WPCL: Patient Mosely, Brooks give Pride slow but steady first day
Very slow half-centuries from Shayne Moseley and skipper Shamarh Brooks were the hallmarks of the first day of the Windies Professional Cricket League (WPCL) game between the Barbados Pride and the Leeward Islands Hurricanes at Warner Park in St Kitts & Nevis.
Sent into bat, the Pride ended the day on 174 for two, with Moseley not out on 70 from a mammoth 225 deliveries.
Anthony Alleyne, 21, had forged a partnership with Moseley worth 33, before he went leg before wicket to Rahkeem Cornwall.
Determined to ensure there was no slide Moseley hunkered down with skipper Shamarh Brooks, who eventually went caught by Devon Thomas, off the bowling of Cornwall for 79 in the penultimate over of the day.
Brooks’ innings comprised of nine fours and three sixes, while Moseley has sent fielders scurrying to the boundary the same number of times but is yet to clear the ropes in his patient knock.
Jonathan Carter has joined Moseley at the crease and will return tomorrow on two.
Rahkeem Cornwall, so far, has taken 2-58, with his side having used seven bowlers on the first day.
