Crushing victory


CHITTAGONG – Barbadian Shamar Springer struck a stunning hundred as West Indies Under-19s clobbered minnows Fiji Under-19s by 262 runs here yesterday to pick up their first victory of the Under-19 Cricket World Cup.

Sent in, West Indies stormed to 340 for seven off their 50 overs with Springer, the lone Bajan in the regional squad, blasting 106 off just 78 balls, in-form opener Gidron Pope stroking 76 and Jyd Goolie, a breezy 66.

Seamer Cakacaka Tikoisuva finished with six for 59 from his ten overs.

In reply, Fiji could only muster a paltry 78 off 27.3 overs with Peni Vuniwaqa top-scoring with 29 to be one of just two batsmen to make it into double figures. (CMC)
