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.

A powerful unbeaten century from Jonathan Carter handed the Barbados Pride a sensational four-wicket win over T&T Red Force on a day they began with it all to do at Kensington Oval.

In pursuit of a sizable 309 for victory, things began in bleak fashion when the overnight openers Shane Mosley and Rashidi Boucher were sent packing early.  Mosley only managed to add three to his overnight total as he was caught by Jeremy Solozano off the bowling of Daniel St Clair.

 Boucher departed just three overs later when he was caught, for 15, by Joshua Da Silva off Ravindaranth Rampaul to leave the squad wobbling at 24 for 2.  Aaron Jones was next to be dismissed when he bowled for 11 by Bryan Charles to leave the team at 53 for 3.

Carter, however, began the recovery effort and after losing Kevin Stoute (11) and Nicholas Kirton (12) as early partners, put on a massive 128 for the sixth wicket with Shamar Springer.

 The middle-order batsman then added another 94 for the seventh wicket with Tevyn Walcott, who was also unbeaten on 48.  Springer was good for a solid 66 from 105 balls. 

Red Force bowler Yannic Cariah was unable to repeat his first innings heroics as he claimed 1 for 30.  Daniel St Clair was the team’s most successful bowler after ending with 2 for 59.  The Pride reached their target a 326 for 6.

 

The Barbados Pride are 15 without loss in chase of 324 for victory headed into the last day of their West Indies Championship game against the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Kensington Oval. 

Defending champions of the West Indies Championship, the Guyana Jaguars must have thought they were in for an easy day, but a lower-order stand from the Jamaica Scorpions of 90 have meant they were made to wait. 

The Windward Islands Volcanoes crushed the remaining resistance from the Barbados Pride to secure a comfortable 8-wicket win at the Kensington Oval on Sunday.

Resuming the day still some 60 runs short of the Volcanoes first innings total of 470, the overnight duo of Shamar Springer and Tevy Walcott did not add much more to their total before heading back to the pavilion.

Walcott became was Ray Jordan's first wicket of the innings when he was out for 27 after being caught by Larry Edward.  Springer stuck around a few overs more but after adding 24 to his overnight total became Kaven Hodge’s third wicket of the innings when he was caught by Obed McCoy.

Ashley Nurse added a productive 32 from 36 deliveries by became Jordan’s second wicket when he was caught by Taryck Gabriel to end the innings at 250 all out for an overall lead of 33.

In pursuit of the small target, Gabriel was dismissed in the third over without scoring and Roland Cato caught by Walcott off Chemar Holder but Smith and, who was not out on 10 and Kirk Edwards (8) eased the team over the line.

The Barbados Pride are in a last-day fight for survival when their West Indies Championship game against the Windward Islands Volcanoes at Kensington Oval resumes on Day 4. 

Barbados Pride speed twins Marquino Mindley and Shamar Springer each grabbed four-fors in a devasting performance that floored the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, with a 7 wicket in the West Indies Championship on Saturday.

Forced to follow on after falling short of the Pride first innings total 215, the Red Force were bundled out for 103, falling below even their first innings total of 170.

 In their second stint at the crease, the Red Force batsmen may have dreamt of a big total, but Mindley and Springer clearly had other ideas as they hassled the men at the crease into departing at regular intervals.

In fact, Mindley struck after just 10 balls, removing opener Jeremy Solozano (8) who was caught by Jonathan Carter.  Amir Jango followed soon after, leaving the Red Force at 2 for 10 after being dismissed in identical fashion for 4 runs.  Experienced batsmen Denesh Ramdin and Jason Mohammed did not fare much better.  Mindley had Mohammed caught for 10, with Ramdin just failing to get into double figures when he was gobbled up by Tevin Walcott off the bowling of Kevin Stoute.

Despite barely getting to the century mark, things could have looked a lot worse for the Red Force were it not for a 52-run partnership by Odean Smith and Imran Khan for the 7th wicket.  The resistance ended when Khan was bowled by Stoute for 25 and Smith removed by Springer who had him caught by Jonathan Carter for 28.  Springer went on to tear through the rest of the lower order, ending with figures of 4 for 24.  Mindley captured 4 for 47.

The Pride made quick work of the modest target with Anthony Alleyne (22) and Jonathan Carter (25) getting the majority of the 58 runs needed.

Kevin Stoute took 6 for 34 to reduce the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force to 170 all out after just 60.4 overs against the Barbados Pride at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy on Thursday.

Defending West Indies Championship side, the Guyana Jaguars made short work of their Kensington Oval final-day clash against the Barbados Pride, romping to a 6-wicket victory that, in truth, wasn’t even as close as that. 

A four-for from Guyana Jaguars spinner Veerasammy Permaul severely hampered the efforts of Barbados Pride as they struggled in pursuit of a humungous first innings total on day three of the four-day West Indies Champions on Sunday.

At stumps, despite battling half-centuries from Shane Dowrich and Johnathan Carter, Barbados Pride were well short of the total and were all-out for 360, still, some 188 runs short of the Jaguars 548. 

The Pride began the day looking to solidify the innings, following the previous day’s loss of opener Shayne Mosely.  Kraigg Brathwaite and Shamar Brooks put on a partnership of 73 runs but the team was soon in trouble again.

 It was Brooks (34) who would become the first of Permaul’s four victims after being caught by Leon Johnson.  Brathwaite (43) followed did not stay long after and followed five overs later after being bowled by Clinton Pestano. 

With the typically reliable Roston Chase, next to bat, managing to add just one run to the total before being gobbled up by Johnson, again off Permaul, the Pride looked in real danger at 123 for 4.

Carter, who had 68 off 107 balls and Dowrich (81 off 113), however, came together to form the base of the Pride resistance as they put on 131 for the fifth wicket.  Permaul again figured prominently in both dismissals, bowling Carter and catching Dowrich off the bowling of Sherfane Rutherford. 

Barbados captain Jason Holder (44 from 87) and Jomel Warrican (23 of 35) added late runs to push the Pride score, but the team will have its work cut out on Monday’s fourth day.  Permaul ended with overall figures of 4 for 124, with Raymond Reifer and Pestano claiming two wickets each.

Centuries from Anthony Bramble and Chandrapaul Hemraj led the way as defending West Indies Championship side, the Guyana Jaguars ended Day two with a massive lead over the Barbados Pride.

Scores in the match so far, sent into bat, the Jaguars scored 548 all out, with the Pride going in search of the runs at 33-1.

On day one, Hemraj scored a good-looking 144 from 172 deliveries to put the Jaguars in control of the first innings before 75 from Raymon Reifer, 130 not out from Bramble, and 54 from Sherfane Rutherford, left the Jaguars in a wonderful position with two days of cricket to go.

Veerasammy Permaul and Clinto Pestano, 32 each made sure the Pride bowlers would suffer a little longer, while Tagenarine Chanderpaul had a 150-ball 37 that complimented Hemraj’s innings at the top of the order brilliantly.

Ashley Nurse was the pick of the suffering Pride bowlers, bagging 4-122 from 38 overs, while there was a wicket apiece for Jason Holder, 1-47, Jomel Warrican, 1-124, Roston Chase, 1-57, and Jonathan Carter, 1-31.

The Jaguars batted for all but 14.1 overs of the last two days but have already made inroads into the innings of the Pride with Shayne Mosely out for 15. Kraig Brathwaite is not out on 11 with Roston Chase to come in the morning.

The Pride will, in the morning, try to overhaul the 515-run deficit they are in and try to make a game that, at the halfway stage, looks like either a draw or a win for the defending champions.

Jomel Warrican took eight wickets Friday as the Barbados Pride fought back against the Jamaica Scorpions in the Windies Championship match at the 3W’s Oval on Friday.

Four-time defending champions Guyana Jaguars defied half-centuries from former WINDIES Under-19 star, Alick Athanaze and opener Tarryck Gabriel to open the West Indies Championship season with a comfortable 125-run victory over Windward Islands Volcanoes on Sunday.

Veteran left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul was the pick of the Jaguars bowlers, as they overcame defiant batting from the Volcanoes to stretch their unbeaten run in the Championship to 19 matches, dating back to the 2016-17 season.

It was also the Jaguars’ seventh win over the Volcanoes in their last nine matches and keep their five-year unbeaten run against this opponent in place.

At the same time, Terrance Warde and WINDIES fast bowler Alzarri Joseph shared seven wickets to bowl Leeward Islands Hurricanes to an unlikely, 34-run victory over Barbados Pride at the Three Ws Oval.

Jaguars (224 & 310-4 dec) beat Volcanoes (187 & 222) by 125 runs in Gros-Islet, St. Lucia

Athanaze hit the top score of 64 that included five fours and two sixes from 138 balls, and Gabriel hit seven fours in 57 from 124 balls.

But their bid for Volcanoes’ survival was not enough, as Permaul snared 3-56 from 23 overs to lead the Jaguars’ attack and three other bowlers ended with two wickets apiece.

Starting the day on 54 for two, the Volcanoes got some early stability, as Kavem Hodge and Gabriel completed a 54-run, third-wicket stand.

The dismissal of Hodge – caught at mid-off off Permaul for 32 – triggered a shaky period for the Volcanoes, as they lost three wickets and slipped from 88 for two to 114 for five.

A sixth-wicket stand of 88 either side of lunch between Athanaze and Denis Smith frustrated the Jaguars for over an hour and took the Volcanoes past the 200-run mark.

Smith was caught at cover off Christopher Barnwell for 38 and the home team lost their way and the last five wickets for 20 in the space of 55 balls.

Clinton Pestano was named Player-of-the-Match for his all-round showing in the match.

Hurricanes (252 & 165) beat Pride (248 & 135) by 34 runs in Cave Hill, Barbados

Warde grabbed 4-33 from 15.5 overs to lead the demolition of the Pride batting, Joseph supported with 3-16 from 13 overs and leg-spinner Damion Jacobs added 2-37 from 10 overs, as the home team were bowled out inside the final half-hour before tea.

The result was formalised, when former WINDIES Under-19 World Cup-winning star Chemar Holder mistimed a lofted drive at a delivery from Warde and was caught at mid-off for a first-ball duck.

Chasing 170 for victory and resuming from their overnight total of 13 for one, the hosts stumbled to 82 for four at lunch, and suffered a huge setback in the first over after the interval, when their captain Sharmarh Brooks was one of six batsmen that was bowled in the innings.

Brooks led the way with 32, wicketkeeper/batsman Tevyn Walcott made 30 and Jonathan Carter got 24, but there was little stability from the Pride batting and they suffered their second straight defeat to the Hurricanes on home soil in this format.

Hurricanes opener Keacy Carty was named Player-of-the-Match for his first innings hundred.

Pacer Jermaine Levy is the only newcomer to the Jamaica Scorpions 13-man squad named on Tuesday for the West Indies Championship that bowls off later this month.

The Barbados Pride were up against it after a recent loss to the Combined Colleges and Campuses left them in a fight for a semi-final place in the Cricket West Indies Regional Super50 Festival but found a way to win against a Jamaica Scorpions that have been very good on occasion.
