THE Leeward Islands Hurricanes were staring defeat in the face at stumps on Sunday, the second day of their sixth-round match in the Digicel Four-Day competition against the Barbados Pride being played at the Kensington Oval.Replying to the Pride’s first innings score of 313 all out, the Hurricanes were first routed for a paltry 163. Asked to follow on, they were 16 for 4 at the close, still needing another 134 runs to force the Pride to bat again.
Barbados, resuming from their overnight total of 302 for 8, were all out for 313. Promising paceman Alzarri Joseph dismissed both overnight batsman Justin Greaves for 38 and Jomel Warrican for 32, to end with figures of 5 for 42 off 24.2 overs. Both batsmen were on 30 overnight.
In their turn at bat, the Hurricanes soon found themselves eight wickets down with just 90 runs on the board. They eventually folded for 163 all out.
Had it not been for a tenth-wicket partnership of 73 between Nkrumah Bonner who scored 70 and Jason Campbell (39), things would have been much worse for the Hurricanes’ batsmen who were blown away by Kemar Roach 3 for 29, Miguel Cummins 3 for 34 and Kevin Stoute 2 for 29.
Following on 150 runs behind, the Hurricanes were soon in tatters again, at 16 for 4. There was a wicket each for Roach, Cummins, Jomel Warrican and Roston Chase.
Kacey Carty 12 and Gavin Tonge were the batsmen at the crease at stumps.
