WICB Regional 4-day Tournament: Match Day 3 Round-Up


T&T Red Force vs Jamaica Scorpions

The Jamaica Scorpions eased to victory in the final session of a sunny matchday 3 at the Queens Park Oval. Needing 156 runs for victory, John Campbell (pictured) played a master class innings of 83 not out to guide the Jamaicans to the score with an hour to spare. He combined that innings with a stellar performance with the ball the day before, taking four quick wickets to help reduce the Red Force’s innings to 175 to prove the difference between the two teams. This is the first loss by the Red Force this season and a loss on debut as captain for Yannick Ottley. The Jamaica Scorpions lost their first game against Barbados but are now back in the thick of things.

 

Windwards Volcanoes vs Leewards Hurricanes

The West Indies Cricket Board will launch an investigation into the preparation of the pitch used for the match between Windward Islands Volcanoes and Leeward Islands Hurricanes in the Professional Cricket League Regional 4-Day Tournament in Dominica.

The Volcanoes romped to an easy eight-wicket victory over the Hurricanes inside two days at Windsor Park. The Hurricanes declared on a bizarre 24 for seven before lunch on the opening day before The Volcanoes powered to a lead of 116, through a half-century from opener Tyrone Theophile. One positive the Leewards will take from this game is the seven-wicket haul from teenaged fast bowler Alzarri Joseph. The Hurricanes were bowled out for 170, leaving the Volcanoes a nominal target of 55 which they got while losing only two wickets.

Barbados Pride vs Guyana Jaguars

Guyana Jaguars got the better of the Barbados Pride today and maximised their home field advantage to complete the victory by 9 wickets. Following a brilliant first innings century (121) by Vishaul Singh that gave the Jaguars a massive lead of 233 runs, the Pride’s efforts amounted to 272 the second time around after following-on. That left Guyana a target of 43 which they diligently chased in scorching conditions.
