Jamaica recovered  from  a  middle-order  slump  to  reach  266  for  8  at  the  close  of  play  on  the  opening  day  of  the  Regional  Four  Day  cricket  final  against  Barbados  at  Sabina  Park.

This  after  Donavan  Pagon  and  Brenton  Parchment  dominated  the  Bajan  bowlers  to  post  a  century  second  wicket  partnership  of  112,  following  the  early  dismissal  of  Xavier Marshall  for  19.

Pagon  struck  9  fours  and  2  sixes  on  his  way  to  a  topscore  of  71  after  Tamar  Lambert  elected  to  bat  first,  while  Parchment   got  58  which  included  7  boundaries.

However  Sulieman  Benn  and  Carlos  Braithwite  produced  a  superb  spell  of  bowling  where  they   combine  to  remove  5  Jamaican  batsmen  for  41  runs   as  the  four  time  defending  champions  slumped  to  195  for  6.

However  an  unbeaten  knock  of   29  from  Nikita  Miller  and  15  not  out  from  Sheldon  Cotterel  so  far  putting  on  27  for  the  9th  wicket  saw  Jamaica to 266 for 8 at the close of play.

Benn has so far captured 5 for 90 and Braithwaite 3 for 38.

Jamaica is  on  the hunt for  a  historic  five  straight  titles and is seeking  to  stretch  its  100  percent  win  record  this  season to  8.

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.
