CCC Marooners captain Carlos Brathwaite plays a shot during his innings of 69 against USA Cricket at the University of the West Indies, cave Hill Campus in Barbados.

Half centuries from Amir Jangoo and skipper Carlos Brathwaite, led the CCC Marooners to a 59-riun victory over the United States in their Group B Cricket West Indies Regional Super50 Festival game at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus on Saturday. 

Sent into bat, the Marooners scored 221-9 from their 50 overs thanks to 47 from Kjorn Ottley, and 69 apiece from Jangoo and Brathwaite.

The three scored heavily against the bowling of Elmore Hutchinson, 5-42, and Timil Patel, 2-27. Saurabh Netravalkar also grabbed two wickets but was expensive, with his efforts costing 61 from 10 overs.

Ottley was patient for his 47, the total coming from 82 deliveries that only had one boundary and a six.

Jangoo was a little more adventurous, striking six fours and a six in an innings that lasted 77 balls.

Brathwaite, even though he struck just four boundaries and hit two sixes, added some impetus to the innings, his 69 coming off just 61 deliveries.

The total didn’t look like much and the Marooners should have been hard pressed to defend it.

Initially it looked like the United States were not going to have a problem chasing the total, as Monank Patel, 53, and Steven Taylor, 32, had taken them to 81-1 in the 20th over.

Once that partnership was broken, however, there were to be no further challenges for the Marooners, who rotated their bowlers well, ensuring the target remained far away.

For the Marooners, Keron Cottoy was most destructive, taking 3-40, while Khesan Ottley also bowled well, ending with figures of 2-25, to complement the efforts of Jon-Russ Jagessar, who had 2-29.

Brathwaite ended with figures of 1-16, while Akeem Jordan had 1-30, and Jermaine Levy, 1-18.

  • Zimbabwe on top in Harare despite Sri Lanka fightback Zimbabwe on top in Harare despite Sri Lanka fightback

    Zimbabwe ended day two of the first Test with Sri Lanka in a strong position despite a five-wicket haul for Lasith Embuldeniya at Harare Sports Club.

    The hosts, playing their first home Test since 2017, finished day one on 189-2 thanks to half centuries from Prince Masvaure, Kevin Kasuza and Craig Ervine.

    Ervine was eventually dismissed for 85 on Monday when Suranga Lakmal (3-53) got one to nip back in and clatter the stumps. 

    Embuldeniya led the way for Sri Lanka with 5-114 as they continued to make inroads, but Sikandar Raza (41) and Donald Tiripano (41 not out) helped Zimbabwe to 358 all out.

    Captain Dimuth Karunaratne (12 not out) and Oshada Fernando made a promising start in reply for the tourists, but Tiripano's fine day continued when he cleaned up the latter for 21.

    Tiripano extracted the same movement Lakmal exploited by flattening Fernando's off stump, Kusal Mendis (6 not out) saw Sri Lanka through to 42-1 - trailing by 316 runs - along with his skipper when bad light brought play to a close.

    Day three is set to start at 09:54 local time following that earlier finish.

  • Livingstone answers Hales as Scorchers move above Thunder Livingstone answers Hales as Scorchers move above Thunder

    Liam Livingstone smashed 78 from 49 balls as Perth Scorchers romped to an eight-wicket win over Sydney Thunder to move above their opponents into fourth in the Big Bash League.

    Led by 85 from Livingstone's fellow Englishman Alex Hales, the Thunder had set the hosts 154 to win on Monday.

    But a magnificent opening stand of 136 from Livingstone and Josh Inglis (58) ensured the Scorchers made a strong response to losing back-to-back matches against the Melbourne Stars.

    The Scorchers are now one point clear of the Thunder, with both teams in contention to reach the playoffs with two matches each left to play.


    Hales was out for a duck in his last outing against the Sydney Sixers but after the Thunder won the toss and opted to bat, he delivered in this one.

    The former England international hit 10 fours and three sixes in his 59-ball outing, although he was lacking support from his team-mates.

    Usman Khawaja (11) and captain Callum Ferguson (4) both fell cheaply, before a 48-run stand between Hales and Arjun Nair (11) was ended by Chris Jordan.

    Jordan, who is set to join up with England and be replaced by Morne Morkel for the Scorchers, left on a high with an impressive 3-28, including a slower ball to finally get rid of Hales in the final over.

    A steady knock from Alex Ross (22 not out) helped the Thunder to close on 153-5, but it proved to not be enough as they fell to a fifth defeat in seven matches.


    The Scorchers' victory was inspired by their openers, who hit six maximums between them, three coming off deliveries from Liam Bowe (0-25).

    Inglis was hit in the helmet by Gurinder Sandhu (1-33) in the fifth over and, after a lengthy delay, made a brilliant response by smashing the next delivery for six over cow corner. 

    After racking up 64 runs in the first five overs, Livingstone and Inglis were in complete control and did not look back.

    Brendan Doggett had two horrendous drops off Livingstone but he finally held on to one to remove Inglis off the bowling of Sandhu.

    Livingstone, who brought up his fifty off 28 balls, was eventually caught by Ross at deep midwicket as he attempted to hit the winning runs, but any doubt over the match outcome had long since been removed.

    Captain Mitchell Marsh (two not out) came into do the honours as the Scorchers eased home with 4.3 overs to spare.
