Benn's five-for restricts Jamaica

Jamaica 266 for 8 (Parchment 58, Pagon 71, Benn 5-90) v Barbados

A five-wicket haul by Sulieman Benn restricted Jamaica to 266 for 8 after a strong start by the hosts on the opening day of the Regional Four-Day final at Sabina Park.

Jamaica got off to a sound start after opting to bat, with their openers adding 46. The second-wicket pair of Brenton Parchment and Donovan Pagon strengthened that position by adding 108. Benn broke the stand when he had Parchment caught for 58. The second session witnessed a collapse of five wickets for 41 runs. Pagon fell to Benn for 71, and the left-arm spinner found support from the seamer Carlos Brathwaite, who chipped in with three wickets.

The captain Tamar Lambert and Danza Hyatt too fell cheaply to the pair. Nikita Miller and Sheldon Cotterrell were at the crease with an unbeaten stand of 27 at stumps.
