Saint Lucia and WINDIES Under-19 batsman Kimani Melius propelled hosts Windward Islands to their second straight victory in the WINDIES Under-19 One-day Championship on Saturday.

Melius hit a boundary-studded 65 from 53 balls to top an even 50 from Uri Smith to carry the Windwards to a six-wicket victory over Leeward Islands at Cumberland.

Leeward Islands amassed 155/9 (43 overs). Melius hit four fours and five sixes, with a strike rate of 122.64 to lead the Windwards from the front.

The second highest run scorer as the Windwards got past the adjusted target at 154/4 (33.3 overs) was fellow Saint Lucian, Johnel Eugene, who struck a more sedate 29 off 47 balls.

Meanwhile, Manager Jose Mourinho retains the full backing of Manchester United’s board despite Sunday’s 3-2 Premier League defeat at Brighton.

The result and performance has attracted widespread criticism.

Mourinho is the favourite to be the next Premier League boss to leave his job, with suggestions that former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is being considered as a potential replacement.
