Tue, Nov 25, '14
Bridgetown, Barbados, November 23 - (www.bcacricket.org) - As widely expected, former national captain Ryan Hinds, Kyle Corbin, Roston Chase and Tino Best have taken the places of the four West Indies players named in the Test squad for South Africa for the Barbados Pride Round 3 WICB Professional Cricket League first-class match against Guyana Jaguars at Providence in Guyana, starting November 28.
Captain and opener Kraigg Brathwaite, left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn and fast bowlers Kemar Roach and Jason Holder will all be leaving the Caribbean on November 30 for the three-Test series against the South Africans.
GEORGETOWN, Guyana, CMC – Windward Islands suffered another batting meltdown thanks to an eight-wicket haul from left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul, and crashed to a 92-run defeat to Guyana Jaguars, in their second round game in the WICB Professional Cricket League here Monday.
With play finally getting underway for the first time in four days, only 43.4 overs were possible on the final day at the Windward Sports Club, and both teams meandered their way to whatever points they could salvage.
Sent in, Jamaica rattled up 111 for four declared off 40 overs, with Shacaya Thomas stroking a fluent 59 off 73 balls, with six fours.
The 23-year-old right-hander stroked a responsible, unbeaten 76 as Red Force, set 203 for victory at Warner Park, easily reached their target by six wickets and inflict a second straight defeat on the luckless Leeward Islands.
Khan turns tables on the Leeward Islands BASSETERRE, St Kitts, CMC – Trinidad and Tobago turned the tables on troubled Leeward Islands, and were closing in on a come-from-behind victory on the penultimate day of their second round clash in the WICB Professional Cricket League here Sunday.
After trailing on first innings, Red Force hit back strongly to bundle out the hosts for 130 in their second innings, and set themselves an uncomplicated victory target of 203 at Warner Park.
At the close, they had reached 95 for two, and were requiring a further 108 to win the contest.
The Test player, who has struck two centuries in the new-look WICB Professional Cricket League, broke the backbone of Windward Islands Volcanoes’ batting with his part-time off-spin, to send the visitors careening to a disappointing 184 all out.
Securing a lead of 107, Guyana reached the finish on 133 for five – 240 runs ahead going into Monday’s final day at the National Stadium at Providence.
Yet another washout on Day 3 of Barbados, Jamaica PCL second round clash
Bridgetown, Barbados, November 23 - (www.bcacricket.org) - Despite generally sunny conditions, mainly in the afternoon and late evening, it was another washout on the third day
The warning lights set off by Darren Bravo's decision to decline selection for West Indies' imminent tour of South Africa "for personal reasons" are too strong to be ignored. No less so is the continuing absence from any cricket since June of Kieran Powell.
They are signals that the two left-handers, the most naturally gifted of the current West Indies batsmen, could well be the latest on the expanding list of professional cricketers overcome by the constant grind of global travel and worn down by the need to succeed in a demanding and fiercely competitive professional environment.
The medical term for the problem has evolved from "acute fatigue syndrome" to "stress-related condition" to simply "depression".
Resuming at their overnight 133 for six, their batsmen rallied to a respectable 202 all out and their bowlers then picked up on that cue, as they bundled out Red Force for a hugely disappointing 130 in their first innings.
Deonarine, Chanderpaul and Peters shine bright on sunny second day
NARSINGH DEONARINE reached his 11th first class ton, Shivnarine Chanderpaul got another half century and Kenroy Peters claimed his sixth fifth wicket haul on a sunny second day in their second round West Indies Cricket Board/Professional Cricket League Regional four day encounter at the Guyana National Stadium, yesterday.
Replying to Guyana’s first innings score of 291 all out, of which Deonarine made 139 and Chanderpaul 62, with Peters picking up 5 for 36, the Volcanoes, after a rapturous start from Devon Smith, reached 63 for 2 at the close of play.
