Jamaica  will oppose Barbados  in  the  championship  match  in the  Regional Four  Day  Cricket  Competition.

This  after notching their  7th  straight victory in the regional  competition on Sunday  after  beating Guyana  by  133  runs  in  their  semi-final  clash  inside  of  three  days  at  Sabina  Park  to remain  on  course  for  an  unprecedented fifth successive First Class title.

Resuming  on  their  overnight  99  for  3  , Jamaica  batted  poorly and  was  bundled  out  for  189 after  adding  just  90  to  their  overnight  score.

Xavier  Marshall  topscored  with  59  after  adding  just  5  to  his  overnight  54.

Captain Tamar Lambert  helped  to  steady  Jamaica’s  slide  when  he  stroked  three  fours  on  his  way  to  37,  while  adding   an  important  35  for  the  5th  wicket  with   David  Bernard  jr  who  contributed  16.

Davendra  Bishoo  was the  man  doing  the  damage  claiming  5  for  62, while  Veersammy  Permaul  grabbed  3  for  51.

Set  260  for  victory, Guyana was  cut  down for 126 by  Nikita  Miller  who  captured  4  for  28, Odean  Brown 3  for  42  and Andrew  Richardson 2  for  21. It was an identical score to their first innings total despite Assad Fudadin’s topscore of 24.

Final scores Jamaica 196 & 189, Guyana 126 & 126.

Meanwhile  at  the  Queens  Park  Oval,  Barbados crushed  Trinidad and Tobago  by  227  runs  inside  of  three  days  to  secure  their  place  in the  final.

The  Bajans  added  100  to  their  overnight  total  of  116  for  5  and  then  produced  another  clinical  bowling  performance  to  rip   out  the  Trinis  for  128 after  they  were  set  a  challenging  356  for  victory.

The final will be played at Sabina Park.

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.
