Cricinfo staff

Windward Islands 63 (Kelly 6-31) and 69 for 4 (Fedee 30*) need 132 more runs to beat Trinidad & Tobago 160 and 104 (Shillingford 4-20)

The match between Trinidad and Tobago and Windward Islands at Arnos Vale was intrigingly poised after the second day, with Windward needing 133 more for victory with six wickets in hand. Trinidad had been in charge after the first day, but Windward fought back well on the second. Their last two wickets added 40 more in the morning to take their first-innings total to 63. Then, their bowlers bundled out Trinidad for a paltry 104 in the second innings, with Shane Shillingford taking 4 for 20. Sergio Fedee led the Windward run-chase with an unbeaten 30, but on a pitch heavily favouring the bowlers, Trinidad would still fancy their chances of a victory. Earlier, Richard Kelly starred with both bat and ball for Trinidad - he took 6 for 31 in Windward's first innings, and then top-scored with 26, making exactly a quarter of his team's total.

Guyana 13 for 0 trail Jamaica 410 for 6 dec (Parchment 100, Baugh 100*, Bernard 84, Lambert 61) by 397 runs

Brenton Parchment and Carlton Baugh slammed hundreds as Jamaica piled on the runs on the second day against Guyana at the Sabina Park in Kingston. Both batsmen scored exactly 100, with Baugh remaining unbeaten when Jamaica declared on 410 for 6. It was Parchment's maiden first-class century and ended his poor trot which had kept him out of the side so far this season. David Bernard (84) and Tamar Lambert (61) chipped in with half-centuries as well, helping Jamaica amass a huge total. Narsingh Deonarine was Guyana's most successful bowler, taking 4 for 75. Guyana then had three over to bat late in the evening, and they negotiated that little passage safely, scoring 13 without loss.

Barbados 286 for 9 (Richards 79, Browne 66, Sanford 5-92) v Leeward Islands

A superb 126-run stand between Dale Richards and Pattrick Browne bailed Barbados out on the first day of their Carib Beer Cup match against Leeward Islands at Bridgetown. After winning the toss and choosing to bat, Barbados slumped to 87 for 5 before Richards and Browne got together. Both made half-centuries - Richards made 79 and Browne got 66 - as Barbados ended the day on 286 for 9. Adam Ssanford was Leeward's most successful bowler, taking 5 for 92.
