Barbados will have a semifinal date with Guyana at Kensington Oval this weekend in the Carib Beer International Challenge Cricket Competition. The Bajans, who won the Carib Beer Series with an amazing 100 per cent record and 84 points, booked their spot several weeks ago, but had to wait until yesterday for their opponents to be confirmed.

Guyana destroyed Kenya by an innings and 114 runs to move to 40 points alongside Trinidad and Tobago. Guyana got the semis berth by virtue of their win over the Trinbagonians.

Barbados will be seeking to maintain their superb record and retain the International Challenge and keep their hands on the major trophies in West Indies cricket. Read more

The script could have been predicted – well, almost.

Barbados’ bowlers, unstoppable all season, ran through brittle Guyanese batsmen at two different stages on the opening day of the Carib Beer International Challenge semifinal at Kensington Oval.

In between the two periods of Bajan dominance, there was a record double-century stand between two batsmen whose credentials are well known.

Had it not been for Ramnarseh Sarwan’s impressive century and Shivnarine Chanderpaul’s 81, it would have been a complete embarrassment for Guyana. Read more

At North Stars, Crab Hill – This is one for the archives. This was super stuff.

The Carib Beer International Challenge final, thoroughly dominated by Jamaica over the first two days, swung full circle after a remarkable third day comeback by Barbados in which Corey Collymore was at the forefront.

The repeat Cup champions are heartbearts away from repeating their double success of last season.

No praise can be to too high for Courtney Browne and his men. Read more

Cup runneth over - Monday 29, March-2004

At North Stars, Crab Hill – It doesn’t get any sweeter than this. This is the best.

The 2004 Carib Beer International Challenge Trophy, won by Barbados to complete a phenomenal “double double”, is the most significant among the long list of successes captain Courtney Browne has enjoyed in his long stint in national colours.

It was achieved at 11:18 a.m. when Barbados defeated Jamaica by the comfortable margin of 84 runs before appreciative hometown supporters, 24 hours after the hosts appeared to be in a hopeless position.

It was Barbados’ fifth title under Browne’s inspirational leadership in the past two-and-a-half years and it was the tenth he has been part of since his debut for the country in 1991. Read more


There’s no cricket team in the Caribbean that can handle Barbados.
The Bajans completed an 84-run victory over Jamaica at Crab Hill, St Lucy, yesterday to take the double of winning the Carib Beer Cup and Carib Beer International Challenge.

After being led on first innings by 116 runs, Courtney Browne’s side fought back to post 315 in their second innings and gave Jamaica a target of 200 runs to win. But the visitors were dismissed for 115 in their second innings about 40 minutes before lunch to spark wild celebration by fans.
