Jamaica 404 for 8 decl. (Pagon 155, Bernard 70) beat Leeward Islands 104 (Brown 5-6) and 99 (Miller 5-16, Brown 4-32) by an innings and 201 runs
Jamaica thumped Leeward Islands by an innings and 201 runs to complete their third win in as many games.
Batting first, Jamaica's ruthless accumulation was set up by Donovan Pagon's 155. He was assisted by strong contributions from Brendan Nash (40), Tamar Lambert (51) and David Bernard (70). The sequence of solid partnerships meant Leeward were always playing catch-up, despite offspinner Justin Athanaze's 3 for 102.
Spin continued to hold sway when Leeward batted, with legspinner Odean Brown rolling them over for 104 in the first innings. At 80 for 3, with Montcin Hodge and Devon Thomas holding sway, Leeward looked set for a good reply, but Brown ran up figures of 9.1-6-6-5 to skittle out Leeward.
Following on, Leeward fared even worse in their second innings, and that despite Kieran Powell's half-century. This time, Nikita Miller took on the lead role, scything through the middle and lower order to finish with 5 for 16. Brown indulged himself once again, picking up 4 for 32 as Leeward crumbled for 99. The result put the two sides at opposite ends of the points table, with Jamaica getting the full complement of 36 points from three outings, while Leeward have lost all their games.
