REIGNING champions Barbados took first inning honours against hosts Jamaica yesterday in the West Indies Under-15 two-day cricket match at the St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) playing field.

At the close of the opening day, Jamaica reached 68-2 in their second innings courtesy of unbeaten knocks of 28 and 26 from Ricardo McIntosh and Rajhni Roye, respectively.

Barbados pace bowler Jarion Hoyte has so far taken 2-13.

Scores: Jamaica 149-6 (40 overs) and 68-2 (24 overs); Barbados 157-8 (40 overs)

Earlier, Jamaica batted first and were guided by Dominic Samuels (38) and Keshawn Beale (21) in mustering 149-6 off the allotted 40 overs.

Hoyte was the main man for the Barbados outfit — which beat Jamaica in the 2012 competition in St Kitts — in grabbing 2-52.

In reply, Barbados, led by Limar Pierce's 47 not out, edged to an important 157-8 in their 40 overs.

Ian Spence led Jamaica's bowling with 3-35.

In the match played at the Alpart Sports Club, Guyana trounced Leeward Islands by an innings and 32 runs.

Scores: Leeward Islands 46 (35 overs) and 44 (25.4 overs); Guyana 122-5 (39 overs)

Guyana's seam bowler Ronaldo Mohammed starred with incredible match figures of 13-22.

In the first innings, Mohammed took 7-11 and spinner Sagar Hathiramani supported with 2-7 to help dismiss the Leeward Islands for a dismal 46 in 35 overs.

In reply, wicketkeeper/batsman Adrian Sukwah cracked a fluent 53 and Mohammed chipped in with 22 as Guyana reached 122-5 in 39 overs when the allotted two-and-half hours of batting was completed. Jamuel Cabey was the top bowler for the Leewards with 2-28.

Batting a second time, the Leewards crumpled to 44 all out as Mohammed destroyed the batting with 6-11. Richie Luknauth took 2-9.

Heavy pre-match rain forced organisers to move the Trinidad & Tobago versus Windward Islands match-up from the Treasure Beach Sports Complex to the Manley Horne Park.

At close of play, Trinidad missed out on taking first innings points after reaching 134-5 at the end of the allotted time in reply to the Windwards team, which batted first and made 135.

Scores: Windward Islands 135 (32.4 overs); Trinidad & Tobago 134-5 (33 overs)

Trinidad & Tobago's Kriston Kallicharan snatched 5-19, while Joel Sutherland took 3-14 in helping to dismiss the Windwards for 135.

In reply, Keegon Simmons hit 56 and Kallicharan supported with 30, but Trinidad fell short.
