Barbados or Windwards could snatch U19 50-over title


    A new champion will be crowned in the Cricket West Indies Rising Stars U-19 tournament after rain washed out all three round four matches yesterday.

    The no-results mean defending champions Guyana, who are on 10.2 points, are out of title consideration.

    Table toppers Barbados (15.8 points) and host Windward Islands (14.8 points) now mathematically have a chance to win the tournament tomorrow.

    CWI says Barbados will cop the title if they gain 5.1 of a maximum 6 points against Leeward Islands while Windwards must earn at least 1.1 points more than the Bajans.

    If both teams are tied on points, net run rate will decide the winner.

    Trinidad and Tobago sit in 4th place with 8.7 points.

    The championship is being used to narrow down the West Indies squad in the buildup to the U19 World Cup in South Africa in 2020.
