    Out of all the established teams guyana arguably has the weakest batting lineup, barring windwards. Tnt has a c team and batting r better, they seriously need to improve or draft ne players/cant believe foo cant get a game in this team.

  • megama3812918 on February 6, 2017, 21:13 GMT

    When chanderpaul fails guyana dont bat well.. How good is nurse and harding, thats what i like about vp he can bat, is it jus me or is Taylor in red hot form. What is ryan hinds doin in this team if he wants to contribute he should jus coach or something.

  • tlcgou1924081 on February 6, 2017, 15:35 GMT

    Disappointed with the Guyanese opening batsmen. Guyana never got a good start from these men. They are depending on Johnson and a 42 year old retired test cricketer who can still make any test team around the world. We need openers that can start and keep going.

    Why Wicket in the Caribbean is still playing poorly ? No wonder West Indies Cricket Team couldn't qualify for the Champion Trophy in England,come this summer,so far most of the Team's in the super 50 tournament is struggling to score 200 .
