Jermaine Blackwood scored the most runs, but fast bowler, Alzarri Joseph, topped the batting averages during the recently concluded West Indies Championships.
Cricket West Indies awarded the title to the Barbados Pride after deciding to cancel the last two rounds of the competition.
However, it was the Jamaican who came out on top of the individual batting statistics.
The 28-year-old middle-order batsman had a welcome return to the form that saw him force his way into the West Indies team in June 2014. He scored 768 in 15 innings at an average of 51.20. His only hundred was the 248 he scored against the Leeward Islands Hurricanes in early March.
In addition to the double-hundred, Blackwood had six fifties that helped the Jamaica Scorpions finish the season tied with dethroned champions, the Guyana Jaguars.
Kyle Mayers of the champions was the next best run-scorer in the competition with 654 runs that included two centuries and five fifties that pushed his average up to 50.30.
Devon Smith of the Windward Island Volcanoes was prolific as usual at the regional level scoring 649 runs. However, he only averaged 46.35 even though he scored a century and four fifties.
Jamaica’s Nkrumah Bonner had the highest average of the specialist batsman and was fourth in the aggregate with 523 runs. After a shaky start to the season, he finished with two hundreds and two fifties and an average of 58.11.
The top-five was rounded out by Joshua da Silva of the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force who scored 507 runs at an average of 50.70. He scored a century and three fifties.
However, the player with the highest batting average was the Antiguan fast bowler Joseph who had a decent season with the bat scoring 235 runs at an incredible average of 117.50s. He had two 50’s in the five innings he batted for the Hurricanes. (www.sportsmax.tv)
