BARBADOS - cricket archive THE National Sports Council's Under-13 cricket team 2005
Date August 27, 2005 Compliments of the Nation News
THE National Sports Council's Under-13 cricket team is on a roll in the St Kitts International Festival in Molyneux. They moved their record to 2-0 yesterday with an impressive eight-wicket win over Nevis.
Nevis won the toss and batted, but their entire batting line-up was back in the pavilion after just seven overs, as Bajan pacer Shan Merritt bowled four batsmen on his way to match-winning figures of six for 16 from six overs.
In reply, Barbados lost openers Anthony Alleyne (5) and Akeem Barker (7) cheaply, but still easily reached their target. Merritt was an easy choice for the Man-Of-The-Match award.
DEFENDING champions Barbados defeated Dominica by 45 runs yesterday, for their fourth straight victory in the St Kitts Under-13 Cricket Festival, setting up a showdown with the unbeaten host country for title in the final round tomorrow.
Playing at Molyineaux, Barbados were dismissed for 89 in 24.2 overs, but routed Dominica for a meagre 44 in 18.1 overs.
Sent in, Barbados raced to 32 without loss in three overs with captain Anthony Alleyne making a quickfire 24 before he was run out.
Barbados then slumped to 44 for four against Dominica's left-arm spinner Kavern Hodge (3-3) and off-spinner Miguel Bruney (2-5) as Roston Chase (5), Kraigg Brathwaite (1) and Dario Harris (2) went cheaply.
Allrounder Kyle Mayers steadied the ship with a sensible knock of 21.
In response, Dominica were undermined by Alleyne, who
bagged three for one with his leg-breaks while medium pacers Chase and
Rascelle Gittens took two wickets each for eight and 13 runs respectively.
Kenny Liverpool made 19 for the Dominicans.

Batting first, Barbados amassed an imposing total of 174 for three off 25 overs, with the left-handed Alleyne scoring 65, including eight fours and one six, off 61 balls. He featured in a rousing 71-run second-wicket stand with Roston Chase, who made 36 with two fours and a six.
Kraigg Brathwaite and Kyle Mayers belted 43 runs off the last two overs. Brathwaite clobbered four sixes and a four in a breezy 36 not out off just 17 balls, and Mayers made a cameo 21 not out, studded with three sixes, from a mere nine balls.
In response, the previously unbeaten Kittitians were restricted to 99 for nine in their 25 overs, with Andre Hicks (31), Dilyn Liddie (21) and Akeem Saunders (ten) getting into double digits.
Alleyne then grabbed five for 27 off five overs with his leg-breaks to complete a fine all-round match and maintain Barbados' unblemished record in the festival.
Chase and Rascelle Gittens supported with one wicket each for ten and 19 runs respectively, while Justin Greaves' five overs yielded 19 runs.
It was Barbados' third capture of the title, following their triumph in 2002 and last year, and extended their unbeaten record to 15 matches.
Alleyne was named Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the second straight year for his aggregate of 223 runs and 11 wickets.
