Blackwood joined Campbell at the crease and together put on 73 for the second wicket when Campbell was dismissed off the bowling of Orlando Peters for well-made 81 that came off just 73 balls included seven fours and four sixes.

Blackwood carried his bat for the remainder the chase remaining unbeaten on 65 that came off just 64 balls and included four fours and two sixes.

He featured in a third-wicket stand of 36 with Andre McCarthy who made 14 before he became Sheldon Cottrell’s only wicket of the match, but by then with Jamaica at 195 for 3, the match was as good as won.
