KINGSTOWN, St Vincent—T&T defeated the Windward Islands by a 114 runs in their Regional Under-19 50-over Championships at Park Hill Playing Field yesterday.

T&T posted the day’s highest total of 219 and then routed Windwards for just 105.

Nathaniel McDavid (44), Avinash Mahabirsingh (39) and Justyn Gangoo, who made 24, mounted a serious lower order fightback for T&T after they had slumped to 84 for five.

Then in a sensational bowling performance, the T&T opening pair of Jayden Seales and Joshua James dismissed Windwards first four batsmen for ducks to practically seal the contest.

James finished with figures of 4-34, and with help from Justyn Gangoo who claimed 3 for 16, and Seales (2-16), they helped to wrap up T&T’s innings.

Meanwhile, front runners Barbados and Guyana maintained their unbeaten run in the Regional Under-19 50-over Championships, while Canada remained winless following the completion of the fourth round of matches yesterday.
