HOSTS Barbados have won the West Indies Cricket Board’s Regional Under-19 Three-Day cricket title despite playing to a draw with Guyana on the last day of the final round today.
Set 85 for victory, Barbados reached 28 without loss before the game, which was played at the Desmond Haynes Oval, Black Rock, St Michael, was called off.
Earlier, Guyana were dismissed for 159 in their second innings after resuming the day on one run for two wickets. Pacers Akeem Jordan (3-22) and Darnell Greenidge (3-35), along with left-arm spinner Chad Williams (3-44), shared nine wickets.
Barbados, despite not winning any of their five matches, finished on 45.5 points, ahead of Guyana who came second with 37 points.

Windward Islands were fourth on 36, defending champions Jamaica fifth on 29 points while the Leewards finished last on 21.5 points. (CMC/EZS)
