WICB Regional 50-Over Tournament

St. Hill hits unbeaten half-century as batsmen show improvement in third Barbados one-day trial

Bridgetown, Barbados, September 4 - (www.bcacricket.org) - Craig St. Hill made a welcome return to form with an unbeaten half-century as he topped a much improved showing by batsmen in the third Barbados Pride one-day trial match at Foursquare Oval.

Apart from St. Hill’s 57 not out for Sulieman Benn’s X1 who lost by five wickets to Jonathan Carter’s X1, five batsmen got into the 40s.

Compared with the previous match at Bayfield in the same parish of St. Philip when 314 runs were scored for the loss of 20 wickets and only one batsman - Jameel Stuart - reached 40, there was much more purpose exhibited at the crease.

An opener by nature and playing at a ground he knows very well having spent five seasons with ESA Field Pickwick before leaving to the end of 2017 to join Wildey after Pickwick were demoted from the Elite division for the second time in three seasons, St.Hill was desperate for runs.

St. Hill slammed 173 against Foundation School on home turf in the second series of the BCA Super Cup on May 12 - the highest score of the 2018 Championship - but managed only one other score of over 50 for the rest of the Tournament - 65 off rookies Lords in Series 6 on June 9. He finished with 333 runs at an average of 37.00 before Wildey lost to Sagicor Life UWI in the semi-finals at 3Ws Oval on August 26.

Now batting at No. 4, St. Hill counted three fours and one six in his 75-ball knock, featuring in a fifth wicket partnership of 57 in 13.2 overs with Kemar Jabarry Smith, who made 22 off 39 balls as Benn's X1 scored 207 for six off 50 overs after winning the toss.

They were given a solid start by new Super Cup record holder for the most runs in a season, Shayne Moseley, who is expected to make his List A debut in the Cricket West Indies Super50 Championship in Barbados next month and Rashidi Boucher, who is seeking a recall at this level for the first time since February 2014.

Left-hander Moseley, who amassed 620 runs including two centuries and three fifties at an average of 68.88 for last year’s champions CounterPoint Wanderers before they were ousted by Boucher’s Massy Stores Spartan in the quarter-finals at Dayrells Road, scored 45 off 104 balls containing one six.

Boucher made 44 off 65 deliveries with four fours and one six before he was first out after a partnership of 83 in 21.5 overs - a victim of left-arm spinner Joshua Bishop, the Barbados Under-19 captain at last month’s regional three-day and one-day Youth Tournaments in St. Vincent.

Bishop displayed his generally tight stuff, picking up two for 15 off ten overs, while fast bowler Shakeem Clarke took two for 35 off eight overs.

Carter’s X1 also had an enterprising start with Anthony Alleyne and national Under-19 team player Shian Brathwaite, who both hail from Bayfield, putting on 96 in 24.3 overs.

Left-hander Alleyne was strong off the pads in scoring 45 off 73 balls with five boundaries, while Brathwaite made 34 off 75 balls including two fours before he was run out in the over following Alleyne’s dismissal.

The next best partnership was 78 in 15.2 overs for the fifth wicket between the in-form Jonathan Drakes and Leniko Boucher, who is vying for a place in the Barbados Pride team as a wicket-keeper/batsman.

Leniko Boucher scored 47 off 57 balls with three fours and one six, while Drakes was unbeaten on 41 off 47 balls including two fours to follow scores of 54 not out and 25 in the first two trial matches to spur Carter's team to victory with two overs to spare.

Considering that Drakes is also a capable wicket-keeper, the selectors could give him a chance with the gloves as well to stretch their options.

The next trial match is scheduled for Thursday, September 6, at Kensington Oval with experienced batting all-rounder Carter and wicket-keeper/batsman Mario Rampersaud as the captains.

Originally slated as a Day/Night to begin at 2 p.m, it has now been set as a day match, like the others, starting at 9:30.
