West Indies Championship 2022…
Sterling team performances kept the Jamaican Scorpions and Leeward Islands Hurricanes with the upper hand against their opponents after Day two of their third round matches in the 2022 West Indies Championship.
At the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba, the Scorpions had a great first day against the Windward Islands Volcanoes which led to the second being very progressive as they close in on victory in the four-day match.
On the first day, Volcanoes crumbled to 137 all out, compliments of Marquino Mindley (5-20) and Nicholson Gordon (4-43). In reply, Jamaica got to 118 – 4 at stumps. Trailing by 19 at the resumption of play, the Scorpions easily cleared the deficit and added a formidable one of their own.
Scorpions reached 346 all out in 87 overs as Brandon King turned in an impressive unbeaten knock of 119. He crafted the innings of 154 deliveries which included 22 fours. Support came from John Campbell (50), Leroy Lugg (36), Jermaine Blackwood (26) and Jamie Merchant down the order with a defiant 58.
Preston McSween was the best bowler for the Volcanoes side with 4 – 96 while Josh Thomas claimed 3 – 56, Sherman Lewis had 2 – 65 and Keron Cottoy bagged 1 – 30.
Scorpions’ lead of 209 could prove difficult for the opposition to overcome but they had a decent start in their second innings. They lost openers Kimani Melius (17) and Devon Smith (34) but Kaveem Hodge (30*) and Alick Athanaze (17) tried valiantly to avoid a repeat of the first innings.
Unfortunately for the struggling side, Athanaze fell late in the days’ play to end the day on 101-3. They trail the Scorpions by 108 runs going into the third day.
Hurricanes still sitting pretty…
Over at Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, the Leeward Islands Hurricanes control the cards in their battle with Trinidad and Tobago Red Force. At stumps on Day One, Hurricanes were 304 – 7, compliments of a century by Kieran Powell.
Powell ended the first innings with a career-best of 139 as his team rallied to 357 all out. Amir Jangoo (58) and Kacey Carty (31) and Jeremiah Louis with an unbeaten 42 played a great supporting rolling for Powell’s innings.
Jayden Seales with 5 – 49 was the pick of the bowlers for the Red Force. A wicket each was picked up by Bryan Charles, Akeal Hosein, Yannic Cariah and Jason Mohammed.
T&T’s reply was a paltry one of 140 all out as only Joshua DaSilva (65) and Charles (25) formed any kind of resistance against the Hurricanes’ attack. Colin Archibald (4-27) and Louis (4-32) were the chief destroyers for the Hurricanes. Hayden Walsh Jr. and Sheeno Berridge both picked up a wicket in the team effort.
When T&T’s innings expired, they were trailing by 217 runs but the opposition saw it fit to pile more runs on to their lead.
Hurricanes reached 23 – 0 at stumps with a lead of 240 runs and have two full days to record the victory against a faltering T&T side.
