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.

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

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
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.
