Kingstown, St. Vincent And The Grenadines - Barbados made it consecutive titles in the past month, as they emulated their Under-17 counterparts to win the West Indies Rising Stars Under-19 Championship by 4.7 points ahead of Windward Islands.

Round Five was hampered by rain with only two of the three matches seeing action as the Windward Islands versus Jamaica game at Cumberland was abandoned without a ball bowled.

Barbados and Windward Islands entered Round Five sitting in the top two spots in the table respectively, with the Rising Stars Championship title on the line.

Based on points allocation permutations for bonus and fast bowling points, set out in the CWI tournament playing conditions, Windward Islands needed to win their match and gain 1.1 points more than Barbados, to be crowned champions, while Barbados needed to win and gain at least 5.1 match points.

Congratulations to Barbados! They won both the Under-17 and Under-19 titles this year.

This should translate to regional domination in about 5 years, if the better young players are allowed to participate at higher levels, and develop their game.

A pity rain deprived Windwards of the opportunity to out point
