Windward Islands and Jamaica played to a draw when their third and final round game of the
Regional U-19 3-Day tournament ended yesterday at the Guyana National Stadium. Leading by 20, Jamaica were bowled out for 289 in 103.4 overs after resuming on 272-6 overnight. Batting a second time Windwards were sent packing for 147 in 67.3 overs. Needing 111 for victory, the Jamaicans progressed to 95-5 off 19 overs when time was called.
Ramaal Lewis and Ryon Burnette (12*) only managed to add five to Jamaica overnight total before Lewis went for 19. The lower order found the going tough as Gidron Pope captured 4-70 and Deron Hypolite 3-66.
Trailing by 37, Odean Smith put Windwards on the back foot early on when he had Melvin Gordon taken by Leroy Lugg without scoring. Off spinner Ramaal Lewis maintained the pressure with the wicket of Tonis Simon (11) before Ryon Burnette induced Sherman Hooper to nick one behind at 28-3. Pope played the lone hand with a top score of 44 before he was sent back by Lewis. Ryan John (19), Hypolite (17), Doran Edward (16) and Roland Cato (15) were the other batsmen that got into double figures. Lewis grabbed 4-41, Burnette 2-23 and Nicholas Walters 2-24.
Lugg and Odaine Mc Catty got Jamaica off to a bright start with a stand of 78, but when Lugg was run out for 31 the chase did not materialized as they lost a number of quick wickets. Mc Catty was left not out on 46; Pope snared 3-25 and Hypolite 1-4. Jamaica gained 8.3 and Windwards 5.1 points from the game.
Scores: (Windwards 252 and 147, Jamaica 289 and 95-5).
