Windward Islands 199 for 3 (Smith 110*, Lesporis 41) beat Guyana 198 for 8 (Griffith 55, Johnson 52) by seven wickets

An unbeaten century from Devon Smith led Windward Islands to a seven-wicket victory over Guyana. Guyana were put in to bat, and after being 18 for 1 came back with a 93-run second-wicket partnership, with opener Trevon Griffith and Leon Johnson scoring fifties. However that was to be the highlight of their innings, as they lost six more wickets for the addition of 87 runs, finishing on 198 for 8.

Windwards' reply started poorly as they lost their first wicket with 11 on the board. Two substantial stands followed though, with the 103-run third-wicket stand between Smith and Keddy Lesporis quashing any chance Guyana had. Smith continued to lead from the front till the end, taking Windwards home in 46.5 overs.

Trinidad & Tobago 239 for 7 (Guillen 72, Simmons 48, Martin 3-24) beat Leeward Islands 238 for 7 (Thomas 69, Willett 51*, Badree 3-23) by three wickets

Trinidad & Tobago chased down Leeward Islands' target of 239 to win by three wickets. Leewards were put in to bat, and were under the cosh when they were 58 for 4 after 22.2 overs. Devon Thomas and Jahmar Hamilton scored 81 runs for the fifth wicket to help stabilise the innings. Tonito Willett scored an unbeaten 51 off 38 balls at the end to push Leewards' score up to 238. Samuel Badree bowled an economical spell of 3 for 23.

T&T were able to string some partnerships early on, with Justin Guillen and Kjorn Ottley combining for 77 runs to help keep them on course for their target. Anthony Martin's 3 for 24 was in vain as Yannick Ottley's 47 off 60 balls took them to victory in 48.3 overs.

Combined Campuses and Colleges 167 (Reifer 33, Jordan 3-27) beat Barbados 94 (Reifer 5-19) by 59 runs

Raymon Reifer starred with bat and ball as Combined Campuses and Colleges beat Barbados by 59 runs in Bridgetown. CCC chose to bat first, but were at the mercy of Chris Jordan as he took three wickets up front to have them reeling at 36 for 3. Cousins Floyd and Raymon Reifer combined to put together a 56-run stand for the fourth wicket, before Floyd was dismissed by offspinner Ashley Nurse. No batsman could really capitalise on their starts, as CCC were dismissed for 167 in 49.2 overs. Jordan and Nurse each picked up three wickets in the innings.

It was even worse for Barbados - they could not string any partnerships together as they lost wickets regularly. Raymon Reifer was the star of the show as he picked up a career-best 5 for 19, ably supported by Derone Davis' 3 for 31. Jordan was the only batsman to pass 20 as the team folded, with eight batsman falling in single digits. Barbados were shot out for 94 in the 26th over.

Whomever is coaching this Barbados team needs to step down, we have seen a totally mediocre performance the last 4 years, and no improvements whatsoever. Get Desmond Haynes, Gordon Grenidge, Seymour Nurse, or any of our former great bats to coach these batsmen, Wayne Daniel, Big Bird, or Ambrose for the bowlers, we have a rich legacy of great cricketers in Barbados, time to put these wannabee's coaches out to pasture with their useless Coaching Certified Level manuals, they seem to be book wise and cricket foolish,Time to quit the stupidity, without coaches Bajan an WI cricket was #1,with coaches the bottom of the pits, time to rethink strategy people, Weeks,Wallcot and Worrell groomed Sobers, lets find real cricketers to groom our young upcoming cricketers not Certified Level Coaches with zero experience in real top class cricket.
