other newcomer, finished second in the ladies dou-
bles to Florida's Kelly Meares and Paula Murphy. In
the team competition T&T ended third behind Florida
At the seventh World Dart Federation Americas
Cup, also held in Florida, T&T won bronze overall.
Other teams congratulated T&T for their credible and
memorable performances saying: "Even their defeats

Tagenarine Chanderpaul showed
yesterday that the apple does not fall
far from the tree, as he struck a patient
unbeaten 79 to give the Guyana Under-
19 team the edge over T&T at the end
of the first day in the third round of
the West Indies Cricket Board Regional
U-19 tournament in Guyana.
Chanderpaul, son of West Indies bat-
ting stalwart Shivnarine Chanderpaul,
has a huge appetite for runs and spend-
ing long periods at the crease like his
father. Tagenarine spent the entire day
at the wicket batting for six hours, facing
289 balls and hitting nine fours. Young
Chanderpaul s knock took Guyana to
228/5 at the close.
Tagenarine and opening partner
Shimron Hetmyer put on 88 for the first
wicket in a partnership dominated by
Hetmyer. Hetmyer fell for 63 off 80 balls
as spin bowler Samuel Roopnarine
grabbed the first wicket. Guyana pro-
gressed to 101/1 at lunch. T&T had a
more successful second session grabbing
three wickets as Guyana got to 170/4 at
tea with Chanderpaul on 53 not out.
Guyana added a further 58 runs in the
final session with the loss of one more
wicket. Roopnarine battled hard for T&T
taking 2/44 in 30 overs. Justin Joseph
(1/59) and Akil Seetal (1/32) took one
In other matches, the Leeward Islands
are in front against Barbados closing on
240/6 batting first at Enmore. At the
Guyana National Stadium the Windward
Islands also had a solid day with the
bat scoring 252 all out against Jamaica.
In reply the Jamaicans closed on 5/0.
All matches continue today.
Guyana sealed the West Indies
Cricket Board Regional 50-over
Under-15 title yesterday with a
nervous 11-run win over hosts
Jamaica in the final round of com-
T&T lost its match by 34 runs
against Barbados which eliminated
its chances of defending the title.
Entering the final round, T&T was
in second position on 18.7 points,
just behind Guyana (18.8 points). To
ensure the trophy remained in T&T s
hands it needed to win and get
enough fast bowling bonus points.
Every wicket taken by a fast bowler
in the tournament earns .1 of a point.
Bowling first yesterday T&T lim-
ited Barbados to 234/8 as captain
Kirstan Kallicharan (3/42) and
Cephas Cooper (2/58) caused some
problems. Barbados skipper Joshua
Bishop was the best batsman hitting
56. Unfortunately, after getting to
79/1 in 19 overs T&T could not push
on and was dismissed for 200 in
45.5 overs. Kallicharan top scored
with 42, while Navin Bedaisee con-
tributed 41. Bishop was also effective
with the ball grabbing 3/31.
At Melbourne Oval, Guyana post-
ed a competitive 248/7 behind half
centuries from Steve Deonarain (60
not out) and Kris Ramnarine (54).
Jamaica was then bowled out for
237 as Guyana escaped with the win.
Guyana s captain Bhakshar Yadram
Guyana won four of its five
matches in the round robin tour-
nament to end on top.
CASTRIES---St Lucia Zouks Captain
Darren Sammy says temperamental
Barbadian fast bowler Tino Best needs
to live up to his seniority as a West
Indian international following his on-
field clash with Pakistani all-rounder
Shoaib Malik last week.
The incident happened last Wednes-
day in Barbados during a Caribbean
Premier League Match between the
Barbados Tridents and the Zouks.
Best was fined 60 per cent of his
match fee while Shoaib has been fined
half his match fee for the incident which
occurred during the Tridents innings.
"Tino is a special character. The more
I ve played with him, the more I grew
to understand him and the person he
is," Sammy said.
"In any cricket game, you want to
play in the true spirit of the game. I
hope it gets better because he s not a
young man. But he s still integral to
The showdown between Best and
Shoaib occurred after Best was put to
the sword by Dwayne Smith, who made
an unbeaten 110, and the Pakistani
right-hander who stroked 49.
Shoaib struck the Barbadian pacer
for two successive boundaries in the
15th over of the innings before being
bowled, leading to some physical con-
tact between the two players and an
exchange of words.
Sammy, also the West Indies T20
captain, says Best still has a lot to offer
the regional game.
"Once we control him and use his
head a bit more wisely, he s a good
asset for us. The cricket is being played
on the field. We ve spoken to Tino and
I see all of you [the media] all pointing
towards Tino Best, but there were two
guys involved in the incident. It was
not just one person," said Sammy.
"Everybody keeps jumping on Tino,
Tino, Tino. It takes two hands to clap.
We ve dealt with it the best way pos-
sible and we re moving on now." (CMC)
