Barbados’ brilliance in the Carib Beer Series continued yesterday as they grabbed first innings points over the Leeward Islands to secure this year’s title.
It was the 19th regional first-class title for a nation that has now won the championship six times in the past ten seasons, repeating last year’s triumph.
Next week they will attempt to reach a perfect “seven-heaven” when they meet Trinidad and Tobago in south Trinidad. After that they will go after another repeat in The Carib Beer International Challenge.
Last night, however, the Bajans were feeling on top of the world after retaining the Cup on a day in which Sulieman Benn achieved the tenth hat-trick in regional first-class competitions and Sherwin Campbell batted through the innings on the way to a career-best unbeaten 211. < Read more >
Leewards hit for 6th - Sunday 15, February-2004

It was achieved with a day and session to spare, much to the disappointment of hometown fans and the St Thomas Cricket Association, which was expecting a mammoth Sunday crowd.
In the circumstances, the two teams have agreed to play a limited-overs match today.
Barbados won by an innings and 48 runs after Leewards, with a first-innings deficit of 271, were dismissed for 223 five minutes after the scheduled tea break.
The victory pushed the runaway champions to 72 points and on the verge of a regional record with just their final preliminary match against Trinidad and Tobago to come.
Yesterday’s demolition of Leewards came mainly by way of Pedro Collins’ three wickets, along with two each to Ryan Hurley and Dwayne Smith, after Ian Bradshaw took care of both openers the previous evening.
Overall, it was a performance that pleased acting coach Hendy Wallace.

Barbados, the defending double-crown Carib Beer Series champions, are facing their sternest test of a season in which they have been virtually unstoppable.
After the halfway stage of the International Challenge final, the repeat Cup champions are up against it. They might need Sir Garfield Sobers or the 3Ws to get them out of this one.
Ahead of today’s third day, they have an insignificant lead of 33 and only five wickets intact.
One of them is Floyd Reifer, who set a regional record yesterday when he hauled in his 17th catch of the season. Another key Barbados wicket remaining is captain Courtney Browne, who has saved his country time and again.
The crisis they face this morning, however, seems to be more daunting than usual.
