KAMARIO GRANT struck a magnificent unbeaten 137, as two-time defending champions Barbados Under-15s defeated winless Leeward Islands by 134 runs in Round 3 of CWI 15 Super 50 yesterday.

Playing at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, in Antigua, Barbados elected to bat and made an imposing 318 for eight from the alloted 50 overs. Leeward Islands were limited to 184 for eight.

Grant’s innings contained 11 fours and four sixes from 123 deliveries in 157 minutes at the crease.

Barbados were reduced to 66 for four after 17 overs. The well built right-hander then took over the show. The rescue act began when he and fast-bowling all-rounder Rashad Worrell put on an attacking 57 in 46 balls for the fifth-wicket. Worrell hit a 29-ball knock 39 with three fours and two sixes.

At the half-way stage it was 134 for five.

Grant and wicketkeeper/ batsman Dakio Worrell who is vice – captain put on a fine sixth-wicket stand of 95 in 14.5 overs. Worrell made 40 from 42 balls, including two boundaries.
