By February 21, 2019

Middle-order batsman Tevyn Walcott’s half-century spared the Barbados Pride the blushes on the opening day of the match against the Windwards Volcanoes at Arnos Vale on Thursday.

After winning the toss and opting to bat, the Pride were in immediate trouble when in the first over, Sherman Lewis bowled Rashidi Boucher for a duck with only one run on the board. Lewis struck again the seventh over when he had Shayne Moseley caught by Dennis Smith for 9.

It was then 31 for 2.

Josh Thomas then took the first of his three wickets when he had Shamarh Brooks trapped lbw for 21 at 39 for 3. Thomas then removed Aaron Jones for 4 while Shamar Springer became the first of Larry Edwards’ three wickets, out for 6, as the Pride slumped to 60 for 5.

Walcott and Johnathan Carter launched a fightback putting together an 82-run sixth wicket stand to take the score to 142 when Thomas claimed his third wicket dismissing Carter for 42.

Walcott and Jomel Warrican than added 39 in taking the score to 181 when Walcott was caught by Sherman Lewis from a Ray Jordan delivery for 66. He struck nine fours during his innings that lasted 114 balls.

Warrican eventually went for 25 to Edwards as the Pride innings closed at 215.

Edwards was the best of the bowlers with 3 for 29 with Thomas returning figures of 3 for 55. Sherman Lewis had figures of 2 for 40.

In reply, the Volcanoes were 49 for 2.

Devon Smith (18) and Kavem Hodge (4)  are the batsmen out. Both were dismissed by Warrican who so far has figures of 2 for 12.

Kimani Melius (19) and Sunil Ambris (2) are the not out batsmen.

  • Williams century fuels Zimbabwe hopes against Sri Lanka Williams century fuels Zimbabwe hopes against Sri Lanka

    Sean Williams scored only his second Test century as Zimbabwe made a strong start in their quest to save the series with Sri Lanka.

    The hosts lost the first match of the two-game series in Harare by 10 wickets but reached stumps on day one of the second at the same venue on 352-6.

    It had looked as if it would be a difficult day for Zimbabwe when they were reduced to 49-2 inside the first 20 overs.

    However, Brendan Taylor, who went for a run-a-ball 62, led a recovery effort alongside Kevin Kasuza (38), but it was Williams' partnership with Sikandar Raza that turned the tide.

    Williams and Raza (72) put on 159 for the fifth wicket before the latter was removed by Lasith Embuldeniya (1-153), who endured an otherwise dreadful day with the ball.

    There was no stopping Williams from reaching his hundred, which was brought up in 131 balls with a sweep through the gap between fine leg and deep square leg for four.

    He faced six more deliveries before he was dismissed for 107 by Dhananjaya de Silva having struck 10 fours and three sixes, but Regis Chakabva (31 not out) and Tinotenda Mutombodzi (10no) are well set to push Zimbabwe past 400.
