KRAIGG BRATHWAITE & JOHN CAMPBELL SCORE TONS AS WI U 19 CRUSH USA TWICE
Tuesday 12th July 2011
Broward County, Florida

– West Indies Under 19 Captain Kraigg Brathwaite and fellow opener John Campbell blasted tons in the first two matches of their four match tour of the USA. 

 
In the first match played at the Broward County Cricket Stadium on Saturday (rescheduled from Friday after a washout) Brathwaite struck a commanding unbeaten 122 as he led his side to 278 for 8 from 50 overs. In response USA Under 19 could only muster 63 all out from 29 overs as Kyle Mayers was the main destroyer with 5 for 17 from six overs. 
 
Donovan Nelson picked up two wickets while there was one apiece for Justin Greaves, Jerome Jones and Derone Davis as the Windies Under won by a crushing 215 run margin. 
 
In the second match, played on Sunday, the 17 year old left handed Campbell made a bruising 154 from 134 balls with nine fours and six maximums as he decimated the American bowling attack. Braithwaite followed up his century with 53 (75 balls, 1x4) and Ramon Senior hit 42 from 44 balls with a pair of fours and sixes. 
 
The USA Under 19s again collapsed for a low total handing the Windes Under 19 a 268 run triumph. USA Under 19 made a paltry 71 from 28.1 overs with no batsman reaching double figures. Extras topped the batting with 20 (14 wides, 6 leg byes). 
 
Mayers continued his fine form, picking up 3 for 13 from 7 overs. Kavem Hodge got 2 for 14 while there was a wicket apiece for Donovan Nelson (1 for 4) and Ronsford Beaton (1 for 22).
