Barbados Pride crush Leeward Islands Hurricanes

After the home team polished off the Leewards’ first innings on the third morning at Kensington Oval to gain an advantage of 270 runs, the visitors offered only token resistance in their second turn at the crease before they were dismissed for 80 shortly before the scheduled tea interval.

Leewards, resuming their first innings on 84 for five replying to 406 for six declared, managed 136 as Barbados Pride continued to make steady inroads. They were asked to follow-on but feared even worse when batting a second time before the innings ended at 2:34 p.m.

The damage for Barbados Pride throughout both innings was inflicted mainly by pacers Carlos Brathwaite and Tino Best, along with left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican.

Brathwaite, who scored 60, enjoyed an outstanding all-round match in which he claimed four wickets for 18 runs in the first innings while Warrican took four for 33 in the first innings and followed up with three for 17 in the second.

Best, playing his first match of the season, collected two wickets in both innings, while fellow pacer Miguel Cummins bagged three wickets in the second innings.

Barbados Pride earned 16 points for the match and Leeward Islands Hurricanes one.

Shane Dowrich was named Man-of-the-match for his unbeaten 131.

Summarised scores: Barbados Pride 406-6 declared (Shane Dowrich 131 n.o., Kraigg Brathwaite 72, Carlos Brathwaite 60, Ashley Nurse 34 n.o., Roston Chase 30; Orlando Peters 2-67).
