Lewis claims seven against Windwards

Published:Thursday | July 31, 2014 | 12:00 AM


An astute hundred from Roland Cato took the edge off another destructive spell from Ramaal Lewis to revive Windward Islands after they stumbled against Jamaica in the Regional Under-19 Tournament yesterday.

Cato, the Windwards Under-19 captain, hit 127, as his side was dismissed for 252 in their first innings about 25 minutes before the scheduled close on the opening day of their third round match in the three-day competition.

Off-spinner Lewis, the Jamaica and incumbent West Indies Under-19 captain, was the pick of his team's bowlers, taking 7-57 from 32.3 overs, moving his tally of scalps for the tournament to 20.

Leroy Lugg, the West Indies Under-19 opener, was not out on four and Odaine McCatty was not out on zero, as Jamaica reached five without loss in reply when stumps were drawn at the Guyana National Stadium.

At Enmore: Barbados vs Leeward Islands. Leeward Islands 240-6 (Kacey Carty 114, Asham Hodge 48, Jaeel Clarke 27 not out, Joshua Drakes 3-66).

At Bourda: Guyana vs Trinidad and Tobago.

Guyana 228-5 (Tagenarine Chanderpaul 79 not out, Shimron Hetmyer 63, Samuel Roopnarine 2-44).

Provisionally, Windwards are third in the points table on 22.1 and Jamaica, last year's double-crown champions, are fourth on 20.8.
