Barbados Pride pace bowler Keon Harding ripped through Leewards Islands Hurricanes batting order to claim a five-for that saw the team dismissed for 90, in day one of the West Indies Championship match at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.   

Opener Montcin Hodge was the team’s top batsman on 24 and one of only three to make it into double figures after facing bruising spells from Harding and Miguel Cummins. 

Cummins struck in the first ball of the first over when he had opener Keacy Carty caught for a duck by Jonathan Carter.  The consistent Devon Thomas and Hodge sought to repair the damage and settled in to put on 36 for the second wicket.  Any hopes of a full recovery were, however, quickly dashed when Thomas was caught for 11 by Roston Chase off Harding.  He returned to claim the scalp of Hodge six overs later as the batsman’s resistance came to an end when he was caught by Marquino Mindley.  The team continued to struggle to establish themselves at the crease as Harding then dismissed Akeem Saunders for 5.  Jahmar Hamilton failed to add to the score when he was caught for a duck off Cummins, with Terrance Ward (19) and Alzzari Joseph the only batsmen reaching double digits as the order collapsed.  Harding ended with figures of 5 for 29, with Cummins claiming 3 for 34.

In response, Barbados were in early trouble after losing opener Shayne Moseley and Kraigg Brathwaite with only 10 runs on the board.  Moseley was run out for 1 by Nelson Bolan with Brathwaite caught by Devon Thomas off the bowling of Cornwall.  Shamarh Brooks, however, put an end to the slide as his unbeaten 79 from 144 pushed Barbados to 154 for 4.  Shane Dowrich (28) was the team’s other unbeaten batsman as the Pride ended the day with a 64-run lead.

An unbeaten knock of 89 from Jason Mohammed and half centuries from Kyle Hope and Jeremy Solozano saw the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force close on 338 for 5 at stumps on Day One of their West Indies Championships match against the Jamaica Scorpions at the Briana Lara Cricket Academy on Thursday.

Spinners Brian Charles and Imran Khan each claimed five wickets as the T&T Red Force wrapped up a comprehensive 190-runs against Windwards Volcanoes, in the West Indies Championship fixture at Arnos Vale.

The Volcanoes began the day behind the eight ball, chasing a sizeable 352 for victory. Charles quickly put an unlikely runs chase under early pressure after removing opener Kimani Melius for just 6 runs after he was caught by Khary Pierre.

Any hopes of even an unlikely draw were surely dashed when top batsman Devon Smith (17) followed four overs later, again the victim of Charles, this time caught by Anderson Phillip.

Roland Cato and Sunil Ambris seemed determined to at least postpone the inevitable after putting on a 40-run partnership for the fourth wicket.  The stand was, however, ended when Khan had Cato stumped by Denesh Ramdin for 21.  He accounted for Ambris two overs later as the batsman was caught by Tion Webster for 27. 

Next at the crease Alick Athanaze and Dennis Smith also did their share to push the score with a 44-run partnership for the sixth wicket but Charles had Athanze caught by Pierre for 15.  Khan then removed Dennis Smith, who was caught by Jason Mohammed for 42, the highest score of the innings.  Charles finished with figures of 5 for 72, while Khan had 5 for 65.

The Leeward Islands Hurricanes and T&T Red Force played to a predictable draw in a high scoring West Indies Championship encounter at Warner Park.

Beginning the day with a 195-run lead, the Hurricanes eventually declared at 315 for 6 on the back of 94 off 109 balls from Devon Thomas.  Thomas began the day on 22, alongside Hamilton, who opened on 23, and went on to score 77 from 86 balls.  Odean Smith was the pick of the bowlers after claiming figures of 2 for 64.

In pursuit of an unlikely 351 to win, the T&T Red Force got off to a strong start before losing opener Jeremy Solozano for 30.  Solozano was caught by Cornwall off the bowling of Damion Jacobs.  His opening partner Joshua Da Silva added 75 from 124 balls before being caught by Keacy Carty off the bowling of Cornwall, with Lendl Simmons adding 59 from 55 before being bowled by Alzarri Josephs.

At the close of play, the Red Force were 236 for 4 in their second innings reply, still, some 116 runs short of the total. Jason Mohammed (10) and Denesh Ramdin (22) were the not out batsmen at the crease.
