Pride vs Jaguars

Veerasammy Permaul produced a four-wicket haul to restrict Barbados Pride to 360 all out in 105 overs. The jaded Pride team are trailing by 188 runs failing to avoid the likely follow-on that may be enforced on the final day, today.

The Barbados Pride batsmen battled on the penultimate day with West Indies wicketkeeper-batsman Shane Dowrich scored a classy 81 while left-handed Jonathan Carter stroked 68. Resuming the day on 33-1, the Barbados Pride opener Kraigg Brathwaite and Captain Shamarh Brooks were the batsmen who looked to press on. The Test specialist, Brathwaite showed an array of textbook shots while Brooks was equally up to the task. Guyana Jaguars bowlers were disciplined, but they reaped their first success 19 overs before lunch. Brooks was out caught by Leon Johnson off the bowling of veteran spinner Permaul. Brooks, who scored 34 from 52 balls, stroked seven boundaries, after he departed with the score on 106-2 in 30.4 overs.

After a 73-run partnership between Brathwaite and Brooks, another followed soon after. The composed Brathwaite was dismissed by the lively Clinton Pestano when he was adjudged leg before, in his innings that included seven fours.
Barbados Pride were further reduced to 123-4 when two new batsmen were at the crease. Roston Chase, the middle-order Windies batsman who scored the most runs in the India Test series, was removed by Permaul. Left-arm spinner Permaul got little purchase from the pitch, but maintained a troubling line, removing Chase for one in the 41st over.
