Barbados thrashed Jamaica by 62 runs at North Sound to inflict a first defeat on their opponents. In what has been a low-scoring tournament by Twenty20 standards, Barbados managed a match-winning 157 for 7 after choosing to bat.
Dwayne Smith guided the innings, blasting seven fours and six sixes in his 86 off 57 balls. He dominated an 85-run stand with wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich for the third wicket which lay the foundation for a big score. A surge at the death from Ryan Hinds took Barbados past 150.
Jamaica were abject in their chase, being skittled out for 95. Nkruma Bonner top-scored with 27 but only two others managed to reach double-figures. Wickets fell at regular intervals and the five Barbados bowlers helped themselves to at least a wicket each. Tino Best, Sulieman Benn and Ashley Nurse grabbed two each and Jamaica were all out in 16.5 overs.
The action continues with Group A play tomorrow in Barbados. Canada come against Guyana in the opening encounter at 4:00pm, while at 8:00pm, Leeward Is oppose the Windward Is.
