Solid Stoute steals show after passing 5 000 runs in top BCA three-day Championship

Bridgetown, Barbados, August 11 - (www.bcacricket.org) - Kevin Stoute continues to “Up Di Ting" with the bat in the last five seasons of the BCA Elite division three-day Championship.

Stoute's impressive, unbeaten 134 for ICBL Empire against Home & Improvement Hardware Supplies Maple at Bank Hall on the opening day of the current third series was the ninth century of his local top league career as he celebrated reaching 5 000 runs in the previous round against ESA Field Pickwick at Foursquare Oval.

And he is the second batsman for the season to pass 5 000 runs. Alcindo Holder, his former long-standing team-mate at Empire, achieved the feat on the second day of the opening series following a badly rain-hit opening day when he slammed 120 off 121 balls including eight fours and six sixes for Crane Resort St. Catherine against Massy Stores Spartan at Bayfield.

Co-incidentally, it was also the ninth top league century for Holder. Seven of his centuries are for Empire.

All-rounder Stoute, 31, has every reason to savour his latest hundred. It came in 218 minutes off 158 balls and contained ten threes and four fours, lifting Empire to the day’s highest total of 284 for nine off 75 overs after they were sent in.

All told, he has been at the crease for 256 minutes, faced 177 balls and counted 17 threes and five fours.

Stoute featured in a sixth wicket partnership of 120 in 18 overs with Jomel Warrican, the Barbados Pride left-arm spinner with Test experience, who scored 53.

Since 2013, Stoute has amassed 2 041 runs including five centuries in 29 matches at an impressive average of 58.31. Now in his 119th match at this level since making his debut for Spartan in 2002, he has 5 142 runs (ave: 37.53).

And he has taken a liking to the Maple bowling in the last three seasons, scoring 366 runs at an average of 183.00. Apart from the current knock, he made 58 at Bank Hall in 2015 and 24 and 150 not out at Trents last season.

Significantly as well, on three occasions, Stoute has reached 150 - all unbeaten. In addition to the knock against Maple last year, he slammed 150 not out in the first innings off Carlton at Bank Hall in 2010 (Series 6) and 151 not out in the first innings against Pickwick at Foursquare Oval in 2014 (Series 1).

Three times, he narrowly missed out on ‘tons’: 95 (1st innings) v Police at Bank Hall (Series 2), 2005; 95 (1st innings) against BCL (Series 5) at Bank Hall, 2006; and 96 not out (1st innings) v Spartan at Bank Hall (Series 5), 2011.

Stoute has also been one of the most productive batsmen in the BCA Sagicor General Twenty20 Championship since 2011, scoring 1363 runs including 12 half-centuries from 40 innings with ten not outs, at an average of 45.43.

Yet for some strange reason, he has been unable to earn a pick for at least the Barbados Tridents in the annual Caribbean Premier League Tournament.

But while the mystery continues, Stoute’s appetite for runs gets bigger.

It is about high time that those responsible for picking the Tridents squad take note, especially since they are reportedly still searching for a replacement for another all-rounder, Raymon Reifer, who is now on tour with West Indies to England for the three-match Test series, which starts August 17.
