Barbados  cricketers  today  wrestled  the  advantage  from  Jamaica  on  the  rain  affected  second  day  of  the  Regional  Four  Day  final  at  Sabina  Park.

The  days  play  ended  early  because  of  rain  but  not  before  the  Bajans  moved  to  within  77  runs  of  taking  first  innings  points  at  197  for  3  replying  to  Jamaica’s  first  innings  total  of  273  all  out.

This  was  built  around  a  solid  3rd  wicket  partnership  of  144  between  Jonathan  Carter  who  is  unbeaten  on  96  and  Rashidi  Boucher  who  hit  a  half  century  52.

The  hard-hitting  Dwayne  Smith  is  the  other  not  out  batsman  on  16  and  with  Carter  they  have  put  on  24  in  an  unbroken  4th  wicket  partnership.

Andrew  Richardson  2  for  45  and  Nikita  miller  1  for  39  are  the  successful  bowlers  so  far  for  Jamaica.

The  four  time  defending  champions  Jamaica  resumed  this  morning  on  266  for  8   and  were  bowled  out  for  273.

Sulieman Benn ended with five wickets while Carlos Braithwaite took three.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
