Barbados U15s Rising Stars kings


Share post:

Barbados are the West Indies Rising Stars Under-15 champions.

They defeated pre-series contenders Leeward Islands by 16 runs in the fifth and final round of matches yesterday at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada.

Left-arm pacer Jakeem Pollard – in his only match, fellow pacer R’Jai Gittens, and consistently economical off-spinner Akobi Crichlow-Byer captured two wickets apiece – all from three overs – and Leewards were restricted to 57-8 from their allocation of 15 overs, replying to Barbados’ 73 without loss.

The Barbadians played unbeaten to end on 18.4 points in the rain-hit tournament to secure the title for the third time in four years following back-to-back wins in 2017 and 2018. (AR)
