Windward Islands 63 (Kelly 6-31) and 202 for 9 (Sammy 59) beat Trinidad & Tobago 160 and 104 by one wicket
The Windward Islands pulled off an amazing victory over Trinidad & Tobago despite being bowled out for only 63 in their first innings. When the third day started at Arnos Vale the Windwards were 69 for 4, chasing 202 - and they just got there, with the last pair putting on 14 runs to squeak their side home. The Windwards had slipped to 101 for 6 before Darren Sammy, who made a vital 59, put on 56 with his captain Rawl Lewis (32). Sammy eventually fell to Reyad Emrit, caught by Sherwin Ganga who also removed Lewis. But Deighton Butler and Kenroy Peters inched the Windward Islands over the finishing line.
Guyana 191 (Deonarine 45) and 77 for 5 (Bernard 3-5) trail Jamaica 410 for 6 dec by 142 runs
Guyana are facing a huge defeat at Sabina Park, after slipping to 77 for 5 in their second innings after following on 229 behind Jamaica. Resuming on the third morning at 13 without loss in their first innings, Guyana slipped to 191 all out, with only Narsingh Deonarine (45) staying for long in the top order. Jamaica's surge was briefly held up by the Nagamootoo brothers, who put on 50 for the eighth wicket - Mahendra made 36 and Vishal 33. But, with Daren Powell and Nikita Miller both taking three wickets, Guyana were soon all out and batting again. This time it was Dave Bernard who did the damage, claiming 3 for 5 in only four overs as Guyana slumped to 77 for 5.
Barbados 292 (Richards 79, Browne 66, Sanford 6-98) lead Leeward Islands 273 for 4 (Morton 58, Williams 87*) by 19 runs
Leeward Islands took the upper hand on the second day of their match against Barbados at the Kensington Oval, finishing the day only 19 behind with six wickets in hand. After Adam Sanford took his sixth wicket to polish off Barbados for 292, the Leewards made a solid start. Shane Jeffers (48) and Tonito Willett (43) put on 76 for the first wicket, then Runako Morton, who made 58, shared a century stand with the 35-year-old former Test opener Stuart Williams, who was still there with 87 at the close.
