Barbados Country in the Caribbean

Barbados is an island country in the Lesser Antilles of the West Indies, in the Caribbean region of North America. It is 34 kilometres in length and up to 23 km (14 mi) in width, covering an area of 432 km2 (167 sq mi). It is situated in the western area of the North Atlantic and 100 km (62 mi) east of the Windward Islands and the Caribbean Sea; therein, Barbados is east of the Windwards, part of the Lesser Antilles, roughly at 13°N of the equator. It is about 168 km (104 mi) east of both the countries of Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and 180 km (110 mi) south-east of Martinique and 400 km (250 mi) north-east of Trinidad and Tobago. Barbados is outside the principal Atlantic hurricane belt. Its capital and largest city is Bridgetown.

Most of the country is located contiguously in North America between Canada and Mexico.

Cricket Team sport played with bats and balls

Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a field at the centre of which is a 20-metre (22-yard) pitch with a wicket at each end, each comprising two bails balanced on three stumps. The batting side scores runs by striking the ball bowled at the wicket with the bat, while the bowling and fielding side tries to prevent this and dismiss each player. Means of dismissal include being bowled, when the ball hits the stumps and dislodges the bails, and by the fielding side catching the ball after it is hit by the bat, but before it hits the ground. When ten players have been dismissed, the innings ends and the teams swap roles. The game is adjudicated by two umpires, aided by a third umpire and match referee in international matches. They communicate with two off-field scorers who record the match's statistical information.

Biography

Born in Barbados in 1962, [2] Reid made his List A debut when the USA took part in the 2000–01 Red Stripe Bowl, playing three of the team's four group matches in Jamaica. His debut against the Jamaicans [5] was inauspicious as he went for 50 from his ten overs and was lbw to Laurie Williams for a duck. [6]

List A cricket is a classification of the limited-overs (one-day) form of the sport of cricket. List A cricket includes One Day International (ODI) matches and various domestic competitions in which the number of overs in an innings per team ranges from forty to sixty, as well as some international matches involving nations who have not achieved official ODI status. Together with first-class and Twenty20 cricket, List A is one of the three major forms of cricket recognised by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The 2000–01 Red Stripe Bowl was the 27th season of what is now the Regional Super50, the domestic limited-overs cricket competition for the countries of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB). It ran from 11 to 22 October 2000.

Jamaica Country in the Caribbean

Jamaica is an island country situated in the Caribbean Sea. Spanning 10,990 square kilometres (4,240 sq mi) in area, it is the third-largest island of the Greater Antilles and the Caribbean. Jamaica lies about 145 kilometres (90 mi) south of Cuba, and 191 kilometres (119 mi) west of Hispaniola ; the British Overseas Territory of the Cayman Islands lies some 215 kilometres (134 mi) to the north-west.

He did not play in the match against Canada, but was back in the side against his native Barbados, [5] taking his first senior wicket - that of West Indies Test batsman Adrian Griffith. [7] He was retained against Trinidad & Tobago, [2] but failed to make any impression as the USA were bowled out for a paltry 62, which their opponents rushed past for the loss of one wicket in 31 balls. [8]

West Indies cricket team Multi-national sports team

The West Indies cricket team is a multi-national men's cricket team representing the Anglophone Caribbean region and administered by Cricket West Indies. The players on this composite team are selected from a chain of fifteen Caribbean territories, which are parts of several different countries and dependencies. As of 24 June 2018, the West Indies cricket team is ranked ninth in the world in Tests, ninth in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and seventh in Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) in the official International Cricket Council (ICC) rankings.

His next appearances were in early 2004, at the ICC 6 Nations Challenge tournament in Sharjah and Dubai [5] which the United States eventually won on net run rate. [9] In the first match, against Namibia, he took 3-40 and scored 30 in a five-wicket win, as well as running out the Namibian captain, Deon Kotze. [10] Later in the competition he scored 55 in a losing cause against the Netherlands. [11]

Run rate

In cricket, the run rate (RR), or runs per over (RPO), is the average number of runs a batting side scores per over. It includes all runs made by the batting side in the innings to that point of the game, both the runs scored by the batsmen and extras conceded by the bowling team.

Namibia national cricket team national sports team

The Namibia national cricket team is the team that represents the Republic of Namibia and is governed by Cricket Namibia, an Associate Member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) since 1992, and became part of the High Performance Program in 2007. They took part in the 2003 Cricket World Cup in South Africa, though they lost all their games. They have played in each edition of the ICC Intercontinental Cup.

Shortly after the end of the Six Nations competition, Reid made his first-class debut at the 2004 ICC Intercontinental Cup against Canada in Fort Lauderdale. [12] He scored only 4 and 2 as the USA lost by 104 runs, but took 2-10 in six tight overs in the Canadian second innings. [13] Five games followed at the Americas Championship, a tournament he previously played in 2000, [14] before another Intercontinental Cup appearance, this time in a winning cause against Bermuda. [15]

First-class cricket is an official classification of the highest-standard international or domestic matches in the sport of cricket. A first-class match is of three or more days' scheduled duration between two sides of eleven players each and is officially adjudged to be worthy of the status by virtue of the standard of the competing teams. Matches must allow for the teams to play two innings each although, in practice, a team might play only one innings or none at all.

The ICC Intercontinental Cup is a first-class cricket tournament organised by the International Cricket Council (ICC) as part of its cricket development programme. It is designed to allow Associate Members of the ICC the chance to play first-class cricket matches over four days against teams of similar skill in a competition environment and prepare them for eventual promotion to Test cricket status. First run in 2004, two of the most successful teams in the history of the tournament, Ireland and Afghanistan were promoted to Full Member and Test status, in 2017.

The ICC Americas Championship is a one-day cricket tournament organised by ICC Americas for non-Test national cricket teams in the Americas affiliated with the International Cricket Council. As well as providing the opportunity for national teams to play international matches against teams of a similar standard, it also provides qualification into the ICC World Cricket League.

In September 2004, the USA played the first ODIs in their history, in the 2004 ICC Champions Trophy in England. [16] Reid had been caught up in Hurricane Frances, and at one stage had looked unlikely to make it across the Atlantic, [17] but he was rewarded for his perseverance when, opening the bowling in the first game against New Zealand, he had captain Stephen Fleming caught at cover. [4]

The 2004 ICC Champions Trophy was held in England in September 2004. Twelve teams competed in 15 matches spread over 16 days at three venues: Edgbaston, The Rose Bowl and The Oval. The nations competing included the ten Test nations, Kenya, and – making their One Day International debut – the United States who qualified by winning the 2004 ICC Six Nations Challenge by the smallest of margins.

England Country in north-west Europe, part of the United Kingdom

England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Wales to the west and Scotland to the north. The Irish Sea lies west of England and the Celtic Sea to the southwest. England is separated from continental Europe by the North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south. The country covers five-eighths of the island of Great Britain, which lies in the North Atlantic, and includes over 100 smaller islands, such as the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight.

Hurricane Frances Category 4 Atlantic hurricane in 2004

Hurricane Frances was the second most intense tropical cyclone in the Atlantic during 2004 and proved to be very destructive in Florida. It was the sixth named storm, the fourth hurricane, and the third major hurricane of the 2004 Atlantic hurricane season. The system crossed the open Atlantic in late August, moving to the north of the Lesser Antilles while strengthening. Its outer bands struck Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands while passing north of the Caribbean Sea. The storm's maximum sustained wind peaked at 145 mph (233 km/h), achieving Category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. As the system's forward motion slowed, the eye passed over San Salvador Island and very close to Cat Island in the Bahamas. Frances was the first hurricane to impact the entire Bahamian archipelago since 1928 and almost completely destroyed their agricultural economy.

This was the first wicket in ODI history for the United States, [4] although they were brought back down to earth by a thumping 210-run defeat, followed by a nine-wicket thrashing by the Australians. [18]

Reid last played for the USA in the 2005 ICC Trophy [3] in Ireland, [5] but despite two half centuries his bowling was ineffective, and he took just one wicket from 42 overs [2] in a disastrous competition for the Americans which saw them lose all four of their group games (one more was abandoned), thus denying the USA a place at the 2007 World Cup. [19] He hit 54 against Denmark, [20] but his best of 61 not out [2] came in a ninth-place play-off match which saw the United States beaten by Oman. [21]
