Jamaica get better of Barbados

Batting first yet again – five times in five matches – Barbados were restricted to 209 for eight, their lowest total, which was significantly boosted by an onslaught in the last 30 balls.

The Defeat still left Barbados second in the table on 12 points, the same as the Windwards, who they will meet in the semifinals today in Georgetown.

The signs were there from the very beginning of the Jamaican response.
