Barbados cricket team looks set for their battle with Guyana in the Carib Beer Cricket Challenge Series semi-final slated to bowl off at the Carlton Club

Sat Apr 08 2006 By Corey Greaves Compliments of the Barbados Advocate

BARBADOS fought back brilliantly to bowl out Guyana for 211 at stumps, after Guyana cruised to 100 without loss on day one of the Carib Beer Challenge semi-final at the Carlton Club yesterday.

Guyana was invited to bat first after Barbados won the toss, and the opening pair of Sewnarine Chattergon (51) and Krishna Arjune (55) patiently built up a strong foundation for the innings, while Barbados was grounding a number of their catching opportunities in the field.

After the visitors went to lunch on 54, they returned and brought up their century marker in 284 minutes off 270 balls and it looked as though the home team was not going to make any head way in the Guyana batting order.

However, experience pacer Ian Bradshaw broke the partnership when he had Arjune caught in the gully by the Barbados captain Ryan Hinds in the 45th over.Arjunes innings lasted 180 minutes and he struck five fours. < Read more >

BARBADOS' BID for regional cricket supremacy will resume when they take on the Windward Islands at the Tanteen Cricket Ground, outside St George's, Grenada.

It will be the team's second match in the Carib Beer Series. The opening match in Guyana was drawn, while the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) postponed the second match against Trinidad and Tobago until February.

The national selectors have drafted in West Indies players Tino Best, a fiery fast bowler; and Dwayne Smith, a flamboyant all-rounder.

The pair returned from the tour in Australia in early December and were automatic selections. They replace left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn and fast bowler Antonio Thomas.

West Indies pacer Fidel Edwards has been asked to rest by the WICB, while seamers Corey Collymore and Pedro Collins are recovering from injuries and were not considered for selection.

The Bajans are due to leave the island on Wednesday morning.

During the break WICB development officer Wendell Coppin was in charge of the team, as coach Hendy Springer was out of the island on a brief break.

Former West Indies players Vasbert Drakes and Ottis Gibson were also on hand to lend coaching tips to the players.

The team had sessions at the indoor nets at the 3Ws Oval at the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies, and had outdoor drills at Carlton Cricket Club.

The squad

Ryan Hinds (captain), Ian Bradshaw (vice-captain), Dale Richards, Wayne Blackman, Alcindo Holder, Patrick Browne, Kurt Wilkinson, Floyd Reifer, Ryan Nurse, Ryan Austin, Jason Bennett, Tino Best, Dwayne Smith; Hendy Springer (coach), Lawrence Maxwell (manager); Jacqui King Mowatt (physio).

Brian Lara looks set to take part in the Carib Beer Series when Trinidad and Tobago face Guyana at Guaracara Park next week Friday. PORT-OF-SPAIN – Brian Lara looks set to take part in the Carib Beer Series when Trinidad and Tobago face Guyana at Guaracara Park next week Friday.
Lara's appearance in regional first-class matches in recent times has been limited, but Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board president Deryck Murray has been in contact with the batting superstar, who has indicated his willingness to play.
"I have not been in contact with Brian as yet, but Deryck has been speaking to him, and from all indications Lara is fit and willing to join his teammates in their bid to win the regional cricket crown," manager Omar Khan told the Trinidad Guardian newspaper.
Lara, however, has been nursing an injured finger, and has been receiving treatment from physiotherapist Lisa Niles for the past four weeks.
He is expected to take the place of Jason Mohammed, who will be vice-captain of the Young West Indies on a tour of Pakistan and the 2006 ICC Youth World Cup in Sri Lanka over the next few weeks.
Trinidad and Tobago are looking for their first regional first-class title since 1985.

T'S THE 40TH YEAR of sponsored regional first-class competitions and the island with the richest cricket tradition in the region is on the verge of a 20th title. Barbados, for so long the established powerhouse in the region, are widely expected to be confirmed the 2005-06 Carib Cup champions this weekend. They come face to face with Trinidad and Tobago - Brian Lara and all - in the first first-class match at the Carlton Club and once they avoid defeat, the title is theirs.

For some, it's almost inevitable, but the champagne hasn't been put on ice yet. "There is still a lot of work to be done as far as the cricket is concerned," Barbados coach Hendy Springer said yesterday. "The season is not finished until the last match is played. We set out this season to play some positive cricket and to improve as well. We've been doing that for the majority of the time and for this Trinidad game, our preparation and enthusiasm have not waned."

Barbaos team in Carib Beer Series 2006Barbados start the match with 36 points, 12 more than Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana and even if Ryan Hinds' men lose, they will still stand a chance of Cup glory providing that Guyana beat Windward Islands in Grenada. It will result in a three-way tie at the top and calculators will break the deadlock. Even though Barbados will be guaranteed the Cup once they don't lose, the approach will be to press for a third successive victory, following victories over Jamaica and Leeward Islands. "If we get an opportunity to get first innings points, we will take it, but we're looking to get an outright win," Springer said. "We want to play positive cricket, as opposed to playing sit-back cricket. You don't want to lose, but if our cricket is going to improve as a team and as individuals, we've got to think about winning instead of thinking about not losing."

Barbados were dealt a blow yesterday with the news that the dynamic Dwayne Smith will be sidelined with the thigh injury he sustained against Leeward Islands in St Thomas last weekend. Smith's unavailability paves the way for the return of Kurt Wilkinson to the starting 11 for the first time since the opening match in November, while uncapped Kurt Edwards has been called in to complete the 13-man squad. "It is always a blow to lose a person like Dwayne Smith who can strike the ball so well and is also worth something with the ball and in the field," Springer said.

Carib Beer Cup winnersTRINIS CHAMPS AFTER 21 YEARS. Carnival came early for the Trinidad and Tobago cricketers as they won the regional first-class title for the first time in 21 years, beating Barbados by 264 runs at the Carlton Club yesterday. Superstar batsman Brian Lara led the celebrations after the match ended, pouring champagne and beer over his teammates. The visitors started the match needing an outright win and they achieved it to finish level on points with Barbados. They took the trophy by virtue of winning the head-to-head encounter.
