Barbados shocked by Combined Colleges and Campuses
Combined Colleges and Campuses 202 (Reifer 70, Parris 52, Collins 4-30, Best 4-37) and 159 (Currency 35, Best 6-47, Benn 4-50) beat Barbados 139 (Hinds 35, Smith 35, Bennett 6-59) and 198 (Smith 85, Bennett 5-46) by 24 runs
Combined Colleges and Campuses (CCC) caused the upset of the tournament by defeating Barbados by 24 runs at the Three Ws Oval in Bridgetown. Barbados, who looked well in sight of victory chasing 223, collapsed from 162 for 3 to 198 all out, losing their last seven wickets for 36 runs to hand CCC their maiden win in only their second match of the Carib Beer Series. Barbados vice-captain Dwayne Smith's 78-ball 85, which featured nine fours and two sixes, went in vain as fast bower Jason Bennett took 5 for 46 to change the course of the match. Smith was involved in a 53-run stand for the second wicket with Jason Haynes (25 off 66 balls) and added 68 runs for the fourth wicket with Alcino Holder (28), but the slide started when he was trapped after playing across seamer Kurt Wilkinson. Bennett went on to receive the Man-of-the-Match award for match figures of 11 for 105. Earlier, CCC, resuming on their overnight score of 138 for 7, were bowled out for 159, with Tino Best adding two wickets to finish with 6 for 47 and a match haul of 10 for 84, while left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn claimed four wickets.
Jamaica 109 for 2 (Hinds 50*, Marshall 48*) and 240 (Nash 91*, Hinds 53, Garraway 4-45, Permaul 4-75) beat Guyana 171 (Deonarine 39, Christian 34, Lawson 5-41) and 177 (Johnson 73, Fudadin 31, Brown 3-35, Lawson 3-61) by eight wickets
Jamaica moved to the top of the table after a convincing eight-wicket win over Guyana in Kingston. Wavell Hinds and Xavier Marshall, with unbeaten knocks of 50 and 48 respectively, helped Jamaica reach their target half-an-hour before the close of play. Jamaica's chase got off to a poor start after they lost their openers for the addition of 11 runs, but Hinds and Marshall stabilised the innings. Hinds swept offspinner Zaheer Mohammad over long-leg to bring up his half-century, while Marshall struck Narsingh Deonarine for six to finish the match. Earlier, Guyana looked to extend their overnight score of 59 for 1, but once Assad Fudadin was run out for 31, they lost three more wickets in quick time - Deonarine caught in the deep off Nikita Miller, captain Ramnaresh Sarwan failing to open his account after being trapped by David Bernard Jr, and Travis Dowlin run out for 10 - as they went into lunch at 116 for 5. Leon Johnson, who had added 70 runs for the second wicket with Fudadin, tried to keep Guyana afloat, bringing up his half-century in the process. Guyana's innings folded up in quick time once Johnson was dismissed by Germain Lawson. Offspinner Odeon Brown claimed three lower order wickets to finish with 3 for 35, while Lawson took 3 for 61. Brendan Nash, the left-hand batsman, was named Man of the Match for his unbeaten 91 in Jamaica's first innings.
