Half-centuries by Devon Smith and Craig Emmanuel led a strong reply by the Windward Islands as they ended the third day on 180 for 3 in reply to Barbados's 365.
Resuming on 14 for no loss, Smith and Romel Currency added another 47 runs before Ryan Austin took the first wicket, that off Currency for 25 (61 for 1). Emmanuel and Smith added 60 runs as Windward Islands made steady progress towards gaining first-innings points. Both Smith and Emmanuel were lucky as Barbados grassed several chances. Austin once again provided the breakthrough, bowling Smith for 55.
Several overs were lost to rain but Emmanuel remained unbeaten on 51 and had added useful runs with Hyron Shallow, who was run out for 18, and Sergio Fedee (16 not out). Windwards need 186 runs to claim first-innings points and have seven wickets in hand.
