PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — Barbados, behind a stroke filed 61 from man of the match Dwayne Smith and a four-wicket haul by Fidel Edwards, forced their way into the final of the NAGICO Super50 regional cricket competition when they humbled Guyana by seven wickets in the second semi-final at the Queen's Park Oval here Thursday.

Guyana won the toss and batted scoring 181 all out off 48.4 overs to which Barbados replied with 182 for three in 46 overs.

Barbados' chase was set up by Smith who rushed to 61 off 37 balls, a stint marked by nine fours and three sixes. He formed an opening partnership of 81 with a patient Kraigg Brathwaite.

Brathwaite occupied the crease until Barbados reached their target to remain undefeated on 55 in 122 minutes with five fours. His mature performance was the ideal approach for his team. In the process he posted his highest score in this format of the game at this level.

He found another useful partner in Kenroy Williams, who was 40 not out off 78 balls with two boundaries. The pair put on 72 unseparated for the fourth wicket, Wiliams making the most of his opportunity having come into the match as a replacement for Rashidi Boucher. Veerasammy Permaul, with the wickets of Smith, trapped leg before and a marginal return catch of the Barbadian captain Kevin Stoute, finished with two wickets for 44 runs off 10 overs.

Barbados will now meet Trinidad and Tobago in the final of the competition to be played at the same venue today.
