BARBADOS - cricket - Tino Best

HATS OFF to Barbados' cricketers.
On a day of excitement and intrigue, they staged a grand revival against Trinidad and Tobago to move within heartbeats of a comeback victory against the defending double-crown champions.

After conceding a first innings deficit of 45, they hit back with venom to roll over the visitors for a modest 145 in the second innings when the aggressive Tino Best spearheaded the effort with the support of Dwayne Smith and Pedro Collins.

Tino Best made a rare appearance in the lower divisions. The Barbados and West Indies fast bowler turned out for ESA Field Pickwick against the Barbados Cricket League (BCL) in an Intermediate Zone "B" match at Blenheim "A". "The first division season is finished, but I still want to keep in shape, bowl some deliveries and get some batting practice," Best said. "Pickwick are out of the Knockout, so the next best thing was to play Intermediate." He made a bit of an impact too. Batting at No. 5, he hit the topscore of 39 in Pickwick's total of 125 and grabbed two wickets for 14 runs off six overs on a softish pitch as BCL closed on 71 for five. (HG)

David Scott, an Irish sports psychologist who observed them for three days in St Lucia last month, joined the squad in practice at Kensington Park and will remain here for the second Digicel Test against Pakistan.

Scott, a performance enhancement specialist who has worked with major sports teams in North America, has spent limited time with the West Indies, but has already made an impact, according to coach Bennett King. < Read More>

TINO BEST is back, but the West Indies selectors have resisted the temptation to make wholesale changes in the aftermath of a second successive Test defeat to South Africa.

After close to ninth months in the international wilderness with a back injury, the livewire Barbadian fast bowler is set to return in the fourth Digicel Test at the Antigua Recreation Ground, starting Friday. < Read more >

Front-runners Barbados again had to depend on Tino Best to pull them out of a hole, this time against West Indies “B” in their fourth-round Carib Beer Series match at 3Ws Oval .


Down to 170 for nine, Barbados again benefited from purposeful lower-order batting from Best, who hit two fours and two sixes in 36 not out as the side rallied to 217. Best then grabbed a late wicket as Windies “B” reached 30 for two at the close.

AT 3WS OVAL, Cave Hill – The “A” class performance came from the “B” team yesterday – for most of it any way.

West Indies “B”, the surprise package of the 2004 Carib Beer Series, continued their impressive run by outplaying the reigning double-crown champions and early front-runners for the vast majority of the opening day of their fourth-round top-of-the-table clash.

As “students” of the game, it was fitting that they chose the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies to win the early exchanges at the uniquely scenic ground that was hosting its first regional first-class match. < Read more >
