Barbados 263 and 1 for 0 (Richards 1*, Blackman 0*) lead Leeward Islands 236 (S Liburd 55, Austin 6-86, Smith 3-32) by 28 runs
Barbados gained a first-innings lead of 27, with Ryan Austin, the offbreak bowler, taking 6 for 86 as Leeward Islands were bowled out for 236 on day two of their second-round Carib series match at Crab Hill in Barbados.
Resuming at their overnight score of 250 for 9, Barbados tail-enders Tino Best and Corey Collymore added only 13 more before Best was dismissed by Adam Sanford for 22.
Austin dismissed both Leewards openers for 41 but then Steve Liburd and Sylvester Joseph added 85 for the third wicket. Liburd was the top-scorer of the Leewards innings with 55 before he was trapped leg-before by Dwayne Smith who ended with figures of 3 for 32 from his 12 overs. No other Leewards batsman got to even 40.
The Barbados openers played out an over for one run before stumps were drawn.
Windward Islands 196 for 4 (Sammy 69*, Shallow 27*) trail Jamaica 289 (Sammy 4-51) by 93 runs
Windward Islands managed to reduce Jamaica's lead to 93 - losing four wickets in the process - and got to 196 on day two of their second-round Carib series match at the Beausejour Stadium in St Lucia.
Once the Windward bowlers had dismissed the last four Jamaican batsmen for 58 their openers raced to 66 before Devon Smith was run out for 26. Heron Campbell, the other opener, made 48 before he got out lbw to Nikita Miller, Jamaica's slow left-arm bowler. At stumps Darren Sammy was batting on 69 alongside Hyron Shallow on 27.
Trinidad and Tobago v Guyana
No play was possible on day two of the second-round Carib series match between Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana after heavy showers overnight as well as in the morning left the outfield of Guaracara Park waterlogged. The umpires called off play at 1.15 pm. Day one of the match was abandoned for the same reason.
